Boys vs Girls (Part 2)

Who is “More” Better?

picture by Google

We as adults can sure see some of the vast differences in our boys and girls, but wait till you hear what actual boys and girls see as their differences that they feel make them “more” better…

I always knew that boys and girls were different, but was dumbfounded to read Bringing up Boys by Dr. James Dobson and learn about the  in-depth physical phenomena that occurs only in boys–wont be getting into that today. In this book too, there is a very brave and outspoken nine-year old girl who aims to settle the score between boys and girls and sent in to Dr. Dobson (Focus on the Family President at the time) a list of why girls are better than boys. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

GIRLS ARE MORE BETTER THAN BOYS (written in her own wording and typos)

  1. girls chew gum with their mouths closed
  2. girls have better hand writing
  3. girls sing better
  4. girls are more talented
  5. girls can do their hair better
  6. girls cover their mouths when they sneeze
  7. girls don’t pick their nose
  8. girls go to the bathroom politely (What is that about?)
  9. girls learn faster
  10. girls are more kinder to animals
  11. girls don’t smell as bad (I like that she added “as much”)
  12. girls are more smarter
  13. girls get more things what they want
  14. girls don’t let stinkers as much
  15. girls are more quieter (She hasn’t met me)
  16. girls don’t get as durty
  17. girls are cleaner
  18. girls are more attractive
  19. girls don’t each as much
  20. girls walk more politely
  21. girls aren’t as strict
  22. girls sit more politely
  23. girls are more creative
  24. girls look better than boys
  25. girls comb their hair better
  26. girls shave more
  27. girls put on deoderant on more often
  28. girls don’t have as much bodyordor
  29. girls don’t want their hair messed up
  30. girls like to get more tan
  31. girls have more manners

It’s rebuttal time…

After hearing what this young girl had written and gotten published in Focus on the Family’s monthly newsletter, there was a backlash from people who thought this was unfair that only one side (girls) was allowed to write such things. To even the score, Dr. Dobson welcomed boys to submit their opinion of girls and this was a summary of what he accumulated.

      Oh no don’t tell me that I was hoping for my next one to be a girl and my husband is already freaked out about having a girl since he is a high school teacher and works with them. I guess do mature faster than boys?

    As a mother of a two-year-old, reading number 29 on the boys list made me laugh. Boys don’t wine??? That must happen later in life. My little man was great about not whining until his baby brother was born. Then, he saw that crying resulted in affection … so, now he ‘fake’ cries and whines to get his way (Not that I give in, but he still does it.)

    Great Post!

      Thank you so much for stopping by Amy. You know I have a soon to be 3 year old and I do hear what you are saying because he too can get a little “babyish” when he notices the baby getting more attention anything from whinning to “hey look at me!”. Boys are fun aren’t they? And good for you “not giving in” it’s tough for me sometimes. Keep it up mommy!
