    Men vs Women - Strength

    This was found by AMs Otis the Sweaty and was just too good, to not blog about it (Kudos to you Otis). It is so out of this world and sureal, I am wondering if the gals at feministing really were taking the subject seriously. That is why I gave it the "bizarre" label.

    Ill start with what most humans know. Men are on average stronger than women. This has something to do with testosterone, but Ill let Wikipedia do the talking.
    Testosterone effects can be classified as virilizing and anabolic, although the distinction is somewhat artificial, as many of the effects can be considered both.
    • Anabolic effects include growth of muscle mass and strength, increased bone density and strength, and stimulation of linear growth and bone maturation. - from Wiki
    • On average, men have a greater capacity for cardiovascular endurance. This is due to the enlargement of the lungs of boys during puberty, characterized by a more prominent chest.
    • On average, men are stronger than women. This is due to a greater capacity for muscular hypertrophy as a result of men's higher levels of testosterone. - from Wiki
    Not if anyone with common sense needs evidence. We just have to think about Olympia and we know why sexes are separated in competitions. So that women are able to win medals, too (this is true for most sports).

    Speaking of Olympia, comparing the weight lifting records really makes this obvious.

    The strongest woman in the highest weight class can barely beat the strongest man in the second-lowest weight class. The rest of the female world record holders cant compete. The difference between the highest total weigth is almost 150 kilos.

    Testosterone is used for doping purposes as well:
    Testosterone may be administered to an athlete in order to improve performance, and is considered to be a form of doping in most sports. There are several application methods for testosterone, including intramuscular injections, transdermal gels and patches, and implantable pellets.

    Anabolic steroids (including testosterone) have also been taken to enhance muscle development, strength, or endurance. They do so directly by increasing the muscles' protein synthesis. As a result, muscle fibers become larger and repair faster than the average person's. - from Wiki
    And if you cut off the supply of testosterone, your muscle mass will decrease. That is why the IOC is accepting transsexuals

    Transsexuals were cleared Monday to compete in the Olympics for the first time.


    [...]
    Some members had been concerned whether male-to-female transsexuals would have physical advantages competing against women.


    Men have higher levels of testosterone and greater muscle-to-fat ratio and heart and lung capacity. However, doctors say, testosterone levels and muscle mass drop after hormone therapy and sex-change surgery.


    [...]
    "In some sports, the physical superiority of men over women is very significant." - from here
    and why castration leads to a decrease in muscle mass. This is the explanation on something we all know. Men are stronger...

    Now we enter the surreal world of feministing:


    All from here:

    In truth, this assertion of women being as strong as men is correct. There are many statistics that will show women to often be physically weaker than men, but I have yet to hear of any significant portion of society to even consider any reason for that statistic other than that women having a biological disadvantage. That is not the reason for those statistics. Anyone who cares to think about the process of evolution can immediately see that a biological disadvantage is evolutionarily impossible. Every biologist knows that, in nature, most of any given individual creature's competition for food, shelter, etc. comes from members of its own species. Men and women, in nature, without technology or civilization, eat the same food, live in the same type of shelters, and are in competition for everything that might be in limited supply. As little as ten thousand years ago, there was no such thing as law, culture, or civilization. Every individual cared for themselves, first and foremost, just as it is with nearly all other animals. If one person were stronger than another, the weaker would starve to death as soon as there is any shortage of food, or be killed as soon as they irritate the stronger person. If one group of people were stronger than another, such as men being stronger than women, then the weaker group would be wiped out, except for any individuals that were strong enough to fight off members of the stronger group. Their children would then all be that strong. The fact that women survived in that time period is proof that they have the same physical abilities. within a single species, evolution forces equality.
    Translation: But it does not make sense that women are weaker so women are not. Brilliant logic, that is called sexual dimorphism. Another shot:
    In all the history of feminism, I am unaware of any unbiased experiment being done to actually determine whether women are weaker or not. The scientific community has as many sexists as any other, and male scientists benefit from patriarchy as much as any other males. This is not to say that there is anything wrong with male scientists in general, but I would be shocked if there weren't those among them working to make women look weak using biased or altogether fake science just as has been done with racism, and other aspects of sexism. There was a time when it had been "scientifically proven" by all German scientists that German people were superior to all others. Most of us find that rediculous. Some day the idea that women are weaker will be just as rediculous to us as that.
    Male scientist lie. Yeah that is it. It goes on:

