    I'd NEVER use physical force on a man OR a woman except in self-defense. If I did, I would fully expect to be hit back. Gender excuses nothing. I'm amazed at the voting -- that more think being a woman excuses them. It doesn't, you lil' rabble-rousers.

    If I were attacked or threatened with attack, I would most certainly try to defend myself with some fairly effective dirty street fighting I learned in Tai Kwon Do. But even at that, with a man, it's a fight I'd fully expect to lose.

    Any guy who physically assaults a woman, and, btw, that includes folding your arms in front of you and pushing her around the room, grabbing her forcibly by the arm, or anything else physical, is a 100% Grade A Genuine ***hole. Any woman who does the same earns the same label.

    Bam.

    As I said, there is a reason why every single sport branch is utterly dominated by males. Hell, even chess.

    You can see her punches are not hurting him at all. Man, that knock out was brutal.

    Good solid left right combo.

    But the point I was making was in relation to rosie saying "it isn't possible for women to have the upper body strength that men have".

    That's just nonsense. I know men who are weak as kittens and women who are stronger than most men.
    I get your point, what I'm saying is that while there are clearly female individuals who are stronger than the average male, the average male is by far stronger than the average woman. If you take two equally trained individuals from both sexes, the male wins hands down.

    Sure. That's never really been disputed.

    If you take two equally trained individuals from both sexes, the male wins hands down.
    I'd add a caveat for size. A 185lb woman who trains will probably knock the snot out of a 125 lb man who trains. If they are equally sized, the advantage goes to the male, but it's no guarantee either.

    No, you said it is utterly dominated by males. Are you suggesting that females are inferior at a game where mental skill is all that matters?

    It is a fact that males dominate the sciences and math. It has nothing to do with brain power, it is interest I would think. I mean not that many females want to play chess or be engineers I guess.

    Social scientists have studied it, lawyers have tried to fix it and post-feminist society is over it. But women are still outnumbered by men in math, science and engineering fields.

    Most overt discrimination against women in the sciences has been reduced or eliminated in recent decades through legal, academic, corporate and government measures. But a climate that is less than fully friendly to women remains, and its texture is often still so taken for granted that it tends to be invisible.

    The proportion of women receiving doctorate degrees in science and engineering has increased slightly in recent years, and in 2003, women accounted for 30 percent of the doctorate degrees in science and nearly 9 percent of those awarded in engineering, according to a National Science Foundation report.

    Do not go looking for hidden messeges in my comment, I've meant to what I said and only to what I said.
    That is, the chess branch leaderboard top is dominated by males.
