Wellington, May 29 (ANI): While there are exceptions to the pros and cons that are linked with being a man or a woman, stereotypes generally spring from a version of reality and are believed to exist for a reason.

And it is based on these stereotypes that certain expectations are put on all persons, whether rightly or wrongly, in accordance with their gender.

Considering this, experts have now come up with a list of pros and cons of being a man or a woman, reports The Dominion Post.
