Man versus Woman

norse_abs.jpg

There is no equality between genders in biology. Millions of years of evolution have made males and females better suited for different roles and activities. When it comes to the essential characteristics of a warrior, females are clearly unsuitable for combat and at a staggering disadvantage when facing men.


MUSCLE STRENGTH

MALES

40% more muscle mass in upper body.
33% more muscle mass in lower body.

FEMALES

35% less muscle mass in upper body.
25% less muscle mass in lower body.


SKELETAL STRENGTH

MALES

Denser and stronger bones. Stronger tendons and ligaments. Minimizes injuries.

FEMALES

Softer and weaker bones. Weaker tendons and ligaments. Increases injuries.


BLUNT FORCE/IMPACT RESISTANCE

MALES

Stronger facial bone structure. Stronger bones. Minimizes injuries.

FEMALES

Weaker facial bone structure. Weaker bones. Increases injuries.


AGGRESSIVITY

MALES

Hypothalmic pituitary testicular axis: 12 times more testosterone. Can demonstrate high aggressivity.

FEMALES

No hypothalmic pituitary testicular Axis: 12 times less testosterone. Lack aggressivity.


WOUND HEALING

MALES

Higher blood red cell count. Higher hemoglobin. Higher circulating clotting factor: Faster wound healing.

FEMALES

Lower blood red cell count. Lower hemoglobin. Lower circulating clotting factor: Slower wound healing.


BLOOD OXYGEN CARRYING CAPACITY

MALES

Testosterone prompts erythropoietin to produce more red blood cells thus increasing o2 carrying capacity.

FEMALES

No triggering of erythropoietin resulting in no increase in red blood cells or 02 carrying capacity.


RESILIENCE TO COLD AND OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS

MALES

More evenly distributed blood flow in body: higher resilience to cold and other environmental factors.

FEMALES

Less evenly distributed blood flow in body: lower resilience to cold and other environmental factors.


REACTIVITY TO PAIN

MALES

Activation of right amygdala of brain: Less reactive to pain.

FEMALES

Activation of left amygdala of brain: More reactive to pain.


DANGER AND SITUATIONAL ANALYSIS

MALES

More white matter in pre-frontal cortex: faster and more efficient danger and situational analysis.

FEMALES

Less white matter in pre-frontal cortex: slower and less efficient danger and situational analysis.


SPACIAL ABILITIES AND VISUALIZATIONS

MALES

Thinner parietal section of brain: Better spacial abilities and better visualization of multidimensional objects.

FEMALES

Thicker parietal section of brain: Worse spacial abilities and worse visualization of multidimensional objects.


REACTIVITY TO EMOTIONS AND DEPRESSION

MALES

Smaller deep limbic system: less reactive to emotions and less prone to depression.

FEMALES

Larger deep limbic system: more reactive to emotions and more prone to depression.


RESPONSE TO THREATS

MALES

Fight or Flight.

FEMALES

Tend and befriend.


TRACKING OF MOVEMENT

MALES

Thicker retinas and larger m cells: Better suited to track movement.

FEMALES

Thinner retinas and more p-cells: less suited to track movement.


SENSITIVITY TO PTSD AND DEPRESSION

MALES

Faster synthesis of serotonin: less likely to suffer from ptsd or depression after traumatic event.

FEMALES

Slower synthesis of serotonin: more likely to suffer from ptsd or depression after traumatic event.


RESPONSE TO FOREIGN CULTURES AND ETHNICITIES

MALES

Response to oxytocin hormone: see competition.

FEMALES

Response to oxytocin hormone: seek kinship.


EMOTIONAL STABILITY

MALES

No pre-menstrual syndrome: no mood swings, no irritability, no fatigue, no food craving, and no depression.

FEMALES

Pre-menstrual syndrome: monthly and irregular mood swings, irritability, fatigue, food craving, and depression.
