Default Men & Women's interests.

I think alot of it is because of the tribal nature of politics. It's not that men are generally more interested in a wider range (Or should I say different?) of topics, it's that men are more drawn to the adversarial aspects of politics that are making sure the other side doesn't "win". I wonder if the differences you perceive are not as evident in a parliamentary system that has less group identification (At least that is how it felt to me).

I have a hard time believing people (even the highly educated) have a wide enough base of knowledge to really care as much as they seem to on such a wide variety of subjects. Or who knows, maybe it just seems that way because I am especially ignorant.

I am a guy btw.

Edit:
Ah, I see Me&TheBoys already said it. I guess that's what I get for randomly selecting posts to read.
