Which statistics show this fact?
The ones you chuckle at afterward, as if to understand that it's a joke.

God, if there is one, must be very biased in favor of men. They don't have to give birth. They don't have to get moody every month. Now they don't have to bury their spouse.

I always thought men died earlier because they have to put up with women. Statistics show that every question like "Honey, does this dress make me look fat", or "What are you thinking?", or "Is she prettier than me" takes an average of 7.3 days off the life of the average male. It all adds up.
Which statistics show this fact?
Silly me - I forgot to end my post with a :P .

If the "putting up with women" argument is really the reason why men live shorter lives does that mean that gay men would live as long as women? And that lesbians would have the life expectancy of a straight man?
