No surprise. Male hearts, lungs and kidneys are probably the same as those of females as well.

Where differences lay is in culture. Males and females are fanatically brainswashed into adopting set cultural roles (and socially punished if they fail to adopt brainwashing with a smile).

What would be interesting is to see how [adult] male/female brains may differ based on analysis of the hippocampus. That's where differences [if any] would be most likely to show up based on learned behavior, though of course, I'm not a brain science/researcher.
