What are the advantages/disadvantages women have over men physiologically?

They know how to use their brain.

Is that physiological?

women live longer, though i'm not sure what the cause is.

we have longer endurance when it comes to low stress activities; vice versa for high stress activities.

i've also heard a lot that we have a higher threshold for pain, but this is debatable.

i guess the main thing physiologically would be hormone levels.

we are also way better at reading social clues; and understanding intentions of others.

again not sure the cause; but there have been some tests on this. i'll try to find them.

No he said that women have over men.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Nothing subjective. I'm talking about physiological structures that are the same across all women/men.

I would guess so. Considering women undergo so much pain as part of their body structure.

i guess the main thing physiologically would be hormone levels.
Is that an advantage over men?

It does not logically follow that they are therefore better at dealing with it.

that they're beautiful would be my opinion of women almost in their entirety. I mean they're not prospective enemies who you'd weigh up, they're beautiful things who men love, as sexist as that may sound, but it's not really I don't think. they're kinda like children, only through sexyness rather than funny cute little hands, gurgling and baby eyes. I figure it's what evolution made of them :P

their genitals hurt less when they get hit?

Women have brains better adapted to social interaction
Men have brains better adapted to spacial reasoning
Men have higher testosterone levels, leading to greater ability to build lean muscle
High testosterone levels make you live not as long
Men have more embarrassing puberty (voice cracking, constant erections)
Women have menopause
Men can pee standing up
Women get more frequent Urinary Tract Infections
Men go bald
Men have higher rates of color-blindness
Women have multiple orgasms

and this is why us women like showers so much ;P

jk lol.

thanks. this answered a couple of my own questions. do you know what parts of the brain are more developed in men vs. women? or it is a case of the chemicals that fire in the brain?

I dunno, new studies dispute whether the difference in spatial reasoning even exists and whether it is biological or cultural. Women are better at social tasks because their amygdala's are better at processing emotion and their limbic systems are better at remembering faces (as well as tolerating pain). There's also cultural explanations too.

so can women, only it's messy! :)

Women get more frequent Urinary Tract Infections
Men go bald
Men have higher rates of color-blindness
Women have multiple orgasms

women have periods, menstrual cramps, accompanied by stomach aches, mood swings, depression.

Their bodies perform all kinds of crazy metamorphoses when they are pregnant, stuff comes out from places, mood swings, insane cravings, etc.

men have it so easy.

At the expense that, in the way of reproduction, we have little necessity besides ejaculating sperm, while the woman is more important to reproduction than us men are.

Not to mention the fact that science has speculated that, in reality, women are naturally the real "hunters," in a family (when not pregnant), while the man is more adept at "nesting."

lol where's that?

women are gatherers :P

low stress continual activity...

men are faster and stronger, if there's any Serious hunting to be done.. Men would Generally be better at it just as they are generally better at sports.

Who'd be better at wrestling/getting the fck away from a raging half-injured boar? Men :)

That said... probably most sustenance was gained from Gathering/Trapping...

but whatever hunting was done back in the day... was probably primarily done by Men... as has been the case from what I know in hunter-gatherer native american societies and New-guinean societies.

Who says hunting was probably done by Women?

Even among lions Males are better hunters.. they're just lazier b/c they've got to save up energy in case Threats like other males or Hyenas come about.

Umm to be more clear, I mean that they can be a carrier for the gene without having it expressed. If a man carries the gene from his mother it will be expressed. But a woman needs the gene from both parents.

women's set up down below makes them more likely to get sex-transmitted diseases :/

Perhaps, if it is true that men are more promiscuous than women, this fact has something to do with it? o.O

Ha! I love evolution :)

Sets me up for coming up with random Plausible explanations for correlations which make me feel like I'm figuring new stuff out :o)
