When I said men are stronger in general than women, and that gay men don't count in that equation, I meant they don't count because they are not a big enough percentage of the overall number of men to make a difference in the general characteristic, so even if every one of them is a 98-pound weakling (they're not), it doesn't affect the truth of the overall statement because they are less than 10% of the total. That IS 7th grade math. In other words, the statement "men are stronger in general" is true whether you include gays or not and whether gays are strong or not in general, simply because most men aren't gay. That's what's meant by "don't count". Men are better at logic.
When I said men are physically superior I meant that in general men are stronger, not that being stronger is superior to other physical traits. That was my bad as I said. Women are better at communicating
Let's take the education debate for a moment...since schools have turned very pro girl and started to leave boy's needs out of the equation, girls have begun to excel in subjects at a faster rate than boys. They also graduate more often from college currently. A lot of the problem could be access to edumucation or teaching in a way that is better suited for a boy or girl. Another factor is giving the person a chance to use their edumucation. There are so many darn factors.
Granted, my husband is really good at figuring things out and I really suck at what he's good at but what I am good at he sucks at. This is just us. I would be pretty dumb if I thought that because it applied to us it applied to everyone.
GENERALIZATION ALERT: Men are physically superior but women are emotionally superior. Men are better with objective reasoning and women are better at multi-tasking. Men and women are very much different which actually makes us compatible.
