Not really but a few times I did get an answer like I hiding from my boyfriend who is so jealous he kills anyone I even talk to.

Nope, typical of the girls here. Most of them struck me as being seriously disturbed.

Appearances can be deceiving as the old adage says but in this case it is a reliable indicator. I think that due to modern pressure to excel in the same fields as men do but still maintain their femininity has driven half of them mad. Also dating guys must truly be a horrendous experience.

Adriana always says she'd hate to be a guy, and that being a girl was much better. A lot of girls I've met have said that -- they don't know what they're missing. (And perhaps neither do we.)

I would not want to be a woman for anything. I think that men have much the better of it. But I am not sure what that "it" really is.

Gender is a concept that is built into us from the time we are born. Why would someone in their right mind want to change their gender?

No one is better. To ensure that you're doing correct, you need to have a balance of both.

I think I'm okay because a internet quiz by the bbc which ranked women 100 units left and men 100 units right aligned me exactly at the center

I did not say better, I said the better of it.

Life in general. Men do better because society is biased towards us.

The forum is about maths, not life.

That is true but I give the OP a lot of freedom in every thread. All sorts of discussions are tolerated as long as there is not a legitimate complaint. This can be viewed as zetafunc.'s thread.

Is zetafunc having a problem with being a man?

He meant that each gender can not possibly understand what it is to be the other gender. Both sides have good points and bad. I prefer and chose my current one.

Why not?

Hmmm, I rarely read modern books. I avoid physics, logic, topology, group theory, set theory, astrophysics, psychology, genetics, anything by Dawkins...

Okay, it is not modern. It is not physics, logic, topology, group theory, set theory, astrophysics, psychology, genetics, anything by Dawkins...

So, check it out...
