"Little girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice."

Typical little girl propaganda. I've known a lot of girls in my 26 years on this planet. When I was at the age where I was theoretically made of "snips and snails and puppy dog's tails" most of the girls I knew were bullies. They found it funny to get the boys in trouble and then get off the hook themselves. Because the adults thought they were too 'sweet' to have had any involvement. I've also seen it to be true of those young'uns coming up in the world. That said I know from personal experience that little boys can be right bastards. I think this one is too close to call.
