Did you know that more women graduate college than men? Does that mean that by those numbers you're all less intelligent than women?

Just judging by the response of the majority of male posters here "dominant" is not the word I would use to describe it.
Not talking about anyone actually reading and saying anything respectfully like yourself.

So if we take away the mans advantages the woman could win in endurance given enough time based on physiological advantages. So people win based on advantages... well yeah. And if a midget had long legs he'd be taller...

For the Boston Marathon..

2010 Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot 2:05:52 compared to Teyba Erkesso 2:26:11

2011 Geoffrey Mutai 2:03:02 compared to Caroline Kilel 2:22:36

ect.

Roughly 20 minutes faster is hardly seconds.

This is sort of garbage to be honest. "A women in a man's body with a child's exuberance make the best runners!". How about you splice some cheetah genes and then that will be the fastest !

Once ''graduating college'' becomes a synonym for ''intelligence'', then you may have a point.

However, as your immediate premise is fallacious, your conclusion - based on that argument - is invalid !

Then I think atheltics are also a poor test of physical ability and dismiss your arguement on the grounds of the same ignorance as yours.

Ultimately it comes down to the individual and how much time and effort they put into improving themselves. Race or gender aside, practice makes perfect.


I couldn't of said it any better myself, fantastic sir!

Various sporting endeavours cover a vast array of different physical abilities and attributes. Yet, in every single one of these sports, men are superior to women.

Athletics alone doesn't count as a test for physical ability, but combined with every other test of physical capabilities and objective physiological research, then it provides strong supporting evidence that the average man is physically superior to the average woman.

The same can be said of college. It offers a wide variety of subjects, majors, and even a variety of difficulty level. Overall women perform better at it than men. Yet IQ studies show men and women are almost equal. Almost. That must mean that all men are stupid and not capable thinkers.

Rather than college graduation rates if you really wanted to make your case you'd look at standardized test scores. In that case girls do surpass guys on some subjects, and that's a fair assessment. Or that guys tend to have learning disorders much more often than women. That's fair to say. But to say that women cross the finish line before guys via math rather than actually, you know, crossing it...it's pretty convoluted as well as lazy.

Less pseudo intellectualization and more running.

The point is that me making the general statement that all men are stupid is no more accurate than saying that all women are physically inferior.

i agree with both statements, and regardless of what is wrong or right to say, they both match my life experiences and i would consider them both to be true statements even if technically they are not.

it might be stupid to say them but they certainly seem true most of the time.

Facts, logic and reason all state that on average Men are physically superior to Women. This is confirmed by scientific and empirical data as well. Look at history, look at the present.

Your premise that Women are intellectually superior to Men because more Women graduate from college makes no logical sense.

Do you have any data regarding the statement "on average men are physically superior"? I'd love to see some because I think more women take care of themselves and stay in better physical condition than men. Men often die before their wives, so it would seem to support that in certain circumstances your statment is false. Got anything to support the average debate?

No telling where that leads to.

PHYSICAL DIFFERENCES

There are several obvious differences between men and women, including the following:

1. An average man is taller and heavier than an average woman.
2. Men have more bodily hair than women do, especially on the chest and extremities
3. Women are more sensitive to sound than men
4. Men are over 30% stronger than women, especially in the upper body. Although many feminists cannot face this fact, females simply do not have the strength or endurance necessary to be, for example, effective combat soldiers.
5. On average, girls begin puberty changing approximately two years before boys.
6. Men have larger hearts and lungs, and their higher levels of testosterone cause them to produce greater amounts of red blood cells
7. Differences in intake and delivery of oxygen translates into some aspects of performance: when a man is jogging at about 50% of his capacity, a woman will need to work at over 70% of her capacity to keep up with him.
8. Female fertility decreases after age 35, ending with menopause, but men are capable of making children even when very old.
9. Men’s skin has more collagen and sebum, which makes it thicker and oilier than women’s skin
10. Women generally have a greater body fat percentage than men.
11. Men and women have different levels of certain hormones; for example, men have a higher concentration of androgens such as testosterone, while women have a higher concentration of estrogens.
12. An average male brain has approximately 4% more cells and 100 grams more brain tissue than an average female brain. This is not connected with intelligence! Research points to no overall difference in intelligence between males and females. However, both sexes have similar brain weight to body weight ratios.
13. In men, the second digit is often shorter than the fourth digit, while in females the second tends to be longer than the fourth
14. Men have better distance vision and depth perception, and usually better vision in lighted environments. Women have better night vision, see better at the red end of the light spectrum, and have better visual memory.

You have taken a study and turned it into a gender war...how human of you.

After 30+ years in the military, I have known only two women who could keep up with the demands of combat. That's endurance. I would go to war with them in a heartbeat.

The rest were whiny and weak that proved to be a hinderance to the mission at hand. But of course, I have also seen guys the same way, But overall, the women outnumbered the men, per captia wise.
