I know quite a few people who think they are better than their spouces at the sports that they play. In your opinion are men or women better? Some men I have heard say that women should not be allowed to play a "man's" game.. What exactly is a "mans" game? It has been said for years that football and baseball are mens sports... just because there aren't any women leagues currently does not mean that there could not be in the future, and have been in the past. "A League of Their Own" for example was about a womens baseball league that came about when the men of the country and the great sport were off to war.. but when they came back that was it, no more womens league, much later there was a hall dedicated to the women, but there was no trace before that... So what do you think?

I don't really think that is all true, there are some women out there that have a ton of stamina and strenghth. I guess it all depends on who you are. Why do you automatically think that men are stronger? I have know a few men that have gotten their butts beat by girls, and yes they were jocks. Why automatically do you assume they have more stamina? I have seen some pretty fierce women.

coolcat while I respect your opinion I believe you are wrong. The reason boys generally have more stamina or strength is because we lift, and job. Now if you compare us to a girl who does the same amount of lifting, and jogging they will be basically equal.

It isn't decided upon gender. It is 100% due to dedication to the sport. No matter how tall, strong, fast, quick, slow, short, weak, lazy, (etc) you are if you practice hard and dedicate yourself to the sport you will become better than most. Now you may be thinking that being a guy gives you an advantage. Not at all. I am a great player, but there are some girls in my grade that practice 10x more than me and it shows. They come close to beating me. Girls may have a tiny disadvantage going in due to their naturally smaller bodies, but that doesn't mean they can't do what guys can. If they work just as hard as a boy it should be an even match up in a game. The only thing making a difference would be the natural male and female developements. Boys tend to get stronger but that doesn't mean a girl can't get stronger than us. We are generally faster on average but that doesn't mean with speed training they can't be faster than us. Hopefully here I convinced some people that it's not about gender or size, but about heart. A four foot tall girl could out rebound yao ming if she tries hard enough. Thank you.

Well that depends on what you are playing.... I would probably say that men are better at football, hockey, and golf. Women are better at everything else...ha ha ha...Jk
