Women Are Not Way Different Than Men

by Rachel
(Turlock California)

One cannot always relate every individual variable to gender. In doing so we catagorize byt sex which will not help us understand the ADHD condition. We have to realize how girls in classrooms have been expected to sit still and be little ladies. When a girl becomes disruptive she pays a greater price in being judged for her actions.


My cousin is a grade school teacher and she says girls and boys have a mixed set of behavior such as girls finding it hard to sit still and boys staring into space. It goes both ways. We need to take gender of a person out and view them all as individuals. Pop psychology keeps these myths going but they must end if society wants to help anyone. It's annoying how gender is related to everything these days.
