I Noticed Something

I was at the BAM looking over manga and I noticed that there was a lot more shoujo (girl's) manga than any other genre.  It didn't really surprise me because girls have always seemed to have bought more manga that boys, but then I asked myself how do teenage girls get so much more money than boys of the same age?

First I said that boys have a different mindset about how to spend their money, but when I thought about how girls are give so much money to buy clothes, shoes, and accessories for the sake of fashion, I started to feel bitter, because boys of the same age in the same family are rarely given anything.  Obviously, I'm talking about my own life experiences, but I've been around other families who display the same behavior even ones who were met by chance.

I guess, I'm just asking for some thoughts on the matter for whoever feels like commenting.

X3 this might sorta explain the attitude I get from most females in my area. The whole "perfection or fuck off" thing.

Most people give off that vibe whether they realize it or not, however, how exactly does that relate to the topic?

As you mentioned, teen females tend to be given more money for fashion, so perhaps since they don't have trouble striving for perfection in themselves, they may expect the same from others?

Well, they certainly make it a priority.  However, I was really lamenting the unfair treatment of boys and girls under their parents...  It always seems like boys have all the ambition and no money to make it happen, and girls are given money but they have no ambition other than fashion.

Yeah I know what you were saying, just trying to make sense of my own failed pursuits involving females here. Side note, It's a good thing the bunnies and squirrels around here can't ask me for money though. I'd be broke.
