    5 7/8" to 6" even, depending on looseness of tape (or abt 15 cm)

    When I measure with a fabric tape in inches it is exactly 5 inches measured loosely enough not to indent my skin. I have to have someone else measure in cm again because I got 12 cm last time I checked so sounds about right?

    Just a question/curiosity: Why is everyone putting inches in decimals? It feels weird to me - there are no decimals on a measuring tape when you measure in inches or feet, only the metric system is split into 10s so where are these decimals coming from?

    I don't have measuring tape on me at the moment, but a lot of times women who weigh much more than me have smaller wrists than I do... I have a big to medium bone frame with long limbs. I get it from my mother who's bone frame is even larger than mine. Her doctor told her that she had really high bone density, which is awesome at her age considering Caucasian females generally have to watch out for osteoporosis when they are middle aged.

    My sister has a small bone frame with smaller wrists and shorter limbs. She takes after my dad.

    5" and a little over a half. So, that's, what, 5 5/8"?

    Why does this matter?

    6.75

    Wrist Circumference is directly correlatable to bone density, which dictates how much weight your body can move around before it starts exhibiting hindrances. Manny Pacquiao, for instance, has 8" wrists, and that's why he was able to fight from 100 lbs to 154 lbs and not slow down.

    Usually, thinner shouldered long armed people have the thickest wrists.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If itís a disease, itís nobodyís fault. Yay empiricism.

    OK, I posted here a few days ago, but then deleted it, for reasons relating to what @Jeremy said. But then @Pookie injected some reason into this thread, and I reconsidered. Here is what I posted previously:

    "7.25" I think I have small wrists for a man."

    Both wrists are the same. I cut a 1/2" wide strip of paper, wrapped it around my wrist, used a pencil to draw a line where the band overlapped itself, and measured between pencil marks using machinist's calipers (nerd alert).

    Pookie says that wrist circumference is related to bone density, and perhaps I have dense bones. Certainly, I spent a few years in a factory working as a machinist, and machinists pick up very, very heavy objects all day long, 10 hours a day, six days a week, and are constantly moving things, turning handles, adjusting blocks of steel, then heavy lift, tighten the bolts, pull the levers, repeat until you leave work, 10 minute break every two hours, no slacking or you're out. Constant stress on bones would tend to increase their density. Furthermore, people are surprised at how much I weigh, given my size and shape.

    One final note. I do think I have small wrists for a man. But I guess I'm comparing myself to the other guys in the factory. The lifers.

    I did the same with the piece of paper, but just tore the paper where it met, then measured. Then I did the same for my D lol.
