Packing heat...and bras

You use a duffel bag, he relies on a garment bag. Can the relationship survive?

That question might cross your mind upon reading this guy's blog post, "Men pack for Mars, women pack for Venus."

The central message?

Some people think men and women pack for vacation differently. Men apparently "tend to group types of clothing, and women are more likely to group outfits."

While a Jezebel writer questions the conclusion's accuracy, I can't help questioning its significance.

We can find gender differences in a variety of daily activities, ranging from packing a suitcase to showering. But do those differences always indicate some deeper life truth?
