Yes, I said that the female mind (and brain) is structured differently. At no point did I use the word "inferior".

I wasn't attacking your particular argument at all, in fact it was actually this post that really got me on this train of thought. I do think it's a fairly common opinion held by a lot of men, though.

Likewise, the brain provides a space in which the mind can work, and the mind can change the chemical properties of the brain.

There is some evidence to say that the brain is not actually required for the mind to operate. People have reported having NDEs (Near Death Experience) even when their EEG was flat line.

I think any study concluding that measured statistical differences between men and women's cognitive ability implies that the minds work differently is hardly scientific. It could still very easily be explained by conditioning of the tested subjects.
