Really, it is unnecessary to point this out, and it is a fallacious argument. There is more to strength than testosterone enhanced muscle mass. There is also endurance and speed which takes different types of muscle tissue. And, getting hung-up on biogenetic differences misses the really important issue of treating everyone as a living entity with dignity and care. The “physical” stuff is irrelevant, and frankly we have the technology to change that if we were so shallow to do so. Spiritual strength is by far superior to the physical anyway.
I know you mean well but men and women are not the same. You can put the same ranks, but in reality men are stronger physically and thinking is different. Men and women just have to play their role and don’t break the freakin rules.
Never, ever play by anyone else's rules.
There is a reason why the Strength card in most Tarot decks carries the image of a woman. It's because real strength has nothing to do with weightlifting.
That's Tarot not reality. He's talking about reality, what is going on in the Pagan World. There is also a Lion with her so she's not alone because the true idea of strength is a lion image. Females looking for mental strength always invites an image to help them.
Take your advise and never ever play by your own rules, especially if those rules don't follow it's true form..
Actually, the Woman's ability to stand next to the lion without fear is the representation of strength--not the lion by itself. Facing one's 'lion' is where one truly expresses one's strength.
Don't ever ask me to be friends here in P.S. your reasoning is insane.

Yah I learned to quote people in P.S. lol.. Dohn Joe
Insane?! Meh, I've been called worse. Generally, anyone who sees things that other people can't is called insane regardless of their actual mental health.
Also, Stacy Horn in her book “Unbelievable” quotes a 2004 University of California report that states that, “although the majority of people with schizophrenia may hear voices, the vast majority of voice hearers do not have schizophrenia”
You could contrast Strength with The Emperor. The Emperor rules--he projects his will without force, which is a very masculine skill. Strength, on the other hand, pacifies without violence--a very stereotypical feminine trait.
Goodness you're off your meds. This post is about Pagan Community Problems.
Oh, everyone's drunk the kool-aid alright. It's called Systemic Bigotry and it's exceedingly difficult to banish from the head. Considering that humans are pound-for-pound one of the physically weakest of animals on the planet, we shouldn't be basing any measurement of worth or social position on physical strength.
