I realize that a lot of the gender differences are societal, but I don't think that it is fair to rule out any scientific differences between males and females.  While male and female represents a dichotomy that doesn't exist considering there are multiple chromosomal combinations, there are still differences.  This article, "Boys' and Girls' Brains Are Different" in Sciencedaily.com  http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/03/080303120346.htm, shows that there are biological differences between male and female brains.  As I stated before, I do not believe that all male and female differences are biological, psychological, or chemical but there are some differences that are not due to society.  I feel that the stereotypes must be based off of reality, as small as that reality might be.
