It does not matter if you are the most competent person in the room. In classrooms or boardrooms, they always try and pin traditionally-female roles on women. These roles include party planning, decoration, and taking notes, among other things.
Secretary stuff and women things beneath the average man, who will assume a leadership role despite his incompetence. What if we told you we are party-planning magicians AND incredible leaders? It’s not a myth, and you can be like us too!
Red and White
A healthy diet and regular exercise are imperative to menstrual health. But do you know what else can summon the flow? Sleeping on white sheets — and they are usually freshly laundered. Something about light-colored sheets tricking our uteruses into believing it’s party time.
We drift off unsuspectingly, only to wake up in the land of the rising sun. It’s the same when you wear fancy underwear or plan a vacation.
Damned if You Do, Damned if You Don't
There is no winning this one. Whether you choose to wear makeup or not. Contrary to popular perception, women do not dress up or apply makeup for men, but usually for approval from other women.
Men seem unable to tell the difference between a “natural look” and “no makeup" anyway! They may notice obvious signs like bright red lipstick or blue eye shadow. If a woman looks “sick,” she is probably not wearing any makeup.
Nice Girls Finish Last
Guys tell us it sucks to have their motives questioned all the time. We get it, but after being burnt too many times, caution goes a long way. Male bosses want to meet up to discuss career options? It is never only about career options.
Guy friends who insist on helping you move? What's the catch? Things never end well for us, either way. Men accuse you of leading them on or say you “misread” the situation by assuming they are into you.
Long Hair = A Long Time to Get Ready
Girls with long hair. Have you lost count of how often people complain, cry, and whine about us taking long showers?
It takes time to shampoo, lather, rinse, and condition two feet of hair. We dare you — try getting long hair squeaky clean in under ten minutes. It is a process, and if hair tangles in between, God help us.
