For a very long time girls have been the ones who raised US. My mother was a very nice girl. Like many girls she had her problems; as do boys. But BOYS have had advantages. They are bigger, stronger, notice I did not say smarter.
Girls are what makes the world go round, and thank goodness. For all their good qualities boys like to settle things with their fists or guns. Some have called this “testosterone poisoning” because it makes boys like to fight. They triumph in the infirm glory of the positive hour.
Most wars have been fought by boys. Girls prefer more subtle methods, like poison from a ring or the Lysistrata cure. Girls are more graceful when dropping poison into your wine or persuading one to fix the sink. Girls are less into fighting minor battles. They have a longer view – tied into the strategic survival of their children. Sometimes they get it wrong, but they are not into cleaving your skull in two except on rare occasions.
My mother, as I have said was a girl. When she became my mother, and with all the acumen of an eight-year old, I had her fight battles with oppressive teachers from whom I had no other defense. She was as aggressive as a she wolf even if she may have guessed that I was wrong.
Girls are loyal, girls can make stone soup, girls have power. And wisdom. Girls rock. Now watch the video.
