CassMT men are more strong and athletic and aggressive, etc

but clearly women have more endurance, for example they can endure men

F1EA People still hang on to this argument... Here's some more overwhelming proof:

1. Testosterone is a known performance enhancer... is estrogen? Who naturally produces more of which?

2. So... men have more mass, muscle blah blah blah etc: Ayumu Hirano, men's silver at Sochi. Probably like 110 lbs... wet, in full gear.

You make your own conclusions. I personally like and appreciate women too much to think they are the same as men.

Have a nice day

That's NOT a double-cork, it's a double underflip. Not an easy trick per se, but definitely an easier trick.

Also, you're missing the point: there's a big difference between being able to do a trick once for a youtube highlight reel and being able to land it regularly in open competition. Ana Gasser can not (and does not) do that.

If she'd done an actual double cork at the Olympics and stomped it along with the rest of her normal run, she would have won because ZERO female pros have double corks on lock and can land them regularly in their runs.

Men are overall better athletes than women. Period. It's an undeniable fact.

The "no, they're just different" argument only holds water if you inherently hold women to a lower standard... which in turn, completely invalidates that theory while also highlighting the fact that they can't hold a torch to men athletically MOST of the time.

This isn't sexism or chauvinism either; there are differences between sexes in all of nature and that doesn't make one "better" or "worse", it just is.

How so many men have been brainwashed by feminism, liberalism, and hell, even corporate marketing to believe any of this "Women are strong, proud warriors who are just as great as men athletically and there's nothing these goddesses can't do!" crap is ridiculous.

As far as snowboarding goes in particular, it should tell you something that with the way judging has been for 4+ years now, if LITERALLY ONE female rider learned to stomp a double cork in either slopestyle or superpipe, she'd win just about every contest she entered...... so why is it that NONE of them has locked down a double yet?

Really ask yourself why Jamie Anderson just won Gold at the Olympics with virtually the EXACT same run she's been doing for 5 YEARS now... a run which, by the way, couldn't have won a men's competition even in the last millennium.

Just saying, I like watching women riders but they're not even close to being at the same level competitively as men, they don't push their boundaries the way the men do, and their side of the sport is suffering from a serious lack of progression.

No, I genuinely did not understand his point. But heh I disagree that women are "naturals" at it. Guys can do it just as well. I've seen it

Plus, these are menial tasks in my view. Saying "oh, but women are so much better at these menial tasks" while still maintaining the stance that they are not as good as men at other, less trivial physical tasks (sports and stuff), is... I dunno... not so cool.

Now, obviously, there are biological differences between women and men that make one group better at some physical tasks than the other (It switches off based on activity, I think).

So... why is this thread still going on? I suppose it's my fault...

Banni Do men get marked harsher for mistakes such as hand plants on landings than women? The difference between snowboarding slopestyle and skiing was huge almost as if skiers got it easy!

Saw that too! If she wasn't wearing a helmet that would have been her head! Good think it's compulsory!
