Great video for most of the parts but I should point out that this video is oversimplified to meet the "socially acceptable conclusion" with intelligence variation. Going over that topic saying some say that but others criticized it for methodology IS NOT TRUE. Truth is way more complicated than that. First, there are way more numerous studies on that subject backing up the result with IQ in general. Second, it also depends on what kind of ability we are talking about like mathematical ability is more variable in man etc. So, another question is that does IQ testing represent such different aspects of human intelligence with fair weighting. I am strictly against people judging others by their genders rather than their individual qualities. But still, scientific truth should not be distorted to advocate what you believe.
Corpsi just because women are women doesn’t mean they are dumb. Girls or boys can be either smart. Believe me there are a lot of males that are dumb too so don’t you doubt us women. But I certainly agree that what gameitderp said was wrong.

wow so many triggered males. they just can't accept that women are smart for some reason, maybe they are afraid of their own lack of intelligence. anyway men had power over women simply because they were stronger not smarter.

Lol half of this video is just woman empowerment. "Woman are so discriminated against, woman face misogynistic barriers, research universities are rigged against woman" blah blah blah. If an alien race came down and was "what is the superior gender, men or woman?" It's clearly men. idk if that's sexist or just the truth. But physically we're not even comparable, it's not even close, any sport or Olympic routine that the genders compete in, the men are far better. strength, speed, long jump, high jump, swimming, kayaking, soccer, rugby, etc etc. I don't think there's a single sport woman are better than men at. And mentally we're at the top too, in fact any extreme end of success in this world is usually a man. whether is wealth, business, IQ, chess, Rubik's cube, gaming, tactics, etc etc. If you find something you like, and ask yourself "I wonder who the best is at this?" it will usually be a guy, not all the time, but most. At the end of the day if the genders went to war against each other to see who truly was superior, it would be an absolute slaughter. Men would easily destroy 90+% of woman and just keep the other 10% around to procreate. At the top end of anything in life, it is usually a guy. Sorry girls, it's not your fault, it's just the way it is.

It's not about you being a boy or girl. It matters who the person is and rate of learning
NotSamuelEJO (1 day ago)
Simple answer is that guys are dumb around girls because then they can't think about anything else than...well, girls. but otherwise men always win them whamen in intelligence
Idk Everytime we had a class race between genders the Boys have always won Girls might think Boys are dumb but Boys are the type that will seem foolish, but if they have to they will do there best, and that what leads the Boys to winning in every round! You’re only as smart as you think you are.

All world know that boys are better then girls..most of invention by only men..we give respect to women because they are weak..they are not strong physically and mentally..yes i agree 1 women out of 1Million is equally to men because they are out of her category...at last men are far better then women 👉🙄
Calaena (1 day ago)
Being physically strong and being mentally strong are two different things, its true that women are not as physically strong as men, but that doesnt mean that men are also smarter, being bigger isnt being better. Men usually have larger bodies and women usually have larger brains.Neither is better than the other. Also where i grew up i was thought men were idiots who got physical jobs and women were smarter and got office jobs.

Please read to the end! Boys (not all some are decent): men are so much smarter! Me: but one hundred three men preform public shootings while only three females do Boys: hmm point not made Me: women also created the computer, chocolate chip cookies, the windshield whipper, dishwashers, monopoly, home security systems, stem cell isolations, Kevlar, the cat heater, the fire escape, the life raft, residential solar heating, the medical syringe, the modern electric fridge, the ice cream maker, more telecommunications than you can shake a stick at, wireless transmissions technology, CCTV, the paper bag, central heating, and computer software. Boys: oh... Me: but boys are outstanding and we wouldn’t be here today without them! I admire them so much and they’re so smart too. We are equal and opposite and wouldn’t be here without each other. A girl who really tries can be really smart! A guy who really tries can be just as smart! Shoot for who you wanna be! Have a good day, and I hope you got something out of my long comment!

To me it seems that girls are generaly better at learning new things and boys Are better at inventing, exploring new things. Boys Are better in figuring out, but once the thing is figured out, gilrs Are those who learn it better. In nutshell (my personal opinion)

I see so many memes saying girls see bugs and insects as dragons and monsters, yet I see them as little puppies. Then there's also the people who say all women play with Barbie dolls and doll houses while they say that males only play video games. I play video games for a living.

In my school, it’s an inside joke with the boys at the school at how smarter the girls are, whether biased by the teacher or if they were just plain smarter, which I was almost conditioned to believe through elementary school. Whenever there was some academic contest, we’d have a small laugh at how almost all of the top 10 winners were female. One time there was a speech contest around middle school, and one of the winners was a speech about how females were treated as less than males when out of the top 8, only one was male.

It usually depends on how much a human studies. Girls may be more likely to study than boys which would probably make them smarter. But if boys are more likely to study then they would be smarter. (I’m not sure if what I said is true but I think it’s good)
