Not to make any overinterpretations, but when someone starts to say that there's a masculine (or male) and a female way of doing things-- and the things are of a certain sort-- I think it's a fair assumption, in the absence of some obvious clue-- that invidious comparisons of some sort are being made-- and even when being female is better-- it's usually at something you'd never want to be known for being that good at-- like boring repetitive tasks, or something.

Even multitasking-- oh-- you can do a million things at once-- of course you're not that good at any of them-- and men are better at doing any one thing-- ya know-- cause the corpus callosum in men has less white matter or whatever- and is smaller-- and so they do specialized stuff really well-- and women can just kind do lots of whatever-- whenever.

I could be wrong-- it's just my possibly crabbed take on this type of comment-- and if I"m uncivil to anyone in saying so, I apologize-- but I'm a bit of a lunative fringer on the subject. That's my position and I'm sticking to it.
