I question his theory.
I know this much: I don't need any "gender socialization" to enjoy control and mastery. And from what I've observed, most women don't appear to need "gender socialization" to enjoy empathy and care.
So I hypothesis that those are natural tendencies. This hasn't been tested? I'll bet that the major aspects of my hypothesis have been tested sometime in the last century. The whole nature vs nurture debate has been simmering for a long time.
Also of note...
This might be the first *PRO* global warming article posted on this forum.
I still love how the global warming people talk and talk about "scientific consensus". Science isn't about "consensus"; science is about facts and theory. Opinion, which "consensus" is, is irrelevant when it comes to science.
So, by ignoring non-scientific arguments like "consensus", it appears that men might be, on average, more "scientifically literate" than women after all.
Of course, you can't say THAT, or you might be "gender biased". No no no no no. But claiming women are more scientifically literate then men would NOT be "gender biased".... why, it might even be "enlightened". Ah, the PC double-standard in action again.
