Women Are Better Than Men At...

I recently read this article on Yahoo, which is about a book by Dan Abrams that explains why women are better than men at almost everything, according to scientific studies and research, in his attempt to disprove sexist cliches (like women are bad drivers, etc). Awesome! These aren't his opinions, they aren't his theories or musings. His book is based on actual evidence from studies and research, which he references in his book.

Man Down: Proof Beyond a Reasonable Doubt That Women Are Better Cops, Drivers, Gamblers, Spies, World Leaders, Beer Tasters, Hedge Fund Managers, and Just About Everything ElseThis book is obviously controversial, if I even need to say that, but I bought it because I was curious (or maybe I'm a sucker) and thought it'd be a fun read. Whether you agree with this or not, I wanted to share a few things women are better than men at, according to Man Down, by Dan Abrams.

  • Women are better drivers. (Oooohhhh yeah, victory dance! Males have a 77% higher risk of dying in a car accident per mile compared to women.)
  • Women are better beer and wine tasters, or any type of food taster, actually.
  • Women are better at video games.
  • Women get ready faster than men. (Shocking!)
  • Women have better memories (I think that one's obvious).
  • Women are better gamblers, not to mention investors and hedge fund managers.
  • Women are better at avoiding internet fraud.
  • Women are better students and are better at social media (I'd have to agree :)
  • Women in politics are less corrupt.
  • Women are getting better looking faster than men.
  • Women have stronger immune systems.
  • Women are better cops, world leaders, newscasters, loan officers, etc.

Funny thing is, women still make less than men in the US. Does that mean we're a better bargain? Well, what do you think about what Mr. Dan Abrams has brought to light?
