Can We Make Boys and Girls Alike?

Stanley Kurtz has written an interesting article on gender differences and why the radical feminist quest to androgynize society is doomed. It can however do great harm. I find that this quest is not only impossible, but undesirable as well. Gender differences are a good thing. That doesn't mean we shouldn't aspire to be fair, and let any individual who wants to engage in an activity or a career do so if they are capable, but we shouldn't try to force them, or necessarily make sure that the sexes, or even different cultural groups, are proportionately represented in all walks of life. Different people like different things for lots of reasons, and that is a good thing from my point of view. The article as a whole is fascinating though, with some interesting facts I didn't know about the Jewish Kibbutz movements experiments in radical gender realignment.
