Yeah is funny, I should have followed my own advice, I just drink glass of cool water now I see what you were asking.
Yeah I should read them all, It was foolish I made a mistake and lost It. You can excuse me right? We all make mistakes.
Since the beginig I was a little inconex to say the least. I should have been able to suport my argument well, yet I didnt.
Lets try once again. The first article was about how sex refers to the sexual body and Gender to the cultural caracterisation. Diferent sexes exist because of the nature of sexual reproduction, man and woman are marked by a single cromosome that determines this difference Right?
Well It happens that researches in neurology have found that the extension of the sex difference extends to the way the brain functions. Brain works different for both sexes.
"Continuous visuospatial navigation in familiar and unfamiliar environments is a requirement of daily life." to study this function scientist relized experiments with navegations through 3d Mazes. They observed brain regions that were activated exclusively by the male or by the female group of test subjects.
Woman and Men brains are different, with this I think the main point is partially covered.
When I implied that both genders werent completly equals I made two mistakes, I said Genders when I should have said sexes and I forgot what equals meaned. Sex equality is out of the question, I shold have said they are not "the same".
There are many branches of feminism, before "The Second Sex" there were other works that said the "woman" was a despicable condition into were some subjects were throw by discrimination against their bodies. The fact that the existence of "something" femenine was taken as something that came from men not something someone could own.
Modern femisim tried to adress the difference as a source of identity, correct me If Im wrong
Society has Male as the standard, so there were XVIII century intelectuals that thought "Woman" was just a deviation of the standard. So equality then was that the woman was more like men (the standard). This old view still exist on society as people we should not care about gender when hiring people etc. Based in a false equivalence that set subconsiously the fact that there is a standard (that has been made modeled as a male) sexism is made by failing to recognise the woman.
How does biology fits in this? By showing the differences of ways of thinking, different biology goes to form a diferent cognitive aproach, that brings diversity. Ultimately both sexes work different but that is not what defines gender, We can agree that most women have basic treats like having breast or having her menstrual cycle, gender interact with biology in how subjects interact with their bodies.
Other evidence that men and women are different can be found in the hypothalamus that differs from men to woman and Is thought is related also to sexual orientation. Brain atrophy also vary, men have more problems with brain atrophy while aging than women.
The issue of the biological body and how you adress that body is a comon trope on some writers, the phrase "writing with the body" is comonly found in the work of feminists like Julia Kristeva. The body is a part of the equation followed by the culture that determines how a body can be adressed, both things are featured on the so called "women's writing" thats It the political/cultural implications of biology.
Thats what I can say without bringing quotes and stuff, hey I bet you write some nonsense in your essays some times so forgive me If I got tangled on an internet site
