How Our Brains See Men as People and Women as Body Parts

Another great article from Science Daily about how we see men as people and women as body parts. I just wonder what a profound impact it would have on the sex industry if we as a culture were more likely to see women as humans… How Our Brains See Men as People and Women as […]
