@Broken Condom, The swing pushed the tummy fat up.
@Broken Condom, and also facial hair too!
Aww helll no it isn't anything like that for a guy, how bout anxiety, self esteem issues, just being absolutely lost on your feelings and having certain emotions and not knowing why!, painful growth spurts... I could go on and those are just by you not even adding other people
@MyLonewolf25, oh and men do have "periods" too they may not come every dam month but they are emotional hell
@MyLonewolf25, uncontrollable boners... And growing facial hair isn't that great
@MyLonewolf25, i have a beard but god damn is it itchy sometimes
@MyLonewolf25, let's not forget that, when we do have emotions, we can't show them, lest we be called weak.
@MyLonewolf25, I had none of these... just lots of growth in lots of different places... if you know what I mean. *Mr bean face*
@MyLonewolf25, oh yes I forgot the uncontrollable boners. Lmao they quite awkward when ur in a group of just guys.
@MyLonewolf25, wow down vote! I'm so hurt...
@MyLonewolf25, hey you piece of crap (their name who is down vote troll) I hope you have a nice day and feel better, *hands 55 gallon drum* because you might been this so you don't fvck your self so hard next time!
@MyLonewolf25, dude the same thing happens to girls...
@MyLonewolf25, yeah well at least you got no blood waterfall flowing out of you
@MyLonewolf25, ummm, from your posts, I think you may be a woman trapped in a woman's body... Men don't have periods. There is no point in the month where I get emotional, get cramps, bleed out my penis and need to use pads/tampons etc... If you suffer some or all of those symptoms and they persist, see your doctor or healthcare professional.
@Sweet Revenge, never said it didn't all I'm saying is the male side is bs
@MyLonewolf25, oh and I could even get going on the school system and abstinence only teaching and bla bla bla SO MUCH STUPID MISINFORMATION THAT HURTS US ABD PURPOSELY MISLEADS US
@Darthballz, no you're missing my point guys also get hormonal mood swings just like women on their period just to a lesser extent
@MyLonewolf25, "MANstruating" lol
@Darthballz, basically but no bleadinf
@MyLonewolf25, i cant tell if youre describing males or females because both go theough exactly that
@carguy25, hate the facial hair and the growing pains were terrible. There were times during growth spurts I would be so hungry it felt like my stomach was eating itself
In no way am I making light of the objectification of women, but I feel that the puberty for men and women are equal in terms of awfulness. For girls you have periods, cramping, zits, etc. I'm not saying that's not bad, but the periods and cramping are just once a month and most people don't know. For guys we have raging hormones that cause boners up to 20 times a day. There is no controlling them, and they always come right before your supposed to give a presentation or stand up. They are incredibly embarrassing and make middle school hell. Again, not making light of what girl puberty is like, just saying I think they're equal.
@Lord of Sloths, not to mention the fact that if you tuck your boner down instead of in your belt, the rubbing and friction can lead to, ahhh, sticky situations...
@Lord of Sloths, The point is, men get rain horny and can't do anything about it, which is torture becuase ALL day you have to sit there uncomfortable trying to stop thinking about sex.
@Lord of Sloths, Having erotic dreams and then having to clean your sheets in the morning sucks pretty bad too.
@Lord of Sloths, they're equal until you consider that women don't stop having painful periods until they're around 60
@Lord of Sloths, boners aint the only thing we got to worry about
@Lord of Sloths, and if you're like me with too much testosterone i got real aggressive
@Lord of Sloths, do you guys get stretch marks? Not being condescending, just asking lol
@Lord of Sloths, are you kidding me, I was that 7 years ago and I learned how to control it 6 years ago, and it's pretty easy and it's similar to pressing your thumb against your upper palette to stop a brain freeze, but in this case you don't do it to your mouth. Secondly, girls my age still have periods and will keep having them for about the next 30 years, yea 30 MORE YEARS. Some will die before they stop. And it happens for like a week every month. It's not like you get a fast one a month and then you're good. Personally if I were a girl and I found out that was gonna happen to me every month pretty much forever, I would just have them removed. Way too much of a problem for me to deal with. Trust me in this comparison guys are Bill Gates who some times drives with over inflated tires, and girls are poor homeless people that get run over every month. Guys have it infinitely better.
@Lord of Sloths, That and, y'know, the fvcking growing pains and testosterone throwing your emotions out of whack.
@Lord of Sloths, my friend told me that he was talking to a girl, the hormones kicked in, and she looked down. All she said was "so that's what you think of me."
@Lord of Sloths, except eventually those problems go away for guys. Girls keep having periods until menopause
@NotA90kid, if you're a girl and you get horny once, you get to remember it all day by the cold goo in your panties
@Comment Stalker, Ya, neither sides have it good, the whole, "facial hair" isn't good. It grows in awkward patches and mixed with acbe, impossible to shave.
@SimonPetrikov, Lol i love it when guys try to justify why they have it just as bad as girls when we really dont
@niffler, Well if we're speaking honestly...yeah period trumps all. It's not all peachy like the comic implies, but girls do have it worse.
Puberty sucks for everyone, but objectively I think it's worse for girls. Emotional ups and downs are hard for both girls and guys (and this comic doesn't mention that because it's, well, a comic) and physical changes are rough too for both genders, but girls have to deal with a week of pain every month, as well as becoming increasingly objectified as their bodies change. Not that dudes aren't objectified on some level too, but the average woman's body is more likely to be sexualized or commented on in an inappropriate way than guys' bodies are.
@Carmen Sandiego, yeah but being objectified does suck but being horny all the time also sucks, as a girl you gotta be very ugly to not get any if you wanted so you are able to be picky so while its great its value is lower. For guys even decent looking guys have gotta work at it a bit and more as you go down the scale. And have more fun we have that nagging voice that even as we learn to control it is always there like a perpetual itch just begging us to do something stupid. And there's no period of time for it, it's there until we scratch it, we get a small bit of happy then the itch gets stronger until it stops working... Then we have an itch and two broken hands
Puberty be like: In public? Here, have a boner!
Ohh my what have you done! *sips tea* it seems we're gonna have a comment War. WAITOR! bring me my toilet cozy I'm gonna be here a while.
