Women's Tolerance Level

March 31st, 2009
By

So the other night, I was watching wifey as she plucked some hairs out of her face (eyebrows) and I cringed at the thought of doing that to myself.

We often tease women that they are so emotional and that they cry senselessly over romantic movies, or that they would get the biggest bruise over the smallest, lightest bump into the coffee table, but we don't give them enough credit for their high tolerance in pain.

They shave, pluck, and pull every hair out known to (wo)man. They unload a 5-10 pound "bag of rice" from "their loins" (props leerz) when giving birth. Heck, they even have to deal with a monthly "friend" who comes with (I'm told) cramps, headaches, moodiness and the like.

What do we men have to do? Put on deodorant periodically and perhaps not fart in front of company from time to time. Not a bad deal if you ask me.

I honestly don't think I can handle being a woman. The heck with romantic movies, plucking a single hair out of my face or pushing "rice" through my body would make ME cry. Fo sho.

So here's to you, you tough, tolerant women. Mad props. ;)

Talk to me!
* Fellas, do you groom your eyebrows? Why? :P
* Ladies, without getting too graphic/personal, what's the most painful hair to pluck?
* What do you think the toughest thing we men have to do is?
* Aren't nose hairs the worst to pluck!?!? That's death!
* Did I miss anything?

P.S. Be on the lookout for the link to my exclusive Justin Young Interview in tomorrow's AroundHawaii.com!

    Groom eyebrows? on occasion...da older you get, hair starts to sprout where they haven't been a problem before. I would be talking to my son and all of a sudden, he says, "eh, get one long hair sticking out of your eyebrow, eeeeyuuu!" So I go pluck em. I have a Okinawan friend who has a bush growing in his ears but no bahda me so I don't say anything.

    Early on, my wife plucked white hairs. I helped her sometimes. Anyway, it was a lost cause and she didn't want to dye so now her hair is completely white...stunningly so. In fact, she has had many compliments from complete strangers who stop her to admire her hair.

    Being good is the the toughest thing...still learning after 60+ years.

    Nose hair plucking not da worst. In fact hair plucking is no biggie, unless you talking several hairs at once, then its a pain in the butt...sorry, couldn't resist. And no, I don't pluck those.

    Great subject Ed.


  2. kuya.d:

    eyebrows, sometimes gotta pluck or trim because I have to admit *sigh* I get the grandpa brows, those few, longer than the rest kind. And I gotta agree, nose hair plucking equals immediate tear duct emissions - guaranteed!


  3. MakiSushi:

    I get old man eyebrows too, so once in a while gotta trim'um. If my barber notice she trim'um for me. Tanks.

    Women are very patient too, das why they spend so much time plucking etc. They take time! and das why the toughest ting us husbands gotta do is wait for women! in da car! "Eh, come on, we going be late!" I hope you no talk li'dat, Ed. :smile:


  4. uji:

    edward..

    something to look forwar to.. once you hit about 35 or so, hairs just seem to pop out of everywhere: eyebrows, ears, nose, etc..

    just get a good pair of tweezers.. gives you something to do during downtime..


  5. skycastles:

    Why you guys gotta pluck/trim the long eyebrow hairs? Just let them grow and you can dress up as one sifu like in the movies for Halloween. You'd have to commit to the long beard too though.


  6. Center Of Thought:

    God bless women...


  7. tita leerz:

    Oh I got props! Now if I can only get a "Where in Hawaii..."

    Bruddahz....you ever got your upper lip waxed?!

    And...even if you get an epidural when you pushing bag rice, you ever seen the needle? OK, this might get a little graphic---women get MAD cramps because it's the same "mechanism" for pushing bags of rice. So the cramps are really contractions! Even if not pushing out bag rice, still gotta push out. Know what I mean?! So when we have da-kine contractions, men should be treating us as if they were real contractions...massages, waiting on us hand and foot, do our chores....etc. This should prepare you (men) for when you gotta deal with the real day. And if you and wife pau wid pushing rice, it would serve as an occasional (monthly) reminder of how tolerant your woman really is! :p

    Oh, and then there's breastfeeding and teething. Or should I say breastfeeding while teething!


  8. rayboyjr:

    For me, the hardest thing men have to deal with in a relationship (w/gf or wife) is those times when we are berated or lectured by our gf/wife for something we did or said. Right or wrong, most of the time we’ll sit there and take it without a response cause we know saying something might just make things worse. Can’t win, so why risk adding fuel to the fire?

