This little passage got me thinking:
For every girl there is a boy
For every girl who is tired of acting weak when she is strong, there is a boy tired of appearing strong when he feel vulnerable.
For every boy who is burdened with the constant expectation of knowing everything, there is a girl tired of people not trusting her intelligence.
For every girl who is tired of being called over-sensitive, there is a boy who fears to be gentle, to weep.
For every boy for whom competition is the only way to prove his masculinity, there is a girl who is called unfeminine when she competes.
For every girl who throws out her E-Z-Bake oven, there is a boy who wishes to find one.
For every boy struggling not to let advertising dictate his desires, there is a girl facing the ad industry’s attacks on her self esteem.
For every girl who takes a step toward her liberation, there is a boy who find the way to freedom a little easier.
Well if you go into statistics… For every girl, there is actually 1.03 boys between ages 15 and 64. All men tend to die off earlier reducing the ratio to a further 0.75 after ages 65 and above causing older women to look sadder than they really should.
In Singapore, women are a little luckier with each women having 1.07 men between ages 15 and 64 (technically) to themselves. If you should ever support polygamy, perhaps you can think about the possibility of a woman having multiple husbands.
