In the somewhat overly political-correct age and society in which we live today, it is dangerous for anyone to make statements that imply how people are different from each other even though we are all equal in our rights and freedoms, or at least should be in a perfect world.
One such case is when it comes to gender and the obvious differences between men and women that some people usually ignore for whatever reason. After taking into account various scientific studies and characteristics of the two sexes, we present 25 differences between the sexes that are very real no matter how hard one tries to ignore them or pretend they don’t exist.
Gray Matter and White Matter
The Frontal Lobe
Women can withstand higher temperatures than men because their metabolism slows down less.
Neurological and Genetic Differences
Men use humor as a weapon often to attract females whereas women rarely even try to be funny, which is the main reason why many men think women have no sense of humor at all.
Sex differences in suicide have been shown to be significant; there are highly asymmetric rates of attempted and completed suicide between males and females. The gap, also called the gender paradox of suicidal behavior, can vary significantly among countries.
Statistics indicate that males die much more often by means of suicide than females; however, reported suicide attempts are three times more common among females than males. This paradox is due to the weapon of choice, with females more often using pills and males more often turning to guns, high-rise buildings, or knives.
Men have higher basal metabolism than women.
