different size men and women

mynerdrage  asked:

@shoe anon: I usually go for Converse with shoes or Vans (or knock offs, let's be real here) because they're unisex and they look the same, just in different size range, men's or women's. Plus there's so many designs for them on both sides. I have Batmans and Jokers in women's, but they're not gendered.


Once Again, Feminists Ignore the Hormones

I read an article by feminist Nora Caplan-Bricker the other day titled The Idea of a “Male Brain” and a “Female Brain” Is Likely a Myth and found it interesting, not for what it says, but what it lacks. Here’s the crux of the article:

Men and women are equal—and so are the architectures of our brains, according to a new study by neuroscientist Lise Eliot of the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. According to a write-up in Wired, the study was aimed at evaluating the theory that the hippocampus is larger in women than in men; since the hippocampus is the part of the brain associated with memory and emotion, this has been proposed as an explanation for all those feelings ladies tend to have. Eliot and her team analyzed 6,000 MRI scans and found “no significant difference in hippocampal size between men and women.”

This is more than a matter of abstract interest for Eliot, the author of the 2010 book Pink Brain, Blue Brain, about how dubious theories of sex differences in the brain lead us to raise and educate boys and girls differently. She’s devoted years to decrying these kinds of stereotypes and their frustratingly strong grip on the American approach to childrearing.

What this feminist study doesn’t research, and what feminists avoid talking about in any discussion of their gender stereotype trope, is the different effects of gender based hormones on the male and female brain. Estrogen and progesterone cause women to think and feel in different ways than men do. Testosterone causes men to think and feel in different ways than women do.

This is obvious to anyone who values honesty over an agenda.

Feminists continue to promote their “We’re All the Same” myth, but always leave the divergent effects of these biologically undeniable hormones out of the discussion. 

Men and women are different and it’s all about the hormones. If you deny that you are either disingenuous, delusional or mentally deficient. It’s your choice, but you have to choose.

So im a 5'8 and a half 21 year old and my height makes me insecure and miserable because I feel Im short and it really makes me shy. I go everywhere with my head down. I cant look at girls. I dont know how to deal with this. Help. What do i do. :(

Hello, there. I don’t believe your height should continue to be an insecurity for you. Men just like women come in different shapes & sizes. There are plenty of women who’d appreciate you for just the way you are physically. You may think I’m just saying this to be kind since I cannot actually see your appearance but let me explain. Beauty is an opinion, yes there are popular opinions for beauty in today’s society but that doesn’t mean that your beauty cannot be appreciated by someone. I think you should walk with your head up & more confidence because when you believe in yourself more people will believe in you. A good amount of confidence is attractive because it shows that you know what you’re worth without being arrogant. If you’re shy like me try to build relationships online first, as for in person slowly work on being more confident with your body gestures. Eye contact is very important for communication whether it’s for talking to a girl or for a job interview. You building confidence will help you all around. It takes time but I’m sure you’ll be able to eventually achieve this. 💓

I have never gotten a straight answer on this. Fucking everybody puts personal politics before facts on this so I gotta ask. Is there any significant difference between the male brain and the female brain. I'm not talking single digit percentages

This is entirely based on magnetic resonance imaging/MRIs, so there’s no bias here lol

The first difference I can think of is that the male brain is approximately 10%? larger than the female brain (and that percentage is pretty consistent all the way from a very young age to adulthood). Even when the brain sizes are scaled to account for the different body size of men and women, regions (below) within the brain still show some noticeable differences.  

Women have a larger hippocampus (which have estrogen receptors) while men have a larger amygdalae (those have androgen receptors). Both of those receptors are activated by their respective hormones (estrogen and testosterone) which are responsible for the development of secondary sex characteristics, mood changes, etc. 

Women have a bigger caudate nucleus than men. (A structure that aids in cognitive functions, long-term and unconscious memory, and attention.) This could account for the reason why more men are diagnosed with ADHD than women because men have a smaller sized caudate nucleus.

Men have a larger cerebellum than women. The cerebellum is involved with more motor functions and a little bit of cognitive function. This also provides some insight as to why men are more often diagnosed with Autism and ADHD than women.

And then there’s brain connectivity. Women have connectivity from the left to right hemispheres which make them more inclined to better communication and intuition while men have better connectivity from the front to back which is more inclined towards concrete and coordinated actions. Male/Female brain connectivity also suggests that men are likely better at learning and preforming a single task at once while women are better at multitasking.

If women are equal to men like feminists like to claim, why should there be a harsher punishment for hitting a woman?

Because women are physically weaker lets put it this way if Serena Williams punched Michael Cera it would be a big deal because Michael Cera is much physically weaker. When an NFL played punches his wife so hard she knocks the fuck out it’s a big god damn deal it’s a fucking size difference. Most men are capable of killing most women with one punch that’s the truth and it’s totally fucked but it’s real and if you wanna say “HA SEE THATS PROFF MEN AND WOMEN ARENT EQUAL!!” Then you’re probably a huge piece of shit who misses the point of equality completely
