This chapter focuses on those bodily details that are cognitively filtered out of our perceptions or eliminated through polarizing display practices. It presents evidence that “male” and “female” bodies are proportionately more similar than different, but that we are socialized to be blind to sex sameness.

Keywords:   perceptions, male bodies, female bodies, sex difference
