Interesting piece. The unfortunate upshot of all this genetic tinkering is that in a century or two we will end up as a species of clones.

Quite possibly. The things science can and will be able to do, some of it is a little unsettling.

The brain is still one of the least understood organs as far as I know, its a tricky thing to figure out for science it seems.

Yes, despite massive advances, very early stages for understanding the brain. Look up "connectome" for some more insight.

How can you tell the difference between a male chromosome and a female one?

You take the genes off

Check out Robert Sapolsky's lectures (look out for the depression lecture, I don't think it's in the playlist):

A fun starting point is this one, regarding his position on the "biological underpinnings of religiosity":
