John Marsden Writing Topic #98
What are the differences between males and females?**
-Males have “outdoor plumbing” whereas females have “indoor plumbing.”
-Females give birth, males don’t.
-Males generally get paid a higher salary than females (unfortunately).
-Females have breasts and wider hips to accommodate for pregnancy and childbirth.
-Females are more sensitive or at least more open about their sensitivity than males.
-Females have been taught by society to express their feelings whereas men have been taught to bottle them up.
-Females are generally victim blamed when they are assaulted, the men who attack them are spared societal punishment and outrage.
