This () is so weird, bordering on perverse. Q is: given many details of their brain, how reliably can you predict someone's sex? Research shows it's between 80% () & 93% ( ) of the time.
Cordelia Fine trying to explain why statistical differences between groups are completely irrelevant for any differences in outcomes between groups. Yes, the article is a huge mess.
How does the NY Times get away with blatantly lying about the state of the art in sex differences research? 1) publish hatchet jobs as 'opinion' pieces' rather than as actual science reporting 2) ignore evolution, sexual selection, SRY, and other species.
No, not if we want to call ourselves scientists who choose biology over gender ideology. There are observable differences in structure, function, and behavior between male and female brains. Deal with it.
Dear , I am an evolutionary behavioral scientist who has conducted a lot of research on sex differences. I would be delighted to write a rebuttal to your recent opinion piece.
It is difficult to stomach such dishonest stupidity. [I, only with countless other evolutionists, let alone this thing known as reality, have repeatedly refuted this gargantuan idiocy.]
This is a straw man argument, that fails to address the differences in the bell curve in male/female characteristics. "Can We Finally Stop Talking About ‘Male’ and ‘Female’ Brains?"

The notion of fundamentally female and male brains is a misconception, write Daphna Joel and Cordelia Fine. Brains and behavior are the product of the combined interactions of innumerable causal influences, that include, but go beyond, sex-linked factors.
Let's stop talking about male and female brains
great piece on brains and how we think about them by two of my favorite researchers and authors--Daphna Joel and Cordelia Fine--"Can We Finally Stop Talking About ‘Male’ and ‘Female’ Brains?"

Can We Finally Stop Talking About ‘Male’ and ‘Female’ Brains?
"humans generally don’t have brains with mostly or exclusively “female-typical” features or “male-typical” features. ... what’s most common ... are brains with “mosaics” of features, some of them more common in males and some more common in females"
“The notion of fundamentally female and male brains or natures is a misconception. Brains and behavior are the product of the combined, continuous interactions of innumerable causal influences, that include, but go well beyond, sex-linked factors.”
Can’t wait till this idea goes away. Feminists have been fighting the incorrect belief that our sex determines our personalities and abilities for hundreds of years but clearly this idea of an essential nature is hard for people to shake
Yes, please, there’s no scientific evidence for it.
“when you move away from group-level differences in single features and focus at the level of the individual brain or person, you find that the differences, regardless of their origins, usually “mix up” rather than “add up.””
