Men Are From Mars…

As far back as we can tell in recorded history, men and women have focused on their differences, and at the end of the day, none of these are so pronounced as the biological.

From these several noticeable differences, humans have divided themselves for centuries in a battle of the sexes, attributing countless unfounded and even offensive traits and “truths” to these external variations. More often than not, these distinctions between the sexes have not worked out in the favor of women, with men claiming to be the stronger, saner gender. Let’s all collectively shake our heads.

As time goes on, science helps us realize that, really, we’re not so dissimilar. Still, we have to wonder, what are some of the fascinating biological differences—aside from the obvious—that make us unique as women and men? As always, Redditors know best.

This means that many of the drugs and chemicals that we put into our bodies are processed very differently between the sexes. I think most people remember from college that males and females process alcohol at different rates, but it also effects things like tylenol, antibiotics, and other more serious drugs.

And yet women have to repeat themselves more…
