I think it's good to say stuff like that Scott, because it sorta helps make up for the hundreds of years during which the female brain was thought to be smaller than and inferior to the male brain. Early psych studies often don't include females at all.
I think we have a higher pain threshold, too--in general. I'm talking, of course, about pregnancy, labor and delivery. My experience (in the bad old days of 1970) was hours of desperate agony about which nothing could be done, and people just got pissed when I yelled. And, evidently some women "forget the pain when you hold your baby" but not the hell me!
Off topic there. Anyhow, good work on going for the accolades.
