I appreciate you wanting to dive in deeper.
I should have been more clear. It's testosterone vs vasopressin.
Testosterone in itself is not so much aggression as drive. Vasopressin creates distrust (particularly in other males or non-sexual interests; arousal has a counter effect to the distrust thing).
The two together create driven anti-social behavior; sometimes this comes out as violence... typically it's some form of competitiveness.
I can't preview the pages for free in this book to show you (https://www.amazon.com/Male-Brain-Breakthrough-Understanding-Think/dp/0767927540) but there's a section on vasopressin, and then a fuckload of studies referenced in the appendix.
While nothing will give you all the answers you seek, this book is really interesting.
Explains all about testosterone levels at different ages and why males behave the way they do. I'm not 100% subscribed to it of course but it was a fascinating read. I do agree with your body doing what it's supposed to do provided you have a reasonably healthy lifestyle. i.e. you're supposed to have testosterone decline as you age and testosterone injections aren't necessarily a good idea to fix that.
Unless you have dreams of being Mr. Olympia in your middle age, I think you'll be ok.
Also, the hormonal changes can come with obesity and other health issues that affect more and more men these days - studies like to focus on one thing and ignore so many other factors, the news likes to scare people. In short, you know what to do to maintain a healthy lifestyle, keep that up and it's the best preventive medicine ever!
Go nuts. We're talking about examining actual brain patterns, not how people act.
You know, the should make a 'social science' student run for the hills.
All I'm asking for is one culture where males do not approach problems with a problem-solving mentality. You can't provide one, and you're desperately strugging to come up with some nonsense social theory for why. Trouble is, the answer's already out there; we know that the empathy centers in the male brain don't light up when faced with an emotional problem the way female brains do.
There are detailed answers on this but, fundamentally, our brains are quite different structurally and hormonally, it impacts how we see the world and these differences are then exacerbated culturally (similar to how we all inherently have cravings for like, fast food, for biological reasons that are no longer applicable like food scarcity, but those ancient cravings will be honed in on and triggered, which has created a very successful industry).
For a variety of reasons- many of them biological- men were initially able to take a position of social dominance, and that certainly hasn’t helped relations/mutual understanding, due to the end result of exploitation of the non-dominant class.
If you really want to dive into the brain science underpinnings of fundamental differences, I highly recommend The Male Brain and The Female Brain both by neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine. They are pretty easy reads with concrete examples.

Unfortunately, no we only accept links to the original research article. Datasets are also allowed.
But if you have a book that you would like to recommend please hang on to it because there will be a special thread soliciting book recommendations from users this weekend. So wrong time but right place 😊

I requested this from Reddit some months back, but they denied me.
That's actually why this sub was made.
Never got a reason why from them either (Though I have my suspicions). You could give it a shot.

Your "never being able to be convinced that stereotypes can be used" simply demonstrates your transparent self-delusion and intellectual/scientific bigotry, and not any kind of virtue.
As for transsexuals, they suffer from formal thought disorder; male and female brains are biologically-typed(with brain sex matching genital sex) very early, mostly pre-birth.
Just as we can institutionalize others with formal thought disorders, like florid schizophrenics, there's no reason not to apply the same logic to transsexuals.
