"What can men do but women can't?" My class was stumped!

This week I was teaching "can" and "can't" in my class.

The question came up "What can women do but men can't?"

The obvious answer for everyone was "Women can give birth but men can't."

Then I asked, "What can men do but women can't?"

The class was stumped. Long pause.

Really long pause.

Any answers out there?

Haha such an interesting question Ray. I was wondering quite long. I agree with some comments above. I can give you three examples of things men can do but women.. just can't:

1. Who can beat men when they wide open their legs in public places? Can you imagine if women do that too?  .-.

2. Men can standing up while pee. There are urinals in men's toilet right? Women can't do that

3. When men meet up with their friends, they usually bro-ing up. If women also do that, it will be seemed super weird and awkward!

"Women can give birth but men can't."

Yes, that is true but on the other side "women cannot give birth without a man" .
