67. Yes, but is the gender difference really due to biology?

Or societal conditioning?

Cats are bombarded daily with thousands of messages through the Patriarchal media. Cats are given gender-specific names and, often, forced to wear undignified collars with, many times, pink or blue depending on their sex.



Cats are well-known consumers of Cable TV, according to some research making up at least 70% of the viewing demographic on such popular shows as "Terra Nova", "Kim's Fairytale Wedding, A Kardashian Event" and "The Wealth Channel Presents a half hour of Dancing Red Laser Dots, Shiny bits of tin foil, and succulent cubes of Tuna in HD".

This has been confirmed repeatedly by numerous independent studies.

All this media programming has an effect on the impressionable feline mind - it MUST! By the time a cat is old enough to hide in the linen closet for 3 long, urine-soaked-towel days, his or her brain has been thoroughly saturated with pernicious messages about expected gender roles.

For cats.

So don't fall for that evo-psych nonsense about how "male cats are more likely to do risky things than female cats"!
