Are Women Really Superior to Men?

Yin and yang, masculine and feminine…the age old battle of the sexes. Stereotypes say that men are more dominating, vigilant and stable, while women are more sensitive, warmer and empathetic. In biological terms, men and women have different body structures, biological responses and sexual systems. So which sex is superior, men or women?

Some think that the clash between men and women was finally settled on a tennis court on September 20, 1973 in Houston, Texas. That was the year of the Battle of the Sexes, when  tennis professional Bobby Riggs challenged top female players, most notably Billie Jean King, to a tennis match to settle the question. In spite of the fact that men are seen as having superior physical strength, Riggs lost to Billie Jean King. She started out strong and proceeded to win every game, and ultimately, the entire match. That year, there was no question that women were superior to men on the tennis court. Some think that women are unquestionably superior in other areas, too.

The Miracle of Birth

One of the most obvious differences between men and women is that women can give birth to the next generation. Of course, the man does his part, but the baby grows within the body of the mother. The baby and the mother form a profound bond, even before the baby is born. It has long been known that the mother passes nutrients and immunities to the baby, but a recent study suggests that cells of the mother may migrate to the fetus, and vice versa. In other words, cells from the developing baby enter the mother’s bloodstream through the placenta. This amazing connection is unique to the mother/child relationship.

No Pain, No Gain

In a related issue, many believe that to withstand childbirth women are endowed with a higher tolerance for pain than men. There are studies that show that women have evolved to experience pain differently from men, and even feel a higher degree of pain in similar circumstances, but they are better able to deal with the pain. Of course, since pain is subjective, it is difficult to measure in a scientific experiment. In addition, men may have been brought up to be “macho” and deny having any pain even when they do experience it. On the other hand, ask any woman about a man’s ability to cope with pain, and you will probably hear about how much of a baby he is.

Surviving on Less

Women, as a whole, can survive longer than men without food. That is because women typically have more body fat than men do and less muscle mass. This situation gives females a double advantage. They have the metabolic benefit of stored calories in the form of fatty tissue, and they have the advantage because fatty tissue requires fewer calories in the diet than muscle. You can also say that women are “greener” than men because they use fewer natural resources in order to survive. They need less air, water and food than their male counterparts.

Living Longer

Statistically, women live longer than men. By the age of 85 there are approximately only four men to every six women, and by the age of 100 there are two women for every man. The facts are undeniable. The question is, why? The answer may be a combination of lifestyle choices and biology. Males have a significantly higher death rate from the mid teenage years until the mid twenties, when they engage in reckless and violent behavior that can make them the victim of accidents, homicide and drowning. However, there are other reasons. Women typically eat healthier diets including fruits and vegetables, while some men prefer a meat and potatoes diet. Women also tend to take better care of themselves by getting screened for illness regularly for early detection, and they seek appropriate care if they do get sick. There is also some evidence that a male’s immune system tends to break down more quickly than a woman’s.

Emotional Intelligence

Many feel that women are poised to take over leadership roles in the workplace because of their superior social skills and emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence includes an array of attributes from self-mastery to interpersonal abilities. Women score extremely high in empathy, the ability to understand other people’s feelings and identify with their difficulties. On the other hand, women tend to have less self-confidence than men. They are typically less violent and aggressive, and commit fewer crimes. Females are also safer drivers by adhering to traffic laws more often and driving closer to the speed limit. The result is that women are less likely to be involved in risky driving, and they are involved with fewer fatal crashes worldwide.

The Genetic Advantage

Being endowed with not one, but two X chromosomes gives women a greater health advantage over her male counterpart. Women are less likely to fall subject to diseases that are linked to the X chromosome, such as color blindness, hemophilia and muscular dystrophy. This is because women have two X chromosomes, one from her mother and one from her father, and the healthy X chromosome can override a disease in the unhealthy chromosome.

The Debate Rages On

While women may be superior in certain areas, there are other areas where men have advantages over women. Males typically have more physical strength than women, and they can have children later on in life. When it comes to leadership, males are often superior in staying focused and motivated. Men tend to take more risks than women, and they are often better at spacial relationships. Keep in mind that every individual is different, and women can surpass males in some instances. Science is constantly coming up with studies to explain why men and women are different and predict their behavior. The bottom line is that men and women are different, but the energy of both yin and yang complement each other.

  1. Hi.

    I am a guy and wanted to comment and be totally up front. Women are far superior to men. There is not question. Men do not want to admit it or show it but it is totally true. Almost everything a guy does is to make himself attractive to women and when to comes down to it we will do what women want. Some guys try to put up a front and some resist by trying to act powerfully but secure men know women are superior and work hard to please women. I think this will be come more clear over time and women should and will be in more positions of power.

