Scientific American: Our Brains See Men as Whole and Women as Parts

Scientific American: Our Brains See Men as Whole and Women as Parts

Interesting round up by Stephanie Pappas and LiveScience about how we view women. 

TL;DR – women viewed as body parts, men viewed as a whole body by men and women. Suggestion this is not biological as the perception is held by both men and women and may be consequence of media given people can be easily trained out of it. 

Gleaned from Clem Ford’s excellent article ‘On being Cleavagely Correct’ which you should also read.
