Kimmel mentioned, Today, such studies are largely discredited, but we still may read about how males and females use different halves of their brains, or that they use them differently, or that the two halves are differently connected.
In the section of David Buss, he talked about Psychological Sex Differences: Origins Through Sexual Selection. Evolutionary psychology predict that males and females will be the same or similar in all those domains in which the sexes have faced the same or similar adaptive problems. Sexual selection is the casual process of the evolution of characteristics on the basis of reproductive advantage, as opposed to survival advantage.
Strong-sex differences occur reliably in domains closely linked with sex and mating, precisely as predicted by psychological theories based on sexual selection. Within these domains, the psychological sex differences the adaptive problems men and women have faced over human evolutionary history.
Judith Lorber of Believing is Seeing: Biology as Ideology. When the social position of all human beings was believed to be set by natural law or was considered God-given, biology was irrelevant; women and men of different classes all had their assigned places.
