This has nothing to do with having a penis and everything to do with being a man in this society. Those are not the same thing.

I am happy when men try to understand what women go through. What I am not happy with are men saying what they would do if they were a woman.

How many times do I have to hear a man say what he would do in a certain situation, when they have NONE of the baggage that comes with being a woman?
