Every woman knows — being a woman is tough! Besides the ~casual sexism~ thrown about on the daily, we still have to put up with some unrealistic societal standards sometimes.

These are just some things perpetuated in our everyday lives, and it’s NOT ok! Here are 7 tweets that show why being a woman is tough.

1. Pink Tax And The Perpetuation Of Beauty Standards

Ah, the all too familiar world of double standards… we won’t be surprised if men eventually start using the same product to wash their cars and their faces!

2. People Tell You That Your Standards Are “Too High”

Well, what’s wrong with having high standards if you are a thriving boss lady who has hustled hard for her success?

3. Blatantly Sexist Statements Disguised As “Jokes”

Instead of asking us to “lighten up” and learn how to take a joke — how about you learn how to make one?

4. The Orgasm Gap

Yet another gap we need to be talking about. But the question is – why is the female orgasm made out to be some mystical phenomenon?

5. Mansplainers Are Everywhere

No matter what the topic is – periods, pregnancy, parenthood, there will be a man waiting to mansplain away!

6. We Usually Aren’t “Cool” Enough

Yes, of course we can knock back beers, finish a servings of rice, fried chicken and ice cream!

Just don’t expect us to always look snatched, without a single hair out of place. And don’t expect us to always want to do the same things you want to.

Sometimes we want to have our Starbucks lattes and trendy doughnuts — don’t shame us for not being a “bro”!

7. We Do A LOT Of Heavy Lifting — Literally

Do you even lift, bro?

Jokes aside, this may seem like a small thing, but our handbags are not for you to conveniently put your wallet and phone into! And we dare you to say, “Who told you to bring a big bag out?”

Because we won’t hesitate to swing that bag into you and make you feel the weight of our womanliness.
