The Number One Reason Boys are Better Than Girls

Written by mom - 23 Comments

As a followup to my list of five reasons that boys are better than girls, I’d like to point out a comment from a reader named Jim Durbin, who attributed the following to his father-in-law:

“With a boy, you just have to worry about one [boy]. With a girl, you have to worry about all of them.”

(The brackets denote editing by Jim to ensure family friendliness – use your imagination.)

  1. I’m sorry but I had no where else to say this. I’m sick of this boys are so much better than girls. All my life I’ve had to compete with my brother for my dad’s attention and guess who won it. Definitely not me because I was the annoying, blonde, little imp who spent too much time playing with dolls. And what hurt me even more is when I became a little older and I dropped the whole pink princess phase and became more interested in sports, base-ball in particular. He still didn’t like me, my brother was still untouchably high on the pedestle. I hate to sound over-dramatic but why is being a girl so bad? I’m not catty, I’m not a drama queen, I condemn the color pink, and I still watch base-ball whenever I can. You make the female gender out to be some kind of disease. Thanks for making the wound just that much deeper. I’ll make sure to let my brother know just how much better he is =(

  2. Hey Nina, don’t forget that the four boys came from someone who was once a little girl herself!

  4. I am glad that I was born a boy. I am just as glad that my wife wasn’t. Heheh.

    That being said, I hope that we have one of each, but we’ll be just as happy with whatever gender we get.

  5. I think that boys are easier for dads to relate to because they “is one”. That means there’s the same thought processes and they understand how they think.

    I don’t think that your dad loves you any less, Nina, it’s just that he relates better with his boy. (If this is the case at all– you should ask him about it.)

  7. Eh, in my view all these thought (of this website) is just for laughs….

    The comparison is annoying. Why a need for this? I don’t think anybody is better than anyother person. We all are same.

  10. Hey, ‘A Mom’, want to know why insects and insect species keep dying at such a stupidly high rate? Not because of human intervention (although that does kill an awful lot of them), but because they have too few males! They simply do not vary enough in their genetic make up and so when a relatively simple illness comes along, such as a new strain of the common cold that they have not evolved to be immune to, they are all genetically identical and so their entire species can be wiped out in days! This is known to happen frequently in species such as ants and bees, where entire nests of the insects are genetically identical and so if one is killed by the disease they will all die.

    I am relieved we humans have managed to evolve to be strong and immune to most illnesses due to our brilliant evolution through genetic variation – for which to happen you need a male female ration of 1:1.

  11. I am Himani of class VII and I study in St.Xavier’s High School , Rampura Phul. I whole – heartedly support the motion that ‘Girls are superior to boys’ as they show better results in board examination and everywhere else. They perform the greatest role of mother. Let’s take the example of our own mother. Is she not caring us properly and not giving us proper meals? According to me, she is the best. Are all girls not having good intelligency and good ability of tolerance? If we think it deeply , I think the answer is yes.
    Now the question arises why are girls like Kiran Bedi, Medha Patkars, Sunita Williams, Kalpana Chawla, etc. not allowed to be born and bloom? Why are women who are the hub of family life and are name and fame of family not given equal rights as men? Are they not human beings?
    So,let’s join our hands together and let these beautiful creatures be born and bloom.

    Thank you!

  17. I have news for you ladies, without males the population also cannot reproduce!!!. Also, without males sport would be terrible. I mean come on who wants to watch the WNBA?? The world would be a mess. Most of the people who are priminister/presidents are males. Females have the tendency to believe that the world would be more peaceful if females were in charge. I don’t think so.. Women are by far more petty, b!tchy and stressed. Also, if one country was run by females they would be invaded in seconds. Could you imagine a female army? they’d be a bunch of pansies. Women think they are as tough as males. Clearly not. Just to cap it off, males earn more per year in salaries than females. The majority of CEO’S, managing directors and regional managers are males

  18.

Btw I’m eleven so don’t give me rude crap.

  19. Oh and by the way “Michael” do you know why there are more male politicians? Because women don’t give a crap about pointless things like politics.
