Nice video, iacas. It's Always (ha!) a good idea to remember that our words sometimes carry meaning that we don't intend.

From cooking all the way to scientific discoveries to sports and a lot of things in between. What I'm not saying is that every man is better, as there are women better than men specifically, but not in general no.
Ok, so how soon before this thread is locked? :)
I don't disagree. I can remember in college in a literature class when my favorite professor (a man) said that we would not be reading any female writers from the particular time period because they weren't up to snuff. The reason? Because they just weren't as educated as men, nor had the same varied life experiences as men from which to draw their inspiration. And that's a fair argument.
Men have always been allowed to excel because they have always been expected to excel. Whereas women have almost always been expected to get a husband, have babies, keep a home. And were taugh the skills needed for those things, and those things alone. And that leaves women with a whole lot of catching up to do in the grand course of history. The mistake is in thinking that women are incapable of being better or as good as men at different things and forgetting that, historically, women just haven't been allowed or encouraged to do certain things. These days we can't say that as much, but it still leaves women catching up.
As for athletics specifically, men and women are different and there is no reason to pretend we aren't.
