I Shall Tell Daddy On You

People use whatever power they have. If you are male, muscular and a bit dim, you may attain your aims by physical force or the threat thereof. If you are female, small and trained all your life in advanced social skills, you may if you wish attain your aims by prim and proper tattling to Authority. (As La Paglissima pointed out, that generally means male authority.)

This tattling gives you a double whammy: not only do you get your way, but you get to consider yourself ineffably superior to the beefy dimwit, even though you are both doing much the same thing.
