@moonman @jeffcliff wamen should live longer than men even when other factors are accounted for. It's a trend among most species on this planet. X chromosome is linked with longevity in general.

@mono @moonman then again, so is being protected from predators by males. . .

@jeffcliff @mono @moonman I'm grateful for men protecting me from predators, and all the men in the military ❤️

@rice @moonman @mono @jeffcliff Agreed. Plus it is scary not to have a man around for that security they usually provide. So if anything, the gap being so wide is a concern because you end up alone and more vulnerable in old or middle age as a woman.
