5 Reasons We All Hate Being A Woman, Sometimes!

image1-3

Being a woman isn’t always as simple and glamorous as it seems, in fact we all have those moments were we wish we could be a guy for a day just to see how it feels *cough* unintended innuendo!! Here are 5 reasons we all hate being a woman… well, sometimes!

Heels

Lets face it heels aren’t all they’re cracked up to be are they? They might look great and give our legs that length and definition we see on magazine covers but they hurt and then there we are trying to walk in them, a 4-6 inch heel along the uneven paved streets of London where gutters and grates lay amoung them, its a talented task if you ask me!! If only men knew the struggle instead of moaning at us for moaning about them! I write this yet in a few minutes time I’ll probably be shopping for a beautiful new pair.

Periods

Oh mother nature how you have screwed us! Periods all weird and not so wonderful are the bain of our lives!! How inconvenient and painful those things can be. I myself suffer from really heavy, painful periods and they are so inconsistent with their schedule that they always seem to greet me at the most awkward times! Better stock up on a weeks worth of tampons and sanitary towels, oh and don’t forget not to wear any nice looking underwear for the duration! To top it off you get those idiots on Twitter telling women that they need to hold in their flow, and if they can’t control their (and I quote) “bladder” they’re disgusting and lazy! You can also count on looking and feeling bloated the entire week whilst involuntarily stuffing your face with icecream, chocolate and all things junk, I suppose thats the perk!

Appearance

Theres a pressure and an expectation to always look amazing!!! Thanks to todays standards and the good old internet there are these ridiculous expectations of how a woman should look. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m far from perfect – I’m 5,2, my weight fluctuates, I have stretch marks, cellulite and wax my upper lip! No matter how you look something will always be criticised by someone, your weight, hair colour, how smooth your skin is, if you shave your armpits or not, breast size, how well you apply your makeup, if you’re naturally beautiful… I could go on! The more expectation the less confidence and self esteem we’re all left with. We can’t all look like a Kardashian, we probably can’t afford it anyway!!

Feminism

FYI I don’t hate feminism I LOVE it!! I just hate that if and when we talk up for our gender we’re usually classed as man haters! The truth is women are portrayed differently to men and the fact we’re even paid less speaks for itself, who the hell doesn’t think thats an issue worth talking about!? Times are moving on but sadly not fast enough, which unfortunatley for us means we are still being put into a box, within our job roles, roles in the home, roles in relationships and constant social stigmas! I’m a woman who is quite capable of doing any job a man can do. I’m a women who shouldn’t be expected to do all of the housework. I’m a women and I will not have sex if I don’t want to. I’m a women who shouldn’t need a man to protect me. I’m a woman that only wants to be taken seriously!

Catcalling

Is it possible to walk out of the house without having someone ogle and shout degrading, distasteful shit at us!? Get this, I was walking down the street with one of my children, this dude in his van literally stopped right next to me acting quite intimidating only to shout “oi oi, now thats an ass I’d like a ride on”. Not only was I shocked because I’m quite obviously with my son, I’m in a state of shock because I can’t quite believe he thinks thats a line thats going to pick me up! Its moments like these I have little faith in the human race and worry how both my sons will end up! Then sometimes you get those people that literally hassle you. You could be showing no interest at all even to the point where you’ve started ignoring them but something still doesn’t click, they still don’t leave you alone! Catcalling is not at all classy!!

So really, I love being a woman. Its just that sometimes, very rarely, but sometimes I don’t.

      Isn’t it!? Glad you enjoyed it 🙂

  1. Angela October 26, 2016 / 7:14 pm

    So true. I don’t like periods but… I hardly get them so I guess I am lucky in one way but not in another. I don’t like cat calling.

    • cheskaaanels October 26, 2016 / 7:36 pm

      Oh wow that must be annoying in a way as you’re not sure when its going to happen at all!!

  2. fashionandstylepolice October 26, 2016 / 7:40 pm

    ‘An ass I want to ride on’? In front of the child? That is so crazy. It made me laugh though. I hate that bit about being a woman too.

    • cheskaaanels October 27, 2016 / 6:35 am

      Sometimes I feel we got the short straw!

    • cheskaaanels October 27, 2016 / 6:36 am

      Isn’t it awful that we are left feeling embarrassed as opposed to the people that do the catcalling!

  3. LaaLaa (@LaaLaaMonroe) October 27, 2016 / 8:29 am

    Oh yes, heels. I don’t mind heels once my feet have got use to them, I’m currently re-training my feet to get use to heels again. x

  4. whatudidntknow October 27, 2016 / 11:27 am

    Haahahahaha! So true! It’s hard work being a woman 😉

  5. Rhian Westbury October 27, 2016 / 12:51 pm

    Yes to every single one of these. Heels are the worst, I hate them and rarely ever wear them, if people think less of me on a night out then screw them haha. x

    • cheskaaanels October 27, 2016 / 1:30 pm

      Hahaha I’m the same I’m sure I’ve done serious damage to my feet!! No more!

