Men and women develop differently in many different areas. Men and women process information differently, and studies have shown that there is a physical difference in brain size between heterosexual men, homosexual men, and heterosexual women. All of th ese differences are physical while socialization involves more psychological aspects. There is also evidence that certain behaviors are concentrated within different ethnic groups which can be attributed to certain genes which cause these behaviors.

ABSTRACT: "Preliminary experimental findings suggest that a change of Piaget stage may be related to different developmental processes in boys and girls. At a somewhat later stage, the collaboration between the hemispheres increases."
ABSTRACT: "The role of endogenous hormones in differentiating the sexes is an area of continuing research. The bulk of findings in this field support the notion that mammalian sexual differentiation is primarily mediated by androgens of testicular origin and that the presence of these androgens in early life produces a "male" brain. In contrast, the female brain is thought to develop via a hormonal default mechanism, in the absence of androgen. Findings are reviewed which show that ovarian hormones also play a significant role in sexual differentiation, and that the process of ovarian feminization has a considerably later sensitive period than androgen-mediated masculinization."
