In case you didn’t notice because you live in a cave without wifi connection: it’s International Women’s Day. Some might think it’s overrated… well we can assure you it’s not. If you read our article about feminism, you’d probably agree. Or you lack empathy, that’s another option.

Anyway, enough is said already about why women need their own special day. We’d almost forget that there are also the perks of being a woman.

1. Women are generally smarter

Several studies proved that girls have better grades in school, higher IQs and that they are more likely to graduate than their male counterparts. Sorry guys…

2. Boobs!

Let’s just admit that God clearly was more inspired when he created the female body. Soft curves, less body hair, no weird sausage with 2 balls dangling in the middle and boobs. Next to the microwave and dishwasher, boobs were definitely the best invention ever. without question!

3. You can show your emotions everywhere, all the time

One of the “weaknesses” women posses is the fact that they’re more emotional (we rather see this as a strength but whatever). This also means that you can show how you feel all day, every day without being labeled as a loser. And that can be such an amazing relief!

4. Women have a lot more to wear

Just go shopping with a guy and you’ll know what we’re talking about. The fashion possibilities for women are almost endless. And even though men are doing their very best to catch up… they have a long way to go. Maybe it’s about to introduce the mini skirt and cropped tops for boys next season. So the female population also has something to whistle and yell at.

5. You don’t have to worry about going bald

Sorry, not sorry!

And never forget…

With a little effort we can all live happily ever after!
