Women Experience Pain Differently From Men

Image result for Women Experience Pain Differently From Men

BBC News reports a study
showing that women, on average, experience more pain than men as well as
dealing with pain in a different way. This is certainly an interesting study
but the opening line of the BBC report is completely beyond me,
“Women are bigger wimps than
men when it comes to pain.”
If women experience more pain
and react to it at a lower threshold then clearly, their experience is worse.
How does this make them wimps? Saying that women are wimps for having a more
intense experience of pain is like blaming a diabetic for not being able to eat
five mars bars.
