"Throw like a girl"
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.
