Three Interesting Things: The Gender Edition

1. People appeared quite shocked to discover a popular science blog was written by a girl!  Another science blogger shows why this confusion makes perfect sense to real scientists.
2. I found this article about women and pain interesting as it looks at both the issues with prescribing things that are tested on men and the perceptions held about female pain tolerance when doctors make medical decisions. (I shall not even speak of how long I've been reading about the gender disparity in medical testing.)
3. And in some intriguing synchronicity I ran across this article from a person transitioning from female to male and the changes in perception they found not too long after I was pointed to this post from a person who transitioned from male to female and also discovered some changes once perceived as female.
