The idea that men and women's brains are hardwired in different ways is nonsense, a leading scientist has said. Eminent brain expert Professor Gina Rippon said the pop-psychology theory that the sexes are as different as alien races - Men from Mars and Women from Venus - is a delusion driven by sexist prejudice. Instead, the Aston University neuroscientist believes that any differences are created by social norms. Speaking in advance of a lecture at the British Science Festival, which is due to take place in Swansea next month, Professor Rippon said: 'The latest evidence shows that we are all part of a spectrum, so dividing us into binary categories gives misleading results. 'I will be discussing new evidence that our brains and behaviour are mosaics of different characteristics and there is no such thing as a male or female brain.'
More mothers should get involved in celebrity boyfriend advocacy work. Just look at what Sally Field has been able to accomplish for her son in a short amount of time.

Look at the happy not-yet-probably-won't-happen couple.
