We are definitely XX's.  But just cause I would have taken shop if I could have (back in the Dark Ages they didn't allow that), doesn't mean I don't like lots of female things too.  I just don't know why we should allow our chromasomes to limit us.  If you can do the job well, what does it matter what sex you are?

Sometimes rules need to be challenged.  I was outraged at being barred from shop class and questioned the "authorities".  They said that that's the way it was and no girl had tried to enrol before.  I pointed out that it was illogical to bar girls because we drove cars too and were more vulnerable if our cars broke down in the middle of nowhere.  The following year girls were allowed to take it...great, but too late for me.

I still do a lot of my own mechanical and body work.

That's your feeling, based on your perceptions, whatever they might be.  For instance, I would prefer a female proctologist because she'll probably have smaller fingers.  You might prefer a female due to homophobia.  I generally prefer female doctors because they pay more attention to detail, however, I find that males usually make better surgeons.  And although your mother will deliver you, there are housedads who can be quite nurturing with their children.

I couldn't care less about gender, I choose the person who can do the best job.  My MD is female, my OBGYN is male.  I hope I never have to see another proctologist.  Why don't they taper the edges on the tubes?  Barium enemas with sharp edged tubes...[:0]

If you're going to count those as balls, yep, they're WAY bigger!

Does a bragging contest of this nature have an inverse relationship to an IQ test?

It think it might be more like inverse cube!  Interesting though.

Can't brag about my IQ; it was given to me so I get no credit for that.  What I do give myself credit for is what I do with the IQ.

Donnah - I suppose one could say the same for body part(s) worth bragging about!

Last time I checked around, and remember I do work in plastic surgery, I didn't see any woman with breasts smaller than testicles!  Has nothing to do with bragging or IQ, just medical observation.
