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!"

They sweat less too and don't fart as loud.

Many a college kid returns home to patronize their elders with what they think is divine knowledge.

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
