    When I was a kid, I felt boys had it easier. They didn’t ever have to wear dresses, for one thing. They could run and play and climb on the way home from church and school. They didn’t have to have anything done to their hair other than a few swipes with a comb. They didn’t have to sit quietly at Grandma’s. Parents would let them go farther away from the safety of home at a younger age, because they seemed less vulnerable. When I was a kid, they only made long johns and thick mittens/gloves and face-mask hats for boys, so girls had to freeze or stay indoors. Girls also got more housework and were more likely to be punished if their homework wasn’t done or their grades were bad. Boys got to go more often on their dads’ outdoorsy outings, while moms and daughters stayed home.

    As an adult, I think it’s a toss-up. Women have more to do, but they are naturally better at getting it all done. Women get happier as they get older, so at some point, they start being better off than men. They have more choices as adults – more colors are OK at work, more career choices are respected, they can do whatever they want with their hair. Their health tends to be better and they are better at keeping up social relationships, which lend to both health and happiness. I have felt lucky to be a woman for some time now.

    When I was younger, I was always glad to be a girl. As I grew up, I was still glad. I feel men have it harder just because it’s expected of them to go out and support their families. I know now a lot of women do this now too but back when I was younger, men usually did it and I found myself feeling lucky to be a girl.

    It’s a kiddies question so I can’t answer… but I think being a girl is way better except when you are stranded in the middle of nowhere…

    This is an easy one…

    Up until the age of about thirteen girls have it easier

    The teenage years boys definately have it easier.
