This article – Male and female brains wired differently, scans reveal – helps to show us that the two sexes God made are indeed different. Not only that, they are complementary and go well together. There is a reason God did not plan for two men to marry each other. And God made two different sexes and they are beautiful in their diversity. Men should not pretend to be women, and vice versa. And people should stop with the ridiculous notion that gender has nothing to do with biology.
One thing I’d like to point out, once again, is this: This article talks about general differences between men and women, but still each person is a unique individual. On any given characteristic, you might find someone of the opposite sex that is more pronounced in that characteristic than you, even though the trait is usually found in your own sex. But if you take a male as a whole person, and a female as a whole person, it would seem that they both would fit more of the general different traits for their different sexes, and have less traits that are unexpected for their sex.
I’d also like to add that men and women are more the same than we are different. So while the differences are there, we do a disservice to ourselves to make those differences into extremes, and have unhealthy expectations for how men and women should act. Just because women’s brains might be wired to be more emotionally involved than men’s brains, it doesn’t mean we should encourage the extremes of thinking that women are uncontrollably emotional and men are cold and stoic.
It’s about balance. We need to recognize that men and women are different and find beauty in that. But we don’t want to emphasize the differences to unhealthy extremes so as to make a person fill like they don’t fit in with the rest of the members of their sex because they do not fit those expected cultural extremes.
