So how accurate is using just the skeletal structure differences to determine male or female? For instance, if you look at Justin Bieber's structure, it is that of a female. And looking at Michelle Obama's structure, it is that of a male.

Just a Few Words About Your "Difference Between Male and Female Skeleton"


I just read your post http://www.majordifferences.com/2014/03/difference-between-male-and-female.html the information mentioned in that article is very nice and useful.

I have seen that there is a word "ischial tuberosity" where there is no enough information there and I would like to bring to your notice that there is a lot of information on same word at http://ehealthhall.com/ischial-tuberosity.html which will be useful to your loyal readers.

What do you think of ? May be you will find place to mention in this post/ Future Writing.