    The reasons in this article are correct – women are smarter, more socially capable and nurture and develop the next generation. Clearly men serve a purpose – but women are superior.

    • Hi.

      I am a guy and I disagree with the idea that women are far superior to men. Of course, the viceversa is also false, that’s why I agree with the idea presented in the article that men and women complement each other. Tell me, is a woman superior to a man at soccer? Or, like in the example, is the man superior to woman at tennis?
      About what you’ve said: you just described the men that lose their mind for a woman and it is true that even in the ancient era there were powerful women that used their beauty to use men. Also in mythology, there was the most beautiful woman, Helen, that could make every man mad about her. Now you believe these stories and history facts as a whole? I mean, are you really sure that there weren’t any men capable to reject those women? I think there were, but no history fact says everything about all people that lived in a certain time and a story will always tell the things in an exagerated way in order to impress the readers or listeners. What you’ve described is the common type of ‘secure’ man that lose his mind for a pussy (sorry for the language, but that’s the fact). The article reviews everything in an objective way telling about the differences between man and woman and the fact that men are superior to women in some areas while women are also superior to men in other areas.
      And, women are smarter than men? Really? Don’t get me wrong, but if women are usually smarter to you that doesn’t mean they are smarter than every man. You should know that in most cases women have higher EQ than men while men have higher IQ than men.

  2. You blithering idiot, your talking out your ass…. Please, and I mean this in the nicest way possible…(pause)… DO NOT EVER have children, for the love of all that is holy. Now, I don’t want to get on a rant here but, ….the last thing anyone needs right now is to listen to the backwards, non-sensical jabbering’s of some mindless retard like you who’s only perpetuating the FALSLE ideology behind gender equality completely devoid of any conscious thought (and by that I mean offering up any of there own opinions on this matter, because I find it quite hard to believe that any of your current impression or assumptions gender equality haven’t been influence in some way by the propagandist media networks spouting this shit). Its gotten to the point now where people like you are almost completely incapable of formulating their own ideas and opinions without either being dissuaded by their own morale objections (more or less the over whelming vast majority of women buying into this non sense) or suggestible mentally sub normal people like you Len. P

    • You’re* nonsensical* Jabberings* false* impressions* impressions of gender equality* influenced* it’s* moral* overwhelming* nonsense* subnormal**
      Jeez, one would think that if someone is going to insult someone else’s intelligence they would, in the very least, know how to spell basic words, and not a hint of proper punctuation throughout. Maybe next time, spell check your insults, idiot. You, PLEASE don’t reproduce. We want our next generation to be intelligent. Thank you.

      And by the way most data points to women being vastly superior in the majority of ways. The only reason we haven’t taken over the world is because there are still MANY women, brainwashed by misogynistic values, such as women belong at home. If you had any sense at all, you would understand this, Mr. Pot.

      In case your brain lacks the ability to understand the reference, as is seeming very likely. I’m talking about the saying, “that’s like a kettle calling a pot black” in reference to the fact that you called someone an idiot, and then wrote a paragraph showing just how truly stupid you are.

  3. You blithering idiot, your talking out your ass…. Please, and I mean this in the nicest way possible…(pause)… DO NOT EVER have children, for the love of all that is holy. Now, I don’t want to get on a rant here but, ….the last thing anyone needs right now is to listen to the backwards, non-sensical jabbering’s of some mindless imbecile like you who’s only serving perpetuate the FALSLE ideology behind gender equality completely devoid of any conscious thought (and by that I mean being able to offering up any of there own opinions on this matter, because I find it quite hard to believe that any of your current impressions or assumptions on gender equality haven’t been influence in some way by the propagandist media networks spouting this shit). Its gotten to the point now where people like you are almost completely incapable of formulating their own ideas and opinions on such a matter without either being dissuaded by their own morale objections (more or less all women) or suggestible/mentally sub normal people like you Len who simply cant think for themselves. Women are in no way equal to men, that’s to suggest that their second class citizens, they have their own invaluable role in this world but it couldn’t be any further removed than what’s being catered to them in society today. Do you not find it a little more than pure chance, coincidence that anyone who’s made any real significant contributions in this world… in any field of human endeavour… that the OVERWHELMINGLY VAST MAJORITY of those break throughs have all been made by men. Its because women simply lack the creative and intellectual capacity to make any such breakthroughs themselves. Deludingly, feminists would like argue that it was the social inequalities that produced that particular set of circumstances, but that’s just not true. So to call them selves equals when they had absolutely no hand in making it that way is a joke. I implore anyone reading this to do there own unbiased research into what i’m saying, depending on weather or not your research IS conducted unbiasedly and with sincere motivation to ascertain the truth behind all this conjecture you’ll discover pretty quickly that there is a wealth of accurate , well sourced ,independently funded scientific evidence out there that proves unequivocally that what im saying is correct.

