Must not say that male and female brains are different

There are a lot of men who say that they will never understand women but that doesn't count, I guess

Scientists have hit out at a London museum over an exhibit which apparently reveals whether a person’s brain is male or female.

Visitors at Science Museum London can take part by answering a number of questions – with a ‘sex-o-meter’ analysing the responses.

An arrow then points to a blue or pink section, representing male and female respectively.

But some people have slated the exhibit on social media for its ‘antiquated gender stereotypes’ while researchers have also questioned its value.

The test says that men can see things better in three dimensions and are more able to imagine how things rotate while women have better visual memories and can distinguish more easily between subtle details.

Dr Joseph Devlin, head of experimental psychology at University College London, told CNN he was ‘surprised’ at the exhibit.

He said: ‘The Science Museum has an impressive track record and I really respect their work in science communication. This particular exhibit is not at all representative of the work they do.’

Dr Devlin added: ‘Disentangling cause and effect is tricky but to my mind, claiming that there are 'male' or 'female' brains is disingenuous and grossly oversimplifies a complex topic.’

A long time ago there was a notice in a newspaper about an adult education course in accounting for men and women. Someone wrote to the newspaper that there is just no accounting for women.

The brains of most all liberals is he size of a walnut and the collage proffesors have the same sized brains as well as all their students who oppose Campus Carry and Fracking

I would have thought the transgender folks would like this. It could back up their insistence that their brain is the gender they wish to be. Unless it contradicts what they say?

A woman never forgets the slightest mistake you have ever made. She will crucify you because you left the toilet seat up seven years ago. Elephants have nothing on women when it comes to memory.

Generally, women are more mentally dexterous than men, able to switch their attention rapidly between multiple things, and men are more connected and fluid in their thinking. We don't need studies and experiments to know that, just observe the speech patterns in male and female groups. Speech patterns reveal thought patterns. Also, look at what men are good at, map reading, building, mechanics. Those things are connected and fluid, requiring spatial and logically progressive thought. And look at what women are good at, talking in groups with each other, each switching attention between several others, sometimes having more than one conversation at once, and they are good at what they call multitasking, they even boast that they are. Those things are disconnected, requiring mental dexterity.
