    I am reading Inside Tennis now and it quotes Simon Barnes of The London Times:

    -----------
    "Women are not athletically inferior to men. In most sports, women operate to ... different standards... In many ways women are physically superior. When it comes to extreme endurance, tolerance of pain, coping with extremes of temperature and sense of balance, women beat men every time. But most sporting events - being invented by men - are not tough enough to reach the point at which female superiority kicks in."
    ------------

    My own two observations prove this beyond a doubt:

    1. In the B grade movies where a team of people are always escaping from a dinosaur/mutant crocodile/mutant shark/big anaconda/horror serial killer etc, a scantily dressed woman always survives till the end, while the men get killed one by one.
    2. Henin's one handed backhand is superior to Federer's.

    I assume you guys think you are a better than a journalist at the London Times?

    I have read that men are more prone to die of heart disease earlier than women.

    You know, I was just watching a WNBA game and thinking how much better the women are than the men.

    Good post!

    I don't mind it if women are more athletically superior than me. That won't change my life

    That is because sports have been designed by men for men.

    We need to design new sports in which women's superior athleticism can be revealed.

    There is already gymnastics of course.

    'extreme endurance' : Perhaps WTA should start making their entertainers...I mean players play for best of five sets at Grand Slam events. Equal pay for equal work, no?

    That was great....



    I think the OP is right, after all, in non-genderized sports like track and field where the genders compete in like events, who owns the records?
    • 100 meter dash
    • discus
    • relay races
    • decathalons
    • shot put
    • hurdles
    • high jumps
    Wait...on 2nd thought maybe the OP is full of crap.

    So you guys who randomly post here are better than accomplished journalists?

    I mean, you are all not 5.0 players with a 110 mph serve as you think, but in reality 3.0 players with a 30 mph serve (on a good day).

    Moreover, I already provided two solid pieces of evidence.

    In every way possible men are better then women. If men gave birth there would be no more disease/crime in this world.

    Men are more athletic then girls.

    1. Dude, the movie producers don't have a choice. If the scantily women died first, there would be angry cries of "OMG SEXISM ARRRRGH" or complaints about the movie indirectly condemning scantily clad women. There would be threads made about it on this very forum, probably by you. Not that there would be anything wrong with that.

    2. lol at Henin's anything being superior to Fed's

    Since when was the word of a journalist equivalent to gospel? You think he is an authority on gender superiority? No, it's just another ordinary person expressing an opinion, albeit a ridiculous one.

    Moreover, where is this evidence? All I can see is two subjective opinions, one of which is yours and will therefore be disregarded immediately.

    This thread also gives us an opportunity to note how it is somehow permissible for someone to assert women's superiority over men without receiving any dissent from men. If someone published an article in The Times claiming that men were superior to women there would be feminist uproar and the paper would be sued out of shape. Funny how the principle only works one way and not the other...

    Gymnastics is a sport dominated by men as well I'm afraid. It combines flexibility, agility and strength. Women may be somewhat equal with men in the first two departments but they don't have a man's strength. Therefore they cannot compete with men in certain types of gymnastics.

    Are you claiming that none of the thousands of sports in the world, those that involve endurance, power, strength, agility, athleticism, flexibility and explosiveness, none of them suits the athletic capabilities of women?

    If women require such specific conditions in order to be superior to men that no sport on the planet meets their needs, then their supposedly "superior athleticism" is pretty useless.

    You better start coming up with some imaginary sports and quick, my friend.

    If they're so great athletically and would like to prove it, why don't they make their own sport, huh? I don't care if we are more prone to heart disease because that's life.

    Women being athletically superior to men is so obviously wrong that it's hilarious. Men OBVIOUSLY did most of the hunting during our evolutionary history. Hunting requires more athletic activity than cooking and caring for offspring. Men are on average and at best taller, faster, stronger, more agile, quicker to react, better hand-eye coordinated, etc. Women are on average better at memory and a whole bunch of other things. But in the athletic department, men are obviously programmed to be fiercer opponents in battle situations.

    This whole thread is turning into a misogynistic/misandric mess.

    The mods should react quick, lest it continues.

    As any high level athlete will tell you - girls are about two levels below guys. If I was a girl I could make the national team for volleyball, and be the star player.

    I have a friend who is into fencing (inside top #100 in the world) and he says the same thing applies to fencing. It's pretty universal.

    As Andy Murray said - guys inside top 1000 could take on womens' #1 no problem.

    If men became extinct, the species would continue, via sperm banks. The converse is not true.

    I think female gymnasts are better on the balance beam. ;)

    But otherwise I agree with you.
    Women aren't that far behind men percentage-wise in extreme sports like marathon but they ARE behind.

    So, women giving birth and doing more spins in gymnastics = better athletes?

    By then cloning will have taken over. Backup plan will be to increase the incentive for men to rub one off now so that the stores are good for a 1000 years. I'm sure that won't take much incentive.

    Well Roger and Rafa et al don't just hit the ball harder. They hit it with more spin, more variety, more consistency, more precision and from anywhere on the court. Men are better athletes as demonstrated by the fact that the 600th ranked man can beat possibly the greatest women ever.

    Don't worry, women are better at handwriting.

    Harder, more consistent, more accurate, better movement. 80% of guys don't grunt and hit the ball twice as hard then girls that scream at the top of their lungs

    So I guess this means a WNBA team could beat a NBA team, or Woz would beat Nadal or Fed right? :lol:

    I appreciate female athleticism, but Mr.Barnes is off his rocker.

    No, it means sports are yet to be developed which can showcase female athletic superiorities.

    Don't you guys think most WTA women have better backhands than Karlovic?

    Please read again the exact words you yourself wrote. Very carefully.

    _____________________

    BTW, in this thread I seem to see a line of thought about men playing better (different, better quality?) tennis.
    Funny that few of you guys wrote in one of my threads that tennis is genderless, and criticized my quest for females' opinion on tennis equipment.
    So, is tennis played differently? If so, why do I have to suffer in silence when I am told "watch Federer", if I will never hit like him, and instead get my female Pro, and follow female role model?
