Well I feel I need to post my opinion here,and im sure its going to upset some people,namely Feminists,but its been proven through human history that male humans are physically stronger and more able to cope with physical trauma over their female counterparts,which is why men usually have broader chests and a heavier skeletal structure.In battle men also cope with the mental stress better than women too.HOWEVER,in RARE cases this has sometimes been reversed,with exceptional women like Queen Boudica of the ancient Britons,who was a fierce warrior and even scared the mightiest of male warriors in battle,with her shock of red hair and fierce blue eyes,apparently she was over 6ft and very muscular too,typical for a Celt.
So if there are ANY physical advantages with men over women in this game it is accurate in MY opinion,and the developers did well to see this.
On the other hand,women have often been looked upon (even revered) for having a profound spiritual aura about them,you might even say divine in some cases,and so a high Psionics score would be realistic.
In a nutshell:There ARE differences between men and women and indeed with different races too if you care to read into it.We are NOT equal and nature INTENDED this to be so.Piss around with nature and its only right that nature punish those who abandoned or attempted to change it.
Apologies for my rather radical views here,but sometimes these things need to be said,instead of being afraid to speak your mind in this hated liberal society.
This was not directed at ANYONE,it was just one of my humble opinions regarding life
