    It was just a question. Haven't accused anyone yet. If my guess proves wrong, then I will apologize.

    It is sexist for women to avoid men because the fear of rape because the majority of rapes are committed by men just like it is racist saying the majority of violent crimes are committed by minorities there for it is wise to avoid minorities

    "Dont go out after dark", good that you dont live where the sun is gone for 3months then (like here)!
    theres more, like never leave your drink alone at a party, dont answer the door to strangers (or dont inlatch it if you must), etc.

    The statement was poorly worded really, when discussing sensitive subjects its best to try and be sensitive.


    18:58 - Knslyr: 3 hours. Felt very stiff in your hand after that I bet
    19:00 - Pendra: My hand felt pretty fucked up afterwards.

I have seen and head numerous things lately about how all women should assume all men are rapist unless they are verified been ok (friend, friend of a friend etc..)
    So women of MMO champ, do you constantly walk around thinking all men are rapist, do you live a constant state of fear. Cause this just seems odd to tarnish all random men you encounter as rapist. If you are scared what lengths do you go to, to protect yourself.

    When i walk down alone at night i am not afraid of muggers or murderers walking the other way, it just seems odd and a little paranoid
    I do not think it is right just to assume every man is a rapist

    I am only paranoid at night when I'm walking alone a dark path... but I am neurotic...
    I trust men and I know that there are MORE normal men who don't behave like wild starving animals.
    While walking anywhere, I don't mind if a man is close... but if he is starting talking to me in a very inappropriate way or "checks" me out like he would be looking at some object, I start to avoid him because I get scared... I consider myself WAY weaker than a guy so I guess that's normal?

    But I think it's the same way of thinking like.. when some men think, a woman wears short skirts and cleavages for THEM. :/

    also keys in hand so you don't get attacked searching through a purse for them, never admit to being home alone, get the name + description of anyone coming to work around/ in your house...

    though most of them seem more common sense for ANYONE, not just women.

    Where did I say you condone anything? You are asking people who fear being a victim, to see it from the assailants view. You do not understand why that's not being taken well?

    Well, that' fine. I apologize if it made you feel belittled, that wasn't my intention. I was trying to make my post as short and well constructed as possible, only reason for my poor wording.

    I wish women would understand that it doesn't matter who they wear the short skirts and plunging necklines for.

    You can wear them for the President of the United States for all we care... we're still going to look.

    I mean... you shouldn't need Captain Hindsight to tell you that if you don't want men to look at your ass, you shouldn't wear tight pants.

    Bolded the important bits.

    The part that science proved was that sex is almost a non-factor in rape.
    Yes and his argument was that science can't prove the reasons behind rape and yet you chose to use your post against me, even though his was blatantly wrong as well on more than one level and that's what I was attacking him about. Why is that you think? I'll tell you. It's because you picked me to disagree with first and that right there proves my previous point.

    Anyways I'm over run. You people win ok. I'm a rapist, I condone rape, I think rape is ok because it's hormonal and Satan is my dad and female Diablo my mother. I'm evil and you guys are awesome and everything is well that ends well. Happy now? Whatever, I truly am done here.

    Aha! So you admit that one's choice of lifestyle and behavior has an impact on their likelihood to end up as a victim of a violent crime. That sounds suspiciously like victim-blaming. What happens to men if they suggest that a woman's choice of lifestyle and behavior impacts her chance of becoming a rape victim?

    (And yes, I see that you have posted some guidelines for how women can avoid being raped -- which I agree with, by the way. The fact remains that a man making similar suggestions would be pilloried as a victim-blamer.)

    The 2% of rapes being falsely reported came from FBI.gov of reported rapes, not supposed rapes. It's a fact. It's there. To try to imply that that number is higher than it actually is implies that women are liars, and the men who are acquitted are never liars.

    Many studies are inconclusive because of the low report rate. That does not change the statistics that ARE out there. You're trying to imply the falsely accused rate is higher than it has been proven to be.

    These types of threads are always tiring. It's always people arguing from either extreme side and it always sounds the same. The chauvanists usually end up sounding like some backwoods hick from a hundred years ago and the feminists are usually just preaching equal rights until its time to pick up the check or get into a life boat. Double standards suck no matter who it is.

    That's only because you don't see it from his perspective. Women shouldn't avoid men, because the man might feel bad. If the floor feels weak, are you going to insult the carpenter and not walk on it? /sarcasm

    "We" don't live in a state of fear, but we're cautious. When 50% of the entire world population can overpower you in most cases, that's what you do. You get cautious.

    Besides that, almost all women will have experienced unwanted intimacy in their lives - not necessarily raping. Think of whistling, sexist comments, slap on the ass, creepy stares by guys that could be your grandfather (there's a reason we call that "looks that undress you" in some languages). Add to that that we *know* these guys could literally take what they want from us, yeah, we'll sidestep. In short, we have no reason to be trusting of strange men when on our own, especially not if those men are together, under the influence of alcohol, or could otherwise be tempted to misbehave (alone at night, etc).

    Edit: I really must add it is probably a very hard thing to imagine for a man.

    "general violent crime" and "sexual assault" are considered different things. its well studied that men are more likely to engage in risky activities, and also well studied that there is no correlation they can find for rape victimization, other than gender.

    Actually, it was against everyone in the thread who said sex had anything to do with rape. You just happened to pull psychology, which made it more on-topic than randomly posting "rape isn't about sexlol".

    But really, victim more on me o.O
