Are Women, Really The Weaker Sex?

Usually women are known as the weaker sex. May be because men have greater physical strength than women, they are considered as weaker. But there are several other factors that reveal that women are stronger than men. Please continue reading……

Right from the birth: Females are born stronger. Statistics say that more male babies die than female babies. They seem to have higher incidence of illness in their childhood. The survival rate of abandoned female babies is much higher than male babies. In fact most male babies can’t cope with the situation and die while more female babies are able to cope with the difficult situation and survive.

Physical strength: Of course men are physically stronger than women. In general they are taller and bulkier than women. But physical strength alone can’t make a person stronger. There are other elements too such as coping with difficult situations, managing pains etc., that can make one stronger.

Mental strength: In general women seem to have stronger minds than men. They are stronger when it comes to emotions.They can withstand difficult situations much better than men. They can manage worries better than men as they easily cry and vent out their emotions. They also share their problems with others and hence they can manage sorrows better than men.

Pain and sickness: Women seem to have higher pain tolerance. They are able to withstand the terrible pain of child birth. Can men ever go through it? Doubtful, lol. They can manage severe illness better than men. They cope with the critical illness much better than men.

Women can live alone: Many men find it very difficult to live without women. But it seems many women can live without men. They can live without sex for longer periods than men.

Women live longer: Women live longer than men. They have a more powerful immune system than men. More men die of heart attacks than women.

Multitasking ability: Women are very good at multitasking. It is indeed a big gift of nature.

Life after death of spouse:  A London doctor conducted a study on more than 10000 people who lost their spouses. Many men died after a few years of the death of their spouses whereas many women could cope with the loss of their spouses and continued to live normally.

Physical strength has lost its value: Men seem to be physically stronger but women seem to have stronger minds. Gone were the days when physical strength had its importance when man lived in forests and had to use his physical strength to protect himself from wild animals. We are now living in modern world where we have machines, equipments, gadgets to simplify our work. Today brain power is mightier than muscular power.

Summary: Men are physically stronger than women. But women seem to be emotionally stronger. Today physical strength does not have much value. So women are equal to men if not stronger. You can now tell me who is stronger, lol. Thanks for reading.

    I think both male and female are made physically and mentally with their strong areas in different places. No doubt machines have made work easier but God made man before man made machines. I rest my case.

  2. CHIPMUNK Says:

    interseting facts…
    =)

  6. MightyDreamer Says:

    Certainly another way to look a “the battle of the sexes” or the battle about the sexes. Interesting conjecture

  7. bhaswati Says:

    very apt and true, it’s all about strength of mind and not the body, Also another reason for women to be tagged as the weaker sex is the fact that they are more emotional and make their decisions mostly based on their feelings unlike their more practcal counterparts. Good piece.

    hi, bhaswati, you are right that women make decisions based on their feelings. That is a weakness I think.

    Quite an interesting article, vijayanths. One more fact I have read is that women are good at multi tasking. A woman can do more than 1 job at a time whereas men are not able to focus on more than one work at a time…

    Glad to have been born a woman…:)

  16. vijayanths Says:

    You are exactly right Jayashree, In fact I wanted to add that point too but forgot in the end, hehehe.

  17. Likha Says:

    Very true. If I were to live again, I’d still want to be a woman.

  18. vijayanths Says:

    Likha, that is really good I can understand.

  19. Poo in Love Says:

    I must appreciate your respect towards women.
    Not many men, even now, accept women as the ’stronger’ sex (which must have been the title of this amazing article ha ha) but you have done so with admirable ease.
    This is worth sharing on FaceBook.
    Honestly, you have inspired me to pen down a few thoughts of my own likewise.

  20. Craig Myers Says:

    The sexes are equal. They are both created in the image of almighty God.

    Although it is easy to argue the superiority of one sex over the other, should superiority be the basis of one’s validation? I’m glad I’m male and can value male strenghts, but I value the strengths of women as well. We can both learn from each other, and sharpen each other as well.

    This article serves a purpose of showing how easy it is to prove superiority of one group of people over another. I just hope that men will be strong enough to accept the truth and not allow female chauvinism to emasculate them. That takes maturity on their part.

  21. Craig Myers Says:

    Oh, upon second glance at this article, I must disagree on two areas:

    1. Fact: Men have a higher pain threshhold than women. Despite this fact, women can still endure the pain of childbirth. Theoretically, men could endure a similar pain, but let’s face it: God spared men that pain, and so what man would voluntarily want it?

    2. Physical Strength has little value. Huh? Okay, granted a registered nurse earns more than the average male warehouse worker, but your opinion that physical strength has little value clearly shows your ignorance. Who builds the bridges, skyscrapers, highways, and does most of the farm work? Who risks life and limb repairing your automobiles and trucks? Who in the military defends your country so you have the freedom to say ignorant things? I think, even with modern automation, robotics, and computer technology, men’s physical strength still has great value, even if women are making more money these days.

    And no, my ego is not fragile, so don’t even go there (LOL).

    Mrs jayashree kumar women having better multitasking ability doesnt make you anyway superior. You dont have the audeacity to insult male gender. Just because you are powerful in one way doesn’t make you think you are god. Eacg gender has its own strength and weakness. You dont have the right to mock and make fun of others weakness. If you think women are superior in many ways there are many ways even we are superior to you.Take a look at all the olympic records in all the athletic , swimming , weightlifting. Men’s records are much greater than women’s records. It is a scientifically proven fact that male athlets of similar weight training are 40% stronger than their female counterparts. You take it in terms of speed, strength and endurance.Males would certainly outperform females in all elite competitive events. So if you think that women are naturally superior to men in multitasking men are superior to women in physical strength. So stop making fun of other communities, you don’t have the right to insult others feelings

  24. Nikhil shankar Says:

    Mrs poo in love there is nothing like that call stronger or weaker sex, it is peoples way of perceiving things. each gender have their own strength and weakness. We are not gods to define who is stronger and who is weaker. The comment which you have posted as saying as women as greater than men clearly proves that you have no respect for male gender. Who are you to make fun of men and boys.You dont have the right to hurt others feelings.stop making fun of other genders, you dont have the right to do that.
    If you continue to point out men’s weakness then even i will also have to retaliate.

  25. Nikhil shankar Says:

    Mr. vijayanth you have given some informations about women superior to men.you say that females are born stronger just because they have the ability to fight iilness better than men.That does not make them stronger anyway.if you say that as strength even i can also quote many strengths that men have over to women.
    1. on average men have more haemoglobin and red blood cells than women which is the sole responsible factor which makes men gaining greater strength and energy compared to women.
    2. Men have greater aerobic capacity and cardiovascular output than women
    3. Women suffer from more osteoporosis than men.which leads to injuries .
    4. you say that men suffer from more mental depressions than women thats again not true, women also suffer equally from mental deppressions.
