I appreciate hearing from you on this and know that you speak as a scientist. But one of the things you mentioned is that men are more aggressive, and yet, one of the studies I cited said that when both men and women believe they won’t be identified by their gender, women actually showed up as more aggressive than men. I think it’s just nearly impossible to truly parse out what is nature and what is nurture because there is no great way to separate those two.
