It’s All In Your Head


One of the keystones of modern Feminism is the “blank slate” argument.  This concept states that the brains of males and females have almost no natural differences, and any that typically appear are solely due to societal pressures and “sexist” nurturing by parents or other caregivers.

But what does the scientific evidence show regarding this assertion? Are male brains truly the same as female ones, and vice versa? The answer, much to Feminist dismay, appears to be no. With the aid of current medical technology, our understanding of the human brain is steadily becoming clearer. But what are some of these differences you may ask? Let’s take a look at some of the most common ones.

Brain Size
It should be obvious by simply looking at the general size differences between the bodies of men and women, but men tend to have larger brains. What might surprise the average reader, though, is that this is true even when accounting for said differences. When we compare a man and woman with the same height, weight, and build, the male will still have a slightly larger brain. Though the jury remains out on the exact reason for this, the next section may provide a possible answer.

Gray vs White Matter
Our central nervous system (Brain + Spinal Cord) is composed of these two distinct types of matter. In a very basic nutshell, gray matter is made up of active neuronal cell bodies and white matter is the myleinated axons that allow communication between them. Think of the gray matter as computers, and the white as network connections.

On average, women have 10x more white matter than men, and men have 6.5x more gray matter than women.  Women’s neurons have also been found to be more densely packed than men’s, which tend to spread out further (thus making a larger brain). Thus, in a study involving sounding out words, men used only a small part of the left side of their brains, but women used both halves…and yet both sexes scored equally well. This fact has long had great medical implications for male stroke victims, who may take longer to recover their ability to speak due to the biological lack of as many connections between the two sides of their brain.

Hypothalamus
The most notable difference here in male and female brains resides in the medial preoptic area, which helps control mating behaviors and copulation. In males, this section is not only 2.2x larger, but it has twice the amount of cells. This may help explain why women, in general, have a less insistent libido than their male peers.

Hippocampus
Ever wonder why men seem to have better spatial skills? It probably comes down to their brain’s automatic use of the hippocampus. While women use parts of their cerebral cortex (located above it) to navigate, men use the left side of their hippocampus. Interestingly, this doesn’t appear to be activated in women’s brains during navigation or spatial tests at all, despite the female hippocampus being slightly larger.

This is likely because said segment is also responsible for memory retaining (turning short-term memories into long-term) as well as connecting emotional details to them. So next time your girlfriend or wife remembers a fight you had 2 years ago that you can’t recall at all, you’ll know why.

Hemispheres
Recent studies have shown that the male brain is far more intra-connected, whereas the female brain is significantly more inter-connected. This means, for example, that the anterior and posterior of a man’s left or right hemisphere can “speak” more fluently than a woman’s, which facilitates superior spatial perception and coordinated motor actions. On the other hand, women’s increased connectivity between their right and left hemispheres leads to superior use of analytical and intuitive processing.

Anterior Cingulate Cortex
This section of the brain is where subjective (not genital) responses to sexual stimuli are processed, and is more active in women. It has been identified as a potential reason for the results of Dr Meredith Chivers’ 4 year study into human arousal. By showing her participants both explicitly sexual and non-sexual nude videos of men and women while connected to devices that measured genital blood flow, it was found that straight men became genitally aroused by nearly all female depictions, and gay men became genitally aroused by nearly all male ones. Lesbians reacted opposite to gay men, of course. Strangely, straight women became genitally aroused by both men and women, but responded to videos of even non-sexual nude women faster than sexually explicit videos of men.

But what does this study have to do with the ACC? Well, although both groups of men reported knowing they were genitally aroused almost 70% of the time, both groups of women only reported it approximately 26%. In other words, women had significantly greater difficulty acknowledging their body’s arousal response than men, and experienced far more mental separation from it. Hence, the oft-repeated fact that men have a greater libido…or at least can realize they’re horny more often.

What about trans-brains?
So with all these drastic differences, how would a trans person come to be? It very likely has to do with the timing of androgen release in the fetal body. In the first 6-12 weeks of pregnancy, a defemininization process will occur if there is an influx of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone, which creates male body parts like the penis, prostate, and testes. If these are absent, the fetus will continue to grow as a female. However, significant brain development doesn’t occur until weeks 19-23…far after the genitals are already fully developed.

