Are boys naturally more violent?

Yes I do think so. But I think it's a similar situation to pitbulls. Everyone thinks they're more violent and they have a potential to inflict a lot of violence. But a pitbull can be as sweet as any dog if given a loving upbringing. People just see them as weapons and raise them as such and so that's what people's impression is. People raise boys to be weapons but I don't think that they are more naturally violent. They have more potential to be violent and that's what people make them. All this is talking about physical violence which has its pros and cons too. Violence can mean a lot of things and I don't think boys have any more inherent malice to use various forms of violence than anyone.
