Default Why do you love being a woman?

I love being a woman because we tend to be more nurturing.

There's plenty to love about being a woman. Although, in 2017 I'm hesitant to write them out publically. (<---I can actually pull that off with a subtle lash flutter )

Oh gosh that's interesting healing4me, I am having the same reaction (I think!)

I don't want to stereotype myself!! But here goes...

I like that I was able to grow a person, bring him into the world, then nurture that tiny baby, feed him myself with my own body.

I like that I have curves and if I wear the right clothes look womanly.

I don't wear make up often but it's nice to sometimes.

Lots of things to like about being a woman.

I have always found that most men I encounter are very helpful and protective. Having served in the military, I noticed the guys were not treating each other that way.

I have noticed that little children and even many dogs come up to me and my daughter instantaneously--they seem more hesitant about approaching men. Who doesn't love children and dogs?

I loved breastfeeding my children.

At work, sometimes we need to move barricades around--they always say--"let the guys do that"--good thing, if I was asked I would have to admit that I can't (an injury) so I can hide my disability easier than a male could....

I like my curves and would not want to wear what guys wear with the exception of T-shirts and blue jeans. Plus I do not like my hair short.

Women are not weak when we are in a group--watch out bad bosses and many times my husband hears the same messages from his mother, sister, and sister-in-law as he does me. He has no chance to dominate when we are together and make up our mind. My sister calls this GIRL POWER!

I feel women get away with more than men....and I got the damsel in distress act down very well.

I like being able to express myself sensitively and be taken care of. I like being soft and affectionate. I like having the option of wearing makeup and dressing up in lots of pretty colors if I want to. I like not having to worry about extra baggage down below... I don't know, I just like being a woman.

I am very strong emotionally, and I rock!

Seriously, women give life and we are wise and strong.

I like being a woman because I like my body shape, I feel feminine and my curves. The only thing I don't like is that I tend to get very emotional especially near the time of month.

I don't really but i see no point in going through all the trouble of changing my physical sex when i have lived so long already as a female. I can live as a female, its alright, not the best though. Changing my sex would just complicate everything in my life.

I love the clothes. Men's clothes are just too simplistic. Women's clothes are more diverse, plus they fit the body in ways that are just sexier than men's clothing. Not that men aren't good looking in the clothes that they wear.

I like to hug.

I like hearing a man say something about me and getting to respond to that. I like to flirt even though I have social anxiety. I feel like if I were a man, I woman would never come on to me. I hardly notice women coming on to men.
