An article on social media recently titled “The truth is boys and girls are alike, but girls can be different” has been making the rounds, and has inspired a number of responses.
The article says: “The best way to learn is by doing, and learning by doing is a lot of fun.
This means you can’t just say ‘I want to be like girls’.
We need to find out what’s true about girls, and then make our own decisions about how we feel about them.”
But what do we actually mean by “boys and girls”?
And does it matter if girls or boys are saying the same things?
Let’s take a look at some of the examples.
The most common response from people reading the article is that it’s a “boys will be boys” type of article, as if it’s saying that all men are like this, and that boys and boys are just “boys” and therefore should be allowed to say things that girls can’t.
It’s a popular response that ignores the fact that there are lots of different types of men, from straight men to gay men, men who are bisexual, straight women, men in relationships, straight men who aren’t, straight people who are gay, straight and bisexual people, and so on.
This is not the same as saying that women are “all like this”, as this is also not the case.
There are a lot more people who can be men than women, and these differences can often be explained away by other factors like upbringing, gender role, and cultural norms.
The same can be said for people who identify as straight.
And, in fact, this article is quite different in tone from a lot that I’ve seen elsewhere, such as one that focuses on “gender norms”, or that argues that all gender roles are the same, or that women have to conform to certain norms.
The article also ignores a lot other common social media experiences of boys and “boys”, including the fact boys are “boys in a boy world”, or boys play sports, and boys have lots of friends, or boys don’t like girls, or kids play video games with friends, and lots more.
In fact, these aren’t the only common social context in which boys and kids are treated differently.
In some cases, boys are even more likely than girls to be victims of sexual violence.
For example, the Everyday Sexism Project at the University of Michigan found that more than a third of male victims of intimate partner violence reported experiencing physical or sexual violence in childhood.
And when people look at this data, it’s not just that boys are being raped, but that it has a very specific and negative effect on their lives.
According to a report by the UN Children’s Fund, boys in particular are more likely to be affected by poverty and more likely for their families to be undervalued in their job, and are less likely to have access to education.
In other words, boys and children are actually disadvantaged when it comes to access to health care and schooling.
And this is just from the US.
In the UK, the study by the Child Poverty Action Group found that one in five boys were living in households where there was no access to clean water or sanitation, and one in three were living on less than £10 a day.
And yet this is not something that can be easily blamed on boys.
There are also other common ways in which men and boys differ from one another, which can also lead to discrimination.
For example, it has been shown that men tend to be more likely in the workforce and in positions of authority, and also to be less likely than women to use the internet and social media.
It also has been suggested that boys tend to have higher rates of substance abuse and mental health problems, and to experience more depression.
These are not just cultural differences, but also societal ones.
For instance, boys often spend more time with their fathers and are often more likely, for example, to stay at home with their younger siblings.
These sorts of experiences have also been linked to a higher risk of sexual assault.
A recent study by University College London (UCL) found that boys in Britain are four times more likely as girls to experience a sexual assault than boys in the US or the UK.
And a 2014 study found that a woman is twice as likely as a man to experience physical violence.
A number of other studies have also shown that boys’ behaviour is often different than that of girls, which has led to the idea that boys need to be taught better skills to cope with social and gender norms.
But it’s important to realise that while some of these differences are more pronounced in boys than girls, other differences between boys and the rest of society are more subtle.
And it’s also important to recognise that this does not mean that men can’t be different from girls, nor that
