    Which genetic differences are more significant?

    1) Between the races?


    Or:


    2) Between the sexes?


    So basically, are Europeans and Africans (regardless of gender) more different, or are men and women (regardless of race) more different?


    =====


    For example this guy thinks that Y chromosome makes a big difference and genetic differences are more significant between the genders:


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQcgD5DpVlQ#t=5m27s - the relevant part starts at 5 minutes 27 seconds of the video





    There is also for example this study "The Role of the Y Chromosome in Brain Function" (not sure if there are more recent studies about it):


    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/20396406/


    ^^^ Quote: "In mammals, sex differences are evident in many aspects of brain development, brain function and behaviour."


    I lean to the idea that white men have more in common with black men than they do with white women (who come from Venus, not Mars):


    For example this Black guy from the videos below integrates among Polish men just perfectly:








    Another example when a Black guy thinks more like Polish men, than a Polish woman (journalist):


    There are words which carry the presage of defeat. Defence is such a word. What is the result of an even victorious defence? The next attempt of imposing it to that weaker, defender. The attacker, despite temporary setback, feels the master of situation.

    I think there are more differences between men and women...than differences between our racial make up I mean we really are one race we just have different appearances. Watch papua new guinea men get together and hunt in the woods and its no real difference than watching Alabama red necks get together to do the same The women are also the same there used to be a show called "Meet the Natives" The native women would complain that men are lazy they just want to drink and hunt while the women do all the labor back at the home, I'm pretty sure a lot of modern women would share the same sentiments...

    BTW from my experience among women lesbians and bisexuals have the most male-like brains.

    Well now we are getting into what is male and what is female...there definitely seems to be a difference to me with the classical way of how I think a Man and a Woman think and behave but obviously there are Biological Men who seem to behave and display what I would consider Feminine traits, and vice versa Woman who behave more like Men...I think I'm too old already to really hash this one out, this seems to be something that Western Society is trying to hash out again...every ancient society has a word for people that fall into this spectrum sometimes we are more open and accepting of it other times we try hard to stamp it out...I've never had Gay or Lesbian friends personally and I really do think they make up such a small percentage of our overall society but they do exist as a part of our Human Nature...

    Genetics is the study of hereditary variation in humans. The scientific study of inherited variation is known as human genetics. Mostly all human genetic diversity is physiologically inconsequential, which means it has no evolutionary basis. Some mutations (such as neutral mutations) modify the sequence of amino acids of the resultant protein but do not affect its function. Other variations (such as silent mutations) do not affect the amino acid sequence. Furthermore, coding sequences (sequences that are eventually translated into protein) and regulatory sequences account for just a small fraction of the DNA sequences in the human genome. Differences in the DNA that occur elsewhere—in the overwhelming bulk of the DNA that has no biological role and no bearing on the outcome. Some genetic variety, on the other hand, can be advantageous in changing settings. The sickle hemoglobin mutation, which confers a selective advantage in malaria-endemic areas when heterozygous, is a famous example from high school biology classes.
