New Genetic Study: Boys and Girls are Basically Different
February 8, 2007 | Roger F. Gay

Posted on 02/08/2007 12:48:48 PM PST by RogerFGay

More Swedish News (short translated article)

The same gene that in certain circumstances increases the risk of alcoholism and anti-social behavior in boys protects girls from the same dangers and vice versa. This surprising discovery has been reported by a group of Swedish researchers.

Their study of a population of 16-19 year olds, gives new hope for treatment of depression and alcoholism. Lars Oreland, a member of the discovery team told a Swedish newspaper; “I dare say that we are on the verge of a revolution.”

Well, it depends on what part of Holland you live in...
It could conceivably be possible that a boy grew up with "girls" who were the same in every way, except fashion sense.

Reminds me of the cartoon with the little girl and little boy looking into their pants and the girl saying:

"With one if these, I can get as many of those as I want!"

Now watch the various strains of Marxists around the world try to legislate the enactment of scientific applications to "fix" this genetic difference between human males and females, in the embryo, because G-d (Marx) forbid there be any "unequality" in any aspect of human existence. /sarc

More likely the feminists will turn the relativism post-modernism BS propaganda machine (the same one used for global warming) to ultra shriek mode.

Seems like they're telling us that they are different until they become adults, and then they are the same.

No wonder the birth rate in Sweden is declining.

Well yes, but if much of the last Congress is any indication; they're missing the stones to go along with it.

Does this mean that Lawrence Summers gets his job back at Harvard?

Harvard University President to Resign

Tuesday, February 21, 2006

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.  —  is resigning as president of Harvard University at the end of the academic year, the school announced on its Web site Tuesday.

Summers' resignation ends the briefest tenure of any Harvard president since 1862, when Cornelius Felton died after two years in office.

The announcement comes a week before an expected no-confidence vote by the Harvard faculty, who have criticized Summers leadership style and comments about women in science.

I could have told them this for the same amount of money a lot quicker.

Studies are welfare for scientists but making it look like they're doing something for a living.

I guess I'm just out of touch. So you already knew that "the same gene that in certain circumstances increases the risk of alcoholism and anti-social behavior in boys protects girls from the same dangers and vice versa".

It takes genetics and other such tools to tell contemporary scientists what the rest of the world has known all along.