Thus, if there is a continued influx of either testosterone or estrogen into an opposite sexed baby during this time, such hormones will only be able to alter the brain. This is how one can be a person like myself who has the outer look of a female but with a masculine-typed brain structure, and vice versa. It’s important to note that this doesn’t appear in a significant portion of the population though, and studies suggest it only affects .03% of us.

Of course, there are far more structural differences between the sexes that I haven’t mentioned. It truly is amazing to know that both a man and woman can perform the same tasks (like reading this paragraph, for instance) yet be using completely separate parts of their brains to do so. Similarly, it is fantastic to learn just how complementary the two are in other areas of life…and how much society suffers for its neglect towards the masculine.

  11. It’s pretty clear in many cases that the behavior of male and female animals can be quite different but it seems to work. Having a specialized role that’s part of a larger picture is not necessarily bad, is it? Is day better than night? Is hot better than cold? Could we even appreciate day and night or hot and cold without the opposite contrast? I lived somewhere always hot and sunny for many years and actually it’s quite monotonous. I miss it sometimes, but I prefer distinct seasons far more.

    Interesting information from Wikipedia.

    Pollyanna mindset:
    Researchers Margaret Matlin and David Stang provided substantial evidence of the Pollyanna Principle. They found that people expose themselves to positive stimuli and avoid negative stimuli, they take longer to recognize what is unpleasant or threatening than what is pleasant and safe, and they report that they encounter positive stimuli more frequently than they actually do. Matlin and Stang also determined that selective recall was a more likely occurrence when recall was delayed: the longer the delay, the more selective recall that occurred.

    Depressive realism mindset:
    Depressive realism is the hypothesis developed by Lauren Alloy and Lyn Yvonne Abramson that depressed individuals make more realistic inferences than do non-depressed individuals. Although depressed individuals are thought to have a negative cognitive bias that results in recurrent, negative automatic thoughts, maladaptive behaviors, and dysfunctional world beliefs,depressive realism argues not only that this negativity may reflect a more accurate appraisal of the world but also that non-depressed individuals’ appraisals are positively biased. This theory remains very controversial, as it brings into question the mechanism of change that cognitive behavioral therapy for depression purports to target. While some of the evidence currently supports the plausibility of depressive realism, its effect may be restricted to a select few situations.

    Speaking of positive social changes, Scott Adams has a (relatively) uplifting piece on that subject here, entitled “Citizen Government”.

    http://blog.dilbert.com/post/144908299636/citizen-government

    “Thiel’s play – assuming it is true – is totally legal. Thiel just makes sure the lawyers get paid whether they win or lose. Like me, I assume he is acting out of a combination of revenge and a desire to make the world a better place.

    This is another example in which I think citizens are taking a more active role in fixing the world when government isn’t the right tool for the job. There’s something in the air now – maybe because of Trump – that feels intensely American. And by that I mean not waiting around for someone (such as the government) to fix your problem. We’re a nation of problem-solvers. I would argue that problem-solving is the most basic American character trait.

    You need something invented? We’re on it.

    You need a dictator removed? Can do.

    You need economic stability in the world? Working on it!

    Don’t like having a king? We can design a better system.

    At the moment, citizens see our government as defective and they see Donald Trump as a wrecking ball. Step one: Demolition.

    Step two is the scary part. What happens when you break the government? Do we devolve into chaos, anarchy, or dictatorship? Well, that might happen to some countries. In America, when stuff is broken, we fix it. And if it ain’t broken, we’ll break it anyway, just to fix it better. That’s sort of our thing. And we’re good at it.

    I predict we’re going to see a wave of citizen involvement that is unprecedented. People everywhere (especially billionaires) are seeing that government can’t do everything. So they are stepping in. Gates is fixing Africa and whatnot. Thiel is planning floating cities to solve some types of immigration issues and more. And Mark Cuban probably has some good work ahead of him.”

