Is this generally the case? Because i notice a lot guys don't really mind having braces on compared to most girls.

I'm 26 with metals and I'm having a hard time with them.

In my opinion, I just think that women are just more likely to complain. :) Besides, women (generally) are more vocal about their emotions anyway. As such, I highly doubt one sex experiences more pain than the other.

I think men are more accepting of women in braces than the other way around.

But, as for just having them in general, I would think men handle it better. Its subjective either way but I think braces are hard to handle for either sex.

girls got an advantage,
its not unusual they work on their appearance (make up for example), for men, is often limited to looks clean. So my point is that a man working on his appearance will have harder time than a girl, at least from a social point of view.
