    Did you read the link I posted?

    "He (Michael Gurian) believes there are about a hundred structural differences that have been identified between the male and female brain."

    It makes perfect sense to me for evolution to have favored slightly more specialized minds for each gender.

    What is wrong with you? Bats are not blind in fact they have better vision then Humans and can see color (If I remember the article right). Look up Bat Conservation International Online hopefully the site will dispell all your mis-beliefs.
    Or if you want I can copy the article and mail it to you.

    I don't think it's a matter of opinion that those differences exist (so they're not myths). Where the opinion comes in is in determining what the cause for those differences is (I think it's both biology and culture... all intertwined) and if those differences make a difference (lol that's sounds funny). to acknowledge that those differences exist doesn't make you sexist, it's when you start to say all fe/males are like that or when you make one better than the other.
    Just like saying that the average american is wealthier than the average ethiopian doesn't make you racist (or... whatever that would make you... is there even a word?) because it's just a fact. it's how you interpret those facts that makes you racist/sexist/etc.

    witches are no myths... (lol... ok fine the fictional ones about crazy old women flying on brooms are but there is a religion where they're called witches)
    and vampiers aren't either... (again... the living dead are but the central american species that lap blood aren't. There are only three species of vampire bats in the whole world and they only live in Mexico and central america)... and if you consider any organism that sucks blood a vampire, there are also those finches in the galapagos, mosquitoes, fleas, lice, bed bugs, leeches, etc.