    Before gender politics came to rule over the subject…were men’s and women’s average IQs as near as they are now? I’ve seen anything between 2 and 5 points difference in means for caucasians, though rumour has it that in asians there isn’t any(?) gap between the genders. Have the tests been doctored over time to try and get the means equal? (I’m sure they have, but what happens if have different tests and give men the female one too…and vice versa)

    Hmm so that’s two points.

    Leading to a third; are the smartest and dumbest women the ones with the most masculine brains? With female brains truly more in the middle of even the female distribution of IQ.

    Also, I’ve heard that the lower SD of female IQs is down to their two X chromosones fighting it out throughout the body & brain (same with cat fur, there are only female tortoiseshell cats (2 colours + white) because the feline X carries the fur colour. Toms are only one colour + white). For better or worse male brains are coherent in X, female brains are more the result of a battle over which X is dominant in each cell / region – they cancel out the lows and highs of the result on average.

    Clearly the genetic effects and testosterone in womb effects combine, clouding the issue

    It may have to do, in part, with the reason they’re on it in the first place. If one is a married woman who’s desirous of increasing the flock, but is taking birth control at the behest of her husband or doctor, I can imagine she’d become resentful towards it and exacerbate any negative reactions.

    If she’s a 22 year old single woman, fresh out of college and looking to seriously focus on parts of her life not involving unplanned pregnancy, then she may still have some negative biological reactions, but decide that it’s worth putting up with to remain child-free.

    contraception?

    i took a low-dose pill the first two years of my first marriage b/c i really didn’t want to get pregnant – it had more to do with not wanting to be like my mom than anything. but that little pill made me sick … so much so i finally had to get off it (dizzy, light-headed, sick to my stomach).

    when i was pregnant i had to take progesterone both times for at least the first half of each (can’t remember exactly how long now). i had to find a pharmacist who could mix a natural concoction to take b/c the synthetic progesterone made me super ill, and pregnancy was already making me sick.

    so i refuse to take any kind of synthetic hormones or to have any kind of procedure that would mess w/my hormones.

    Absolutely. You can barely read through a study involving hormones, mating, commitment, attraction, and similar topics without hearing of how different male and female rats/voles/mice/etc acted.

    And if you want to learn about mating behaviors? Geez! The information is simply staggering. Birds especially are incredibly dimorphic in their displays and wooing techniques. Ironic, since both males and females have interior genitals.

    True, but for some birds you have a very good idea as early as after their first molting. Budgies have different colored ceres (nostrils), for example, and almost all mutations of cockatiel have wing + tail barring patterns if female and none if male.

    Everybody’s talking about the new Nathan Heller piece in The New Yorker, profiling the new left-wing student activist generation at Oberlin College. And boy, is it quite a read. You can read it and guffaw at the crazy Social Justice Warriors, but there’s something deeper going on there (and on many other campuses). Here’s the nut graf:

    Such reports flummoxed many people who had always thought of themselves as devout liberals. Wasn’t free self-expression the whole point of social progressivism? Wasn’t liberal academe a way for ideas, good and bad, to be subjected to enlightened reason? Generations of professors and students imagined the university to be a temple for productive challenge and perpetually questioned certainties. Now, some feared, schools were being reimagined as safe spaces for coddled youths and the self-defined, untested truths that they held dear. Disorientingly, too, none of the disputes followed normal ideological divides: both the activists and their opponents were multicultural, educated, and true of heart. At some point, it seemed, the American left on campus stopped being able to hear itself think.

    Yeah, whatever. “Jane Bond.”

    Here’s a crazy idea. If you really wanted to do this, why make her James Bond?

    Are these idiots aware that James Bond exists in a particular cinematic universe and works for a fictitious version of a real-world organization? What I’m getting at is why make 007 a woman — why not just introduce a new female double-oh agent called 009?

    A James Bond type adventure, with a double-oh lead, but the lead is a female.

    Hell, let’s make it more interesting: Her secondary mission goal is to locate and rescue (if he’s still alive*) 007, who disappeared while investigating the villain.**

    She can liberate 007 from the dungeon near the end, then the two of them can fight their way out.***

    The “follow-the-missing-00-agent” is a classic (overused) James Bond opening plot gambit — the missing agent has already done most of the investigative work, he just disappeared (was killed, usually) before transmitting his findings.

