ozarque figure

Recommended link; "gender" and brains....

I am deeply grateful to Mark Liberman for all the work -- the very hard work -- he has done putting together his lengthy overviews of research claiming that "male brains" and "female brains" have inherent differences leading to "genetically-determined sex roles." I strongly recommend the one posted on September 10th -- "Open-access sex stereotypes" -- at http://itre.cis.upenn.edu/~myl/languagelog/archives/003565.html#more . Links galore, to Liberman's other posts on the topic as well as to many of the original papers that are being cited as evidence.

Slippery, slippery slopes out there....
