I came across these set of reasons on the web a couple of says ago and I could not resist posting them here. This is especially so when I promised some of my class's guys (chao in particular) after our badminton match that I will be posting this.
They are amusing in their own right. However, please take them with a pinch of salt. It goes without saying that these reasons may be deemed offensive to some. If you classify yourself in this group, I strong suggest you give this post a miss. (Thats why I did not place this at the top.)
Its helpful to note that some advantages of being a guy are also disadvantages of being a girl and vice versa.
I was wondering which one to put first. Since its commonly "ladies first" (no matter how much I dislike this bias sometimes), the 100 reasons why its better to be a girl is here
