LOL! Sadly, yes, they are. I was reading an article earlier about people who get all hung up on “male” and “female” brains being different, with the underlying assumption that male brains are better at all the things that are important, but at least women are more “verbal” — which then gets used against them for talking too much.

The very scientific article actually laid out very plainly how there’s a huge variation in all human brains and ours might not even “map” the same for us on a different day. So many things need to be factored in. The take-away was, why don’t we just let people be people and stop trying to make everything binary.

A couple of guys who were very incensed had to chime in about sexism and god only knows what that irritated them about all of that. Perhaps it was the indication that they weren’t just biologically superior afterall. You wouldn’t believe some of the drivel I’ve gotten at times.

But thanks for your humorous response and sorry I was too jaded to catch it!
