I mean, yeah, dresses are cool, make-up is cool, boobs can be cool sometimes I guess, but generally I'd like to think there's more to our experience than just these mostly superficial, gendered things.

    Am I alone in this feeling? Because it def feels that way.
    That's called the human experience and I'm sure there's a thread on that too.

    Okay, off the cuff and in no particular order:

    - the ability to not turn serious debates into pissing contests but focus on the issue (yay for moderate testosteron levels)
    - as other NT ladies have mentioned, a decent T/F balance
    - not having to wear a suit to more formal occasions and having more freedom of choice with our wardrobe
    - my small body needs little food and even less alcohol to become tipsy...this one is a real money savor!
    - my small fingers can untie tight little knots big man hands can't handle (they have their advantages on other occasion of course)
    - the ability to give birth and nourish a newborn (haven't done it yet, but is reportedly a big one)
    - having it comparatively easy to get sex when I want to
    - multiple orgasms
    - significantly lower risk of getting my reproductive organs painfully mashed up
    - lower risk of many hereditary deseases, the double X is really cool in that regard
    - so many details to love about the curvy body
    - this is sort of double edged, but: never getting searched by cops or border police because you look so friggin harmless they go for the guy with the shabby cloths instead and generally being treated more politely by them
    - sometimes being given more leniency to be playful
    - people having lower expectations at least means you get to suprise them and kick their ass once in a while
    - not being harassed for not caring about sports or preferring a night with a good book over a football game or a loud party
    - having better language skills, I love language
    - letting out the little girl with the curious eyes once in a while that still doesn't know what is supposed to be male or female or T or F or silly or serious and that likes Dickensian romance as much as dinosaurs and astrolabs and let her climb a tree or jump into a puddle like she used to before I put her back into the pocket and put on my adult face

    We should have our big-eyed little girls get together sometime to play in the mud.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Can I play too? I promise not to carve the sandbox into fiefdoms.

    To be honest there isn't too much I actually LOVE about being a woman. I think men got the better end of the gender stick.

    The things I can think of.....better shoes, and the ability to make ourselves look prettier than we actually are.

    And last but not least.......the men.
