This isn't even debatable....look at all the skyscrapers, look at the magnificent architecture in our world today. It took incredible strength and determination, along with smarts to build those.

All of the great scientific discoveries, the cures, vaccines, the moon landing, etc.

There's not any woman who had any hand in any of that

Name 5 successful nation-leading women of today. It can't be done. Checkmate

Your entire argument is invalid. Where, exactly, did you find this information? For example, you so ignorantly credit men with building magnificent architecture and skyscrapers. Ever heard of the One World Trade Center? You know, only the tallest building in the U.S. and the seventh tallest building in the world. That also happened to be designed by Nicole Dosso, a woman. Coincidentally, she was the one who did all the work while the original architects, David Childs and Daniel Libeskind, bickered like children over the tower's design. Interesting, right? And the great scientific discoveries that were apparently all made by men? You forgot about Leslie Thompson's breakthroughs on Huntingtons Disease, Rachel Carson's discoveries on lethal pesticides that saved hundreds of lives, Gertrude Elion, who designed the first Leukemia treatment, JoAnn Morgan, an engineer who played a crucial part in the moon landing, and many others. "There's not any woman who had a hand in any of that" Really? What was your final challenge? Nation leading women? Alright then. Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil, Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt of Denmark, President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner of Argentina, and Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller of Jamaica. Five nation leaders. Now was that so hard? If that argument was supposed to be a "checkmate", as you called it, you might want to practice some chess. And yes, I realize this is an old comment. But it's still very, very false. I believe in gender equality, but reading comments like this makes me wonder why people ever believed men were superior.

I myself and a woman and 100% believe men are superior. I am without a doubt in full support of gender roles. Men are far superior mentally and especially physically. Women are not built to cope with demands and roles that a male is meant to fulfill. As far as history dates back, women gather and care for, men hunt and protect, it has worked that way for centuries, and I don't understand why women felt the need to protest for equal rights. It takes the importance from a man's role and demeans him to being the equivalent of a woman, which is a blunt insult. Even in school yard days 'hitting like a girl' has always been an insult, and I firmly believe it still is. Femininity represents being fragile and delicate, what is intimidating about it, and why taint that view? Women would be far more desirable if they acted like what they were, rather than trying to constantly compare with the male strength, agility, and intelligence. If women wanted to be treated equal, why don't we throw them into the fronts of combat in Iraq? Then we will see how well they match up to men.

Women should be staying home, and taking care of their children and husbands, as it always has been. I, personally, would be 100% happy conforming to the stereotype that is woman, and keeping my damn ass in the kitchen.

Emberrr,

I generally disagree with your premise that men are superior, but I don't think your ideas are faulty.

Frankly, the question's scope is a lot of the problem.

Do you want to open pickle jars or move heavy things? Do you want to invent or innovate? Do you want to build pyramids, bridges, skyscrapers? Do you want somebody to go out into a dangerous environment and risk life and limb to help or protect or provide for those at home? Then most (not all) of the time, a man is the superior choice.

However, do you want to turn sex into a baby? Do you want somebody to care for that baby until it can chew its own food? Do you want to motivate men to do all of the things they are capable of? If so, you absolutely need a woman.

Doug Stanhope (the comedian) observed that the reason guys bothered to do all of the hard and dangerous things that brought modern civilization and its accoutrements into being is that they were trying to get laid. I think it is a little more than that. They were also trying to make life better or more secure for their families, primarily for their women and children.

Men are far superior mentally and especially physically.

Mentally: SOMETIMES. The bell curve for male intelligence is far wider than that for women. We do not cluster toward the mean to as great a degree. That means men tend to be either smarter or dumber than women. Sure, there are more male geniuses, but there are also more male idiots. (Just watch YouTube for an hour; you will see what I mean.)

Women tend to cluster toward the mean, with fewer geniuses and fewer morons. As Camille Paglia observed, "There is no female Mozart because there is no female Jack the Ripper."

Regarding physical strength, testosterone is the big differentiator. Absolutely there are a lot of women who are stronger than a lot of men, but there are also a lot of men who are stronger than ALL women. We will see how that changes with the current generation of men who have MUCH lower testosterone levels than 30 years ago.

Femininity represents being fragile and delicate

I think you are misstating your case. Fragile and delicate cannot deal with the severe physical trauma of pregnancy and childbirth. I'm just sayin'.

There is however a pretty big distinction in how male and female durability and weakness manifest. Men's egos and self-esteem are a weakness to a degree that most women do not have. The vast majority of suicides are men. As men are increasingly treated as unnecessary or even inherently toxic, that number is increasing drastically. Men in general need women to need us, need our families to need us, and we need to be appreciated for the sacrifices we make and the work we do.

