5.0 out of 5 stars Fearlessly debunks modern myths, May 31, 1999
This review is from: Brain Sex: The Real Difference Between Men and Women (Paperback)
It may not be politically 'correct', but this book shows us men and women really are different. Physically this is obvious for all to see. Psychologically it has also been obvious for all to see for the last few million years.
However in the last 30 years we have had a justified push for equality of all humans regardless of sex, sexual preference, race, belief, etc. In the process modern society has clouded the innate differences between males and females. And some put shutters over their eyes to make the facts fit their preconceived view of the world.
Brain Sex shows how we are all equal but we are also different. It shows how we can begin to try to understand each other and to complement each other. That is real equality.
A fantastic book, but it must be read with an open mind.

"However in the last 30 years we have had a justified push for equality of all humans regardless of sex, sexual preference, race, belief, etc." NOT!!!

We have had a justified push for equal opportunity and for equal treatment based on demonstrated ability rather than assuming that someone becasue of race, gender, etc. cannot do the job. Big difference.

Thomas Jefferson wrote:
All men are created equal (due to culture at the time, the term "men" was used to refer to people"
They are endowed by their creator with inalienable rights.
That among these, are
Life
Liberty
And the pursuit of happiness.

Note that he did not say they are entitled to happiness. They are only entitled to try to get it. Nothing more, nothing less.

That is what civil rights efforts and movements have all been about. Inalienable rights and the pursuit of happiness.

M. Romero says:
you missed the point he tried to make. We are different, we should embrace that instead of trying to make everyone the same. Religion, race, gender...etc all of this thing has an effect on our choices and preferences. Equality should mean equal opportunity not equal number of men, women, and races in an industry.

Mr Maher is confusing sociology with biology - the stark biological differences between men and women (or would you rather I said women and men?) should never have an input into and justification for any social bias and unfairness.
