Have you ever read Self Made Man by Norah Vincent? If so, what did you think about it?

If you haven't, it's about a woman who spends a year disguised as a man, and offers her insights on gender relations. I was intrigued by it because I get a huge kick out of crossdressing every now and then and at least tricking a few people into thinking I'm a guy (at least until they talk to me). The book opened my eyes to lots of male (and female) behavior, and really made me appreciate being female, at least in some aspects. Which leads to my next question:

What are some things you like about being your gender? What are some things you dislike? I'm speaking more on social terms than physical; we all know the physical attributes of men and women.