    As for pain tolerance, I absolutely can’t fathom how women can have hot wax spread over their body and then with a cloth strip, pull and rip the hair out. YEOWWW!!! I keep thinking of the scene from the 40 Year Old Virgin movie.


  9. uji:

    do you know what 3rd-world anesthesia is for a caesarean section delivery.. hold down arms and legs and plug ears..

    my younger sis is an anesthetist, about two months ago they had a major screw-up with an emergency c-section on a baby that they had maybe 3 minutes to get out.. not enough time to get the drugs onboard..

    so without realizing it, they did it 3rd-world style..

    later, after they saved the baby, the woman thanked them..

    no contest on woman vs. men on pain.. not even close..

    and not just at birthing time... really throughout life..


  10. Chicken Grease:

    Pluck my eyebrows. No. I USED to have a platinum man-card. Now I have the black one. And now, man-card central wants to send me an even more upgraded card and an increase all the time 'til my last days. Real men cut their own fingernails (and they don't "do" them; they CUT their fingernails when they get long) and no finish is allowed on those fingernails afterward. Vegetables are for eating, not putting on your face. And burlap, please -- men, don't sleep anywhere NEAR silk.

    And, you know what? Women ARE stronger than men. That's that.


  11. NeedaHobby:

    So here's to you, you tough, tolerant women.

    a la Budweiser commercial, Ed? ;)

    I think men have it rough when they have to deal with us women during those monthly "visitor" times. As tita graphically potrayed ... we're cranky for a reason! :evil:

    @rayboyjr - "Kelly Clarkson!" :lol:


  12. Rosette:

    * Fellas, do you groom your eyebrows? MY HUSBAND AND BOYS I TELL THEM PLUCK THAT YOU WANNA HAVE UNI BROW!

    * Ladies, without getting too graphic/personal, what's the most painful hair to pluck?WHY DON'T I DEMONSTRATE IT ON YOUR BACK TO SEE WHERE IT REALLY HURTS...! OH one time ONE STRAY HAIR IN INSIDE THE NOSE ..ouch! I tell my husband close your eyes they I yank..before I count to thre..ONE yank gone funny!

    * What do you think the toughest thing we men have to do is?
    Well I can decided to stay home to raise kids..I get to relax watch t.v. no boss to bug me ..BUT my husband has to work work like a mule! NOW THAT IS A PAIN that don't stop until age 55!

    During winter I let the hair grow on my legs ..you can practically braid it !


  13. tita leerz:

    @hobby: word!
    @ray: yeah...no can win. even if you find that one loophole where you think you might have a fighting chance we, like awesome lawyers we could be, will always find something else that can, in some small way, relate to what you're being lectured about.


  14. tita leerz:

    @Rosette: that's why they made long pants! I can do centipede on mine! We all should get together and try some corn rolls too!

    And, if (some) women REALLY gotta shave, (and they're too busy with kids and what not...but need to go out somewhere and ran out of jeans cuz they're all in the wash) then we just go up as high as our capris or shorts. Underarm is anoddah story! LOL! But I don't do it like the French. ;p


  15. Rosette:

    yes I have 7 days of feeling normal the rest is PMS....

    I had back labor I had c section the anesthetist I could still hear him say I HATE this JOB.....!I was about to tell him shut the he..ll up! can't you see I could die here and his last word I HATE this job stuck to my head..omg funny. My water broke all day my back labor and stupid husband just sit there..looking at me blank face....putting on a loud rock music in the room..if I could get up I smack him...next time he is in pain I will crank up stupid music for him. YES it was funny I had no time to argue with him or throw the radio out of the hospital window.

    I tolerated the pain the lady beside me in delivery room yelling moaning!!! I want to go over and tell her shut UP ..shut UP!!!


  16. Rosette:

    yes pajama pants will do....how about having used pads stuck to your backs pants while grocery shopping.

    .I was so busy changing I sat down omg stuck to me all day..try that guys!


  17. Coconut Willy:

    I got this one rouge eyebrow hair that grows about half an inch longer than the rest. If I could only transplant that bugga to my head....

    The nose hairs are so irritating. How come they start growing out as you get older. If I could only transplant that bugga to my head....

    Notice a trend here?


