"Throw like a girl"

George Standish at

My whole life, I've thought the reason women threw differently from men, was a nurture thing. I assumed young girls just didn't do as much throwing. Yesterday, I learned there is a physical/biological difference between male and female shoulders. Personal mystery solved.

Do you have any citation on that?

I have never heard of such a difference. From my understanding the mechanics of a woman shoulder is pretty much identical to men.


This article would seem to support that. Stating that the anatomical differences are insignificant statistically.


There is a throwing gap.. even in cultures that don't nurture differently but it seems to be more of a compliccated CNS hand/hip/arm co-ordination thing.

oh my reference is terrible! it was Joe Rogan's first interview with Gad Saad ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfsNP-qgdZo ) and it's J.R. who makes the claim.

"To account for the effects of nurturing, Thomas studied aboriginal children in Australia, who throw the same amount regardless of gender." <- am I back to square one???
