I bled for a year once, I've removed hundreds of surgical staples from my own body, I've stitched my own wounds, I've even removed a German Shephard
from my hindquarters, but I don't have anywhere near the pain tolerance of my wife, guaranteed. And I'm not talking about child birth or cramps, I'm
talking about daily activities.
How about some of the men here try holding a baby carrier with a 15 lb kid in it, and a purse on the other shoulder, and just stand statically for
some period of time. I guarantee, even though I weigh almost 3 times what my wife weighs, and even though I lift weights, and run, and practice
martial arts, I cannot hold the baby carrier as long as she can. I can't even bounce back and forth on my feet making a baby sleep as long as she
can, because my feet hurt, my arms are on fire, my lower back cramps up. She feels those same pains, but she ignores them and bounces the baby for
hours, when I can barely do it for minutes.
Women feel pain, and they know when to see a doctor, and when to ignore it. Men act
tough. That is the only part of the study I agree
with, but if it comes down to hanging onto a cliffside to save your own life, the women will all outlast the men. If it comes to carrying your baby,
purse, groceries, keys, uphill, with the cold wind in your face, the women just do it, while the men complain about it and look for a closer parking
Men act tough, women ARE tough!
