Sometimes, they've been asked to discuss something the So, why the consistent gender difference in previous research? Letty Cottin Pogrebin's son didn't reject playing with dolls and tea sets, just as her identical twin daughters didn't reject the non-gender stereotyped toys and behaviors she encouraged them to have.
Even the late Carl Henry (a theologian with impeccable credentials as a conservative evangelical) noted a quarter of a century ago that: Masculine and feminine elements are excluded from both the Old Testament and New Testament doctrine of deity. When Scripture speaks of God as “he” the pronoun is primarily personal (generic) rather than masculine (specific); it emphasizes God’s personal nature—and, in turn, that of the Father, Son and Spirit as Trinitarian distinctions in contrast to impersonal entities... For her new book, *Pink Brain, Blue Brain: How Small Differences Grow Into Troublesome Gaps—And What We Can Do About It,* Eliot immersed herself in hundreds of scientific papers (her bibliography runs 46 pages).
In our society, men have traditionally had more power in relationships than women, so women often found themselves as the ones pressing for change. But even when power is not uneven, women are choosing to press issues because they want changes, not because they handle differently than men. Physical abuse in relationships is almost always committed by men. S., Click, L., Cerulli, C., Mc Nutt, L., & Kaslow, N. "It’s destructive to base your decisions about your relationships on gender stereotypes. And there is a lot wrong with sexist very limiting gender roles,gender myths and gender stereotypes that are mostly artificially created by the very sexist,gender divided,gender stereotyped,woman-hating male dominated family and society we all live in,which makes both sexes,into only half of a person,instead of full human people able to develop and express their full shared *human* traits,abilities,and behaviors etc.

An event-level analysis of the sexual characteristics and composition among adults ages 18 to 59: Results from a national probability sample in the United States. Some are flat out wrong, but even if there is a kernel of truth to them they tend to exaggerate that truth, and are not constructive in dealing with the unique individuals that we have relationships with." It's too bad that the numerous ignorant posters on Psychology Today won't read this article, or they will choose to dispute it based on...stereotypical thinking. And then these artificial gender differences continue to reinforce gender inequalities,male dominance and men's violence against women,children and even each other.
I don't have a link to this article because I can't find it online anymore. There are, it turns out, virtually no large, consistent sex differences in any psychological traits and behaviors, even when we consider the usual stereotypical suspects: that men are more aggressive, or just, or rational than women, and women are more empathic, verbal, or nurturing than men. In another study, mothers estimated how steep a slope their 11-month-olds could crawl down.
When differences are found, they are always average—not absolute—differences. Moms of boys got it right to within one degree; moms of girls underestimated what their daughters could do by nine degrees, even though there are no differences in the motor skills of infant boys and girls.
