Default Who Begins Puberty Earlier? Girls? Boys?

Who begins puberty at an earlier age, girls or boys?

It seems that reading the posts about puberty that girls seem to begin puberty at an earlier age than boys? Is this true? Are there any reasons for that? Or, do you think that boys begin puberty at an earlier age than girls?

I would have to say that girls begin puberty earlier and mature faster than boys do.

I am gay and happy with that.
I love talking to people very open & willing to listen.
I am also glad to try help with questions or problems.
Hit me up for anything. I promise I don't bite.

Studies show that girls begin (on average) at age 11 while boys begin at 12.

It's also considered normal range for a girl to start at 8 and a boy 9. Doctors don't get involved at that age, only earlier.

yeah girls start puberty a few years before guys, that's why theres that stage in primary school when the girls are taller than the boys, then the boys catch up

In my experience we began talking about boys and love before the boys started talking about anything else than sports and games

We were taught in school that girls do. They get taller first, felt like a 4th grader sometimes last year until I had a growth spurt

Everything pretty much shows that girls start a year or more before boys

Me and my sister both started to develop at 10, but our brother didn't start until he was 14.5. Go figure!
There is boy in my sister's class who is 12. He is 5ft, 10inch, and about 200lbs. Not fat, just huge. He is so big he could play HS football

Girls begin quite a bit earlier, that's what I learnt at school, and it's also quite visible when they hit it before guys.

I'd say girls start earlier based on science, but from my life my girl and guy friends are pretty equal in development

Boys stay innocent longer

When I was 13 I was more concerned with playing Minecraft than noticing girls, but the girls were probably already looking at me in a naughty way

I remember some of the girls had boobs in 4th grade (that’s 9 to 10 years old) and I was like not interested. Definitely girls start sooner than boys

I'd always heard that girls begin earlier than boys.

I do remember reading somewhere that the average age for first period is 12 1/2 which I'd also seen suggested as the average age of 1st ejaculation. As these could be seen as equivalents it might give the wrong impression, though, because girls have significant development before their 1st period, for example breasts and maybe even the start of their growth spurt, whereas for boys 1st ejaculation is earlier in puberty and there are significant changes after that, for example growth spurt, voice, hair (other than pubic, i.e. armpit, face, etc)
