- Jan 2 1:20 PMI still tend to agree with Horgan's conclusion that the natural biology is fine, the distortions are cultural aberrations.Another interesting analysis:
The non-binary brain
Misogynists are fascinated by the idea that human brains are biologically male or female. But they’ve got the science wrong.

https://aeon.co/essays/why-its-so-unhelpful-to-talk-about-the-male-or-female-brainIt seems to me that, from the "apple" story and the origins of the patriarchal curse in Genesis, to the current social and ecological crisis, the "binary" has done much harm, and recognizing the "mosaic" is becoming increasingly critical for human development and ecological sanity.This is another good reference:How Gender Shapes the World

Patriarchal complementarianism is bad.Luis---------- Forwarded message ----------

Subject: Genesis 3:16 and the ecological crisis
To: gaiapc@..., TGC <email@example.com>Fascinating, see Genesis 3:16. I think that this cultural disorder, which was latent but became exacerbated by the energy surplus of fossil fuels, is the primary root of the ecological crisis:Do Women Want to be Oppressed?
Evolutionary theorists propose that female desire for domineering males helped create a patriarchal world.
