    Why are women so afraid

    So reading these forums lately(lots of posts by a few certain members about this) as well as a post a women shared on facebook got me thinking why are some women so scared of men been potential rapist, i have also seen women cross the road when approaching then cross back down the block to avoid walking past me and other men. 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

    It's a dumb "stereotype"; it's just as dumb as saying every African-American I bump into will mug me.

    Really annoys me when women have these ridiculous preconceptions about men.
    I can't stand feminism, it's turned our world in to women can say and do what ever the fuck they want about men, and we just have to eat it.

    I don't think so, but it never hurt anyone to be a little cautious.
    they say that doors open up soon as you find the missing key
    that’s probably why I’m in this bitch shining

    All men are rapists like all women are sluts.

    That's disgusting.
    I'm gonna start walking around with the notion that all women are dirty gold diggers that only want to marry to kill you off for your money.

    Honestly, that is absolutely disgusting.

    I avoid all women on the streets to ensure none of them accuse me of sexual harassment if I bump into them :P

    It's a "Men are wrong" world. We just have to deal with it and hope it passes and equality will eventually get here.

    Don't trust strangers, even less so when it's dark outside. Even less so if I'm alone. It's not that I think every man is one, it's that I don't want to risk one being one if I meet them alone. Doesn't hurt to be cautious, rather avoid them.
    Close your eyes and smile.

    Not being able to defend yourself in the majority of situations where this would happen makes you want to avoid said situations to even be able to happen....
    I don't believe every one is, but all it takes is *one*

    Women have to take certain precautions like not walking alone at night because we face a higher risk of being attacked, it isn't that women assume men are rapists; it's just about being careful.

    do you constantly walk around thinking all men are rapist, do you live a constant state of fear.
    You don't have to fear all men to be in fear. Do you constantly walk around thinking all residents of poor/bad neighbourhoods are addicted murderous muggers? No. That doesn't mean it's wrong to be apprehensive about walking, alone, in one at night.

    Yes, because I was suggesting that it's perfectly normal to sit in a room full of men and think that every single one of them is a rapist, and that they are just going to gang rape you in the starbucks of a shopping center plaza.

    Clearly.

    so how do you go about avoiding it? this article that a person shared went on with all sorts, such as if in a lift make small talk with all the men, so you can get a good look at their faces because this will deter them(through the reasoning you will be able to give a sketch/pick them out).
    So from what you said its easier to assume the worst of all men to protect yourself?

    Can't say I've encountered anything like this. But then again, I'm a guy.

    And personally, I'd rather get mugged and murdered than raped. It's not a fair comparison, but still.

    Average difference in physical strength.

    I say hello. I'm not as strong as the *average* male.


    Either way even I get a bit anxious at night. Yes I'm a single male.

    I get the strength thing but that is really no different than a mugger using a weapon.
    Also i haven't looked at the stats, but aren't more rapes committed by someone the victim knows, if so how does this affect you when you alone with any man

    It's not every man. Also internal threat assessment is a totally natural thing, if a man looks threatening for whatever reason and makes a woman uncomfortable she'll try to avoid him. Same as a man would avoid someone that made them uncomfortable if possible. Better safe than sorry and all that. It kind of sucks for you but it probably shouldn't offend you.

    A lot of men go for that "I'm a badass" look of some description, and one of the downsides of that is that random women will cross the street and avoid you. Either because you pull the look off or you don't look like a total weirdo.

    As for not being afraid of muggers or murderers ... I guess it depends where you live and where you are. I've been in some places where I wouldn't hesitate to walk alone at night, and I've been to some places where I'd be hesitant to walk alone in the middle of the day. Actually the second time I got mugged it was in the middle of the day in a public park. Go figure.

    But really, don't think about it too much, if a woman avoids you for whatever reason, no real harm is done by it and it makes her feel safer.

    WTF OP, where the hell are you getting this from? I am a female who did my undergrad in Chicago (with the campus in a really really crappy part of the city--look up where U of C's main campus is) and I never worried about any of these things. And I'm 5'8 115 lbs soaking wet.

    I carry mace and took a self defense course when I turned 16 and my dad taught me to shoot at an early age, I can handle myself and most able-bodied women can too.

    I think you're begging the question. I've never heard this. It sounds crazy.
