  • Some men are physically stronger than some women. You can't say that *all* men are stronger because that would be silly (and wrong). Some women work out a lot so that makes them physically stronger than some men, but in general men have bigger muscles than women, so most are stronger. I think the best way to decide would be a good old arm-wrestling contest, or bench-pressing if you have access to a gym.
  • Not neccesarily. But in general, yes, men are generally...physically stronger by nature.
  • Men are "designed" to be stronger. The woman is "designed" to be the nurturer, The man is the protecter and the woman raises the young... Our bones and muscles are designed for that... Now if you are talking meaner?? Ever see a female protect her young? Don't get in between that!!
  • when comparing average man to average woman: the man is physically stronger because that is the way he is built. when it comes to handling emotions such as pain (like when giving birth) I give women credit.
  • When God created humankind, He had the brilliant idea of separating "mankind" into two quite different sexes, each with a higher level of the abilities they would need. For most women, bulging muscles, great speed and super-fast reactions would be wasted muscle and nervous development. For most men, working outside of the home and having to function as its provider and defender, such characteristics were far more important than deep emotional empathy. Then God brought the two back together to form an even greater unit than before. Both are equally necessary, and, like a lock and key, neither is better than the other. Just different.
  • Men are stronger than women in general. But, size matters. I happen to be married to a wonderful women who is about 70 pounds heavier than me. This fact turned out to be a fantastic turn-on over the years. After getting married, we started some playful wrestling and I was surprised to learn that my wife was far stronger than me. Once she got the advantage of pinning me, there was no way for me to turn the tables on her. At first this was disheartening to me. I was secretly embarrassed, although we laughed together. I feared that she would tell our friends of her accomplishment and my diminished manhood. It took me a long time to accept the facts. Now, I look forward to actually trying to beat her when we play-wrestle every now and then. It is a very erotic experience each and every time and, I am enjoying this. Her being able to over-power me is a secret between the two of us. My wife promised that she would never reveal this to anyone. So far, so good.
  • Ok some words from a man :-) Men produce a LOT more testosteron than women, that's why they call testosteron 'the male hormone'. Testosteron increases the mass of your muscles and is behind the facial hair and male voice.. and most of all: increases your libido a lot, this explains why (most) men want sex so bad. It also makes you more competetive: men always want a nicer/better car than their friends for example. The fact is that men are physically stronger, I think men are in average 30 to 40% PHYSICALLY stronger than women. Also women aren't built to be physically as active as men (i don't mean sex ;-) ) I mean the construction of their body, they have breasts for example, they can be in the way and are fragile.. not really a good thing when wrestling with evil beasts outside the cave where your family is ;-) (during the evolution) The reason why women are getting older than men in average, i think, is because men still do the heavy lifting jobs, your body will break down faster that way. MENTALLY men are more aggressive than women.. I think that happened during the evolution because they always had to fight and protect the females and children. It is also the society in all countries that want a man to be very tough and don't show emotions such as crying.. women eager to talk about their problems, men try to keep it for themselves. Talking about your problems is very important, if you don't do it while your problems pile up it will explode someday. Women are wiser on this point. In the history most of the greatest inventions were done by men.. i don't think it's because men are way smarter than women. The intelligence of men and women are equal! (both sexes have dumb and smart ones). The reason because of this is that men are physically stronger than women and supressed women: do what i say, raise the kids, cook and clean etc instead of discovering new things. I am happy that men in the current western society are seeing women as equals, tho there are still some problems. But give women a fair chance and the world will be a lot better.. only testosteron in the government led to many wars in the past.. women have the right to vote and be elected, 1st american FEMALE president.. can't wait to see that :-) Germany already made the step. I don't care who's stronger.. we are all humans and should work together for peace, and a safe world to raise kids without having to fight :-) And men and women simply CAN'T live without eachother.
  • A saying i love is "the female of the species is more deadly than the male!" :)
  • Physically, I guess they're designed to be. You wouldn't guess it when you look at my parents, though -- my stepfather looks like a pale slug, and my mom, well, she trains horses...
