Being Human

Jun 7, 2022

Welcome to Episode 77 of the Being Human Podcast: Gender Fluidity or Complementarity? (Part Three)

This week, Dr. Greg begins to wrap up his series on gender and the complementarity of men and women. In this episode, he proposes a definition of “genius” (of a masculine or feminine type) and then breaks open the specific brain differences between men and women that lay a foundation for the particular genius of each. 

Discussed in this episode:

  • Defining what is meant by the feminine or masculine “genius”;
  • How the differences in our brains as male and female give us a natural affinity towards certain skill sets;
  • The unique ways men and women’s bodies and brains order each towards the creation and protection of new life;
  • How the particular gifts of each sex can also lead to particular weaknesses in each, and the specific qualities that men and women need to learn from each other;
  • Ways our complementarity as men and women can lead us to become better versions of ourselves;
  • How masculine and feminine “genius” qualities are above all human qualities meant to be integrated into our personhood;
