Girls vs Boys
Why the Issue?
Have you ever wondered why many people say that girls are better than boys, or that boys are better than girls? One of the main reasons is that there is a very big difference between boys and girls, therefore people think that one is better and the other is worse.
     Another reason is, can I say it? Like The Dress, people see what they want to see, girls often want to see themselves as better, and so they do. The same usually goes for boys. There is also the third reason, which is Mankind likes competition, they like fighting, arguing and stating their own opinion and looking "right".

Background
There has always been an obvious difference between boys and girls, and not just physically but emotionally. Boys were usually built to be stronger and girls were built to take care of the family and home. Then people decided that girls weren't as important and that they shouldn't learn, be seen in public, read, write and talk about their opinions.
     But this changed, which isn't bad. Girls got more privileges but they took it a little too far, so far that today they seem to think they're better than boys, which isn't true. See, we were wrong before, so they changed, now we're all just wrong in a different way!

Girls vs Boys
So girls used to be treated wrong, now they're treated better, but too good almost. Face it, we've all seen those jokes. The guy doesn't something dumb, the girl does something genius, why? Well, maybe society feels bad for the way girls used to be treated so they try to make up for it by making guys look bad.
     Girls are considered "smarter" even though they just think differently. Guys want to fix things and are stronger, girls want to talk about it. So people think girls are smarter even though they just talk more than guys. It's true, girls are often better at speaking than guys.
     Often people will notice that there were no "great women" in history, but have you considered why? Mainly it's because girls weren't allowed to be great. They weren't allowed to learn, say their opinions, etc. So even if they did something great, nobody would care, they would ignore her or try to make her stop being great.
     Computers. Gaming used to be a "guy thing." Fortunately, now there are tons of girls on Minecraft and many other games. It's not odd to find a girl on an electronic anymore, which is definitely a plus or I wouldn't be writing this right now.

Differences
Most girls are natural caretakers, good with other people and better at multitasking. Taking care of children is something most girls love, and it's definitely not a bad thing. There's nothing wrong with being most passive or quiet. Of course, some girls love sports, working, building, etc. But it's true that the majority of girls prefer shopping, babies, reading, etc.
     Most boys are strong, natural defenders and very focused. None of these things are bad. And there are guys who are quiet, bakers, multitaskers and good with small children. That's ok too.
     We're all different.

Conclusion
Fair doesn't mean equal. And Equal doesn't mean Identical. Girls and Boys are Equal, but not Identical. We're different, but neither of us is better.

P.S. Before you comment to complain about the title or whatever, please make sure you've actually read my blog, I never said once that boys/girls are better, the whole time I said the opposite, please keep that in mind, Thank You!

/slinks into comments to give my own thoughts on this topic because i'm trash and can't internalize it

girls and boys aren't equal yet in my opinion.

it's still bad enough to the point that saying 'no' may mean you wind up dead, or that you start to get scared when you walk alone in the streets, praying a man doesn't catcall. and it's still not equal because on a global scale, women are still objectified and treated harshly, not just in america (where you might even experience harassment based on your gender).

and then we discuss standards, and even those aren't equal. are both men and women given unrealistic expectations by the media? yes. but for men it's less common than with women.

it's kind of sad that to be viewed as acceptable in this country you must be cis, heterosexual and heteroromantic, look attractive, and be willing to be treated like an object or an animal instead of an actual, decent human being.

i'm not agreeing with your points but i'm not disagreeing either; you point out some good things and make a valid argument as to why males and females are equal and different but i like to look on a bigger scale.

I'm not saying that both genders are treated eaqually, I'm saying that they should be treated equally because neither is really better.

Sorry, I didn't quite understand everything you said, are you saying that one gender is actually better than the other?

1. understandable, must've misread at some point, but my comment is about why men and women not treated equally.

2. no i am not, i'm saying that it's sad that a large portion of this country doesn't see it that way. i think we're equal but not quite, because there's still some points that are not fair. women aren't treated fairly, sometimes men aren't treated fairly - so, no, not equal yet. going back to the fact that i misread and commented on treatment, i'll change course and say that i agree with your statements that, in skills, plenty of men and women are equal.

