Confirmed: Women Talk More Because Of A Special 'Language Protein' February 21, 2013

We'll bet that you have never heard of the Foxp2 protein.

Well, guess what? Women have more of it. And that's why they can't shut up.

We're getting this information second-hand from The Daily Telegraph. And, we have to admit, that this paragraph caught us off-guard:

The research, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, found that higher levels [of Foxp2] were found among humans that were women but in rats they were males.

Huh? They studied human females but for male models they used rats?

Doesn't that just forward the stereotype.
