	You are confusing a combination of statistical correlations and wishful
fantasy with universal truth. Let me give you an example: Statistically
speaking, most men are physically stronger than most women. The
strongest men are physically stronger than the strongest women. However,
by your logic, this means that any man is stronger than any woman, and
there is something inherently wrong with a given woman being stronger
than a given man.