  • men and women are both compatible. i am only 14 years old but for my age i have been told i am rather strong. the only reason i have come on here is because i wanted to go to a under 18 club, for one of my best friends birthday party. then i came in here i went to study on how men and women are alike in stronger ways. i have proven many point to my father but he has not concidered what i have been saying. on the onther hand niether have i but i have took in what he has told me. i no what i am doing but also i am just going to get to the point that men and women are all the same just work out in different ways any women now-a-days think going to the gym is swetty and smelly that is one of the main reasons women dont go. but still men and women are equal, either way men may be taller and abit bigger then women but that is nothing it is not about that i am just trying to prove apoint to ALL men that because it anonys every women when a men goes round saying they are stronger. that is not the atticude in this life time. WE AINT IN THE STONE AGES NO MORE!!! men need to get that in to there hand and stop playing action men and using use women as barbies.
  • Some men are stronger than some women, and some women are stronger than some men.
  • I think that potentially they are stronger physically as in muscular. You don't really see women manual labors around trying to dig giant holes and cart enormous pieces of concrete around. (I got this idea because my house landscape is being done right now and there is an earthquake inside because 3 MEN are working trying to do something that no one really knows). I think generally women have more will power. Especially at an earlier age. It always seems as though men are more prone to sexy women than women to sexy men. Maybe it's just me...
  • I take a power class at the gym where we lift weights in class and I am the weakest in the class and the only man. Now, I have just started and don't anticipate remaining that way, but there are a couple of ladies in the class that I am sure I will not catch!
  • in what way?
  • Physically - I think they tend to be stronger than women. Emotionally - I think women are often stronger. And most of the men I've known don't have nearly as high of a pain threshhold as women do.
  • Physically yes. Emotionally-- no way, pedro!
  • Women are proportionally stronger in upper body strength
  • Only physically.
  • Physically, yes. The majority of men are stronger than women. I'm not sure it's the same thing for intelligence....
  • i think women r stronger then men in phiscal and amotional ways But men r a tiny bit only tiny bit stronger
  • It takes alot of strength to carry a kid in my opinion. Maybe they're both strong in their own ways? that's why we compliment eachother :)
  • I think that is irrefutable that most men are physically stronger than women. But I think most women have a stronger stress/pain threshold. Afterall, they have to push something the size of a cantalope out something the size of grapefruit (with dialation, of course) Tell me boys, does that sound like a hell of a good time to you?
  • Physically-yes. Mentally-Not all people are the same..
  • i think they can be the same but average people men strength women mind
  • I think women are more stronger because my friend told me that if the wife die, man will live only about 5 or 10 years. However, if it was opposite,women will live more than 10 years. I also think that men,they feel more dependent while women are more independent. Even though,men are physically stronger, I think that women are more stronger in psychological way.
  • This is much too dangerous a question to answer
  • While I loathe to make generalizations, on a whole men are physically stronger than women. (Gasp I must be a sexist!) It's the way evolution spit us out, men just build muscle mass easier and generally weigh more. This is not to say that some women can't be just as strong (if not stronger) than some men. But rather on a whole it's not the case.
  • Studies show that men are NOT stronger than women! In fact, from birth males are more "fragile" and actually start out weaker than a female. More boys die before birth than girls, females are known to live longer, and boys tend to lag behind developmentally. Anotomically (except the genitals of course) males and females are built the same...with females able to devolop the same amount of muscle mass as males. If you had a boy who did the same exact workout as a girl (same height and same build as one another) their results would be the same. Our culture teaches us that men are stronger and so women take to their roles and agree with it, but it's just not true. Most women feel it is not "sexy" to be as muscular or as strong as a man, so they aren't because of personal choice and culture.
