  1. As a father of an 18 year-old girl, I can attest that girls in a pack can tend to be very catty. Particularly if they are forced together. Where as a group of boys will have a physical confrontation and then call it good, the girls will just let it seethe and fester and express itself in back hand comments and snotty remarks.

    Of course, if I was a malignant entity, that may be exactly who I want to recruit. They would fight too much to pay attention to me.
