Mars, Venus, stupid research, seeing what we want to see

For your Tuesday morning reading pleasure, two headdeskers, and a rational response.
The dead tree version of the Dom Post has an article about how men are naturally aggressive , and this has helped man [sic] to progress through history. You can read the on-line version at the Telegraph, where the subbing is marginally less tendentious: Male sex drive to blame for world’s conflicts.
It goes nicely with a piece from Psychology Today: Gender differences in personality are larger than previously thought.
There’s a response to the latter piece of “research” at Scientific American: Get over it: men and women are from the same planet.
