Here are four gender stereotypes that science says are true. (5/12)

  1. Women can't drive: It's not your fault, ladies. It's just that your brains aren't wired to process north-and-south navigational directions as well as the male brain. And studies have also found that the female brain has more trouble orienting itself in three-dimensional spaces. Spaces like . . . you know . . . the real world.
  2. Guys are filthy slobs: The reason your guy can wear the same filthy T-shirt for a week straight is because . . . unlike you ladies . . . he just can't tell it smells like rotting garbage. Physically, there's no difference between the noses of men and women, and they both have the same number of receptors. But women devote a bigger chunk of their brains to processing scents, which gives them a better sense of smell than men.
  3. Women are wimps: This is the point where every woman who's ever lived chimes in to point out that women experience childbirth, which is way more painful than anything a man could ever endure. But that's only because when they're pregnant or have just given birth, women are loaded up with endorphins and a cocktail of other natural chemicals to help them handle the pain. In general, though, women have more pain receptors in their skin, and less of a protein called GIRK2 that affects their pain threshold. In other words, women are bigger wimps . . . but only because they actually experience more pain than men.
  4. Women can't hold their liquor: You probably think it's because women tend to be smaller physically than men, but that's NOT the reason they're lightweights . . . at least not entirely. It has to do with the water-to-fat ratios of their bodies. See, men are made up of about 61% water, while for women it's just 52%. Which may not seem like a big deal, but it's as if every drink a guy has is 9% more watered down than every drink a woman has. And the male liver also produces more of the enzyme that breaks down alcohol, which causes guys to get a buzz slower, and to sober up faster.
