Sorry to go all "deep" in this thread without any photoshopping but a few things to remember:
- The examples you gave are behavior differences which are based on both genetic and environmental (socialized) factors and we don't know how much of both.
- There *are* brain differences between men and women but
1) they are very small compared to the similarities between men and women and the differences WITHIN each gender... which makes one wonder why people are so focused on them.
2) everything we experience is stored in our brain. "Things stored in our brain" must be done so by alterations to structures or neural connections or neurochemistry. So we don't know how much of any brain differences are genetic or environmental.
