The study found that boys preferred toys like toy soldiers while girls preferred toys like dolls.
The study further noted that girls are more likely than boys to be influenced by what their parents tell them or what they see on television, while boys stuck to aggressive play, regardless of the toys they were given.
According to the Daily Mail, the study was led by a team of psychologists from the City University London, who compiled evidence collected by researchers across the Western world with some of the data reaching as far back as the 1930s.
“Despite methodological variation in the choice and number of toys offered, context of testing, and age of child, the consistency in finding sex differences in children’s preferences for toys typed to their own gender indicates the strength of this phenomenon and the likelihood that it has a biological origin,” the study said, according to The Mail.
Some might object, saying that lately girls have been reported to occasionally reject domestic toys.
However, according to the study’s research paper, that result has less to do with girls and more to do with the effects of feminism on parents, advertising, and media.
In other words, the study suggests that the girls’ occasional change in behavior is the deviation, rather than some form of “enlightened normal.”
There’s this philosophy that pervades liberal circles. It goes like this, as it has often been asserted to me: “gender is environmental.”
That can mean two things: first, what constitutes gender is instilled in a child by the world around them. Second, that a gender can be a fluid thing.
Well, sorry. No, gender is not fluid. It’s not dictated by environment.
There are, as this study shows, biological constants that dictate parts of human preferences.
That doesn’t mean that your neighbor’s daughter who likes airsoft guns — or the boy who enjoys baking — is wrong in doing so; that’d be silly.
What it does mean is something far more foundational:
Men and women aren’t the same.