  6. LuxeStyle October 27, 2016 / 1:39 pm

    I love how heels look but hate wearing them! I never wear them anymore, which is probably a good idea when my hubby is the same height as me 🙂

  7. jojo140883 October 27, 2016 / 2:29 pm

    I can relate to all of these. I have Endometriosis so suffer terrible periods and don’t even get me started on heels x

    • cheskaaanels October 27, 2016 / 4:20 pm

      The doctors thought I had that but once I got pregnant they stopped any investigation into it! Must go back!

  8. Yaya (@mydreamality) October 27, 2016 / 3:40 pm

    Oh the perils of heels! Being a woman is fascinating, but sometimes it can really suck. x

  9. Colette B October 27, 2016 / 4:48 pm

    Right now I’m definitely with you on the period thing – since having my kids they’ve become so much heavier and more painful – which is annoying as they no longer serve any purpose and I’d quite like to be able to switch them off 😉

    • cheskaaanels October 27, 2016 / 5:08 pm

      Oh no that sounds awful!! Oh me too wish we didn’t have to face it every month!

  10. joannavictoria October 27, 2016 / 6:35 pm

    Oh yes so true, periods are a right pain some months for me as I never know when they will come thanks for having PCOS.

  11. .Sara.🎃🍁 (@OoSerzoO) October 27, 2016 / 7:15 pm

    Everything you’ve wrote – SO true!! Definitely ALL of these! Especially the periods, I’ve really been suffering with hormones lately and it truly sucks. GREAT POST! xx

  12. Samantha Rickelton October 27, 2016 / 8:07 pm

    With you on all of these things – I REALLY hate wearing heels though and I’m definitely a flats kinda gal

  13. Jessica October 27, 2016 / 8:16 pm

    I cannot wear heels to save my life, I can just about bare wearing boots with a bit of a lift, 5 mins walking down London roads and I’m complaining. Don’t even get me started on periods, either don’t have them or always on it :/

    Omg what idiots catcalling you like that, especially in front of your little man! Ugh!

    Loved this post though! Laughed a bit and said “preach” way too much haha

    • cheskaaanels October 27, 2016 / 8:32 pm

      Hahahaha I can imagine you sitting their shouting preach at this!! PAHA! Ahh don’t I hate heels although when we meet up in December I’m gonna have to stick on a pair of heeled boots!!

  14. nicol October 27, 2016 / 9:08 pm

    deciding what to wear for a special occasion. i swear men have it easton this haha

  15. Ana De Jesus October 27, 2016 / 9:31 pm

    Right? When I tell people that I am a feminist people think I am a man hater when in reality I campaign for equality between both sexes.

    • cheskaaanels October 28, 2016 / 8:15 am

      Thats exactly it!! People just don’t like women talking up!

  16. Ruxandra October 27, 2016 / 9:58 pm

    Your post is so on point! Every time I cam cat called, every time I have my periods those are moments when I hate being a woman. But I guess enduring all those things makes us stronger, right?

    • cheskaaanels October 28, 2016 / 8:15 am

      We must be super women to put up with all we do haha!

  17. hannahhowell912 October 27, 2016 / 10:30 pm

    I hate heels with a passion, I actually refuse to wear them haha

  18. Jodie October 27, 2016 / 11:01 pm

    Yes to all except heels! I never wear them, as always was described as tall so got used to wanting to be smaller and controversially i hate shoes (maybe i’m not a woman).Love this post yet! I am still mad we have to pay for sanitary towels/tampons. You get condoms free at family health clinics, why not them too? However I don’t want to rant in your comment section…

    • cheskaaanels October 28, 2016 / 8:18 am

      I love a good rant don’t you worry!! I never thought of that actually you have a point if Condoms are free why are sanitary products not!? I’m one for agreeing they should be free to us!

  19. Sarah Bailey October 27, 2016 / 11:58 pm

    Haha this is awesome – I totally admit I have given up on wearing heels ever! x

  20. Liz Mays October 28, 2016 / 3:56 am

    The period is the worst part of it for me. I am SO over that!

    • cheskaaanels October 28, 2016 / 8:19 am

      Urgh definitely a constant reminder of why being a woman sucks every month!

  21. Dannii October 28, 2016 / 12:45 pm

    Obviously I haven’t had a period since being pregnant, and I am not looking forward to it coming back again.

    • cheskaaanels October 28, 2016 / 1:05 pm

      Ahhh I loved being pregnant for that that reason!!

