Vatican finds that men and women are prone to different sins.

What I find amusing is that, in the Middle Ages, lust was considered pre-eminently a female sin. Yep, all women were positively on fire, just waiting to tempt those poor celibate monks and priests into damnation. In anthropomorphizations of the Seven Deadlies, Lust is often female when the others are all male.

Today? It's the guys who have the lust problem, and pride is the chief female sin.

A change in perception, in fact, in both or in neither? Who knows.
