From this conversation we can conclude that an Objective Moral Truth is that willful harm to another is bad or immoral.
done at random or without careful judgment.
To accommodate this overlap, the researchers created a continuum of “femaleness” to “maleness,” for the entire brain. The male end zone contained features more typical of males, and the female end zone contained the version of the same structures more often seen in females. Then, the team scored every individual region-by-region to find out where they fell on that male-to-female continuum.
The majority of the brains were a mosaic of male and female structures, the team reports online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Depending on whether the researchers looked at gray matter, white matter, or the diffusion tensor imaging data, between 23% and 53% of brains contained a mix of regions that fell on the male-end and female-end of the spectrum. Very few of the brains—between 0% and 8%—contained all male or all female structures. “There is no one type of male brain or female brain,” Joel says.
So how to explain the idea that males and females seem to behave differently? That too may be a myth, Joel says. Her team analyzed two large datasets that evaluated highly gender stereotypical behaviors, such as playing video games, scrapbooking, or taking a bath. Individuals were just as variable for these measures: Only 0.1% of subjects displayed only stereotypically-male or only stereotypically-female behaviors.
Sure, there are obvious differences in primary sexual traits between men and women, but as far as being HUMAN we are more Venn Diagram than starkly different groups. 0-8% of us humans are all "male trait brains" or "female trait brains" exclusively.

Ok, Ok. I knew you were going to do that because I left out a word.
Where do we draw the line with social constructs and morality?
If something is rude, why is it rude and does that exist objectively or is it an intangible social construct?
Is male and female an idea and how much of a roll does biology play and where do we draw the line with reality and delusion?
Is respect an idea, a social construct or a morally objective idea that universally applies to everyone within the same sphere of understanding?
Do these issues and other issues like it exist cross culturally or are they issues that only exist within certain cultures?
How do we begin to define reality and delusion without moral objectivity?

You must be triggered since you're trying to suppress my free speech.
There's a lot of hatred and bigotry on ATS, get over people speaking against it, snowflake.
Now here is exactly where the waters get murky with the far left.
What do you mean by equal?
My position on this it that men and women are vastly different in both mentality and physicality.
I love the divinely feminine qualities that women poses and women who are one of the boys are in no way attractive to me. Do I have a problem with it? Nope, but do I want a boyish woman as a wife? Nope.
I am an alpha male, I am very masculine and I need a feminine woman in order to balance me out.
But clearly.... clear as day.. men and women are not the same.

As you can tell by the responses you are getting, the morality of the moral relativists is one of feelings. They do not like what you say and the only course of action seems to be to question your motives, and other trifles. Their solipsistic and self-serving principles can be condensed to this one: They don't feel feel that way, therefor you shouldn't either.
