Breaking News: Men & Women Are Different

Yes, I know it’s hard to believe, but a recent study shows that there are substantial differences in the way men’s and women’s brains work. An excerpt:

The male brain secretes less of the powerful primary bonding chemical oxytocin and less of the calming chemical serotonin than the female brain.

So while women find emotional conversations a good way to chill out at the end of the day, the tired male brain needs to zone out all that touchy-feely chatter in order to relax — which is why he wants the remote control to zap through “mindless” sport or action movies.

His brain takes in less sensory detail than a woman’s, so he doesn’t see or even feel the dust and household mess in the same way. Anyhow, the male brain attaches less personal identity to the inside of a home and more to the workplace or the yard — which is why he doesn’t get worked up about housework.

This is best summed up with one small serotonin and oxytocin deprived word: duh.
