Today, at the beginning of class, I gave my students this prompt with the explicit instructions to be detailed and legitimate in their reasoning:
Who has it easier: boys or girls?
In my honors class, one of the smartest girls, SB, who is sarcastic and irreverent and reminds me of me if I had been a girl, answered in a way I couldn't have foreseen.
I think it's almost equal as to who has it easier, but I'm going to say that girls have it harder. First, we have to endure "shark week" once a month and it's not pretty. Second, we have to give birth, which is like "shark week" on steroids. So I think we win.
Well said. No argument here.
