I would like to make the argument that there is no difference between men and women whatsoever, and that our perceived differences are merely the sociological conditioning that both sexes endure from the time that we are infants and on.
Take for instance a family with a son and daughter. The family will most likely buy plastic guns for their son and dresses for their daughter. From the very beginning a male is instilled with the idea that his masculinity is in question unless he can be emotionless and violent, we encourage our daughters to play dress up because that is exactly how society will judge them later on in life...according to their perceived beauty.
I disagree, as a mother (also) i believe its sociological conditioning, your probably not even aware that your doing it, when i was married, i worked longer hours than my husband, and was expected to cook two meals a day and wash up, clean the house look after the children and on the odd occasion (once a week) he would wash the dishes, i was expected to respond with a fanfare and a congratulations all round, dont tell me i wasnt condtioned to this role and his to his. (not that it happens anymore because im free now!!)

I must disagree (respectfully). I have two sons and a daugher (I'm mom) and there are differences in the sexes. Emotionally they are completely different; it doesn't matter how you raise them. We are just different. Estrogen and testosterone make it that way.
