According to the political correctness police, there’s absolutely no difference whatsoever between men and women, and gender is just a social construct. But a new paper published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease begs to differ, making the everyone-would-be-crying-sexist-if-it-favored-men claim that women have “more active brains” than men, at least when it comes to areas of the brain associated with emotion (take that, you evil patriarchy!).
Researchers from the Amen Clinics in Newport Beach, California, say they compared tens of thousands of brain scans from nine different clinics to make this determination. And while news blips citing the study seem to be emphasizing the “more active brains” part about women, what the study actually found – and this is very pertinent with regards to all of the gender madness currently sweeping the Western world – is that the brains of women tend to function much differently than the brains of men.
The prefrontal cortex, on average, appears to be much more active in women than it is in men, the researchers found. This region of the brain is most associated with focus and impulse control. The limbic system, which governs the emotional centers of the brain, is similarly more active in women than it is in men, which would explain why women tend to be moodier and suffer from more anxiety than men.
Meanwhile, men’s brains tend to be more active in the areas of visual processing and coordination, as compared to women who are less adept in this regard. Images of the brains of both sexes taken at rest and while test subjects were performing various cognitive tasks showed clear signs that men are generally more suited to physical and analytical skills, while women are more emotionally driven.
“This is a very important study to help understand gender-based brain differences,” stated lead author Dr. Daniel G. Amen, M.D., psychiatrist and founder of Amen Clinics, Inc.
“The quantifiable differences we identified between men and women are important for understanding gender-based risk for brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. Using functional neuroimaging tools, such as SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography), are essential to developing precision medicine brain treatments in the future.”
All this talk about gender differences is sure to rile up the social justice warriors (SJWs), especially those of the transgender persuasion (and their allies) who insist that there’s no such thing as biological sex. Male and female are completely made up terms and designations, these lunatics claim, and thus it is more preferable for them to abuse the English language by improperly referring to themselves individually using plural pronouns like “they.”
What’s interesting about this latest study is that it was peer-reviewed and published in a reputable journal by some of the same types of people who in other circles might verbally agree with the transgender narrative and the idea that both sexes are identical. You can be sure that many of them likely already do this with regards to anything science-related that would dare to highlight any strengths that men have that women don’t.
Take, for instance, physical strength. It is a matter of fact that men have denser bones, bigger muscles, and are generally much more adept at performing physical tasks than women are. This is a biological fact, but one that is routinely ignored or even ridiculed because the gender psychos would rather pretend that women are equal to men in every way. The only time equality doesn’t apply, of course, is when women are said to be superior to men, in which case it’s a celebration of “girl power.”
