Is growing up tougher for boys than girls?
In general, it's not any worse or any easier than the obstacles
females have to face. Treatment of genders tends to depend on the
society and cultural expectations the children have to grow up
with. Very conservative cultures tend to have rigid roles for the
genders, even when individuals do not want to live their life in
such a manner. In countries where violence and civil wars occur,
both genders are victims to abuse, rape and murder. In the U.S.,
bullying and hazing are not gender specific.
