Here comes a quiz in The Times to tell whether your brain is a lady or a gentleman.
This is moderately interesting. I scored sixteen, which I was quite surprised by. I was a tomboy as a child - climbing trees, getting bucked off ponies - and my old shrink was always telling me that I was too much in touch with my male side. Rather pleased to have it confirmed that I have a girly brain.
Actually, by far the best bit of this entire article is the comments section. Comments on a national newspaper, even a broadsheet, are usually a combination of why-oh-why, world is going to the dogs, complete nutter, raging misogynist, and flat earther. These ones, though, are really funny and informative. Especially interested to hear that in India, S-E-X equals S-I-N; and loved the exceptionally dry remark from Karen in Southend-on-Sea - 'I couldn't be bothered to read the instructions and then gave up in a huff. Does this make me a male?'
