I have no clue what experiencing pain (childbirth, getting stabbed, burned, whatever) has to do with pain tolerance....if you're giving birth you
have no choice but to tolerate it....you're not lying there straight-faced reading a book while this is going on.....it's like me saying "My head
got lit on fire so that means I have a higher pain tolerance than you." I don't think many humans out there could experience any of those things and
not go, "Owwwww!"
The extent of the expression of pain depends on the strength of will of the individual. I guarantee on average, a dude will be able to handle a wallop
in the head, charley horse, ribs etc. better than a women, while women on average can endure pain and discomfort for longer periods of time much
better than men. This is based solely on the physical builds and tendencies of each gender, the will can always overcome, but being built to withstand
an impact(physically and mentally) sure gives the guy the upper hand in tolerating that type of pain, while the way women are built (again, physically
and mentally) gives them the advantage to tolerate longer periods of pain and discomfort.
Like in survivor, didn't the women always win the challenges where they had to hold their arms straight while balancing on a pole? It's just the way
it goes......Personally, I'd have to give give the overall prize to the guys though, because I'm biased and I want that to be true (in an admittedly
childish fashion).....call me "macho" I guess.....I dunno...but, just like most opinions out there, unable to be proven.
And geez, ladies.....you are talking about a pissing contest.....but most of the piss I've read in these posts are not of the aim-able, thin
streamlined variety...just sayin'
