    I have a question: can you differentiate between boys' way of writing and girls' way ?? and is this question related to sociolinguistics?

    Yes, it is and people do suggest that there are differences in the language used by boys and girls.

    It's very hard to tell from a short amount of text. In Japanese, there are quite clear differences, apparently, but in English the language follows the same forms, but the distinctions are more subtle. Put up a longer text that you have written and I'll try to work it out.

    The i9ndicators are not obvious, but there are supposed to be thematic and stylistic differences.
