    Gender differences and I say sexuality/sexual preferences: all in the brain and the mind.



    What all this adds up to, she says, is neurosexism. It’s all in the brain.
    But Dr. Fine persuasively argues that it is, in fact, all in the mind. Jan Morris, the historian, travel writer and male-to-female transsexual, saw this implicit stereotyping firsthand: “The more I was treated as a woman, the more woman I became. ”
