Lmao, naa. Chauvinism, regardless if it is male or female just ticks me off. It is like a childish ignorance that just makes the world a more messed up place. I can understand deference to those you care about, but chauvinism in a general sense makes my blood boil(which is a bad thing). So I acted in a hot-headed fashion and made an arse out of myself by posting a billion times.

As for endurance, it is more in the soul of an individual. A matter of personnel will power. Some of the examples of women doing extreme thing's one could argue women are capable of copying those successes. But when it is all said and done those are individual triumph's; results of individual will. Not accomplishments of any particular group, gender or race.

By trying to take someone else's accomplishments just because they have the same race/gender that the person trying to use them has, only displays a pathetic inferiority complex. Someone that takes their internal problems and projects them outwards for everyone else to deal with.

I wouldn't be surprised if the OP has lousy endurance or some kind of competition fear that he/she needs to get over. I guess in the long and short of it we are all just points of perspectives in space/time. But some of those points, dot's really really annoy me....

This extensive test proves that per their size women are indeed faster at endurance running and sprinting than men. Why all the big talk from guys about how great they are? A man of equal height can't out run a woman, biologically speaking according to this. Isn't a simple footrace the manly end all to the discussion of who's better?

In this snipet they compare the two fastest cross country runners in the world. According to this the only thing keeping a male in front is his god given height, not any biological superiority.



That's great, but aren't men still faster if we look at the very top-level athletes? Let's compare two of the 'hottest' Kenyan runners - Paul Tergat, current world cross country champion, and Tegla Loroupe, winner of the 1994 New York Marathon and an assortment of other major races. Paul is 1.82 metres tall and has run the half-marathon (21 . 1 K) in about 60 minutes. Tegla is just 1.5 metres in height and covers the half-marathon in 68 minutes. Paul's pace for the half-marathon is about 11,593 heights/3600 seconds = 3.22 heights per second. Tegla's tempo is 14,067 heights/4080 seconds = 3.45 heights per second. Tegla is actually faster than the world champion male!


Here's another snippet of the comparison of the world's fastest male and female sprinters. According to this again, a man holds the record only by his god given height. The fastest woman is actually 2% faster.



What about world record performances? Certainly you would think that the very best male sprinter would be faster than the topmost female. Leroy Burrell, who stands 6 feet tall, currently holds the men's world record for 100 metres with a clocking of 9.85 seconds, which turns out to be a velocity of 5.55 heights per second. Florence Griffith-Joyner, who stands 5'6-1/2' tall, holds the women's world record for 100 metres with a time of 10.49 seconds, which is a speed of 5.64 heights per second. Using fair velocity comparisons (in heights per second, not metres per second), the fastest woman in the world is almost 2 per cent faster than the quickest man !


I think the attitude that women are inferior in terms of physical ability needs to be rethought. The fact that women are discouraged from participating in sports or any physically demanding environment is stupid.

S&F! NO DOUBT. I have seen all my children born with my middle son taking three grueling days and my wife was in better shape than me the next day.Women are tougher and smarter as they are the primary carrier and parent to all future humans. Men are burst of vast energy and have a smoke( figurativley) the modes compliment each other for insured survival.

So, what you are saying is. Women could win every race, as long as they don't have to cross the finish line first? You think if a woman races against a man she should have to run a shorter distance because she is shorter?

This post sounds an awful lot like someone has recently lost to a man and is now trying to come up with some way/ any way to make it look like she actually won.

I'm pretty sure the winner of a race is the one that got there first, not the one that seemed to move faster, relative to their height.

Its like saying someone would win more spelling bees if they give easier words relative to IQ.

OMG, two days ago I got in a big fight with my husband over this issue! I was sure I had read women are better at endurance, not only in sports, but then of course when it comes to life expectancy, and even as sperm- the sperm carrying info for a female will live longer than the sperm carrying the info for a male!

We were in the car and when we got home we started googling info.
I could not prove my point. No marathon, for example, has had the female winner arrive ahead of the male winner.
I see your point about the relation to size, but it still leaves me with no case when it comes to the sport.
We found articles which explained that it has to do with with different ways we use oxygen, and the always higher amount of fat women have, which results in consistantly lower (even if slight) results.

It really bummed out my day. I like to think we may have different strengths, and ultimately equal, but truly in this case of physical performance, the concept doesn't hold out.

Its "PC" to say women are stronger than men but put them in a race and who wins most of the time?
Stop sucking up to women and admit were the stronger. Mostof the top scientists chefs engineers etc are all male.
If it was all about size weight ratio ants would be classed as the best.
Accept the truth and move on.

I don't like where this thread ended up. Ultimately it all came down to 'if's then bickering.

