"You know absolutely nothing about the development of homo sapien if you think men are bigger and stronger so they could hunt for food and water."
Geez, I would have thought that would be a halfway decent guess? lol
Sexual dimorphism in humans stems from Australopithacine ancestors,
Yeah, I don't know what those are.
Men were bigger and stronger so they could make women mate with them. Otherwise the species would have died out; the men had no money back then
Thats an interesting premise,rape is the result of natural selection and a favorable inherited behavioral trait.
The Main Reason a Female will Never become World Chess Champion is because they lack the “Killer Instinct” Inherent in Males!
Prior to the FIDE WC cycle, there was really no such thing as a professional chess players and the WC's by and large came from academia. Up unti '72 the only players who could reasonably make a decent living were the Soviets and the Soviet School dominated high level chess. Had the Soviet School promoted women chess players as much as men there would be more high level female players everywhere. It is telling that no women achieved GM prior to the colapse of the Soviet Union. Judit Polgar certainly proves it is possible to be a contender.

What's your basis for that contention?
Iff a girl became wcc:
Yeah well, rape, murder, theft - they hadn't thought of these things at the time. To busy trying to survive. No time for ethics until survival wasn't the only issue
not even wrong
nope. just reality.
Nope. Males use their size and strength to dominate lesser males rather than the females. This is elementary stuff.
so there was no physical coercion used in mating? The men wined and dined and seduced the women?
Your hatred of women pollutes your thinking.
Wow. Lotta haters and creeps on here. It's simple: if women could make money playing chess at least as much as men, then it would only be a matter of time before a woman is grand champion (see #1123). Since, in the past, only a few men made money playing chess, and amateur men played chess as a masculine concept rooted in ideas about battle and war, women decided that there was better mating fun elsewhere. With some continued levity here: If you're at a party, bring out a chess board and see how many females are left in 5 minutes. It's not that they can't play (oh boy, can they), it's that they're not interested in (possibly gay) cockfighting, and if you want to frame it evolutionarily, then consider the evolutionary stable strategy here - men too busy silently playing and obsessing about chess the entire time instead of paying attention to available females aren't going to be good mates. Here's a better question: do grand champions leave behind a lot of kids? Amongst my friends, we have a simple rule: if there are girls about, no effing chess, because it's a guaranteed blanket cockblock. Two cents! Outta here...
I should be just as famous as Carlsen, because the only reason I'm not as good as him is because I just didn't feel like putting in the time.
I don't know, I just think sometimes when people are too excuse happy it can devalue people's accomplishments. It's much easier to say you could have done something than to do it.
And at the same time it's not fair to assume you're amazing because you're good at an esoteric activity, because it may just be a sign of your obsessiveness.
Oh Lord! What a testosterone-fueled mess this has turned into.
If you want to know what primative human and homnid behavior was like, consider the bonobos (pygmy chimpanzee).
Jamie,it's the corrupting influence of The Ring of Trolling,some of the posters here are trapped in it's clutches;unable to break free they are forced to type irrational and nonsensical opinions.When confronted,they have no choice but to double-down and dig an even deeper hole for themselves ,then screaming,leap into the darkness.Such is the vile power of The Ring of Trolling.....
