The hardwired difference between
male and female brains
could explain why men
are ´better at map reading´

Independent (UK), by Steve Conner

Original Article

Posted By:Bubbasuncle, 12/2/2013 10:39:46 PM

A pioneering study has shown for the first time that the brains of men and women are wired up differently which could explain some of the stereotypical differences in male and female behaviour, scientists have said. Researchers found that many of the connections in a typical male brain run between the front and the back of the same side of the brain, whereas in women the connections are more likely to run from side to side between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. This difference in the way the nerve connections in the brain are “hardwired” occurs during

That is a truly fascinating question #1. Do liberals and conservatives brains differ? It would be neat to find out if there really is a physiological difference to account for it.
The problem would be to find an unbiased academic to look in to it.

But we´ve been told that there is no difference between men and women - its just a social construct.

#6 incorrectly posits that liberals have brains.

But I agree. A fascinating question because clearly, their wiring is tragically wrong.

Plus, they usually smell bad.

Baloney! And to heck with feminists...I am not happy with the spreading of junk "science". My male roommate is terrible with maps and directions. He can´t find his way out of a paper bag even if you tell him 7 times! On the other hand, I am great with maps and directions (unless you deacribe everything by common landmarks (like turn right at the Pizza Hut and go all the way down past the Chevron until you see the stop sign after the park -- ugh, I hate that!! What are the street names???) Otherwise, I can navigate almost by the sun alone.

For how many decades have the Gender Socialists, I mean the feminists, taught us that:

There is no difference whatsoever between the sexes. Yet, women are better than men.
Masculinity and femininity are artificial, constricting "roles". Yet, men should be more feminine and women more masculine.
Using gender as a criteria - for anything at all - is "sexism". Yet, gender is the only criteria which may be used when espousing theories of "oppression" by the male of the female.
Men try to keep women down because they fear "strong, independent" women. Yet, it is "sexist" when men protect women out of love.

What kind of a brain can hold this mutually exclusive nonsense and remain sane?

One suspects the only "science" that will be acceptable between now and 2016 will be that which "proves" The Smartest Woman In The World" can read a map just as well as The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived.

When these crime shows do autopsies, they are always pointing out the skeletal and blood differences (bodies)between men, women and races.
What I find interesting is the huge amount of action shows/movies that show women engaged in combat/shooting/physical confrontations with men and the women doing so well. We have truly become delusional in this world. Of course there is a difference. HE really did have a plan....until we started messing with it.

#15, you might want to talk to a shooting instructor. Any honest one will tell you women are better shooters than men. They have a lower center of gravity making it easier for them to get into and change stable shooting positions. They also don´t have what my NRA instructor called testosterone poisoning; they take the time to aim rather than seeing how quickly they can empty the magazine. :-)

My dad was a "teamster" after he dropped out of school at 12 to run one team of mules while his father worked another, moving oil derricks back when they were built out of 12" X 12" timbers.

He gave directions by landmarks...go 3 miles to the rock barn and turn left and go 5 miles to the blue house. My mom gave directions by street names and numbers. I learned both, and when I give directions, often I use both...go 3 miles to Smith Street by the rock barn, turn left and go 5 miles to Jones Road with a blue house on the corner.

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine, Ukraine - Masked gunmen stormed the parliament of Ukraine´s strategic Crimea region as Russian fighter jets screamed above the border, while Ukraine´s newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with the strong backing of the West - the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship. Moscow reportedly granted shelter to Ukraine´s fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, who was said to be holed up in a luxury government retreat and to have scheduled a news conference Friday near the Ukrainian border.

Piers Morgan and CNN Plan

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

NEW ORLEANS — AJ McCarron got up slowly and walked alone to the sideline with the full weight of another dispiriting loss weighing him down. His fumble on a sack turned into an Oklahoma touchdown with 47 seconds left, sealing the Sooners’ 45-31 victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night. In a painful twist, McCarron ended his illustrious college career by losing twice in a row after going 36-2 in his first 38 games at Alabama. Oklahoma, a 17-point underdog, scored two touchdowns off his interceptions in the first half before capping the upset by returning his

Most knockout victims that have appeared in news reports have been white, but the Justice Department said in this instance the victim was a 79-year-old black man, and stepped in with federal charges. “Suspected crimes of this nature will simply not be tolerated,” said Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. attorney for the southern district of Texas. “Evidence of hate crimes will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted with

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.
