goo Ranking recently published the results of a pair of ranking surveys into when girls wish they could be reborn as boys, and when boys wish they could be rebord as girls.


Over the 7th and 8th of December 2012 1,059 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 61.4% of the sample were female, 10.8% in their teens, 14.4% in their twenties, 24.9% in their thirties, 28.8% in their forties, 11.5% in their fifties, and 9.6% aged sixty or older. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.

Here’s a guy enjoying number 2, both 6s, and perhaps even the first 9.

I’m a guy & I don’t see why eating cake is a problem, it must be cultural differences but still I’d eat cake in Japan in a café, if I want cake I’ll get cake I don’t care what others think. Want bear a child really? Even I know that’s a bad idea (one of the most painful experiences), even if I was a girl I wouldn’t (although I suppose being a girl there’s different hormones so I don’t know what I’d be thinking really).

I think your scoring 4 “When I feel salary, promotion, etc favours men” 5 “When child-rearing, housework becomes a pain” is around the wrong way cause 4 has less points than 5
