...girls are rewarded for abiding by the rules, while boys' more rebellious ways are punished.

*GASP!*

Couldn't agree with JTWood more here. Just as in the adult system, if you break the rules you get punished. Just because murder is against the law, doesn't mean that most men feel the urge to go out and kill someone to rebel. This is such a ridiculous statement. Yeah, there are differences between girls and boys and how they learn, but there are plenty of opportunities for boys to succeed. I never had the problem of being completely outnumbered in any of my honors or AP classes in HS. (Not that I would be complaining anyway).

Back in your day did you walk 15 miles both ways each day in the snow just to get to school? Heh, just kidding... but reading that really made me think of that.

My school wasn't overly unfair when it came to girls/boys. My school just favored the basketball teams and good lord help you if you dressed or acted different (went to high school in a country town).

And the word "boned" used unnecessarily in thread titles.

I guess life is designed to the disadvantage of males, then. Suck it up, kid. Stop whining. Part of going to school is learning to function in society.


The car insurance thing pisses me off....Girls are terrible terrible drivers compared to boys....However, boys are more likely to drag race or go insane and drive their car off a cliff...But I'm pretty sure girls are more apt to hit bumpers and scrath peoples doors etc.

I believe girls have more accidents per million miles, but they just drive less than boys so they have less of a chance for an accident.

Yeah, but you can't generalize like that. The worst drivers I've ever known in my life, the ones that really make me fear for my safety, have all been males.

I know a guy who won't go anywhere without a "road beer". Never met a woman like that.

Guys are worse drivers because of carelessness and stupidity.

Women are worse drivers because of incompetence.