    Men, on average, are stronger than women simply because men on average are larger than women. They simply tend to be taller and women have more body fat (its healthier for us to have more body fat... its for all that childbearing stuff). It is these factors that make men seem stronger, the fact that they are bigger and therefore just have more pound for pound muscle and that women have different levels and spreads of body fat to deal with.
    Tall equals strong? So basketball players would make great weightlifters? Hehe....no. It is all because we tell women that they are weaker:

    I many cases girls are trained from birth by their parents to think that women are weaker. [...] If a person truly believes that they are physically weak, they will limit the amount of strength they will be able to acquire and use. Girls are also often less supported in sports and other muscle building activities, giving them little incentive to be strong. As if that weren't enough, men are pushed by society to do all heavy lifting and other muscle building activities for women around them, meaning that women don't ever have an opportunity to build real muscle. If men were subjected to that same oppression, i firmly believe that they would be no stronger that the average woman.
    Brilliant. It is opression after all. But this one finally takes the cake:
    Furhtermore, even with thier slightly smaller size, a woman who can put the sexist teachings out of her mind can become as strong as any man.
    Any man? All because of sexism? Yeah that must be true....

    More...
    The men's and fathers' movement needs to make sure it never sees females as the enemy,
    but only misandry--whether from females or from males.
    If not, we'll become like the bigoted feminists that this movement was formed to oppose.

    Those feministing comments prove that for any illogical viewpoint, you can always find a coconut who believes it.

    Evolutionarily, men being stronger than women makes perfect sense. Our evolutionary ancestors would probably not have the genders competing with each other for resources. Instead, it was probably our male ancestors competing with other male ancestors to provide for themselves and their mates, which favored increased strength in the males of the species then, and men today.

    As for unbiased sources on men's strength compared to women's, I'd say these are pretty unbiased here:

    Um... if women were all wiped out for annoying our mates, surely there wouldn't be any children? Or was that too simple an equation for her greater intellect?

    She seems to be ignoring the fundamental fact the we needed man to provide for us to enable us to be strong enough to survive pregnancy and thus perpetuate the species. We were, and still are, no more than a vessel to ensure continuation. Just as man is, and was, no more than a giver of the seed.

    Man cannot survive without woman; woman cannot survive without man - fact.

    You should be ashamed of yourselves for questioning femi-logicalisticisms.
    The most offensive thing you can do to a feminist is treat her with FULL equality.

    Men's strengths are attributed to their logic, innovation, and physical prowess, while Women's strengths are attributed to their emotions, intuition, and sexual prowess. This is the conclusion I came up with.

    The fact of the matter is that men and women are only equal in a sense that they are both human. Men are stronger, faster, smarter and more resilient than women and nobody will ever change that obvious fact. Not the squealing feminazis, not the mangina perverts, not the media, not the government parasites, NOBODY. Show me one female that can bench press 408lbs 12 times, show me a female that can build a house with their bare hands. Show me a female that can take an axe handle to the face and shrug it off. Show me one female that can build an entire kingdom and raise towers of steel and glass.
    You'll never find one because the matriarchal societies never made it past the stone age and this new age of women only seem fit to whine and pass gas.

    Re: Men vs Women - Strength

    Obviously there is an inborn strength difference, but she does have a point in between her wishful thinking. Society DOES overinflate the strength difference, encouraging boys to be big and strong and girls to be thin and pretty. If both sexes played heavy contact sports all their lives, I'd say the strength difference would still be there but it would be a lot smaller.

    Also, at the extreme ends of the scale such as Olympic athletes, there are differences, but individuals vary wildly. I'm stronger than some men my own size, even some heavier ones. I have long tendons that attach quite a bit away from the joints. So the idea of men = strong, women = frail, IS misleading.

    It's even more miss leading when some head strong lesbian claims to be independent and then play the victim card when she gets in trouble.
    Frail is the correct word to use!

    No. Wrong. Men might be more athletic on average but there are women who are just as athletic as men just as there are men that don't have that level of physicality. Intelligence is another matter, women tend towards average IQs but men tend to be all over the place on the bell curve, exceptions exist however. To say that one sex is always better than the other is just one step away from supremacism.

    You'll never find one because the matriarchal societies never made it past the stone age and this new age of women only seem fit to whine and pass gas.
    That's even assuming that we actually had a matriarchal society(we've had matrilineal ones though, and these are documented[like the Celts])
