Its rough all around for anyone getting within range of this melee blender.
Barbarians are WAY worse off. At least Monks have a ton of heals and CC. Barbs have... armor. Yay. Get to be three-shotted instead of two-shotted. Woo.
Witch Doctors I have no idea about. I'm planning on rolling one after I get to Inferno with my current Monk.

Depends really. The biggest issue is the resource supply. Both we and Barbs need to be in combat to keep it up - the difference being that Barbs slowly goes down over time. And taking damage to replenish it is suicide unless you know the damage you'll take won't one or two-shot you. At least monks' supply doesn't fall, so you can kite and get a few hits in to replenish it slowly.

my demon hunter and wizard friends do more dps while wearing full magic find gear except weapon / offhand, than i can do with my best gear on. in my personal opinion, i firmly believe that the class designers are biased to ranged classes
I will have to disagree with you Logikalfury, the game design is not meant for you as monk to tank especially not while standing in desecration -_-, let the Barb in party tank with his high armor and resist . Granted he can't heal himself nor will he be able to tank if he gets lynched by 3-4+ mobs, but that's where you come in as monk to heal and crowd control. Instead of complaining about unable to tank try changing your play style a bit, IMO monks are off-tanks with awesome CC/healing/buffer not the main tank. Protect your party members who are capable of dps better than you.
The dh in party is my brother so I frequently watch how he plays and I can tell you that while they do have insane dps they are also squishy, one hit would mean KO for them. Btw why the hell should you be able to do more dps than wiz and dh? If you could then all wiz and dh would reroll to monk because monks can heal, take hits, and have CC. <_<
as far as those classes being squishy... act4 izual and his summoned adds pretty much one shot my monk as well. i have roughly in my current dps gear about 20-30% the dps of my friends demon hunter. while both classes essentially get one shotted.
