    I’ve always found the question of what (if any) qualities divide on the basis of sex interesting but elusive. I assume you’re thinking about femininity and masculinity. If we think of those as straightforwardly corresponding to receptivity vs self assertion then that would pretty much align with right vs left hemispheric functioning. But it is no less necessary for a woman to be receptive toward the gifts of the right hemisphere than for a man. Likewise both then need to be industrious in elaborating the ‘maps’ which can then be further processed by the right hemisphere allowing for better understanding.

    I’m not sure the traditional femininity vs masculinity distinction does as much work as it did when traditional sexual roles were more distinct, common and generally agreed upon But I look forward to being shown what I’m missing.