    So why not make that missing agent 007? And let this new female agent track him down?

    Why is the Social Justice Warrior imagination so incredibly stunted that it cannot even imagine imagining its own new things? Why can it only imagine old things, given a new racial or sexual make-over?

    Why are they altogether incapable of any kind of creative or productive thought whatsoever?

    Oh that’s right: Because these are stupid, useless, trivially-minded people.

    I’d better let up on the ‘mones (or ‘monal precursor whatnots).
    At any rate, if I start screaming at folks, you’ll know what’s up.

  168. @ Liz, I am of the belief that a lot of aging and skin is genetics. Well and bad decisions made in youth that catch up later (like endless sun tanning). I used to belong to a garden club, by far the youngest member. Most of the ladies were very well off, and were dabbling in skin care/cosmetic surgery/etc. in hopes of retaining their looks. Thing is, the ones who went that route just got weirder and weirder looking, while those who aged gracefully and naturally (while eating well and staying active) looked far more beautiful in the end. After seeing that I came to the belief that each phase of a women’s life is to be celebrated and embraced for what it is at that time, including old age. So don’t sweat it babe, it seems to me the wife goggles are firmly in place and Mike likely sees you just as you were when you met! 🙂

    Agreed. There’s no need to alter an existing character just to reach some idiotic diversity quota. That was done with the most recent Fantastic Four movie by Fox(? Or is it owned by Sony?) Absolutely terrible. Sue being the white adopted daughter and her brother Johnny being black was shoehorned in like a bull through a china shop. Bleh.

    I’m just confused about where this happened in Civil War. The only 2 main black characters were Falcon and Black Panther, both of whom are black throughout their comic history.

    The entire, pointless, offensive debate over “transgender pronouns” and everything else which goes along with it is occupying a lot of media bandwidth these days, but there’s one aspect of the discussions which remains widely ignored. It’s always unpopular with the SJW forces to ask about the rights of others when these various grievances are listed, but what of the free speech rights of those being imposed on by demands of these special snowflakes? For at least the second time, Eugene Volokh tackles that question today in relation to a Portland, Oregon teacher who has received a sizable settlement over “damages” incurred because her colleagues refused to use the plural term “they” to refer to her.

    I blogged last week about the New York City Commission on Human Rights legal guidance on transgender pronouns: Among other things, the commission stated that employers, landlords, businesses and professionals had to use employees’, tenants’, customers’ and clients’ preferred pronouns, including “they/them/theirs or ze/hir,” or face the risk of huge civil liability. Now the Oregonian (Casey Parks) reports on a settlement in one such case in Portland. (I saw a copy of the complaint and the settlement agreement, and some of the quotes are from there.)

    Leo Soell, born Brina, and a schoolteacher in the Gresham-Barlow (Oregon) School District, “do[es] not identify as male or female but rather transmasculine and genderqueer, or androgynous.” Soell wants people to call Soell “they,” and submitted a complaint to the school district objecting (in part) that other schoolteachers engaged in “harassment” by, among other things, “refusing to call me by my correct name and gender to me or among themselves” (emphasis added), as well as posting “messages on Facebook that denigrate transgender people.”

    As Dreher adequately documents, the hegemonic narrative regarding gender is clearly insane. And while the level of insanity has climbed exponentially in the past decade, virtually everyone under-30 (my generation) has been marinated in relentless gender-equivalence propaganda since kindergarden. But, as the male cohort grows older, the distance between the experienced reality of of the dating market and the official dogma becomes unsustainable. The cognitive dissonance is simply too great, and boys are driven to seek answers elsewhere. And those answers come, with varying degrees of accuracy and crudity, from the PUA/Game/MRA/RedPill blogs.

The show came from the east of England, the bit particularly swamped by Euro-immigrants. London specialises in more exotic types.