  18. frankie:

    The main reason why I am happy that I am not a woman occurs at the end of this sentence.


  19. Scott:

    My wife gave birth 3 weeks ago and had a C section. I saw the whole thing, the burning flesh, tearing muscles and watched the doctor stick her whole arm in her stomach, up to her shoulder, and bring to the Earth my son. Now, my wife is back to her pre birth weight, happy as a clam and is a great mother. I am so impressed.


  20. kako mochi:

    this is something i learned a while ago:

    you PLUCK chickens and TWEEZE eyebrows ;) heehee . . . anyway no matter where you tweeze, it's sore!

    i just started getting laser hair removal and the pain isn't so bad . . . feels like someone snapping a rubberband on you over and over and over again!! but, it's "numbed" w/ice, so . . . i can handle!! i'm strong, and I'M A WOMAN!!

    i think the laser intensity gets stronger w/each session, so we'll see how bad it gets!

    i tweezed a few BF's eyebrows before too . . . what panties! oh wait, maybe that's why they're XBFs now?! LOL!!


  21. Syxx:

    Plucking eyebrows doesn't really hurt after you try it the first time. After the initial shock and the watery eyes and irritated skin, it's all G. I think it stings less if you grab a whole bunch and rip 'em out real fast, kinda like removing a bandaid.

    When I lived at home, my younger brother used to have me pluck his eyebrows and facial hair for special events like proms and his graduation and senior portrait. His facial hair grows out sparse in places (kinda like how you said you get, Ed) but he didn't wanna shave it (man pride?), so he had me take out the stray hairs and give the rest a more clean look. Same thing with the eyebrows, he was kinda paranoid about having a unibrow, but too shame to really pluck 'em himself. I'm such a good sister.

    I totally agree with the nose hair thing though, that's damn sore! I tried to pull one out of my other half's nose, and he almost punched me. I thought he was just being a pu$$y, but then I tried it on myself. OW, BAD IDEA. I guess I should invest in one of those little grooming scissors for him, poor thing.

    The one thing I will never do is "squeeze out rice." Not only the coming out part, but you gotta carry the rice around for 9 months before it comes out, and then 18+ years after! No thanks, not my thing, not that much of a sucker for punishment.


  22. soogs:

    i used to think that women had it easy. that all changed after witnessing the trials and tribulations my wife went thru in birthing the kiddies. now i tell my friends, be thankful that you were born male.


  23. Rosette:

    yes try to beat octo mom vs duggar !!! yes she get it over with 8 kids all at once now DUGGAR how many bag of rice is that up to age 18 ...omg


  24. Rosette:

    well in some country females are treated worst..al least I am treated well as female in my house I SIT WATCH t.v not bad for female huh....SO PLUCK AWAY put ice first so it is numb..then nap time relax...omg...!


  25. Rosette:

    speaking of rice I had to pluck my grandma with two rice together yank..funny huh ! no tweezer use rice I say..omg


  26. kuya.d:

    @CW - bruddah, I am so with you, I could use more hairs on my bolo-head!


  27. uji:

    rosette:

    did you hear about the octomom breakfast special at Denny's???

    fawteen eggs, no sausage, and somebody else gets the bill...

    she is kind of cute, tho', in a weird, psycho kind of way..


  28. kate:

    Coconut Willy - are we married? you sound like my husband...

    Kako - next time you try to tweeze BF's eyebrows, rub some Oragel first, let it get little numb, then tweeze away. if that no work, he's a lost cause. I talked to my derm about laser hair removal and it sounded painful. She said it can also make the skin a little darker so now I'm afraid. I go to a person who does a really good wax job so I'll stay with her.


  29. Rosette:

    well I hope one of octo mom's kids will be rich someday and give back the money and PAY his octo mother back...for all the hell she has to put up with..her kids better be there when she get old !.


  30. Rosette:

    That is why the octo mom is pick to have 8 kids all at once..GET IT OVER WITH LADY.! she is smart no husband or she be babysitting him too!....


  31. kate:

    Anybody here go to the dentist and opt out of the novocaine? Am I the only one? When I was in high school and got a cavity, I would tell my dentist not to shoot me up. He would drill and fill my cavity without the novocaine. It didn't bother me too much. I hated the shot and the numb feeling so I just took the pain and once he was done, I felt fine.

