Either way, they still have bigger shoulders, which freak us out.

(And bigger hands, which freaks out Seinfeld.)

Yeah, of course; I'm not saying women can't do things men can do but simply that a person might find things a person from another gender would usually do harder or it might not come as easily to them and that doesn't depend on whether you're female or male.

For example a mother will find it easier to look after her baby in its time shortly after birth than the father since the baby would cry less and be less difficult because the psychological bond between the mother a the child starts in the womb, whereas with the father the bonding would start after the baby's birth. Here, I'm not trying to say a female is better at parenting or looking after babies but in the baby's early moments, the role of looking after it should predominantly be the mother, that's just what's best, not trying to say that the father is incapable of doing the looking after if the circumstances call for it.

Is it really that bad to push gender roles such as this on people?

Women are better with kids. I'm "old fashioned" so I think so long as everyone is equal and happy, gender roles are not bad. Men can go out and work while women raise a family IF that's what they want. If they the opposite, that's perfectly fine too.

I believe that people think they are better than everyone else or worse then everyone else. Only see a few people that think of themselves as equal to everyone else.

I feel like the general discussion forum has its own seasons sometimes. A while ago it was religious threads. Now it's these. I thought I disliked the religious season, but looking back on it now, I guess it wasn't so bad.

I wonder what the next season will be.

Or you could give the benefit of a doubt and assume he was referring to people who are
biologically male or female respectively. This insistence on having every statement precisely qualified even in casual
comments is unnatural for most and the source of way too much drama from the chronically offended. Unless the statement is blatantly transphobic, assume the best...unless you like drama.

Besides we are talking about the general case, there will naturally be individual exceptions, but on average men are stronger than women. I don't have the statistics but I suspect even including trans people the statement would still be accurate in the general case.

The terms "biologically male or female" are inherently transphobic themselves.

Let's not take this topic down that route. His statement is accurate. No need to bring up unnecessary arguments simply because he didn't please the masses. It's not like there aren't enough bait threads as is.

No it's not, it's a simple acknowledgement of reality. In this case the research in question deals with sex, and biologically there are difference between the sexes that are independent of there gender identity whether you care to acknowledge them or not. Willful ignorance of fundamental physiological and psychological differences for the sole purpose of making someone feel good isn't equality. Also, unless I missed it no one is suggesting that trans people are lesser human beings because of a secondary sexual characteristic. We can have equality without pretending our differences don't exist.
