    I'm not going to go out of my way holding the door for a random guy. However, if I see a girl that looks interesting I might take some few extra steps to ensure I get a chance to talk to her.

    If you've read this far and you STILL don't understand why the two things are relevant to each other, then you're being intentionally obtuse. But then, we both already knew that.

    Do you get my point? Rape is so ridiculously unlikely that it's not worth being hypervigilant about. No moreso than me being worried I'm gonna get stabbed.

    Is that a threat? You know I'm pretty sure the very founder of this site is French, so I don't know where you get off telling me to "stop that" like some kind of racist missionary hearing pigmy dialect but maybe I missed the forum rule that states you always have to speak English or get out. If so, then I have no issue speaking English.

    Actually...

    "Only post in English. As English is not everyone's native language, we ask you to not correct other people's posts unless you are asked to. Do not quote dictionary entries for the sake of arguing. Don't be the grammar police."

    Despite the origins of the site, it has developed into an English-speaking site.

    And you can't come up with a single good reason why. Why should women and mothers be more valuable than men and fathers?

    Why isn't everyone equally valuable?

    It's hard to know what you are saying.

    Nobody has been insinuating that. NO ONE

    you also said that it was sexist for them to be afraid because men should be more afraid of a completely different crime!
    Anyway, speaking only for myself, I don't think it's unreasonable to say that it's perfectly normal for women to be afraid of being raped. I mean, of all the things in the world to be afraid of, that's certainly up around the top of the list. I just find it interesting that men are objectively more likely to be victimized, and yet there's a constant undercurrent that women ought to be afraid for their safety. I also think it's interesting how many people find it completely reasonable to assume that any given man is a danger, while finding it unreasonable to assume that any given black person is a danger, when the male:female and black:white rates of violent crime are very similar. "Cross the street if you see a man walking in your direction" is sound advice, but "cross the street if you see a black person walking in your direction" is racist.

    (And for the record, I do think that the latter is racist, because it assumes that all black people are violent...just as I think that the former is sexist, because it assumes that all men are violent. In both cases, it takes behavior perpetrated by a small subset of that group -- blacks and men -- and projects it upon all members of that group. Which is pretty much the definition of racism/sexism.)
    If you've read this far and you STILL don't understand why the two things are relevant to each other, then you're being intentionally obtuse. But then, we both already knew that.
    i really dont. you're just trying to play "gotcha!", which.. im flattered really but you arent making any sense.

    No. You're the one who said you'd kill yourself. I'm pointing out how absolutely insignificant that would be even if it were extrapolated to every victim of rape.

    In other words, the total victimization (including 100% suicide rate, which would effectively turn rape into murder) would still be a ridiculously small minority of violent crime and less worthy of concern than it currently garners.

    Women have about the same statistical reason to fear rape as they do some ridiculous disease like necrotizing fasciitis.

    I feel that women being wary amongst men for rape as upsetting, and an overeaction at best.

    But, there not without reason - Moreso to the point that they ARE overall smaller and the crimes of the few echo more loudly than the actions of the mass.

    It's just very unfortunate that certain people have an outlook on life that all men MAY attack them, obviously walking through a rough part of town it's expected you MAY garner unwanted attention from undesirable people - but during broad daylight in a busy affluent city centre?

    Im not so sure, but flame away!

    Such a comfort for those who gets subjected to it. Really.

    "HEY, guess what? You had no statistical reason to fear rape because it's RARE!"
