Michael G. Conner, Psy.D, a clinical and medical psychologist put together a “collection of research conclusions and observations which [he] witnessed over 5 years… The real purpose [was] to increase the awareness between men and women, and to help them set aside issues that are not personal but are merely manifestations of nature.”

Conner goes on to say that over the years “men and women were socially defined and distorted through a lens of sexism”. He says that “men and women are equal but different”. He asserts that “none of us would argue the fact that men and women are physically different”. He explains in terms of body strength, muscle, thicker skin, efficiency, conversation, and even psychologically.

In August of 2007 Louann Brizendine wrote the book, The Female Brain”. In her work she explains why women are more verbal than men, why women remember details and tend to form deeper bonds with their female reminds than men do with their friends.

Amber Hensley, in an online article wrote “10 Big Differences between Men’s and Women’s Brains.” According to her analysis women communicate more effectively than men. Men process better in the left hemisphere while women can vacillate between both hemispheres. Men tend to have a “fight or flight” response to stress while women want to “tend and befriend”. Women tend to struggle in spacial ability while men are able to mentally represent a shape and it’s dynamic. Men and women according to Hensley approach the two hemispheres of the brain differently.

The Huffington Post, an online blog has had several authors writing about the differences of men and women. Those differences entailed everything from “What Women Wish Men Knew About Sex”, “Why Men are Moodier Than Women”, “The Changing Face of Women Consumers”, “Marketing to Women”, “Why Do Women Want Men To Change?”, “The Real Difference Between Men and Women At Work”, “Gender Differences” and others similar articles.

Simply put, men and women are different.

The Bible is clear about God’s creation of the human being: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Genesis 1:27.

Accepting who God created you to be is part of God’s work in you. You have the parents whom he selected. You were placed on this earth at a certain time in history. You have a specific ethnic background and you’re male or female and all for the glory of God.
