Male and Female Behavior Biologically Determined

Male and female behavioral patterns are biological in origin and the “gender neutral” fad is futile against this reality, Debra W. Soh, a sexual neuroscientist at York University in Toronto and writer for the Globe and Mail, Harpers, the Wall Street Journal, Scientific American, the L. A. Times, and Playboy magazine, has said.

In an article published by the L.A. Times—an adventurous newspaper which often breaks ranks with the controlled media—Soh said that “In steadfast pursuit of gender equality and to promote nonconformity,” it had become popular to start “raising young children in a gender-neutral way.”

The article, titled “The futility of gender-neutral parenting,” went on to list these “gender neutral” child-raising patterns as “not revealing the baby’s sex at birth, dressing them and their bedroom in various shades of oatmeal, [and] encouraging them to play with gender-neutral toys.”

There is also pressure on corporations to help, Soh continued, saying that “parental complaints” had led a major U.S. retailer to “stop sex-segregating its toys.”

All this was, however, she pointed out, a waste of time because “the scientific reality is that it’s futile to treat children as blank slates with no predetermined characteristics. Biology matters.”

A large and long-standing body of research literature shows that toy preferences, for example, are innate, not socially constructed or shaped by parental feedback.

Most girls will gravitate toward socially interesting toys, like dolls, that help social and verbal abilities develop. Most boys will gravitate toward toys that are mechanically interesting, like cars and trucks, fostering visuo-spatial skills.

Soh went on to point out that an “immense body of neuroimaging research has shown brain differences between the sexes.”

One study, published in Infant and Child Development (“Preferences for ‘Gender-typed’ Toys in Boys and Girls Aged 9 to 32 Months”) showed that these preferences emerge as early as nine months of age—“before children are developmentally aware that gender differences exist, at around 18 months.”

Soh went on to write that “another piece of evidence comes from studying girls who were exposed to high levels of testosterone prenatally, in the case of a genetic condition called congenital adrenal hyperplasia, or CAH.”

Girls with CAH tend to be gender nonconforming, and will prefer toys that are typical to boys, even when their parents offer more praise for playing with female-typical ones. This speaks to the vital role of hormones in developing gender preferences and sex differences in behavior, more broadly (Prenatal Hormones and Postnatal Socialization by Parents as Determinants of Male-Typical Toy Play in Girls With Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia,” Child Development, 10.1111/j.1467-8624.2005.00843.x).

Furthermore, she continued, an equally “immense body of neuroimaging research has shown brain differences between the sexes.”

One meta-analysis of 126 studies found that men have larger total brain volumes than women (“A meta-analysis of sex differences in human brain structure,” Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews, Volume 39, February 2014).

Men also show greater white matter connectivity running from the front to the back of the brain, while women have more of these connections running between the two hemispheres.

Additionally, when researchers reanalyzed the same brain data from the “no sex differences” study, they found that it was possible to correctly identify whether a given brain was male or female 73 percent of the time.

Soh went on:

I hear from many well-meaning parents who raised their children in gender-neutral homes and were surprised to find that they nevertheless gravitated toward stereotypical interests and toys.

Little boys who were given pots and pans to play with turned them into makeshift toy cars, complete with self-generated engine sounds. Little girls turned to one another and started playing house.

She went on to say that all parents wanted their children to develop to the best of their potential, and should be given all possible opportunities, but “whether your child leans toward gender-atypical traits will likely have more to do with the prenatal environment—testosterone levels in utero—than a perfectly balanced upbringing.

“Besides, so long as children are given the option to take part in activities they find interesting, there’s nothing wrong with being gender-typical,” Soh continued, concluding by saying that “acknowledging inherent sex differences isn’t harmful or sexist; differences don’t necessitate one sex being better than the other.”

It is unusual to find such an honest and factual assessment of biological differences appearing in any of the controlled media outlets, and Soh and the L. A. Times have broken new ground by daring to write and publish this article.

Soh did not, however, go on to take these scientific facts to their logical conclusion, which is that all the “transgender” propaganda is made-up nonsense being imposed on society by mentally-ill people who are also pretending that the biological facts of gender distinction do not exist.

  1. Soh is soooo right !!
    I feel physically sick seeing what some self-centred parents are doing to their kids.
    If they really gave a toss they`d allow the child to develop naturally. When kids are old enough they`ll decide for themselves without prompting. It`s their life after all.

