Dear Ladies
I was wondering do you hate being physically weaker than men? I hate it. I've had a few men completely overpower me and beat me down without even trying. Even men smaller than me still beat me down. While I fought with everything I had. I lost to every man at everything that had to do with physical strength. I used to pride myself on being strong. But men showed me reality, I guess. For thousands of years men used their natural power to abuse and oppress us. I hate the fact that they could take away all our rights and abuse us and oppress us like they used to for those thousands of years. Women having any rights at all is a fairly new concept. I hate the fact that I can't go for night walks without fear of being raped. Sleeping in my apartment alone scares me. Men scare me. I'm not trying to bash men. In fact, I adore most men. But still, I'll always be jealous of how strong they are and hate how weak I am.

I do! I envy how they can rearrange their furniture without help. Or rent and load up a truck themselves when moving, for example.

I believe they are born with more upper body strength even if we work out! Just women bodybuilders and weight lifters (like in the Olympics) could come close to menís strength. There are good men out there so itís the bad ones that give men their scary reputation! Iíve got better strength now than in years past but canít hold a candle to men!

Well, as a man, hopefully one of the not (or less) toxic ones, I do feel that sentiment from some women on occasion. I raised two daughters and, while I'm getting a bit older and not as strong or tough as I used to be when I trained wrestling, I'm still pretty fit. I'm conscious, after talking with so many women of all ages, including my sister and my two daughters, of how intimidating it is and how consciously or unconsciously, women are scared of men. The best thing that can be done by men, I think, is to remain conscious of it and do as little as possible to inspire fear or insecurity towards a woman. I've had one seriously toxic relationship on the past. I let myself get hit. Not because I enjoyed it, nor because she was stronger than me (far from it) but because it isn't right. I ended up running, much like a thief, amidst calls of being less than a man, by her, by some other men.
But, I can say I never struck her. That makes me feel better for not having turned into someone women point out and say "He scares me".

I hate how easy it is for men to beat a woman's *** no matter how hard she fights back. I couldn't defend myself. I wish I was strong, I'd get revenge.

You are a gentleman, but I am still scared of you. I would feel very unsafe around you if you were really angry. I say that with respect.

And that's very okay. Fear isn't something that should be easily dismissed or mocked, it takes a long time to get better, especially when you've lived through traumatic events. I can only wish you to, at some point, someday, not feel that way anymore.

Richard, Good to hear a manís point of view but this forum is for women supporting women. Just like the menís support is for men supporting men.

Maybe OP doesnít mind but I find it unnerving, your being a man.

It is true that physically, men have an advantage. Anatomical differences, hormones, etc. all play into that. I guess itís just something you have to accept and take into account.

I heard a disturbing story on the news about men randomly sucker punching women in the face. Itís in New York City. Not sure how frequently it happens but they arenít even provoked in any way. I doubt if men would punch other men! They could get their lights punched out but women are vulnerable as we donít have that strength. Not that I want to get in a fight even if strong but I doubt they would punch men randomly!

I doubt those men would punch other men randomly too. I've been punched hard by men before. It hurts really bad and it knocks you off your feet. I've been bruised and bloodied by men. There was nothing I could do to defend myself. That's why I hate being physically weaker than men so much. What's happening in New York fuels my hatred for being weaker than them.

With all due respect, how are women stronger than men mentally? The world's best chess players are men. I mean no offence.

I do not feel this way. And both times I was fighting an attempt at forcibly rape in my young years, I won quickly, surprising myself with my strength. I was not lifting weights or anything at that time. Granted, I also quietly threatened the attackers with the police but they must have realized that I could not call the police and thus it was an empty threat. So yes, both times I really surprised myself. Once at 16, the other time at 25. A little later, at 26, I was acquaintance raped because I could not say no to the man, and I could not say no because I felt that I had owed to him for various favors such as watching my toddler son on occasion and in general being nice to me. I was furious with him afterwards but in the act, no, I could not assert my boundaries.

Other negative experiences with men have all revolves around manipulations and my emotional vulnerability and susceptibility. Never around being physically weaker.

On a separate note, I like strong physique in men but only up to a limit. I find the bodybuilders' bodies funny rather than attractive.
