The article does an okay job explaining this but the title of the post is misleading. It’s not genes (i.e., the alleles males /females have) but how certain genes are regulated. Gene regulation is a multilevel process. The article explains this fine. The title of the post makes it seems like males and females have different genes or alleles that result in depression.

No. There is loads of evidence of H. erectus and other earlier members of genus Homo making it to Indonesia and surrounding islands as you state (see: Trinil, Sangiran, H. floresiensis, etc.). However, there are no evidence of hominins other than H. sapiens found in Australia.

Keep in mind that Australia was not attached to mainland Eurasia. There were periods of time when Indonesia was accessible by foot. There is no evidence that H. erectus made boats.
