If you're actually ignorant as to that, you probably shouldn't be commenting on how to alter study for the sexes. But, to give you a small push, male and female brains are structurally and hormonally different.

But, I suspect you already know this as "brains and" were the only words you elided. Unless, of course, you don't understand that emotions are based in the brain.

False analogy. There's a huge difference between a personal assistant, who by definition *I* know personally, and a faceless business entity who I know not at all (read adversarial entity) scraping 'enough' information about me to presume it knows me sufficiently to second guess what I want and give me that instead of what I requested. Truthfully, why on earth would I trust such an entity?

That's the problem with hypotheticals. They don't reflect the reality we live in.
