Depends entirely on context, but it's humorous to act as if parents giving boys more freedom than daughters would be the cause of higher death count in boys. Boys do dumb shit and it does not stem from parents giving them more freedom than girls. Girls with the exact same freedom on average will not put themselves in life and death situations nearly as often as boys will. That's literally just guys being guys and doing dumb shit.

First that article has nothing to do with your question.
The same freedom, but obviously depends on what the kid does. I wouldn't punish both if one is a fuck up. Nor would I punish a brother for what his brother did. If one can be out at midnight and not be stupid and the other can't. Yea they won't have the same freedoms.

My parents were like this. It used to drive me crazy.
And no. I'm not going to do that. I can very easily picture myself being very protective generally, but I'm still going to try to give all of my kids freedom, within reason, regardless of gender.
