Better to derive it somewhere , than have none at all

So you have no problem with radical Muslims deriving morality from Quran?


Don't think so......

LOL religiophobic. That's rich coming from Christians who are "islamophobic".

Back on topic. I agree with the OP in that there is no clear definition of what a "woman" or "man" is as it relates to the brain. New studies show little if no difference in the chemical and material make up of the 2 sexes brains.

Wow good. Now you've been researching.

Here's what I'd like to see (assuming your last post is true). Do earlier studies show more of a degree of difference due to the cultural assumptions we ran with, or... did we simply not have enough data and our prior results were more bias than what it actually showed.

It would be interesting if we could prove that changing cultural mores changed our brain structure and function sufficiently to blur the lines between a "female brain" and "male brain".

Is it all in the head, or all in the thought things floating around?

There is some evidence that it is partially genetic. This professor doesn't know what he is talking about.

As to previous notions, I think we just have better ways to study these things now.

What source do you have for that?

Kinda like nature vs. nurture argument?

Other investigators have looked at sex differences through brain functioning. In a study published in 2014, psychologist Sarah M. Burke of VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam and biologist Julie Bakker of the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience used functional MRI to examine how 39 prepubertal and 41 adolescent boys and girls with gender dysphoria responded to androstadienone, an odorous steroid with pheromonelike properties that is known to cause a different response in the hypothalamus of men versus women. They found that the adolescent boys and girls with gender dysphoria responded much like peers of their experienced gender. The results were less clear with the prepubertal children.


Too drunk to continue lol.

Yes I suppose. I don't think they are mutually exclusive.

Yeah but it doesn't matter. The true nexus of this is did they choose to be that way?

Nope, not at all.

But of course, it is much easier to tell yourself I am. Then you can simply dismiss anything I say out of hand without having to think.

It's OK. Thinking is hard.

I don't know. Does someone who has a fear of heights choose to be that way?

But, are they born with that fear or can it happen to them after their birth?

There are things that happen to people that are not necessarily their choice that aren't a natural product of their nature either.

You can do without the insults.

The point is that when you guys call us "religiophobes" we can call you "islamophobes" and prove it. We can play the same game.