That is where the fragile and delicate aspect of women fits into the whole thing. However annoyed we might be at having to put down the remote control, men NEED to be asked to open the pickle jar, or do hard things that our women cannot do. That is where the meaning in our lives comes from. We just need our value to be acknowledged.

Without women being what you are, men won't bother to be what we are, and we won't aspire to being what we can be. That is what is happening with MGTOW.

So you think we:

Should stay at home like a french housewife?

Shouldn't do IB physics or maths at higher?

Shouldn't do Jiu Jitsu?

Shouldn't smile when a man makes a derogatory comment and say 'I could kick your ass twenty shades of purple before you put a finger on me'?

Hitting like a girl? You haven't met a female blackbelt.

"Women would be far more desirable if they acted like what they were, rather than trying to constantly compare with the male strength, agility, and intelligence."

Who cares about being desirable?

Sorry Elvira, your argument has way too many flaws, particularly with respect to the fact that you are citing extreme cases of impressive talent, capability, etc found only in a few women, or groups of women, and extrapolating those small percentages to make a suggestive claim that either most or all women have those same impressive capabilities. For example, your reference to the female black belt may be true... But how many female black belts are out there REALLY? As many as men?? Highly doubt it. And who would throw a harder punch between a male and female blackbelt?? Or between your average untrained man and woman?? Sorry, but the man will always deliver a harder punch in comparison to the women equivalent with respect to each other's level of training/experience in whatever martial arts you are referring to..... HENCE THE REASON, why the phrase "hitting like a girl" has been engrained into the global culture, with women rarely ever seeming phased or upset when this insult is used... Because it is entirely true; the expression would not have become so popular if it had no valid truth behind it.

And I have no idea where anyone ever made the claim on this page that states that it is okay for a man to say that they could beat a woman "20 shades of blue" with relative ease to her face. Although this is a relatively true generalization due to the sheer physical strength differences between the sexes, that does not mean that is in any way an acceptable thing to do. So for you to pull this claim out of thin air to try to bolster your other half assed, sub par debate points that you have raised while simultaneously attempting to undermine any reasonable and logical argument raised by a man by making us look like violent animals is good tactic... But any half wit can see right thru it.

Nice try tho!

Were you ever in a math class where a woman got an A and a guy got an F? Happened at some point right. How about the other way around.

There's also no logic behind your statement.

Side: Men are superior to Women

A) Men have accomplishments… so do women. The fact that men have accomplishments does not make them superior.

B) Thomas Edison actually did not make the lightbulb. He simply perfected and then patented technology that others created. Nikola Tesla should actually get a lot more credit than Edison does. But again, that doesn't make men superior than women. Most of the reasons these accomplishments were primarily done by men were because men forced women to stay removed from sciences and politics. The fact that men have accomplishments proves nothing.

I'm going to argue for neither because for every broad stereotype I've heard of, there are counterexamples that I've seen. For example:

Women:

Hillary Clinton is a women

a lot of prostitutes are also women

Men:

Barack Obama is a man

a lot of homeless people are men

Case closed. For either of these stereotypes to work they have to be definite. One counterexample on both ends, and the stereotype is wrong. Get on smart and one dumb woman OR one smart and one dumb man and the whole debate becomes stupid.

It has to depends on whether how you define superior but overall women are superior to men.

Men's strength are only physically whereas women have a strong inner strength. Imagine this, both women and men has a company....but during economy crisis, both had to closed their business but who will have the strength to restart the business? Women! Their inner strength are stronger compare to men which gave them the ability to go through such pain to give birth....

Besides, if you read world wide history, there's this queen from Mesir Purba or now known as Egypt who has helped developed the country in order for the to expand their agriculture.

Compare the female powers to the men. Did women build goverment? Did women build the pyramids? Did women do really anything before the 1900's?

Really. What did women do at all. Invent the bra? Good effort girls. Invent something for your own personal gain, and then continuously complain about how self centered men are. You have got to be kidding me.

If it weren't for women, men would forget that the world was a circle and not flat. Women are more superior because without us their would be no reproduction and the world would eventually end. Without women, diseases, illnesses, taxes, or any other thing would be left unsolved because someone with a different mind set would be missing. If there are two people with the same mindset then the same thing would be repeated and no one would get anywhere. Women are especially unique because we increase the world and keep new things and people coming.

Equality.

Although women are naturally more intelligent, looking at my old school prospectus, more females got As than males, and there was a really big divide, about fifty. Males did get more As in maths, but this was outweighed by female preformance in sciences, literature, foreign language and drama.
