Gender Based Confessions

The Vatican has put out a new study talking about the confessions of men and women. These are based on a priest who recorded what people confessed over the years by gender.

“Often the most difficult [sin] men face is lust, and then comes gluttony, sloth, wrath, pride, envy, and greed,” Monsignor Giertych told L’Osservatore Romano. “For women, the most dangerous is pride, followed by envy, wrath, lust, gluttony, and lastly, sloth,” he said.”

There is much discussion as to why men and women confess different sins. Do men confess lust because they are conditioned to do so? Do women confess pride because they have insecurity issues? Do drag queens confess lusting after pride?

My question is this: should priests really be writing down what people confess?
