The idea that males and females are dramatically different from each other for reasons other than arbitrary social ones (bros lift, women wear flowing clothing) is an idea propegated by social ignorance and the fact that some of you are on decade long dry spells or in abusive relationships. It's true that many men and women will act like different species, but I have to stress that in an environment without the ridiculous pressures to meet a stereotype, they are both human.
This was a PSA, I guess. You're welcome, nerds. Please make use of this information when dealing with the opposite sex.
Oh, and gender dysphoria is not a biologically understood disorder if depression, anxiety disorders, and schizophrenia are not yet. This is something they've come up to justify a pretend game that is very close to their identity and thier hearts/souls.
You can be whatever you want, without permission.
Men and women are different, period. Women give birth to kids, and have been the caretaker of children for thousands of years (because of a need to keep them close for breastfeeding). Men are stronger and have traditionally, for thousands of years been the physical protectors. If you deny the impact this has had on the differentiation between the sexes you are ignorant.
TL;DR: There has never once in history existed an: "environment without the ridiculous pressures to meet a stereotype".
To give a more concrete example, I recently moved from a rural area to an internationally respected area. One thing I noticed was that men and women were talking to each other in the same way, as if they were professionals, but even in the most casual or downright lewd circumstances. The only sexual difference in behavior I noticed was a mentally disabled males tendency towards physical violence and an insecure woman's tendency to speak in a "cutesy" voice. Everyone else who modified how they were talking to each other based on sex was flirting. Every awkward moment with a homosexual person or trans person was due to the fact they felt vulnerable for it and open to social criticism.
>People talk to each other in non-mating situations the same
>this is proof that men and women are exactly the same!
Your science is nobel-worthy.
There's years and years and pages upon pages of research that concretely proves you wrong. And it's done by scientists. Male and female. But I'm sure your troll science is way better though.
Don't talk about science while your ass is inflamed. I said that they are largely the same and both the same species, same as applies to every person. Reading comprehension. I don't know where the second guy read that different sexes of the same species have few if any similarities, but I suggest he gets his head checked.
>what is estrogen
>what is testosterone
We are also largely the same DNA wise as apes and share at least 50% dna with plants.
If you are a man and you think men and women are "largely the same" you've never spent time around women. If you are a woman, you are trying too hard.
Male and female brains are different as well. Men have more grey matter, women have more white matter. Distribution of chemicals in the brain is different also, and women use both hemispheres together more often and men use specific hemispheres more often.
The only time we're the same is when we're in the womb and once the sex hormones start in, we quickly become different.
Male and female are not "social constructs" dumb feminist. That's how we are classified by our genitals, if you are not able to see the difference between a dick and a vagina you are an idiot or worse...a virgin.
Male and female are different biologically that's what pushes our race forward and a simple google search out of feminist "research" will prove it to you.
Again, not an actual argument.
I'm sorry you are not in a place emotionally to receive my very simple op without distorting it into feminist psiedo science. It appears you did not understand my reply either. This is my last attempt to try and convey anything to you.
my point was that he is making me out to be saying something I am not, by replying to said distorted version of my statement in order to trump my original undistorted statement. I thought that was a strawman, but philosophical terminology is useless here and will just send us on a tangent critiquing every minute detail of every element of the conversation instead of actually having it.
What's the point in addressing an argument that is in reply to something I didn't originally state?
Oh you have me doing it, wasting my time. Well, at least I'm not paying thousands for it.
I think they are different. women and men often have a different humour. they are attracted to different things in regards to sex and interest. You can't talk about the same shit to women. Women are often like "WTF" when they hear me and guy friends talk. Even if the difference is determined by our cultue, this information still can't be applied to real life because people would be brainwashed.