A man does not judge his own gender. No gender is better in anyway or in any aspect. I understand where you are coming from, and I respect your opinion but at the end, "better" doesn't exist. Everything is equal and balanced, except our perspectives.

Well, when I think about the people around me I find that girls are often more artistic, not always but often.

And again, there is such a thing as better, some things are better for us than other things.

Also, if you think about it, this world isn't very balanced either

Those are mostly my opinions though, I don't mean to start an argument

I disagree. A good example would be Osama Bin Laden's death. A lot of people were happy that he was dead, in fact the man did terrifying things. But, there might be relatives of him which were very sad. When somebody kills someone on the street it is considered crime. Yet if somebody kills a terrorist or criminal it is usually considered good. Do you see where I'm going? You might think it's better if someone who did terrible things would be dead but other people might think differently. 

Let me tell you once again.... "better" only exists in your own perspective or that of others. But in reality, everything tends to be equal. People often confuse perspective with reality and somehow this might even turn into ignorance.

You just disproved your own point about this world being balanced, people killing others and being happy about it. That's not balance . . .

Like I said, in reality, everything tends to be equal; we all share different perspectives which makes it balanced and equal. I understand this sounds confusing to you but as long as you say both genders are equal I will bear no grudge against you; people saying that girls are better than boys or boys are better than girls seriously piss me off. It makes me want to locate them with my batcomputer...

I personally believe a thing like "better" doesn't exist. I believe that at the end, everything is meant to be balanced. People reffer to "better" when something in their perspective is of more value, but I personally believe there is no better gender.

In other words, both male and female (boys and girls) are equally cool in particular ways.

With that said, I do however believe in evil. Hatred itself is evil, as do we all carry hatred in our minds yet our souls are pure in their own ways.

There is no better gender but some things are obviously better, such as right and wrong, it is better to do what is right than to do what is wrong. In that case there is a "better."

Lets stop comparing ourselves!

Boy: Faster, Stronger Awesome!
Girl: Smarter, Flexible Also awesome!

Even if males are genetically superior, we wouldn't be man-kind without females. And note that there is hardly any mental difference between genders rather then the thought of how females think when they hear men are better and they are nothing. Not true at all, but females are also doing the bad stuff to every male for ONE mistake that an ignorant boy said about the average of girls. Stuff like TV shows such as 'Life with Boys'. Lets make a change.

Fun fact: boys are more likely to be smarter than average, but they're also more likely to be more stupid than average. Girls tend to be near the middle, and I guess it averages out.

First note, I'm a boy. Both sexes are equal, the bible says so, they're meant to coexist.
Though I do want to say girls are better.

In all honesty I don't remember, but it's my believe that god wished both genders to be equal, and equally important.

Lets make this topic even more debatable. How would transgenders fit into this topic? Good luck with that.

Good blog though. Diamond because I probably just started something. :P

Let's not forget all the other "x-gender" titles and lables.
I assume there are too many to name, but I could always consult the Tumblr Codex for that.

Just wanted to pop in an say there are tons of great women in history and that saying there aren't any isn't accurate at all. Marie Curie, Joan of Arc, Rosa Parks, Helen Keller, Sacagawea... Also, I'd be interested in seeing your sources to back up yor generalizations regarding how the majority of each gender supposedly acts.

Edit: To add on here, while the ending sentiment of "neither gender is better" is nice, a lot of what leads up to it is personal opinion stated as fact with no sources. I think this article may have been more powerful with some actual research put in. I realize that the point was probably "here's my opinion" but I feel that this subject deserved a little more attention.

This. And might I add my all time baes LYUDMILA PAVLICHENKO and ALEKSANDRA SAMUSENKO, two highly ranked members of the Soviet Union during WWII, Lyudmila being a sniper (THE most deadliest female sniper, to boot) and Aleksandra being a tankman. While not as influential as the ones you listed, I tend to find them 'empowering' when it comes to female roles I suppose.

Agreed. In my opinion, most of the listed differences really only exist because that's what society expects of them.

That's not to say there's no biological differences, though. I think if someone is writing about differences, they should write about that: real, tangible differences rather than societal expectations and stereotypes.
