When in fact women are just as gross as guys?
Probably even more disgusting than guys actually.

I honestly don't understand this either. Most girls I know have filthy apartments or junk lying around everywhere. Meanwhile, anyone jumps on the opportunity to call me "gay" because I keep things clean and tidy. There are some girls that are clean and tidy, but in my experience (at least with the guys I know) guys are generally tidier and cleaner.
Perhaps it's because women have "moved on" from the gender stereotypes of past times (they aren't really EXPECTED to clean anymore) but have retained the positive attributes associated with their sex even though they're not consistent with reality. I think that throughout history, cleanliness has also been a masculine trait. Men like to keep their work areas clean etc. So much media (sit coms, etc.) portraying men as dirty and disgusting has built up this annoying stereotype.
Of course some men are pretty gross too, not gonna lie. So, this answer mostly addresses the popular perception of the genders, rather than trying to make an actual generalization.2
