Switching toys would put an end to sexual sorting. That boys and girls—and men and women—are programmed by evolution to behave differently from one another is now widely accepted. The sensitivity of the question was shown last year by a furore at Harvard University. Even as a proposition for discussion, this is unacceptable to some. Baby blues and pinks In the past, it was assumed that a female was simply a male with hormones, says Tracey Shors, a professor of neuroscience at Rutgers University.
