  • Persuasive Essay: 'Boys Will Be Boys'

    When I was growing up I would make a lot of mistakes and have a lot of accidents. The first thing that my mom or dad would say was “Boys will be boys” and I realize that I have used that as an excuse to do things for a really long time.

I had a sister and she would follow me around and do the same things as me but I wouldn’t get in trouble and she would. I would get away with it just because I was a guy.

But anyway she got over and I didn’t care to speak up because I was getting treated better and nothing was going to change just because I…

  • Elizabeth Farrelly's No Boys Allowed?

    No Boys Allowed In a scientific point of view nature causes gender differences in interests/behaviors. But in reality nurturing holds more credibility on gender differences. “Gender is a social construct” means gender is created through society and culture, and this is prescribed as appropriate behavior for a person based on their gender. The view above isn’t uncommon within teacher’s training in college and public schools. This view has a great potential to hurt boys because teachers aren’t…
