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.
