That's true. I agree with you. My mom is also against abortion even if the woman gets raped she still thinks she has no right to get an abortion. Yes I do know some pro choice men.

No, I do not want for these men to be raped in prison.
You're lot better of a person than I am. If some man raped me I'd want him to be raped in prison everyday. I'm an eye for an eye person. If a woman rapes a man which is rare I'd want her to be raped in prison everyday too.

That's true.

No I've never read it. I read a book called When God Was A Woman by Merlin Stone. Supposedly the first major monotheistic religion was a Goddess worshiping one. But it was misandrist like the God religions are misogynist. I hate both of them.

I’m always very aware of my surroundings and there’s enough random early morning dog walkers to feel not completely alone. I wish we all could feel this safe more consistently.

I did read young men are statistically the most at risk from physical (not sexual) assault but most people don’t perceive them as being more at risk. I think we’re all rightfully aware of the awful sexual motives some attackers may be harbouring against women.

That said my young son just got back from a European city break and he said he was aware his female companion was targeted by aggressive beggars when she was alone. Whereas he wasn’t…. He believes because he looks like he can handle himself (probably true as he’s visibly muscular).
Yes, men are more likely to be murdered. Women are more likely to be raped. I've heard rare cases where women have raped men and even beat them to death. That's why I'm against chivalry. If a woman attacks a man physically in any way he should treat her like a man and fight back as such. I admit that sometimes I deserved my *** kicking's by men. Not all of them though.

The average man is more likely to be able to fight back than a woman, if a man attacks. Yeah there can be women who are black belts in karate for example. Or she has a gun. Even if a man attacked what he assumes is a smaller and weaker man, he could be wrong. And if the victim is skilled with and has a gun, no amount of fist fighting will save him.

Either gender is vulnerable and it’s not right for anyone to be attacked in any way. And as a woman I feel more vulnerable.

I haven’t been physically beaten by anyone. If I had been beaten by a man, I’d probably feel like I wished I was physically stronger to defend myself. I don’t resent being the “weaker sex”.

I do and always have felt fearful of being attacked by a man. I try to keep myself at low risk. I have been with men thinking this protects me from being attacked by men.

I hate being small and weak. What disgusts and angers me the most is child abuse.

It always angers me that men respect another man's property rather than the woman herself. I don't want a man in that way but if I did then maybe some of this stuff wouldn't have happened to me.
