I would argue that these physical advantages make them moar of a woman, and waaay less manly.

I assume you're talking about T&A sizes.


Mmmmmm, boobies....

Fuck it, why even separate based on gender at all? I proposed one giant league that anyone and everyone is allowed to compete in. I'd call it the "what the fuck do I know anyway" league. It will be glorious.

Correct, their genetic make up decides that. But we shouldn't go by that either?

i don't have a formed opinion about the topic at hand, but i did want to throw in that this is such horseshit. Y chromosomes don't make anyone incapable of empathy or of being able to extrapolate what a situation might be like for another human being. we ask men all the time to see it from our side; when they do, maybe give them the benefit of the doubt. right or wrong, don't write them off because they have a penis.

This has nothing to do with having a penis and everything to do with being a man in this society. Those are not the same thing.

I am happy when men try to understand what women go through. What I am not happy with are men saying what they would do if they were a woman.

How many times do I have to hear a man say what he would do in a certain situation, when they have NONE of the baggage that comes with being a woman?

From a strictly scientific point of view your XY, XX chromosomes decides if you are male or female. From a social point of view a person may not identify with whatever cards they were dealt, that's fine and that is something that should be respected and dealt with. But to totally ignore that their is a difference...

I don't understand, who is ignoring the differences? I am acknowledging them and comparing them to cis women who have advantages (Taller, shorter, faster metabolism, etc).

Okay, but the variation of strength, muscle building ability within a sex is not nearly as great as the variation between the sexes. The two aren't comparable.

it's the beginning of a dialogue if we ladies could respond to it as such and not with the full force of the chips on our shoulders.

i bet there are women in the field who feel differently than you do about this issue. i think dave put forth a valid portrait of what that might look like. your baggage isn't everyone's baggage. i would encourage you to put yours down and maybe look at it from a different angle. you don't have to buy it, but it's not complete crap.
