I would say it is true, just because of how differently boys and girls are raised. Boys are allowed to play, half-ass clean and maybe not do any house chores at all as we uphold traditional religious and patriarchal roles for boys and men. Mama serves daddy, and mom also allows the son to partake of boy stuff. Meanwhile girls are trained early through play how to cook (kitchen playsets and easy baker ovens), clean, take care of babies (via baby dolls), all while going to school, being responsible for some cooking household cooking (especially in some single parent households) siblings, or aiding mom and grandma with housekeeping.
