I thought the whole problem was that it refused to forsake you ;)

Oh the irony? :D

I shared that video on facebook, after watching it I felt it would be irresponsible not to. Thanks Helm!  :)

It is very possible said genetic differences between genders have been overstated by the scientific community because of their want to further a cultural agenda, be it consciously or subconsciously so.

Not wanting to rain on anyones parade here, but Fine has been criticised for cherry picking, but that does not mean she is not making any good points.

I personally would think that it would be quite naive to suggest that homo-sapiens somehow managed to out-evolve behaviour which seems to be very hardwired in primates and other mammals, and that everything we do in terms of gender is purely cultural. I am not saying nothing is culture, but saying all is culture is unsubstantiated.

I hereby will take a pause from this again, because I generally do not enjoy arguing on the net, but I think we should to and look at things objectively and not get skewed in either direction without looking at the data for ourselves.

Admittedly, homo sapiens has the least amount of gender differences of the great apes, from what I remember.
Humans are still evolving, though in ways that we don't usually notice as we can't observe our past as objectively as we can with other species.
Sexism as a whole might well be a remnant from our ancestry where the social community might well have been somewhat similar to chimps or bonobos (Tyrannical male and stuff). However, this shouldn't be an argument for humans to just give up on equality. After all, we have pissed in the eye of every other "natural" process so far, why not improve on the equality of genders too?

I'm not making much sense, sorry.

I never said give up on equality, I am all for equality. But also let's not deny possible genetic factors and pretend everything is cultural. It clearly is not. We as humans have the benefit that we can generally learn about and control our urges quite well, when it comes to mentally stable individuals.

And just as a thought experiment: Imagine there is in fact some genetical tendency to rape which is stronger in certain men. Would you rather try to look into this scientifically so we can understand it better, or pretend it is all cultural and deny possible scientific findings away?

Who has criticized her for cherry picking? Sources? It's amusing because she criticises others for cherry-picking from their datas.

And even if there's a genetic basis for these things, culturally it doesn't matter because society is not entered on and build upon the foundation of protecting every biological tendency of the human animal.

To your question, of course we must have hard science (or as hard as we can get it) on these things, never turn our eyes away from what it shows.
