A recent scientific study charted the way that male and female brains work. If you're looking at a brain from a bird's eye view, the nerve connections in male brains are more vertical, whereas the nerve connections in female brains are more horizontal. As a result, women are better at doing things which require both brain hemispheres (like emotional recognition), while men are better at doing things which focus on one brain hemisphere (like picturing 3D models).
Some of my friends overreacted to this news story. They say it is an attack on feminism, because it shows that men and women aren't 100% the same. Other friends of mine thought it was humorous.
I think this topic came up, when I discussed how the Catholic Church doesn't have the power to confer priesthood on women. Men and women should be treated equally, but that doesn't change the fact that men and women are different from each other. People will probably argue about how great the difference between the two genders is, for a long time to come.
Thoughts on the new scientific study and the consequences thereof?
