This is a non-exhaustive list of gender differences that disappoint me. I’m sure there are other people that are disappointed by these differences.
Men are more romantic than women
That’s feminine of men and masculine of women.
It’s feminine to be lovesick. Being more prone to lovesickness is something feminine about men.
Men are more heartbroken by breakups
Women bounce back faster.
What would be the evolutionary disadvantage if men bounced back faster?
Monogamy is harder on women
Men are more romantic when committed, women are ore romantic when unfaithful. Isn’t this contrary to Bateman’s principle? Bateman’s principle applies only to viviparous animals, not to egg-laying animals.
Men fall in love faster, women fall out of love faster
Again, masculine of women and feminine of men.
Testosterone makes men less intuitive
Prenatal testosterone especially, though the effect is stronger on women.
And results that say that don’t say anything about estrogen.
Women burn fat more effectively than men
Nothing that I can say right now
Prefrontal cortex is more active in women than in men to a greater degree than other parts of the brain
What’s the evolutionary reason? What would be the evolutionary disadvantage of men with better impulse control? There’s no advantage to total self-control.
Women work harder
That’s masculine of women and un-masculine of men.
Women focus on the future, men focus on the past
Not sure what to say.
Women reach their sexual peak at age 30, and men at age 18
Women are more attractive young, and men are more attractive older. It’s men that should be more sexually active at an old age, and women that should be romantic at a young age.
Women age faster facially
Nothing to add.
Why can’t testosterone be localized like GH peptides like as MGF? What would be the evolutionary disadvantage of localized androgen and estrogen?
I once thought that masculine traits are determined by recessive X-linked genes and dominant Y-linked genes, while feminine traits are determined by dominant X-linked genes.
Maybe we can decrease the number of testosterone receptors the prefrontal cortex and increase the number of estrogen receptors in both the prefrontal cortex and the default mode network in men.
Sadly, XX males are not fertile.
Why not use eugenics and/or gene editing to make gender differences exactly as they are traditionally stereotyped? Edit the Y chromosome to strengthen men, and edit the X chromosome not to weaken women but make them exactly as traditionally stereotyped?