  • LATEST RESEARCHES SHOW THAT MEN ARE PHYSICALLY STONGER THAN WOMEN. IT MADE THEM TO DOMINATE. MEN HAVE AN I.Q OF 5 POINTS MORE THAN WOMEN. HENCE WE FIND THAT MOST OF THE INVENTORS AND DISCOVERES ARE MEN. ON THE OTHER HAND, WOMEN HAVE THE GREATER MEMORY POWER THAN MEN. HENCE THEY CAN REMEMBER EVEN SMALL THINGS OF THE PAST. MEN ARE SCIENTIFIC IN NATURE AND WOMEN ARE VERBAL IN NATURE. HOWEVER THE THOUGHT OF MEN AND WOMEN ARE DIFFERENT. HENCE WE SAY, MEN ARE FROM MARS; WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS.
  • It depends of what sort of sample you take. For example, Laila Ali is definitely stronger than Richard Simmons.
  • Men are stronger because: (1) They generally have greater muscle mass than women. (2) They have better muscle quality than women, with a greater proportion of power-related fibres and greater fibre density. This appears to be much more important to strength than lean muscle mass. (Don't believe me? I've seen a skinny 5 foot tall chinese guy with nothing but sinewy muscle over his bones consistently destroy a body builder type twice his size.) Both points are related to testosterone, and probably due to genetic factors. In women, muscle strength is more a direct index of their weight, and serves more to maintain posture and stability of the body frame when upright rather than for application of power/leverage as in the male.
  • Physically men are stronger. Mentally women are stronger
  • By nature or by research studies Men have an IQ of 5 points more than women. Men (physically weak or strong) dominate Women very easily. It is only men who wrote all religious epics in the world. Hence most of the world is patriachal. On the other hand, Women brain works on both sides. The brain of women has more neurons than in Men. Hence they have more memory power than men. Both have their own specialities. Men and Women are like Positive and Negative charge in an electricity. Often, the arrogancy in Men is cooled by the love of Women. Hence both equal and important.
  • Physically, I think men are stronger. Although, I've met some wimps in my time!
  • NO! I am stronger then my bro and bro in law lol God knows why ! :P
  • On avarage, yes. Though I must be an exception to that!
  • physically men are stronger than women and mentally women are.
  • My wife is a badass. She may not lift as much weight as I but her punches are stronger. She's been a boxer since she was very young, and has far more endurance than I. I loved sparring with her in Karate. Also when we were still in the Army together she did more push-ups and FAR more sit-ups than I on our PT tests. The only event I "beat" her in was the run.
  • Comparing men and women weight to weight, men are MUCH stronger physically. Testosterone make muscles harder and able to contract more strongly. Although SOME women are stronger than SOME men, it may be due to body training or that the woman is just larger than the man. Think of the skinny, henpecked milquetoast and his belligerent, ample, domineering wife.
  • I think Physically men are stronger, they're the ones who protect their and provide for their family. I think women like strong men who will look out for them and support them - but i think it's nice to open up sometimes too! Women are stronger mentally, you need a lot of patience and emotional control to go through labour. women raise the children and make them who they are, if there's a good mother, the chances are she's got a good child.
  • depends on how you judge strength. I dont have the strenght or fortitude to carry an 7lbs baby for months then push that big child out through a small opening. First contraction id be screaming "Gimme drugs!"
  • Physically, certainly. Emotionally, not so much. These are general terms and not meant for all men or all women.
  • physically some are....emotionally about equal
  • physically they are...not emotionally.
  • Depends. Some women are really freakin strong.
  • Men are naturally more physical than women, though there are always exceptions, for some guys can be beat to a pulp by a girl and some girls are just extreme tom boys that work out like jocks. In the end, it is not a competition, for women have the wiles to manipulate men, who know nothing more than weights!
  • In every single Olympic weightlifting category, the men's world record is significantly higher than the women's. In the most extreme category, for the "snatch" event, the best performing man lifted over 70 kilograms more than the best performing woman.
  • men generally posses more sheer strength than women yes, although every one is different, everyone has different pain thresholds also, you could have a very skinny gil withstand more pain then a very well built man, hence some people pass out during tattoos , pain threshold has nothing to do with strength , for raw body mass , men " generally" have an advantage yes
  • Depends -- my mom's definetely stronger than probably any guy I know.
