Poll (submitted by Manseydoll - wins £10) results are pretty evenly split, with 55% of respondents saying, "Sure, I'd switch for a day," and 45% saying, "No, thank you."
Reasons to explore the opposite sex, if only for a day, might include stereotypical gender assumptions like women wanting to understand what it is like to stress a little bit less about their superficial looks. Men might want to know what it is like to get small courtesies paid to them without seeming to do anything to ask for it. Boys might want to know what it is like to be allowed to be quiet and reserved in the classroom. Girls might like to know what it is like to be picked first in gym class.
Gender stereotypes are still present in today's world, but the fact that 45% of respondents were not interested in switching temporarily says that the gender divide might be coming to an end. Or, at least we're getting closer to understanding one another a bit better and realizing that neither gender has it completely easy.
Reasons to remain? Men understand the pressures that women go through to look like they belong in a magazine. Women understand that being macho might be just as much of an emotional burden as being skinny.
Perhaps the 55% who would switch think that doing so would make it even more clear to them what they can do to help bring down the glass ceiling and raise more emotionally engaged men.
Tell us what your reasoning was! Would you switch sex for a day? Why or why not?
