    24 Trivial Reasons Why Being A Female Is A Real Pain

    Pockets! We demand pockets!

    1. None of our clothes have pockets, or at least not sufficient ones, so when they do we have to show them off!

    “I love your outfit!” Thanks! It has pockets! 😊

    2. And hoops are never the exact right size.

    3. It's not uncommon to only have one comfy bra that you wear all of the time.

    4. But you do have to juggle at least 7 chapsticks at a time.

    5. You usually have quite a few creepy messages after a night out, though they can be pretty funny.

    10. They literally never fit right and even if they do, after you wash them they always change.

    11. Low ponytails can either be "fashion" or "18th-century man".

    12. Things are weirdly gendered and we're expected to want the most everyday objects in pink.

    13. And boobs just don't behave.

    14. You're expected to always sit with your legs crossed.

    15. And you get called "cute" all the time even though you're a fucking badass.

    16. There's a whole aftermath to washing your hair which is just really gross.

    17. And getting your eyebrows done can be a bit of an ordeal.

    18. We're expected to give a shit about our bra straps.

    21. Playsuits don't seem to be designed for the human body.

    Noooo but a bodysuit/playsuit is any drunk girls toilet nightmare 😩

    22. Wearing lacey pants seems sexy and great in your head, but really you create a lil’ pube fountain.

    23. And your toe hair is stubborn AF.

    24. And finally, a lot of clothes just don’t seemed to be designed for us to actually move in.