  • Well an average woman could be stronger than a very weak man. Not every guy is average. Some guys are pretty smallish and some women are pretty darned big. If a woman outweighs me by over 50 lbs, and she isnt obese, there is no question she is stronger.
  • Physically they do have the greater potential for having large muscle mass.
  • I don't know. Send me some women to mud wrestle and we'll see who comes out on top.
  • Most of the time.
  • generally speaking, men are stronger physically. but woman are stronger emotionally and stuf like that :D
  • Some women are really big! Sometimes I stand mext to a woman who will make me feel very meek. Once, I lost an arm wrestling match to a woman! I was fairly small built and she was built like a tank and limbs the size of a tree trunk. She almost broke my arm. So yeah, men are generally stronger, but there are no absolutes.... However, we are just talking about the muscle department. Overall, women are stronger than men. They have more endurance and therefore enhanced longevity. Emotionally women are clearly stronger and my opinion they are intellectually. S0 getting back to the old question on what gender is overall superior? It is the female
  • in some things, but we're stronger in others.
  • Most of the times. My 2 cents.
  • Men generally have more muscles than men and are 'stronger' in that way, but women are known for their endurance and can be stronger in that sense. We each have our strengths, that's what makes us s great team.
  • women and men are both human, therefore both are worth the same. sure there are tthings at which either women or men excel, but we all have a place in the world.
  • Men and Women are equal but opposite. They are like + and - charges in electricity. Men are stronger physically and women are stronger in emotions. Men are symbol of aggressiveness and sacrifice and Women are symbol of love and emotions.Men have more IQ and hence it is easy to tempt a woman. Women have more memory power and hence they can remember even small things that Men cannot remember. Men seek comfort from Women, but Women seek protection from Men. It is the duty of Men to protect Women. The fact is that, none is superior than the other. Which of the following are superior? Peacock or Swan?
  • i think if you put the same size man and women together in a fight theres a possibility that either one of em can win.
  • Depends on what you mean by strength. In terms of physical strength your average man is stronger than the average woman. The situations in which that matters are severely limited. Emotionally, intellectually, etc., women are every bit as strong as men and the differences they bring can be a significant asset to a team.
  • It depends on the man... and the woman you are comparing!!!
  • in what sense? i feel as though women and men are equal and equally strong in both respects. it just depends what one is looking for.. i want a strong man ...but i want him to want a strong woman who will take care of and love him and make him stronger. i believe a strong woman makes a man stronger
  • Women are emotionally stronger and Men are physically stronger. Men are more aggressive than Women. Women have more memory power than Men; Men have more I.Q of 5 points more than Women. Men are speculative and Women are verbal. Both Memory power and Intelligence are equally important. Hence Men and Women are equally stronger, but opposite to each other.
  • Men are USUALLY physically stronger then women, but not always and women are USUALLY stronger when it comes to raising and taking care of a family.
  • Women are stronger on a mental & emotional level, than men. When it comes to the physical nobody can out shine a man...for the most part, but I've met exceptions...
  • Not always. There are many women who are stronger both physically and mentally, than some men :)
  • I think the average man is stronger than the average woman, and I think the strongest man is stronger than the strongest woman. Obviously, some women are stronger than some men, but I think the closest you'll get to a real answer (not counting "depends").
  • Thats like comparing a watermelon to a muffin. Men and women have different variations in muscle that would make it difficult to say which one is stronger.
  • physically- yes mentally- no
  • Well twenty years ago, a woman(who was somewhat bigger than me)hugged me so tightly my ribs were cracking and my feet werent touching the ground. So sure men are generally stronger, but my experience shows that some women can be stronger than some men.
  • In what sense?
  • mens muscles are bigger and stronger. however variation between individuals is vastly greater than the division between the sexes. a woman bigger than me never had a chance with me (not that they wanted one) I do not mind if a chick has the skill to beat me up, but she can not have the sheer brawn.
