I have a counter question to this. Let's say it becomes proven that women are smarter than us, considering this world is no longer a place where might equals right and everything is solved with money and brains, then should we conclude that in the current time period there is already no need for men to pretend to be the bread winner or even the "Man of the house" anymore? I mean, what's the point of asserting masculine dominance if there is nothing a man has which dominates the relationship these days. If muscles are useless and women are smarter then can you guys please be the ones to court us for our simple looks and take us out for Friday dinners and such. You can tell I'm slightly sarcastic about the whole conversation, it's because the moment you have this "What gender is better" conversation you have to first look at whether this topic will bring any positive change to how men and women behave to each other and the answer currently is likely a big fat no.
