a post on that level of hostility/provocation is really uncalled for, and a form of trolling/troll bait in and of itself.

Uncalled for. Jebus.

It's what the OP is looking for.

And I can't say she doesn't deserve it.

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.

I'm guessing that your WEAK to pretty much everyone regardless of sex.

ok, if you want to go that route of which sex is better at what, name a female that can bench press over 315lbs? Name a female that can squat over 350lbs? Name a women that can get in the ring with some of equal weight and take a beating plus give one back to a male of equal size.

So, in the end what do you really have to prove?? So what males can do what females can't and visa versa. Its people like you that have to out line this absurd differences for what gain?

The women I know that want to be treated as equals can't compare to me because they're just looking for an easy way out. I'm military and know of 2 women that can hold there own out of dozens. I respect anyone that gives their all. Most women I know are free loaders and gold diggers.

Is 420 lbs ok? Drug free according to the video but....she's really big.

One,compared to how many males that can. She's in a very small group of capable women.
Can you compete with any fit male? I'm guessing not. I'm thinking your an average female that won't be breaking any kind of records soon.

By the way thats not 420lbs. She's doing it shirted and she's not even doing a proper rep. She's doing 320.

Sugar Ray could run faster and longer than George Foreman. Sugar Ray punched George 40 times upside his head and George got kinda mad, punched Sugar Ray once and knocked him the F out. George said "that's for trying to think you were a better pound-for-pound athlete than me".

I could've used a female name in place of Sugar Ray to better my parable, but that would've been demeaning no?

420 LBS is NOTHING!!! Though I cannot lift such a weight, I know a wrestling promoter called the masked maniac in Florida, Frank Goodman who REGULARLY everyday benches 450 on an incline, no big deal here.

posted on Aug, 21 2011 @ 10:48 PM
Scott Mendellson benched 715 unshirted in 2005.

Can someone please find me a female who can do anything remotely close to this weight? There are many guys who can bench press (unshirted) weights over 500-600 lbs and there are few that can crack the 700lb mark...

Also, put any female in the world up against Usain Bolt in sprints....

Now lets talk endurance.... World Record marathon times for both men and women (26 miles should qualify as long distance, right?)

Men- Haile Gebrselassie of Ethiopa Time 2h03:59
Women- Paula Radcliffe of UK Time- 2h15:25

And yet in principle, the fastest woman could never beat the fastest man.

Indeed, a professional 100 meter female athlete could beat most men in a footrace. Yet put that same athlete up against the top tier Male 100 meter sprinters, and all of them would beat the fastest female runner.

The current world record for the 100 meter dash is 9.58 seconds, by Usain Bolt.

The female record is 10.49, almost a second later.

Most male athletes in this race finish between 9.70 and 10.60.

This again is the same in all track and field events equiring explosive athleticism.

The world record in high jump is likewise held by a man at 2.45 meters, while the womans world record is a foot less, at 2.09

Same thing with long jump, same thing with javelin etc.

This is common knowledge. There is no equivalance or relativality at all between male and female athletes. Men are better athletes. Male sports leagues are the ones people take an interest in, because only the greatest athletes deserve our praise - and the greatest athletes are males.

Lebron James is an exagerrated example of how an athletic phenom with a body and athleticism never before seen in professional sports, draws a greater interest in the game of basketball.

Were interested in athletic dominance, aswell as skill. Skillwise, a woman can be as good as any man (and theres no reason to think why a woman couldnt be as skilled with a basketball, or soccerball, as a man is) but their very tender and frail physical frames prevent them from ever becoming as athletic as men are.

Breasts get in the way. Their wider hips also prevent them from jumping higher or moving faster (amare stoudemire, a NBA basketball player is a prime example of there being a connection between a slimmer waist and athelticism. At 6'10, he has a 32 inch waist, very small for a man his sze. Yet nonetheless, he is very built physically and unusually quick for his size)

I can understand 100% why this may be true.

Woman have a stronger and higher threshold when it comes to pain, and if you apply what Arnold says about "no pain, no gain", I can definately see the point here.

It all comes from the fact that women are able to endure the extreme pain of child birth, and thay can blame Eve for that.

too bad women aren't good athletes... only good when compared to other women, i'm not sexist nor do i have bad feelings toward women, it's just pure truth.

As I understand the reason for discussing this thread, I won't stay long

Just wanted to point out that humans totally shouldn't run long distances. Regardless of gender. I suppose the argument still stands, but it's just silly (to me) to discuss something like this.

I suppose we could say we are better swimmers than some sea animals... but really, we didn't evolve to swim. We just learned to deal with what we were dealt. Same with running.

Here is an article that pretty well describes what I'm trying to say. I even used his 'swimming' example.

I suppose I'm just hoping to point out how detrimental this kind of activity is to one's health. Ask a runner- I'm sure they've had a myriad of injuries due to their 'sport'.

Just be careful!!!

You are right in regards to the running as we are long distance walker and we used walk our prey into the ground In actual fact humans are designed for long distance and we're the only hunter which is. All prey and predeter on land regulate their body temperature through breathing so release short bursts of energy in the hunt or the run but can't maintain it. The human hunter regulates its body temeperature through persperation so we can travel long distances over all kinds of terrain and walk our prey into the ground. We are designed for stamina. which is also why an operation on other land mammals must be done fast as they can't control their body temperature while knocked out as thei breathing controls it as where we humans can undergo long operations because we don't regulate our body temperature through breathing.

As for swimming we are an equatic ape.

There's a alot of differences between Homo sapiens and the rest of the great apes, among them: relative hairlessness, subcutaneous body fat ( the only predominately land mammal that has it), bipedality (to make swimming and wading more efficient), a "diving reflex" to prevent drowning in infants, our horrendously inefficient water management system, our lack of fear of the water, the webbing some people have between their fingers and toes, Studies done hold a very good case for it and the theory is a strong one. Also it could go along way to explaining why they can't find the "missing link" if it's out at sea where the coastlines were millions of years ago.

We are all born with the lack of fear of water but some grow out of it and a new born is actually a better swimmer than a 2 year old until the 2 year old relearns to swim. So in a nut shell which is often the case we a born with a throw back ability but it fades

Faster or better endurance just means the muscles/fat in a female's body can carry its weight better than a man's. Without any work, men is usually stronger than women. I don't think faster or how athletic a person is makes a huge difference. I think it's about strength. Feminism sounds good on paper and sounds like the right thing to do, but in practice it's ruined marriages and balances.

Men and women are meant to be different, each for different purposes and with different strengths. I don't get why girls keep trying to measure up w/'s pointless. It's like an average height person who keeps trying to compare him/herself with Yao Ming or Shaq.

The conclusion is be comfortable with who you are, and measure your strength with another's weakness. When you keep trying to match up your weakness to another's strength, that'll make u inconfident.

Think of it like this. Given the differences between men and women who has more endurance for their physical make-up. Considering the fact that the top women runners finish only a few seconds behind their male counterparts while understanding the advantages a male's body has over a womans it's safe to say that a woman has more endurance.

Yep, fair enough. I could only handle washing up in the kitchen for 10 minutes before I was drained of the ability.

Wow, presume much? That has got to be one of the rudest assumptions you can make about someone you don't know...

So,her opinion is different than yours,so she must have issues?

That is the stupidest non-sense and quite frankly, you owe her an apology.
