I understand I am being contradictory but you only talked to me because of my body and my face not because of the words that I spoke. It being the initial reason you talked to me " wow she is really pretty' okay okay. Some gents game is baaaddd and they come off very creepy. Why would I want to talk to you if you offer to buy me things- you dont know me...
I might be misunderstood, but.
I do understand some of the concerns* but when this type of stuff happens
I'm just going "yeah ok then. Thats too much now."
*Since I live in country where stuff like this is somewhat rare and its bit more safer(?) to walk around at night I cannot say I'm really expert on stuff like this.
I just cant understand whole "All white males contribute to rape-culture because they are white and males" argument (which btw is either extreme trolling because there are never really facts about this subject other than "fancy image with text").
Yeah some advertisers, movie makers or law-makers are "white and male" but does it mean I'm supporting them and I should be penalized until this changes?
Thats really how I think, but I'm going to be interested on possible replies and knowledge on the issues. It just feels like poking beehive every time
Is a character not entitled to the sweat of their own grind?
No says the afk mage in LFR - it belongs to me! No, says the Simulations - its not titanforged enough. No, says the guild leader - we need you to wear utility legendary.
I rejected those ideals. And became...Disenchanter
Edit: now not all woman who dress like this are asking for attention. This is more of a personal statement for me. If a woman dresses provocatively she should understand that she will increase her desirability with her male counter part- possibly.

I think this fear of strangers, especially of men is hardwired into women's heads. Back before the civilized era it was almost a certainty that you'd get involuntary sex if you weren't protected by a strong alpha male or in a large group of other females. Whether we like it or not, most primates(which we are apart of) are rapists by nature. This doesn't mean ALL men go out there and rape at any given chance they get. There is no need for that anymore. Finding and impressing a partner is fairly easy for us nowadays. We have a good female to male ratio and designated places were you are guaranteed to find a partner(Clubs,pub etc). The need for rape doesn't exist anymore.
Rape is still an activity our species like to do though. It shows dominance over the victim, which can be a turn on for certain individuals. People in the non-civilized world still use rape on both men and women to show/claim dominance within a group. Why? Because it's an effective tool to make sure people fear and obey you. So, yes. Women have good reason to be cautious around men when walking alone at night. If you as a man want to help women out when meeting them at dark nights, walk to the other side of the street and be in clear view all the time. It will be most appreciated by all women.
Also, never EVER walk behind a women at a pace that is faster than her's during later hours. I learnt this the hard way! Just trust me on this one
Something, Something, Something, Dark Side.
There's plenty of creeps out there. I'm not denying that. Those same creeps are usually "nice guys", which is a shorthand for "misogynist bastard who thinks he's owed a woman because of how 'nice' he is, but is too passive-aggressive to be a jerk about it and actually get one through faking self-confidence."
From research that I have read, girls make the distinction based on whether or not eye contact with a man is well received or not and how well the man responds back.
But like I said early, society has screwed us (males) up with making proper eye contact. And someone already proved it by saying "thats what sun glasses with reflective lenses are for." Which proves my point that we creepy.
Personally I assume everyone I don't know really really well is a potential psychopath. If you are a stranger than that means I don't know anything about you personally so why would I trust you? Even acquaintances could seem fine and then stab you in the face randomly for no apparent reason. This doesn't mean I don't go outside by myself or anything (honestly I don't feel comfortable trusting anyone else with my safety so alone or not alone is moot) and it doesn't mean I don't ever meet new people.
It means I am cautious. I am on guard. I pay attention to my surroundings and who is about. I don't like when people walk too closely to me and if I am walking past a window or a car I pay attention to the reflections to see what is going on around me where I can't see. I know I can never catch everything, but I'd rather do the things I can do than walk around not paying attention to anything at all. Personally I feel like people who do not do these things are naive. And it's not that I think everyone is actually a threat, but I don't have the information needed to tell if someone is a threat or not if I don't know them. So it's better to be cautious.
Oh also, idc if a stranger is male or female. They both get the same level of scrutiny from me.
I'm highly aware that many women are stupid and use it as a scapegoat. And I am fully aware that many feel like they can latch on to playing the victim for sympathy/money/status. I've met a few of these women and have personally wanted them removed off the planet.
Doesn't matter if there is booze, drugs, getting high, emotions, whatever you want to use as an excuse. If the person didn't want sex, it's rape. For either party. No matter the age, the gender, the social difference, or the reason really. Even if the person is drugged and laying there unable to respond from nearly blacking out, someone taking advantage of that is still rape. Was it stupid for a person to put themselves into a bad spot for drinking/smoking/pill popping/dressing poorly? Yes. Should that stupidity or lack of caution damn them to rape? No. No matter how stupid one is or what bad choice rape shouldn't be thought as the okay reason for their punishment.
I am getting off track, I apologize. I do not mean to put words into your mouth claiming someone either that you're saying this or that.
And because I came back:
Don't want me to come back? Well then don't quote me again.

Seems Arganis you can't resist posting even when you said you would stop.
'Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead
Or a yawing hole in a battered head
And the scuppers clogged with rotting red
And there they lay I damn me eyes
All lookouts clapped on Paradise
All souls bound just contrarywise, yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

Women are afraid because it's rational to be afraid. Why run the risk?
In fact as far as I'm aware the UK is the only european nation that outright bans guns for civilians.This is why people ban guns. Gun supporters don't know what guns are.Shotguns I'll give you (provided you're allowed 12 and larger gauges... because I mean... come on...) but not .22s.
