10 Reasons It's Wonderful to Be a Woman

10 Reasons It's Wonderful to Be a Woman

I was going to call this "10 Reasons Why It's Awesome to Be a Women," in homage to the Yahoo Answers post yesterday, but I knew if I did, both you and a copy editor would think it was a typo. Anyhoo, here are my 10 favorite reasons from Dave's Daily (a man drew this up!) that it's wonderful to be a woman. (And since it seems necessary — yes, this is a joke.)

  • Women aren't covered with hair like shag carpeting.
  • If a woman inexplicably disappears for two weeks, one of her friends will notice.
  • A woman can fully assess a person just by looking at their shoes.
  • Women can be groupies. Male groupies are stalkers.
  • A woman can get a whole new lease on life just by changing her lipstick.

Want to see my other faves? Then


  • Women never lust after a cartoon character or the central figure in a computer game.
  • Women can admit to others when they've made a mistake.
  • Women know who their children are without having a DNA test.
  • Women have total control over their eyebrows.
  • Women can get drunk quicker and cheaper than men.

I'm just going to take it as more of a joke book than a bible. We all know that the best reason for being a woman is because we get to have babies. :baby:

This is a funny list to me, especially since I was in a group of guys who were discussing the benefits of being a guy, and how lucky they are to NOT be girls. (And yes, I was sitting there for the whole conversation.)

I liked the old format myself. But I do understand the business part of everything. Sometimes when a decision is made, its just really hard to reverse things. I still enjoy my time on both sites. Cheers~ Grantz

Just being a woman. Period. I love it! Funny list though ;)

It was funny and such a typical male list... I'd hope that no guy really thinks these things of women because I can tell you that I don't fall into many of those reasons. haha... I'm South Asian so I was born with body hair issues!

Saying "It.Is.A.Joke" is quite rude, don't ya think? People who come here are still reocevring from the loss of their favourite site like dear or citizen, and not giggle. We don't need jokes with every entry, ok?

the only normal thing on that list is the DNA... this is so going downhill. whoever laid of the girls and created this mess should really rethink it.

I knew that all this hullabaloo was going to happen behind this list. Tres - I thought it was funny and so did my office. And to everyone who says that Tres doesn't know her readers - Did you all forget that this is Citizen, Dear and GIGGLE sugar combined? People who surfed Citizen aren't the only ones still surfing Tres. The combining was a bad idea but it is all combined nonetheless.

Wow, what a bunch of obnoxious people around here! Self-righteous and completely devoid of any sense of humor. I'm sorry for you Tres, I am sure it must be hard to start you column here with such a poor welcome. I like your feature a lot, I just wish it didn't replace Dear Sugar and Citizen, which I thoroughly miss. Your articles are off beat and interesting, but they can't stand in for features we'd been used to for years. It's not your fault! People are creatures of habit... So hang in there, even if these early times are tough. Also, please hire a new copy editor. I'm a stickler for spelling and grammar, so I'd be happy to take the job - anything to stop having to endure all those mistakes! Ouch...

This list was really obnoxious, and it really failed as a 'joke'. I don't consider myself a 'feminist', but this list was sexist (to both genders!), and not in a remotely clever or ironic way. And Tres, if you're going to be a blogger on such a big network, you might want to get thicker skin.

"Women know who their children are without having a DNA test." I like this one! This.Is.A.Combination.Between.Giggle.Citizen.And.Dear.Sugar.If.You.Don't.Like.Skip.Please.

this whole thread reminds me of a great joke: Q: How many feminists does it take to change a light bulb? A: That's not funny!!!!

And Tres, you clearly don't know your readership. Maybe you guys should have worked on that before combining sites?

Another point for men. If someone disagrees with a man, people don't just assume the man is hormonal and write them off. :oy:

"Women never lust after a cartoon character or the central figure in a computer game." Speak for yourself :lol: ;)

Here's a point for men: they don't ride the hormonal train and lose their sense of humor. I say this with love, ladies. On second thought, my husband has his times too.
