Default Men or Women, Girls or Boys

Which gender is more difficult? More menacing? More manipulative? More understanding? More driven? More limiting? More likely to dismiss a member of the group? More open? More secretive? More agenda driven? More results driven? More of less? Less of more?

I'll share the reasons for the ambiguity later.... I'm a male so I suppose you can say males are less likely to be clear about an inquiry...

Gender traits... let's hear them.

You can't judge a person by their gender.

Wow

I can see where this is going to quickly lead to a gender identity crisis homophobe thread real quick because certain rights groups were'nt included as part of the O.P. subject line.

Honestly,

Men and women are just as dishonest as one another, they are just as manipulative, and most of the other things you mentioned.

We have some physical differences, but we are all human. I think women are better at relationships than men are. So after a given time, they know how to play their man like a fiddle. Thats why couples that have been together for so long, seem to always have the woman in charge. Just an observation. Generally, the men who think they are in charge, are just led to believe that by their wives.

Of course, I think the whole divorce when 40 thing is throwing some women completely off though.

don't worry, you men are in charge

I'M THE BOSS (from Burl Ives)

Before a man marries, one thing he should get straight:
Who is the captain who is the first mate,
Who mops standing up or who scrubs on his knees,
A man's entitled to decisions like these. CHORUS: I'm the boss. (There's no doubt of it)
I'm the boss. (And he's proud of it)
I make the decisions and mine is the final one.
Don't tell me how the dishes should be done. CHORUS
My woman and I we live in tranquillity.
Don't ask how to spell it; I'm not nobility.
I say men are smarter and my woman agrees.
What I cook for supper should be up to me. CHORUS
Take my advice, friend: stay in the driver's seat.
You give her an inch and you're doomed to defeat.
Let her know you're the boss. Man can't live on his knees.
Fold the baby's diapers any way that you please. CHORUS

Neither gender. A lot of people suck. Sucking does not recognize boundaries. Now, if someone believes in their heart of hearts, that one gender is more or less, then one needs only back track to the last time that person got burned.
