"It is a misconception that the differences between
men's and women's brains are small or erratic or found
only in a few extreme cases, Dr. Larry Cahill of the
University of California, Irvine, wrote last year in
Nature Reviews Neuroscience. Widespread regions of the
cortex, the brain's outer layer that performs much of
its higher-level processing, are thicker in women. The
hippocampus, where initial memories are formed,
occupies a larger fraction of the female brain."

and this:

Such experiments do not show the same clear divide
with women. Whether women describe themselves as
straight or lesbian, "Their sexual arousal seems to be
relatively indiscriminate — they get aroused by both
male and female images," Dr. Bailey said. "I'm not
even sure females have a sexual orientation. But they
have sexual preferences. Women are very picky, and
most choose to have sex with men."