    Some dentist insist on making their patients numb first. I guess my dentist knew I was ok with it.


  32. Rosette:

    yes yes plucking hair is is not painful as bABYSITTING A HUSBAND and two boys...!


  33. mcat:

    yes, women are strong! gosh reading some of the comments makes me scared about giving birth! tweezing is not so bad, no pain! what about getting laser hair removal? i heard that pain is pretty intense... not sure if I could handle that...

    looking forward to your aroundhawaii article tomorrow!


  34. MakiSushi:

    kate, I give you credit, opting out of novocaine - you tough! Me, wimp, shoot me up, keep'um coming. I join the other sensitive male on this blog who bow to the superior pain endurance of the feminine gender. I not as dumb as I look.


  35. kate:

    Maki - yeah but when I was in labor, I was screaming for the epidural. labor was worse than getting the teeth drilled. I recently had sclerotherapy done (if you don't know what that is, a drug is injected into the blood vessel to dissolve it. it's done to get rid of spider veins in the leg) and I would jump everytime the doctor poked me. I just don't like needles. Luckily my leg wasn't in too bad shape. I just had one little area worked on that was bugging me and thought I would try it.


  36. tita leerz:

    @mcat: no worries. personally, I'd much rather give birth than get my upper lip waxed. Plus, when you're facing "THE" moment, you're just like, "C'MON, WE GO!" "WOT? I NOT SKED?!"


  37. tita leerz:

    plus, God made woman this way because he knew we could handle!


  38. tita leerz:

    @Rosette: DUGGAR! They're crazy. But at least they can take care of their children without compromising their beliefs.


  39. MakiSushi:

    kate, you're killing me! Ouch and double ouch! I hate needles too. I like see your legs. :lol:

    Nowadays, dentists get good technique, no sore when they inject. Not like the old days. Horror stories galore.


  40. kate:

    Tita!
    You gotta find the right person to do the wax job. If they do it right, not too bad...I was told that if you try to do it yourself, it will hurt more. I tried that and it hurt bad and I got rashy too.

    You ever tried threading? That sound painful too. I'm too chicken to try.


  41. Coconut Willy:

    kate, i did it without novocaine a few times. My previous dentist didn't always numb me up first. Plus I really hate those shots, and the feeling after. Yuk!
    Nowadays tho the shot is not as bad. Just that numb feeling and when you start getting the feeling back. Ugh!


  42. kate:

    Maki - sorry but I don't want you to have high expectations over my legs. They're not what they used to be. They've been neglected so I'm trying to get them back to their former glory!

    When I was in my late 20's, early 30's, I used to sometimes wear really short skirts/dresses to the office. There were these guys who would always come to "visit" a coworker. I never knew there were so many guys in our little building. Well, later I found out my coworker would call these guys up and tell them I was wearing a short skirt and those were the days they would all hang out in our office. I never knew what was happening until later. So embarassing.....


  43. Rosette:

    # tita leerz: YES I THINK the DUGGAR got help from Discovery NETWORK.....meaning t.v watchers like me put food on the table!


  44. Rosette:

    @ tita leerz: PLUS GOD MADE WOMAN this way because we argued too much to GOD..we bet GOD we are tougher than ADAM and sure enough we got it!!


  45. Rosette:

    just try Women's Tolerance Level when PMS strike.....


  46. kuya.d:

    @tita - see, das why YOU tita, not softie (ahem).

    @kate - you not one softie either, I kinda like the numb feeling . . . and how it causes you to drool.


  47. MakiSushi:

    wow kate, neat story; I wish I knew you then! No let your husband read this.


  48. Rosette:

    @ KATE the co worker selling tickets at the door....


  49. snow:

    ed, all i can say is, for the sake of your wife, i hope you're not a pain wuss or sickness wuss like my husband and son! lol... for goodness sakes, when they are in pain or sick, they want to be taken care of! i'm like "suck it up! that's nothing!" i think if men had to endure the pains women endure... they'd be in sad shape! and then they'd be bragging to their friends afterwards!! "eh, mine wuz moa soa den yo's!" heh heh... ;)


  50. World Wide Ed:

    * hemajang:

    God did not make woman from his (man's) head so that she could be above him. God did not make woman from his feet so that she could be below him. But He made her from his rib so that she could walk beside him.

    If you're with the right person, the one you're meant to be with....this isn't a problem. :)
