Too many vids have been posted showing women in uniform taking on average men. Watch COPS sometime, and see regular women off the street giving the po-po's a run for their money.
No one has debated that MOST men are stronger than MOST women. Fact. The thing is, women in uniform and women with specialized training are not average women.
One last thing BRO...can you hit a moving target with a rifle at 250 yds? I can. Can you run 4 miles in 24 minutes? I can. And I have those chest things that "slow me down"
First of all your making an a** out of yourself by assuming.
Where you actually in the Marines I was. Where you a machine gunner I was. Did you fire an m16 I did. DId you run 3 miles in 18 minutes I did. Can you bench 310 lbs I can.
The physical requirement for a female marine are much lower then a male for a reason.
Second of all there's a difference between taking down a some puny 130 lbs drunk uttering fool or pothead who's acting beliegerant THEN AN AVERAGE MAN. KEY WORD AVERAGE. Maybe you should look up and actually know what it means

Most average female marines are like pitbulls and there tough as nails. Sure they can pick off weaker men without a weapon but they would lose to MOST average man.
Turn off tombraider, stop watching xena not everyone women is Ultraviolet. Stop with the fantasy crap.
Sex differences in human physiology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Strength, power and muscle mass
Typically, males are physically stronger than females. The difference is due to females having less total muscle mass than males, and also having lower muscle mass in comparison to total body mass. While individual muscle fibers have similar strength, males have more fibers due to their greater total muscle mass. The greater muscle mass of males is in turn due to a greater capacity for muscular hypertrophy as a result of men's higher levels of testosterone. Males remain stronger than females, when adjusting for differences in total body mass. This is due to the higher male muscle-mass to body-mass ratio. Females tend to convert more food into fat, while men convert more into muscle and expendable circulating energy reserves.
Gross measures of body strength suggest a 40-50% difference in upper body strength between the sexes, and a 20-30% difference in lower body strength. One study of muscle strength in the elbows and knees—in 45 and older males and females—found the strength of females to range from 42 to 63% of male strength. Another study found men to have significantly higher hand-grip strength than women, even when comparing untrained men with female athletes
Males have denser, stronger bones, tendons, and ligaments.
In men, the second digit (index finger) tends to be shorter than the fourth digit (ring finger), while in women the second digit tends to be longer than the fourth (see digit ratio).
Men have a more pronounced 'Adam's Apple' or thyroid cartilage (and deeper voices) due to larger vocal cords.
When measuring male and female canine teeth, studies yield different results as to which sex has larger teeth. However, the differences in sizes are small.
Male skulls and head bones have a different shape than female skulls. The male mandible is generally wider, larger, and squarer than females. They also have more prominent eyebrows, rectangular orbital with rounded border, longer and larger nasal bone and more projecting cheekbone.
Male and female pelvises are shaped differently. The female pelvis features a wider pelvic cavity, which is necessary when giving birth. The female pelvis has evolved to its maximum width for childbirth — an even wider pelvis would make women unable to walk. In contrast, human male pelves did not evolve to give birth and are therefore slightly more optimized for walking. The female pelvis is larger and broader than the male pelvis which is taller, narrower, and more compact. The female inlet is larger and oval in shape, while the male inlet is more heart-shaped.
Contrary to popular belief, however, males and females do not differ in the number of ribs; both usually have twelve pairs. About 1 in 200-500 people have an additional cervical rib, and there is a female predominance
Males typically have larger tracheae and branching bronchi, with about 56% greater lung volume per body mass. They also have larger hearts, 10% higher red blood cell count, higher haemoglobin, hence greater oxygen-carrying capacity. In athletes, the difference in oxygen-carrying capacity between men and women is much less prominent. They also have higher circulating clotting factors (vitamin K, prothrombin and platelets). These differences lead to faster healing of wounds and higher peripheral pain tolerance.
Male skin is thicker (more collagen) and oilier (more sebum) than female skin, but females have a thicker layer of fat under the skin and female skin constricts blood vessels near the surface (vasoconstriction) in reaction to cold to a greater extent than men's skin, both of which help women to stay warm and survive lower temperatures than men. As a result of greater vasoconstriction, while the surface of female skin is colder than male skin, the deep-skin temperature in women is higher than in men.
Males also generally have darker skin than females. The lighter skin in females helps their bodies synthesize more Vitamin D from sunlight and absorb more calcium, which is needed during pregnancy and lactation.
Females tend to have more pain receptors per cm of skin than males
The OP didn't include weapons. My impression from this thread is that he's comparing actual hand to hand combat. He didn't include tasers, guns, etc. etc. If thats the case anyone can take on anyone with a weapon.
