Quote on gender

The following quote from artist Caroline Eleanor Absher on gender is too good not to pass on:

I do believe men and women are wired differently. Women can’t help but see the world from the perspective of someone who can add a human being into it. Even if a woman doesn’t want children of her own, she is programmed to habitually nurture in a way that men often overlook/ take for granted. Modernity hasn’t quite knocked the mama bear out of us yet. It’s a chronic awareness. I am constantly thinking things like, “what if my babies exist in a world without polar bears?”
