Professor Marlene Zuk: Inherent - Genes, behaviour, and demolishing the nature-nurture boundary

People commonly, but mistakenly, think of genes as dictating our makeup, our physiology and even our actions. Many attempts to explain behavioural patterns use “inherent” differences as an excuse, perhaps particularly when it comes to gender and the way men and women behave. But we can’t point the finger at biology to account for complex gender differences.