  • Physically, yes. I think women are the strongest beings on the face of the earth though.
  • Physically, yeah emotionally not a chance
  • I think it depends on the individual so I really can't say.
  • Yes and thats why we need something to cover up our manly smell.
  • i always thought it was in the way you grew up on your strength if you lived in an environment where you had to be tough then it's possible for a woman to be stronger than a man
  • Cause it makes um look more manly.
  • You need to study English. It's "than women," not "then women."
  • don't make me laugh! i know for a fact im stronger then a lot of guys at my school! once i played foot ball against all five of my boy cousins, i won 21 to 7.
  • I dont know about all women but most men are stronger than me!
  • That depends on the situation
  • Who cares?
  • physically yes,mentally no
  • Not all of them are...
  • You should ask the ones that I have beaten up in my time... Those particular men... not so much! It is not true that men are stronger. It is true however that men have natrually superior upper body strength and women have naturally superior lower body strength. That is a fact!
  • I agree with you Mauro, minus the patronization of women. You made some good points, but it wasn't about "men seeing women as equal" but more about men starting to act more like human beings. Yes, men put down women, but alot of that stemeed from their insecurities as men. Yes, men discriminated against women, but not because men were stronger. If that were true, there would still be discrimination. That ENABLED them, but men denied women opportunities because men sometimes are looking for their self-worth as men. Women bring human life into this world, and that helps define as us women. It isn't the ONLY thing we do, but it helps to give us a sense of honor and definition. Earlier matriarchal cultures saw women as "magical" beings because women were able to give birth. When patriarchy came along and destroyed matriarchy, it became about finding something men do that is equally pure, exclusive to men and essential. They had to deny women to try to find this. When they couldnt' find it, they chose to demean women. Their physical strength enabled them to oppress women, but women are strong too. But men don't "sorta" give birth. That's the difference. And yes, now women see men as their equals. At least, we try.
  • every guy i know is stronger than me, so i'm assuming the general answer to this question is yes.
  • Yup, mentally and physically. If a woman thinks she is stronger, she is wrong. The only times she is...is when the man isnt a man. That is why...we are women.
  • Jesus christ, of course men are stronger generally. Do people have such a hard time accepting this? I can easily see a man is psychically stronger than a women. Men are created this way. This is also why men and not women have fought in wars since the dawn of time. We are more mentally and physically built to handle more tough jobs. We are more built to dominate and fight. It's simple, just look at our cousin the chimpanzes. The males rape the females and go out to war with the other chimp groups. They are a violent example of the male species.
  • And have you ever bothered to compare fight between women and men. You see that a man usually punches with strenght to make his victim bleed fast. While women push eachother and bitchslap :P
  • In general, men are physically stronger than women----that's a fact. But to use the word "stronger" when applying to different characteristics, that's arbitrary. There are more differences between individuals than between the sexes, and some women are stronger than men in different areas, and some men are stronger than women in different areas.
  • +5. Yes so they get to lift heavy things,defend me when someone wants to break in, take out the trash, kill bugs and open jars. I am glad you guys are such he men.
  • Physically, most men are stronger than women, as we all know. What is not as widely known is that women are stronger mentally and psychologically than a man, and that is proven research. A woman also will survive longer in the elements than a man, and also survives birth better than a man. All proven research for aforesaid comments.
  • Not in all cases. I can do things most men can do. I guess living with a single parent I have adapted to be able to do a variety of things.
  • this is a loaded question
  • Physically - yes. Emotionally - perhaps not. Tolerance to physical pain - no.
  • for all you people who say that men are weaker than women mentally and emotionally-mentally, men have an average iq 4-6 points higher than women, emotionally- women cry 4 times more than men on average, suffer from depression more than men, and are more prone to commit self harm or suicide, you see men are designed to be the more expendable gender biologically and, with a single Y-chromosome, the species' primary platform for natural selection (hence the higher instance of both genius and idoicy among males) whereas women are designed more to ensure the survival of the species as whole, with their better health and relative response to famine and exposure.
