Of course nature caused male and female brains to be different, and of course, depending on individuals, they can be the same or completely opposite that of their own average gender. Things become political when one wonders into the stupid realm of one gender’s brain being superior to another — politicized nonsense. Each average gender brain has its own special advantages.

The way I look at the human mindset (the brain if you so choose) is to see a woman’s brain designed more for local issues and of self and family preservations (ego), and the male mindset designed for broader, big picture issues (intellect).

Since women tend to be focused more on family survival and routine function, their brain is USUALY more narrowly focused for practical reasons, but can become as intellectually, widely focused, as a man’s if they so choose, which in modern times is a lot more likely than with past generations. Yet females aways, on average, maintain a biased advantage for local, family, basic ego function, survival issues.
