NO COMMENTS, my wife is in the room :-l

I think GM just hit the nail on the head. Check out Article Discussion "Why Women Will Always Have the Upper Hand…Unless YOU Do Something About It!"

If you look at the word "Wo-Man" it has a "Man" inside it to make it Whole, enough said........
That should get a bite, lol.

Come on Fiona give everyone both barrels

They both can do better in life if they work hand in hand, as they both think and work in diffrent ways.

@ BadJoker- lol
My dad told me long long ago, ''Men are simple things. They can survive a whole weekend with only three things beer, toilet and a tv remote''

The Big Fish Should Come Biting Later Today, lol

BadJoker, you're trying to get a rise. It doesn't work like that.

Is does at my place!!!


That's not even a sentence. And you don't put a space between the word and a question mark. I think that answers the (poorly written) question.

I was just about to write the same thing when I saw your post Fi!

I like what Charlotte Whitton had to say:
"Whatever women do, they must do twice as well as me to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult!"

And unfortunately that's true. If you substitute the word 'me' with the word 'men' - haha.

Thank's Fi. My typing and my eyesight is even worse!


i dont think you can judge this as a whole, we need a set it up as a point system to judge this and great man just put us on -1.


Actually, -2. Your team lost points for his moniker, too. Pffft!!


10 Big Differences Between Men’s and Women’s Brains By Amber Hensley I found this from Masters of Healthcare (website) its a good one. http://www.mastersofhealthcare.com/blog/2009/10-big-differences-between-mens-and-womens-brains/ The differences between women and men are not only well-documented, but frequently at the heart of jokes, anecdotes, and good-natured (and not so good-natured) ribbing. Experts have discovered that there are actually differences in the way women’s and men’s brains are structured and in the way they react to events and stimuli. So the next time your wife, boyfriend, or parent starts telling you how you should have done something differently, then refer back to these big differences between men’s and women’s brains. 1. Human relationships. Women tend to communicate more effectively than men, focusing on how to create a solution that works for the group, talking through issues, and utilizes non-verbal cues such as tone, emotion, and empathy whereas men tend to be more task-oriented, less talkative, and more isolated. Men have a more difficult time understanding emotions that are not explicitly verbalized, while women tend to intuit emotions and emotional cues. These differences explain why men and women sometimes have difficulty communicating and why men-to-men friendships look different from friendships among women. 2. Left brain vs. both hemispheres. Men tend to process better in the left hemisphere of the brain while women tend to process equally well between the two hemispheres. This difference explains why men are generally stronger with left-brain activities and approach problem-solving from a task-oriented perspective while women typically solve problems more creatively and are more aware of feelings while communicating. 3. Mathematical abilities. An area of the brain called the inferior-parietal lobule (IPL) is typically significantly larger in men, especially on the left side, than in women. This section of the brain is thought to control mental mathematical ability, and probably explains why men frequently perform higher in mathematical tasks than do women. Interestingly, this is the same area of Einstein’s brain that was discovered to be abnormally large. The IPL also processes sensory information, and the larger right side in women allows them to focus on, "specific stimuli, such as a baby crying in the night." 4. Reaction to stress. Men tend to have a "fight or flight" response to stress situations while women seem to approach these situations with a "tend and befriend" strategy. Psychologist Shelley E. Taylor coined the phrase "tend and befriend" after recognizing that during times of stress women take care of themselves and their children (tending) and form strong group bonds (befriending). The reason for these different reactions to stress is rooted in hormones. The hormone oxytocin is released during stress in everyone. However, estrogen tends to enhance oxytocin resulting in calming and nurturing feelings whereas testosterone, which men produce in high levels during stress, reduces the effects of oxytocin. 5. Language. Two sections of the brain responsible for language were found to be larger in women than in men, indicating one reason that women typically excel in language-based subjects and in language-associated thinking. Additionally, men typically only process language in their dominant hemisphere, whereas women process language in both hemispheres. This difference offers a bit of protection in case of a stroke. Women may be able to recover more fully from a stroke affecting the language areas in the brain while men may not have this same advantage. 6. Emotions. Women typically have a larger deep limbic system than men, which allows them to be more in touch with their feelings and better able to express them, which promotes bonding with others. Because of this ability to connect, more women serve as caregivers for children. The down side to this larger deep limbic system is that it also opens women up to depression, especially during times of hormonal shifts such as after childbirth or during a woman’s menstrual cycle. 7. Brain size. Typically, men’s brains are 11-12% bigger than women’s brains. This size difference has absolutely nothing to do with intelligence, but is explained by the difference in physical size between men and women. Men need more neurons to control their greater muscle mass and larger body size, thus generally have a larger brain. 8. Pain. Men and women perceive pain differently. In studies, women require more morphine than men to reach the same level of pain reduction. Women are also more likely to vocalize their pain and to seek treatment for their pain than are men. The area of the brain that is activated during pain is the amygdala, and researchers have discovered that in men, the right amygdala is activated and in women, the left amygdala is activated. The right amygdala has more connections with areas of the brain that control external functions while the right amygdala has more connections with internal functions. This difference probably explains why women perceive pain more intensely than do men. 9. Spatial ability. Men typically have stronger spatial abilities, or being able to mentally represent a shape and its dynamics, whereas women typically struggle in this area. Medical experts have discovered that women have a thicker parietal region of the brain, which hinders the ability to mentally rotate objects–an aspect of spatial ability. Research has shown this ability in babies as young as 5 months old, negating any ideas that these abilities were strengthened by environmental influences. 10. Susceptibility to disorders. Because of the way men and women use the two hemispheres of the brain differently, there are some disorders that men and women are susceptible to in different ways. Men are more apt to have dyslexia or other language problems. If women have dyslexia, they are more likely to compensate for it. Women, on the other hand, are more susceptible to mood disorders such as depression and anxiety. While handedness is not a disorder, these brain tendencies also explain why more men are left-handed than are women. Men are also more likely to be diagnosed with autism, ADHD, and Tourette’s Syndrome.

No one, and I mean NO ONE, will actually read the above post.

You're correct Fiona, that's the only post I skipped over coz I'm a man and I've got better things to do than read about how much better we are than women

I think it's safe to saw that everyone on the PLANET has better things to do than read that post...

And by 'saw' I of course mean 'say' - how come we can't edit responses to posts yet GetFrank???

indeed tldr

Actually I did - it's a very interesting article if you actually bother reading it. It's quite neutral and is written with facts and not emotions

as to the question ARE MEN BETTER THAN WOMEN? It's not really sensible to do such comparison - we all know in some areas men do better than women in general but in other areas it's the other way round. No one can come up with a valid argument to say one is better than the other... so shall we just call it a tie??!?


Really hmmmm until they need to be feed and have clean clothes!!!! Or want something else!


Some say men are finished. If that were true we would roll over and go to sleep.


i need to add some testosterone to this discussion.....two words 'of course' this is frank. if we left anything to the fairer sex nothing would get done. case and point the verbal mountainous male montage that ensued above....

What? are you meaning the post by "Great Man"? That he bizarrely found important enough to post... And NO ONE (but you perhaps) bothered to even begin to read? Then your post makes no sense whatsoever. -1 points to your side.

haha...knew someone wouldn't tell i was typing with my random sarcasm font engaged. i was trying obviously unsuccessfully to wave a flag for the three females who bravely enter frank......sorry won't do it again


...considering your forum name Great Man and the fact that you started this particular thread one can assume you must ponder this very thought on a regular basis...lol.......or is it dreaming perhaps?


...Women rule the world....!!
