Did it also improve their parking skills?

Didn't work for Bruce Jenner. Oh, wait -- he went backwards.

Hey, some women can park really well. I can't park a trailer to save the universe. My xwife would back a semi-truck up in figure eights and park it in fucked up places. She did the camper parking. WTF is that about because I could drive circles around her going forward.

They didn't navigate better, in terms of completing tasks, but they used their brains differently. So men and women have different brains, and use them differently too. Why is equal numbers of men and women in any given field the gold standard for equality when we are different?

I bet this research doesn't get shared as much as the one about women and men "having the same brain" (even though the data actually said the opposite).

Two identical thing being used differently won't always produce the same results. The world is built on results, not intentions.

Other studies have shown men and women have different brains. The size overall, and the size of regions, is strongly gendered.

To hijack your comment, if anyone read the actual paper, it's also a HILARIOUSLY small sample size. I mean 40 women? Really? Where 1/2 were control? That's nothing. I so hate when people overblow the results of a small discovery thanks to an over-editorialized title.

At what point will it be considered sexist to point out empirical differences between men and women? It's the problem "race" studies have traditionally encountered. At some point or another the SJWs are going to shut it down.

They didn't mean to, they just went to the wrong place.

This has been known for a while. People who got sex changes were studied, and female to male were much better at navigation and knowing NESW

Hey, can you dig up a source for that? My wife and I were literally just discussing that a study like that would interesting.

I can't and that sucks :/ In the last year I've started saving PDFs of all studies I find interesting in my google drive as they seem to disappear...

That's racist against women.

Not sure if serious...

Just in case you are: women aren't a race.