    You demented maniac Len…

    “I am a guy and wanted to comment and be totally up front. Women are far superior to men. There is not question. Men do not want to admit it or show it but it is totally true.

    Probably good advice if you’ve got shit for brains, Len, Did you survive an abortion or something, what happened to you.

    • Biologically, a females genetic makeup is superior to that of a males. Females have two X chromosomes giving them a big advantage when it comes to diseases. Since males have only one X chromosome if that one X chromosome is a defect then males will then have whatever the defect that that X chromosome is carrying. While if a female has a defected X chromosome she has another one that can just take over and pick up where the other is lacking. This can explain many disorders and diseases like colour blindness, hunter syndrome and autism that are rare for females to obtain.
      There have also been plenty of studies of primate societies with female alphas (seen in bonobos and baboons) where these societies are extremely empathetic, cooperative, and half vastly lower stress levels comparably to other primate groups who have alpha males.

      Males do have a higher history of mathematical genius compared to females (probably do to the fact that males are systematizers while females are stronger empathizers) but they also have higher rates in stupidity and masturbation compared to the fairer sex…Statistically speaking, females live longer than males, are known to have a more efficient immune system as well as stronger social skills.
      I’m not saying that females are better than males, I think that we both have our own strengths and weaknesses. Though, scientifically it has been proven, countless times, that females are biologically made better than males.

  4. Len, powerful statement, powerful statement indeed. I would demand scientific proof for such an assumption rather than what you have experienced or heard, but even slave masters though up clever opinionated solutions to why they were more dominant than a person who was simply darker than them. Once again, very well put, although in my opinion i would like to just say that the reason guys tend to act the way they do is because that’s the way it’s always been. Its a normality, guys normally go up to woman, guys are usually raised to provide.
    You tell me women are superior but i haven’t seen any proof. Men need women, and women need men. The sad problem is the way that things are set up, the woman opens her legs when the man does what impresses her. No offense but that’s how the woman makes it for herself.

  5. The true way to complete life; Finish All The Task, At Hand. How? Don’t judge people, Don’t bring up the situation of, Are men REALLY better or Women REALLY better, you get them high flung idiots who say, Well we could just “Phase” out men or women no, you cant, and further more– No one is superior… If we HAVE to have this discussion, then we truly ALL are Sub-Humans and don’t deserve any rights little long our minds that allow us to think, prosper, and be creative in our ways.

    If we Really, have to his THIS discussion, then you are a Sub Human to me… I am disgusted that we have to even think of this, and by far I rarely ever think this up alone… Best of luck, and hope you can realize the Women is the Child holder, is more “Gentle” than the Men, Men go to war and protect, and women don’t naturally fight… It’s how it’s been for many many years, Because women are just not Built for raging wars hand on hand, unlike guns.

  6. This article was definitely made by a moderate feminist. Not to disagree with the points she brings, they are natural advantages to being a woman. Men who want to become women will never attain such advantages the way the natural born women have it. I like most men would get disgusted with the thoughts of Len P. You just can’t say we are equal or that any other is superior in all areas. Men have controlled this world historically, suppressed women undeniably but that is not to suggest that women aren’t capable of great feats. There has been great female scientists in biochemistry, in computer science. Sure women may take better care, be more detailed or whatever but the same exceptions can be made. There are men that are better parents as fathers than as the mothers of their children.

    I think being totally pro feminine is not a good idea for a bully country like the United Sates, want to become like Sweden where men do not longer stick for their women, let muslim rapists inside their country and treat their women as whores.

  7. Also men are responsible for the majority of crime. As a man in my 40s I have learned that woman simply are superior to men. I think if more women were in positions of power all of us, men and women, would probably have happier and better lives.

  8. Hmmm. My experience is that ‘most’ ( and I debated that word before using it ) women think they are better than men. The modern world of women run down men far beyond thinking they are equal. Some actually hate us and some think they are just better. Some are logical and believe that men and women are the same and some think physically vs intellect and decide men are better. I don’t. I think we are about the same but we are talking semantics. I mean ….. Better in
    what ?! Shall we take everything into account ? And to what end ?
    I just don’t think it matters tbh, but it is very sad / depressing and quite a bad future we have ahead of us if “most” women think they are better than men… And my experience in life is that this is the case and I don’t see it changing.
    ( divorced nice guy aged 41 – say no more eh.. )
    But also men should also “grow up” and not think themselves superior.