  22. Claire'scomfycorner October 28, 2016 / 2:51 pm

    I refuse to wear heels, they are so uncomfortable and I’m ok with being small in height 🙂

  23. Anosa October 28, 2016 / 6:29 pm

    I love wearing 👠 and can’t get enough of them. Periods on the other hand I am always ready to trade up when they come lol

    • cheskaaanels October 29, 2016 / 8:21 am

      Ahh I feel miserable every time I remember its not long until it returns!

  24. MELANIE EDJOURIAN October 29, 2016 / 1:15 am

    Lol great post. I must agree it’s hard work but most men I know couldn’t cope being a woman.

  25. Rachel October 29, 2016 / 11:06 am

    I hardly ever wear heels owing to have fallen arches so it is uber painful, but I do love pretty shoes x

  26. Sarah (@lavenderlifeco) October 29, 2016 / 11:58 am

    I hate the catcalling as well! And when I complain about it (or about sexism at school/work/life) people also immediately assume I hate men or that I’m just some weirdo… It’s pretty sad.

    • cheskaaanels October 29, 2016 / 12:36 pm

      I know right?? They look at us really weirdly its just common bloody sense that we should all be treated the same!

  27. secretplussizegoddessblog October 29, 2016 / 2:38 pm

    I really couldn’t agree more! Heels are the bane of my life at the moment. They look great but are horrendous !!

  28. Sarahjane October 29, 2016 / 9:29 pm

    Great post!!! I got the lovely visit from Mother Nature today so I’m with you all the way! I love heels though! Happily put up with the pain!

    • cheskaaanels October 30, 2016 / 9:12 am

      Hahaha I do put up with the pain but I regret it when I eventually get home to take them off!

  29. Viki Marden October 29, 2016 / 10:04 pm

    This is so true, it’s only three for me though as I barely wear heels and I never really get catcalled (so glad) x

    • cheskaaanels October 30, 2016 / 9:13 am

      I have to say you really aren’t missing out there haha!

  30. Ali October 29, 2016 / 11:26 pm

    Absolutely, I agree with all of these especially periods – I hate it, it’s so unfair that men don’t have to suffer in the same way!!

    • cheskaaanels October 30, 2016 / 9:13 am

      Hahaha they don’t have periods, they don’t do childbirth. It all seems a little unfair haha

  31. stephanie October 30, 2016 / 3:20 pm

    Completely agree with you, sometimes being a woman is no fun at all! x

  32. Rachel October 30, 2016 / 10:03 pm

    Haha totally agree with this post! I have a love/hate relationship with Heels.. I wish I was one of those people whose feet just aren’t fazed by them! xo

  33. Nayna Kanabar (@citrusspiceuk) October 30, 2016 / 10:30 pm

    I totally agree that a lot of these things are annoying, but there are also lots of nice things in being a woman.

    • cheskaaanels October 30, 2016 / 11:28 pm

      There are, I love being a woman but as I said at the end, sometimes very rarely but sometimes I don’t!

  34. Zena's Suitcase November 1, 2016 / 5:08 pm

    I gave up wearing heels a long time ago, and periods are horrid. I’m not a fan of bra’s either but the are a necessary evil

  35. Iza (@IzaAbao) November 11, 2016 / 12:45 pm

    I hate menstrual cramps. I make sure that I have Tylenol with me always. I have not worn high heels for a long time because I used to work in the kitchen. It is nice to wear a pair of sexy heels from time to time but they just cause me pain. I think most women aspire to be like the girls who we see on tv and social media. However, their lifestyles are very different from regular women. Let’s just embrace who we are and be proud.

    • cheskaaanels November 11, 2016 / 1:20 pm

      I love this comment I couldn’t agree more with you!

  36. fashionmommywm November 13, 2016 / 10:22 pm

    I love this post – periods, feet, you’ve got it all in here!

  37. Ella Louise November 16, 2016 / 1:12 pm

    This couldn’t be more spot on! Heels is a big one for me! I complain about them and get annoyed at the hubby for not understanding the struggle but then proceed to buy more! 🙈
    Recently followed! Look forward to reading more.

    • cheskaaanels November 16, 2016 / 1:42 pm

      Hahaha its always the way isn’t it!? Before a night out now my hubs will be like ‘Are those shoes gonna end up hurting!?’ Awwh thank you, hope you enjoy the content! xox

      • Ella Louise November 16, 2016 / 1:45 pm

        Exactly!! Omg. Every time, and by saying it while we’re getting ready it sets them up to say ‘i told you so’ later on! Which means I’ll suffer in silence just so he doesn’t have that luxury! Lol. The struggles! xx

        • cheskaaanels November 16, 2016 / 2:36 pm

          Hahaha Oh my goodness I do that!!! Hilarious! xox
