The minor theories of development disagree about the origins of gender roles. Two of the theories (psychoanalytic and epigenetic systems) emphasize the power of genetic and biological forces on development. The remaining three theories (learning, cognitive, and sociocultural) emphasize the pervasive influence of family and culture in children's learning of gender patterns.

First decide whether the finding listed below more directly provides evidence in support of the biological argument or the cultural learning argument, and explain your reasoning.