    While half the panel talked said bollocks (remainiacs) the other half (brexiters) made more balanced points. The tone of the audience was generally encouraging. Everyone is sick of the remainiac lies and distortions.

    Well, duh. The majority of comic readers are 15-30 year old white males, followed by white females of similar ages. But still, wouldn’t it just look weird to only have white, male characters? A lot of these stories are supposed to be reflective of our world…just with the addition of superpowers and magic. The world consists of men and women, blacks and whites, Hispanics and Asians, people who are incredibly white like me ranging all the way to so dark skinned they are almost *actually* black.

    I don’t know anything about the area you live in. Maybe you go entire days without seeing someone who isn’t the same pigmentation as you. But where I live, I can’t even take 1 lap around my local grocery store and not see the majority of ethnicities I mentioned above. It would freak me out to only see other white people around, because I’m really used to seeing so much variety of humanity.

    I guess that’s why comics don’t bother me at all. But if the differences I’m used to aren’t your/JDG’s cup of tea, then that’s cool too. People tend to lean towards what they are familiar with in some forms of entertainment. To each their own.

    1. Why “oversharing” it is to answer a fellow commenters question regarding a topic they are not personally experienced with?

    2. How “oversharing” occurred twice it did?

    Clothes are clothes. Underwear or bras aren’t more special just because they’re closer to the body than one’s jeans or tshirts.

    Tarn,
    When Victoria was Queen, men were erotically stimulated by seeing a woman let her hair down and brush it. That is because they only let their hair down before bed.
    The same response may apply to underwear for modern men.

    Oh, I understand the concept of it being appealing and erotic, Fuzzie. Women spend a large amount of money on lingerie, and there’s various shops/sites that sell sexy male clothing too. I’m just saying it wouldn’t be “heartfelt” for me, because nudity is 1000% more erotic in *my* opinion. Clothing, even specifically sexualized clothing, doesn’t do much for me.

  272. I also wear underwire bras, not for the push up factor but bc the non underwire just don’t cut it. I would rather go sans bra honestly but it just causes way too much ruckus. So underwire it is, w nip shields to boot. Men are already aroused 70%of the time, right? No need to torment them! 🙂

    This is pretty funny. Thanks for all the updates and disclosures, girls. It was certainly difficult and time-consuming to pry the information out of you.

    I first encountered an underwire bra when I was 21. The girl was also 21 or 22. I don’t know how to describe what happened next, other than to recall the Dudley Moore remark, “And then they fell, like condemned men on the gallows.” Or something.

    I’ve been a fan of uppies ever since.

    French professional women spend 30% of their income on lingerie. This checks out. I bought the psycho airline captain some La Perla one Christmas, and I got a great Christmas card selfie for several years thereafter. Alas, now she’s too fat to model them, and just sends nudes. I’m not sure why fat girls send nude selfies.

    (waxing/sugaring changes the root of the hair follicle. First rip after you’ve been shaving is excruciating, but after that not so much…sugaring is even better hardly hurts at all, after the first time…Cleopatra did it!) Plus, no bumps at all, no ingrown either after you’ve done it a while. It’s awesome!

I much prefer an understated landing strip style via waxing bc its once and done for weeks w/o stubble but I cant do it myself so I have to go have it done, and well then it’s just another thing to do, while the razor is right there, convienence often wins out!

    I used to do it myself (well, Mike did it…I could never get up the nerve to pull the damn wax off on my own). But eventually I paid to get it done.
    Sugaring isn’t common….it’s pretty hard to find a person who does it, but it’s great when you do. A while ago I got a home zapper so I don’t need to wax or sugar anymore (for the level ground part of my topiary-scape). 😉

    She’s a handful. Had an epic fight on Facebook a couple of years ago when she decided that another Russian woman was flirting with me and so before I knew it she was calling the other Russian a “whore” and a “bitch” and that she “fat like over-hill whore” “cunt has smells” (no articles in Russian grammar). (I’ve never seen anything like it, except when I was dating another Russian.) The stream of abuse was so amazing I egged her on a little bit. I try to stay on her good side. Th

    OTOH, she’s Russian to the core and expects/demands men to act like men. This is quite refreshing.