    1. No, she can’t possibly be right. Everyone knows that we are all born into the wrong bodies and that boys should be girls, and girls boys, and that anyone who doesn’t convert gets thrown off a high building. ving eventually seen the light, at Age 67, I’m awaiting my conversion to a blone haired, blue eyed, transvestite camel jockey!

  2. Excellent article. Unfortunately the US
    dummocrats, progressives, leftist liberals
    still will not believe or understand it.

  3. Excellent article, especially the last paragraph. Everyone knows transgenderism isn’t biologically based, but is politically motivated ploy to destroy traditional social norms.

    I’ll also throw one other fact out there that no one talks about, but this piece vaguely touches on. In every living species, brain size is directly connected with intelligence. The larger the brain, the more intelligent the creature. Because Whites have larger brains than Blacks or Mestizos, they are more intelligent with an average IQ of 100 vs. 85, 70 for continental Africa.

    As such, men have larger brains than women and are, in fact, more intelligent, regardless of feminist and Marxist propaganda. This is why women were never allowed to serve in government, take professions or make large scale decisions throughout most of history. This is why the majority of men are more analytical, logical and can reason better than the majority of women. Male brains are wired better front to back for this very purpose.

    Women are much better nurturers, healers, peacemakers, communicators and so on than men. Their brains are wired better from side to side, connecting the hemispheres in a more integrated way. These skills are best served in the family unit and in community efforts. When women see that their gift doesn’t make them weaker or less than men, when they rediscover the real strength of true feminine energy and stop trying to be men, much will come back into balance in the natural order.

    A side note: Interestingly, the only time the male/female level of intelligence changes consistently is when race is involved. For example, the majority of White women will always have a higher IQ than a black or mestizo man. Keep in mind, every measurement is a bell curve, so there will be outliers at either extreme, but 95% will always fall within the average.

  4. Due to the rapid advancement of modern technology, children are swamped with very little that determines who is using it. On social media, it is possible for a boy or girl to present themselves as the other, it may not be true, but it is possible. The days of my youth when “boys will be boys” and “girls were girls doing girlish things” have long gone, more’s the pity.

  5. Why is there even a study on this?

    I could’ve told them when I was 10 what girls & boys do as play & how they will react.

    What next? Breed neutral cats & dogs, with leftists trying to say that its an engineered construct that a dog will attempt to chase a cat?

    These people are mentally ill.

    1. I asked the same question.
      My 7 yr old granddaughter still plays house with her dolls, just as her mother, me, and my mother did.
      To be brought up with parents pushing “gender neutral” anything isnt normal or healthy. Dont they know anything about nature. This whole (((trend))) is sick and shameless.

  6. “Former ‘transsexual’ Alan Finch; ‘You fundamentally can’t change sex…. Transsexualism was invented by psychiatrists.… Giving surgery to someone desperate to change sex is a bit like offering liposuction to an anorexic.’ And it’s only a civilization starved for Truth that would address psychological problems by creating social problems, as it puts boys who fancy they have girls inside of them inside girls’ locker rooms.” The New American 4-14-16

    When it comes to biology, I would not equate behavior with preference. My children all had a broad range of toys to recreate with. Their choices were never interfered with, and they were never forced to wear clothes they did not like. Whatever interests they manifested exceptional ability in were encouraged. They were presented with voluminous social gatherings, both public and familial. They sorted out their preferences in every circumstance. Exposure to television and other sources of propaganda were limited until they reached 7-8 yoa. Especially cartoons. Video games and cell phones with all this social media crap was yet to be invented.

    I once had a discussion about sexual competency with a mother of 12, born in 1923. She told me growing up nobody ever worried about the mechanics of intercourse, nor how to please their mate prior to marriage. She said it didn’t take much intelligence to figure out how it was done, and that pleasure giving was a life-long adventure between spouses, to be learned as they lived life. Most kids knew by the age of 5 what sex they were and how and why copulation took place by that age.

    Once when discussing marital conflict with my grandmother, born in 1895, she brought up the subject of our sex lives. At 81 she understood its place, and we had an interesting discussion about marital felicity. All this has been replaced by public education, social media, and the attendant obsession, paranoia, and anxiety over issues which when I was a young child were as matter of fact in the family as changing diapers. The people who parade these concerns in the public eye are emotionally infantile and hypo-developed.

    None of this BS (obsession, paranoia, and anxiety) is going away until people switch off the boisterous media sources pervading everyday life and spend more of their social activities in natural ways, especially interaction with their ancestors.
