    That's probably the root of risky behavior.

    And it is not just for females. Men among themselves do insane stuff too.
    Men are better represented in the extremes and women are better represented at the average. Men are in fact smarter than women on average. Anyway, plenty of extremely smart individuals are risk takers. I have an IQ of 145 and I have done plenty of dumb things just because I wanted too. Ever been out surfing in a Hurricane? I have and it was ****ing awesome.

    I Googled around, and what I've read confirms what you're saying. So I'm wondering if maybe this is an older-generation naughty joke. I'm not quite sure where in England my former colleague was born, but my vague sense is not far from London. Her late (and much older) husband's Wiki page says he was born in Norwich, Norfolk. Could this be a regional thing? I'm just really curious now.

    And posturing is directed at both sexes. Just for different ends.
    But posturing of women does not often risk the life of that woman, posturing of men can cost lives.

    That is why I did not say "men are stupid and women intelligent", I said that when it comes to their safety, men are more stupid than women.

    I don't care which gender makes more stupid decisions. I tend to be an outlier from the male population, so I don't bother to compare myself to others in terms of popular averages. Never have, never will.

    Other.

    No.

    And you could at least link the damn study cited at the beginning of the article.
    Education.

    I meant men posture for women and other men. Different desired outcomes usually, of course.

    Then you're using the string of characters s-t-u-p-i-d to refer to a different concept than it's usually taken to refer. You're using it to describe reckless or risky. Whereas usually it describes lack of intelligence. And then you're conflating those two uses in order to draw bad conclusions (men=brawn, women=brains, blah blah).

    Men are more reckless than women when it comes to physical safety. Not less intelligent. Risky behavior isn't stupid. It's risky. Just because a person is willing to accept higher risks than you are willing to accept does not mean he/she is stupid. It means you disagree about what level of risk is acceptable.

    Labeling people who have a higher risk tolerance than you as "stupid" shows an ironic lack of understanding on your part.

    There's men who watch sports and then there's men who would never watch sports yet still manage to sleep with better looking women. Such is to say, your average man is a moron, yes.
