Huh? What I said was that even if there are real changes in lateralization, that will hardly make uploading gender non-neutral. Lateralization is a *trivial* problem compared to getting the synaptic connections right; if you can get the synapses right you will get the lateralization of the brain as a bonus. No need for blue and pink uploading helmets.
