Actually, your second point isn’t sexist, it’s just false. In fact, men have a significantly higher pain tolerance than women. I think the common belief that women have a higher pain tolerance is because they go through child birth, but the pain tolerance of women during childbirth is directly linked to the release of endorphins throughout the pregnancy, peaking during childbirth.

So, the reason women can tolerate childbirth is due to endorphin release, not high pain tolerance. At all other times, non pregnant women have a lower pain tolerance than men (on average).
