Gender Pros & Cons

Advantages of being male:-

Advantages of being female:-
  • ...most experts agree that women have the advantage in very many ways when it comes to brains. they are better protected against damage and less prone to problems such as autism, dyslexia, language difficulty, colour blindness, schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Tourette's syndrome and virtually every brain disorder, both those which are there at birth and those which develop later in life. In later life, men lose brain cells faster and are more likely to develop memory problems. (Nicola Morgan in her book Blame My Brain, p.120) 
  • ...females tend to use both sides of the brain while using language... Using both halves of the brain may explain why women tend to recover speech better after brain injury and find language easier in general.(Nicola Morgan in her book Blame My Brain, p.120) 
Disadvantages of being female:-
  • Violence Pandemic. Over one-in-three women worldwide experience physical or sexual violence, often from their intimate partner (WHO cited by CNN, posted 20 June 2013, accessed 11 July 2014; also see The Guardian). This is likely to be an underestimate. One in three women will be raped, beaten, sexually coerced, trafficked or otherwise abused in her lifetime (UNIFEM [United Nations Women's Development Fund], 2003, cited here, accessed 11 July 2014).
