I am a feminist so i believe women deserve everything that men do and men deserve everything that women do so if a guy can get in trouble so can a girl. Girls are scientifically smarter than boys. Our brains mature much quicker than male brains. And also, we have a better sense of facial recognition and also a better sense of responsibility. This to me means that girls have more mental capabilities than boys do. This means that we are more intelligent. And intelligent does not mean smart. Smart people are really good at math and science and those kinds of things that lawyers, doctors and teachers need to be fitted for their careers. Intelligent people are good at a multitude of things including art(any form) and games. Intelligent people tend to be more creative than smart people. So, UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE!!! I am a feminist too. Yes, we deserve to be treated equally. But, on what basis do you make the argument that girls have better sense of responsibility? And what facts do you have to show that women have more mental capabilities than boys?
