Gender similarities post banned!

Gender similarities post banned!

There’s a great blog post by psychologist, Justin Lehmiller, here, about how his comments on the genders being more similar than they are different being banned from the Psychology Today facebook page.

Seems like more evidence of the hold that the ‘Mars and Venus’ idea of gender has on the popular (and psychological) imagination. Justin includes reference to a useful recent review papers covering the research that the genders are more similar than different in terms of personality. This is available online here:
