I think this is intentional, first men are children then girls are women. what are they trying to say?

This makes no sense. Should be removed.

Agreed - This seems to be a correct, but bizarre, translation.
One of these cases where a sentence can be valid while expressing an illogical idea.

I think that the sentence says about the genre of girls, in general.

Is there any way to tell if someone is saying "Les" or "le" through listening only? They sound identical to me, as do some other words that end in "s".

"The daughters are women" is also accepted, which I believe is less nonsensical.
