Posts like these bother me, I have to admit. They're generalizations, and it's not a good idea to make great big assumptions on something we still know so little about. I didn't know I was empathic until a few years ago. It never occurred to me that there are more females. I would tread cautiously before making a blanket statement like this.
I agree with your concept, but differently. Many if not most people agree with females being more in tune to their empathic side or accepting it, but let me tell you why i think this happens, and why i don't see it as a blanket statement. It simply comes from how gender roles have been for centuries and how females have to bear and take care of children, so they have to be naturally in tune with the emotional needs of the other, and there's even the maternal/nursing instinct in there. Guys haven't been traditionally encouraged to polish these attributes, and might've been seen as weaknesses among their peers when shown.
At the core, I strongly believe most of us are born fully able to become balanced empaths or intuitive thinkers, with 0 differentiation between male or female. And if I am not mistaken about sensibility (in my mind empathy, being psychic... they go hand in hand, like the majority of these abilities), there have been both male and female names to go down history as great people-healers.
