      To which woman?! I don’t think it can be argued that in general men are superior to women!

      I guess i’m the second woman to answer this question. Men are not far superior to women, but I think what you are referring to is performance in sport(?). Men tend to have more muscle mass than women so tend to have faster serves in tennis, or times on the track. However I think if men and were allowed to compete against one another this difference would even out.

      There are of course some sporting events that women are naturally better than men at, such as ultra distance events. This is because of the difference in fat stores between men and women that is required in ultra endurance events.

      Before men get carried away because we can often run faster and lift heaver things though, we should remember parthenogenesis – if humans evolve this way, we won’t be needed!
