There are significant and important differences between male-typical and female-typical brains, in terms of both morphology and functioning. Anyone who doubts this should read a book by a renowned Dutch neuroscientist with an unfortunate name, Dick Swaab, We Are Our Brains: From the Womb to Alzheimer’s. It’s a fascinating read, even if you have no interest in the gender-patterned brain issue. We are ‘hard-wired’ in the womb for far more characteristics than is generally believed, including sexuality and gender identity.
To be persuaded of the compelling evidence for gender-typical brains is, needless to say, a thoughtcrime to feminists. So I was interested to read an interesting piece in today’s Times titled, ‘Sexism fears hamper brain research’. A part of today’s editorial is titled, ‘Brain Scam: It is not sexist to point out that men’s and women’s brains are biologically different’. Both pieces are here.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
