If one country is militarily superior to another it means that if the weaker country decides to assert itself it’s going to get its butt kicked in by the stronger. Superior means just that. It means that it is mightier, better, more powerful, more intelligent, more capable, etc.
What gets under my skin per se is not so much the statement that women are superior (well that’s part of it) but it’s the statement spoken with such broad sweeping strokes and little objective evidence to back it up. For example an advocate might state that more girls go to college than boys. This statement is true but does going to college make you superior? How many of you call the local PhD in English to fix your ailing car? I’ve never contacted my local shrink with an advanced psych degree to consider putting an addition onto my home. I wonder why? I’ve yet to see a plumber advertize that because he has a terminal history degree he’s the plumber of choice. What does taking English, psychology, history and other classes mean in these situations? It’s all situational. I believe in education. I’ve been a professor for many years but I also know that just because I help others learn something in academia that in itself doesn’t translate to being superior in all facets of life.
Another statement promoting female superiority is more females are valedictorians. The unstated premise is they are smarter than men (just as the previous statement about going to college assumed). However, if you do a Google search on comparing IQ by gender you’ll find different results. IQ’s are almost gender equal and if anything, tend to favor males by a few points. Bottom line: going to college or being at the top of your class doesn’t mean your superior. It means you have a desire to work harder than whomever graduates #2 or 32 or 102. Remember Thomas Edison and Ben Franklin never even walked into a school. They educated themselves at home. Go figure!
If the premise of women being superior is true then the data should present itself across the board. If country A is militarily superior then it shouldn’t matter if an enemy attacks by land, air or sea. If they’re superior they will be able to defend themselves and cause enough devastation to their advisory to wipe them out, regardless of how they are attacked. If females are indeed superior then why can find all that is listed below? If one gender is indeed superior then all the data would point in that direction. It doesn’t. I found specific data showing the fallacy of this belief system. (If I wanted, I could have found just as much data demonstrating male weakness but that’s not my point.)
Now before the reader gets all bent out of shape let me state: I don’t believe I am superior to Katie. I don’t believe I’m superior to your spouse but neither do I believe Katie or your spouse is superior to me. Each of us has strengths. Each has weaknesses. I have chosen to obey Katie and serve her. My submission has nothing to do with how smart, healthy or emotionally stable she is. Rather it has everything to do with my conscious decision to obey and trust and her commitment to lead. Katie wisely chooses to sometimes take my point of view into consideration when she makes decisions on our behalf. She doesn’t always but she always keeps her options open. She decides; I obey. She directs; I follow. She has responsibilities to lead and run our home; I follow her orders and do what she wants to make our home and marriage run smoothly. Our relationship is not about who’s superior and who’s not; it’s about who leads and who obeys. That is a far different marriage dynamic.
If you are one that believes in female superiority then you have to reconcile what is listed below. If females are indeed superior they should not fall short to male ‘performance’ in any area. Yet they do. So the question that begs to be asked is why do they fall short in so many areas if they are indeed superior? Is all this a lie? Is it all made up? Is all the compiled data wrong or don’t you want to accept what all these studies state? If you choose to ignore all that’s there, is that really superior thinking? Food for thought.
* Women are two to six times more likely to sustain athletic injuries than men. Women's bodies are not biomechanically designed for the demands of sport due to wider hips, shorter legs, weaker muscles and weaker joints/ligaments.
* Of the more than 5 million people in the United States who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s (the leading cause of dementia) two-thirds are women.
* According to Prevent Blindness America (PBA), women are more susceptible than men to vision impairment and comprise 2.6 of the 4.1 million Americans age 40 and older who are visually impaired or blind. Data showed that more women than men experience age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.
* Women are more susceptible to death and disease from infectious pathogens.
* Women are more likely to suffer from PTSD than men.
* Women are known to have a higher risk of a range of anxiety disorders.
* Women are more likely to suffer from depression than males.
* From the CDC: Most people with fibromyalgia are women (Female: Male ratio 7:1).
* From Wikipedia: Several meta-studies between 1994 and 2005 found mean IQ of men exceeding that of women by a range of 3–5 points. Jackson and Rushton found males aged 17–18 years had average of 3.63 IQ points in excess of their female equivalents. Helmuth Nyborg found an average advantage for males of 3.8 IQ points.
* Women suffer from monthly mood swings due to hormonal variations.
* Women are more likely to experience osteoporosis than men.
* Women are more susceptible to the damaging effects of alcohol than men. Both women and female animals are more susceptible to the negative or toxic effects of alcohol. This is true for the liver, heart muscle, skeletal muscle, and it may be true for the pancreas and the brain. In other words, there is something about the female gender that makes them more susceptible to toxic amounts of alcohol.
* Diabetes is more deadly for women. It increases their risk for heart disease 6’x (vs 2-3 times for males). It reduces longevity by over 8 years vs about 7 for men. It increases their risk for depression (2:1 vs males). Diabetic women have more problems than men controlling blood glucose, are more likely to become obese, have higher blood pressure and have unhealthy cholesterol levels.
* Women are more likely to be susceptible to smoking related lung cancers. Researchers focused on a gene called KRAS G12D. Women were more likely than men to have the KRAS G12C mutation, and they developed the disease at a younger age and with a shorter history of smoking.
* Studies have shown that women are more prone to cannabis abuse and dependence than men. In women, cannabis withdrawal symptoms of irritability, sleep disruption and decreased food intake was shown to be more severe, and women also have a higher likelihood of relapsing when quitting the drug.
* The physiology of the female genital tract makes women inherently more vulnerable to HIV than men.
* As with scoliosis in childhood, adult scoliosis is more common in women than in men. In the Johns Hopkins study, which was published in the American Journal of Neuroradiology, females were 1.5 times as likely as males to have scoliosis.
* Women are twice as vulnerable to stress as men because of greater sensitivity to a substance produced at times of anxiety. They found that they are not only more sensitive to low levels of "corticotropin-releasing factor" (CRT) but less able to cope when levels are high.
* When looking at data comparing male versus female concussion injury rates in sports where both sexes play the same sport, females clearly predominate.
* Women are more susceptible to autoimmune diseases than males The sex bias in autoimmune diseases, in which the body's immune system attacks its host, has been known for more than a century. (Women account for roughly three-quarters of all diagnoses.) Here is a list of such diseases:
Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM)
