  2. If you click on the list of all nominated words you get it:


    noun the belief that differences between the sexes are fixed in the brain, seen as being sexist in nature and opposed to the belief that such differences are acquired from the culture in which a person is raised.

    [popularised by Canadian-born Australian psychologist, Cordelia Fine (born 1975), in Delusions of Gender: The Real Science Behind Sex Differences (2010)]
    –neurosexist, noun