IF women were as tall as men...IF men had as much fat-store...IF men could get pregnant to prove their ability to give birth etc. We are all unique and yet equally valued under the sun (or at least should be).

Truth is the one thing I wish everyone, male and female, were proudly trying to prove is how well each sex can get along with the other, then we'd all be the winners

The point is that women are faster than men when graded by distance covered proportionally to height. So all things even, a woman that's a given height racing a man that's the same height will win if they're maximizing each of their bodies in training and diet. Whether it be sprinting or endurance.



scaling is rarely linear ie. when you double a body's size, surface area typically increases by a factor four but volume by a factor of eight.

this can lead to cooling issues, among others, which are very often the limiting factor in physical exercise don't know if you are aware that a trained human (either sex) can chase down any wild furry creature mainly because they can sweat. African hunters regularly use that advantage. of course this issue would be expected to favor slender people and therefore women ... maybe thermal imaging could help identify differences in body cooling, who knows - i'm certain this is being done as we write.

the speed delta between male and female world records is imho small enough to be overcome by appropriate training alone, although i admit if i'd be looking more at long distance endurance type championships to achieve an all-time high, female world record, for the aforementioned (expected) cooling advantage.

medical practice might be a little bit too focused on male traits, too, ie. look how bulky short range sprinters have become, this is more likely a matter of technique as i can't see how 40 lbs pf biceps will help you accelerate - but one which will inevitably favor the bulkier sex. (let's not forget about doping either....)

Riggs did his best to finesse the ball, hitting lobs, drop shots and spins. In one of the most talked about events in United States sports history, Billie Jean King beat Bobby Riggs in three straight sets of tennis by wearing him down with long rallies. The scores were 6-4, 6-3, and 6-3. After the game he graciously said, "She was too good, too fast. She returned all my passing shots and made great plays off them."

Care to revise your statement


Bobby Riggs was FIFTY FIVE YEARS OLD.

She could barely beat a dude who was nearly twice her age, whilst she was in her prime (30 years old is considered the prime of most athletes.)

Women are TERRIBLE all around athletes in comparison to men, it's not even close.

You all need to watch a WNBA game.

Men are not superior to women at all... Anyone who thinks they are, are just lying to themselves, or simply do not understand the world in which they live.

When you look at the facts, women excel in every major category, from health and fitness, to intelligence and beauty. Women have better sense of smell, higher pain tolerance, and pound for pound, are stronger than men.
If you really want to get technical, women are superior to men.

Just look at the universities right now, mainly women. Want a good manager, hire a woman. Women are more reliable, more honest, and more trustworthy than men, for the most part. There are always exceptions.




But now I must ask.... why does it matter so much? Why does one gender have to be superior? Why can't we both be superior, and compliment each other on our good traits, while the other makes up for your bad ones?
Why do we feel compelled to prove we're better than the opposite sex? Why do we have to compete? This battle of the sexes is stupid. We are all human beings. We are all very capable of doing whatever we want to do. We should support each other, grow with each other, and learn together. Just because one is more physically fit, doesn't mean they're more intelligent. Men and women need to stop this war, and start working together, lower that divorce rate, raise our kids properly, and most importantly, experience love, the way it was meant to be.

I am male, and I am not superior to women in any way shape or form.

this is the issue:

regardless of physical prowess, brain, heart or lung size, women and men are very different on so many levels, they are nearly different species. yet, they work together as a whole unit (man+woman) so efficiently (given the correct conditions) that together they are a formidable force of nature.

however, as a result of these differences and the psychological/emotional/spiritual/societal rightness that the two of them together create, there are 2 major differences that will almost always interfer with any concept of a "Better than you," approach:

1) men are geared, genetically, to think positively about themselves in order to achieve what is expected of them in society and in the man+woman scenario. this dynamic innately requires the woman or women of his society, home or planet, be part of the process (et.al, supportive and affirming his strengths). restricting or removing this part of the chain of a successful male psyche, results in malfunctions of the entire person, the society and the man+woman dynamic. admiration is the key to a successful man.

THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. and is the core of why you see so many negative responses. you're fighting against DNA not muscle mass or lung size.

2) women are geared, genetically, to be needed in a positive way because of their attributes, be they intelligence, athletics, arts, sex or home making is irrelevant, as the primary focus is to be needed. this dynamic innately requires the man or men of her society, home or planet, be part of the process (et.al to need her in a positive way, affirming her reason for being and allowing her to express that in positive ways). restricting or removing this part of the chain of a successful female psyche, results in malfunctions of the entire person, the society and the man+woman dynamic. affirmation of her necessity in life is key to a successful woman.
