Guess what, people treat babies differently based on whether they're 
perceived as girls or as boys, so of COURSE they are going to respond 
differently!

The left end of the achievement curve isn't 'invisible' housewives.  It's

the women who are in jail.  And there are far, far fewer female criminals -
of all types - then men.

As for 'early conditioning', male and female infants respond differently to
faces on the very first day of life.  It's difficult to see how
socialization could be responsible for that.
