I believe females do , they have kids . When a man is sick hes a baby and needs to be taken care of , but let the woman be sick, you still have to take care of your normal daily thing

which pain are you talking about?? Physical or mental. I believe females are better at handling physical pain but males are better at handling mental pain.

You have a point, but are men handling mental pain or disassociating and denying?

Men compartmentalize. This can be beneficial in some ways and a detriment in other ways. I once had it described to me like this...Men have different rooms in their brain to store different events,feeling, thoughts, etc. Women's brains are like a bowl of spaghetti. All intertwined. It's certainly not scientific, but it seems to hold true in many cases. My overall vote is that women are definitely stronger in all aspects. They just seem to be able to handle more. Just ask a man to switch places with a woman for a day and see what happens. It would make for great comic relief

Women! I've had three children, all natural at home, and I can't imagine any man going through the pain of childbirth without loosing it!

Surprisingly, women do. My step-dad does tatoo's and women seriously can take the pain much better then most men.

I haven't been through child birth, but I know my husband wouldn't be able to handle it. Men definantly have it easy. Just think what we have to go through once a month. They would die with that.
