Do you really think that a thread made for awareness, information and support is the place for a comment of that nature? It's extremely innappropriate, and unexpected from someone who supposedly has respect for those experiencing mental disorders.
Are you claimin that there are not notable socioloical and neuroloical differences between makes and females? No one is saying one is better than the other, this is just a generalization about behavior in one context. It's not a value judgement, it's an observation.Fun fun, I will illustrate how stupid and gender bias that article was by replacing "girls" with "Asians" and "boys" with "Negroes". Amusingly, in "multicultural" classes, you will learn about the quiet, collective, Asian and the substitution makes for a good one.
The guy who wrote that is a black and white thinker, and/or he's "white knighting" females.
...Um... WTF is up with you all the sudden? I'm done talking to you until you can do so rationally and respectfully - and actually read what I write, and address my questions and points.My response was completely related in that it provided a behavioral explanation for what the moronic Mr. Attwood described.
To address your question, after reading what he wrote, I conclude that's I'm more objective than he is on the topic, if this is what he currently thinks. Honestly, you have to get real, this guy may not have had any field experience with anyone. Whatever the case, he's got a very limited view of males and females.
As I mentioned, boys are the prime creative movers in society and invented every creative thing in the world. Girls largely immitate what boys already invented.
The amazingly great Englishman William Wilberforce invented the first:

...and he was a heterosexual.
It's pure BS that boys are this and girls are that, because at the least, boys are EVERYTHING. They aren't just interested in "trains", which is so dumb at humiliate that idiot if I ever saw him speak.
Anyway, having a faulty premise ruins all subsequent argument.
I don't believe that you have any graduate degree, much less in anything related to the field of psychology.
