Why are there things specifically for girls but not for boys?

Give your opinion on why (Go by traditional gender roles) there are specific girl items but no more boy only items?

For example, girls have skirts, dresses, nail polishes, high heels, along with being able to wear pants.

What do boys have that are made for boys only? nothing.

They are only gender specific if you make them be. Girls have those things because that is what society deems normal.

I don't believe in gender specific toys or roles in society.

I can't answer that. I'm just one person. I guess there are though. That's why girls who do boys things are seen s tom boys and not lady-like.
