44. Obvious we are not on the same page.

For you to say that "The only actual fear men have is that women won't think the men are dominant and better, so are scared "to death" of being laughed at" is just pure hogwash and shows that you obviously don't have a clue about what men fear. Most men's biggest fear is for the health, safety and well being of their family just like women. Many fear they will not be able to keep or get the woman they love, fear they may lose their livelihood in the next downturn, fear they are not raising their children right, fear they are not saving enough for retirement. Some men fear they will get caught cheating or caught stealing or committing some other criminal act or that their children may get into trouble. Way down the list, if even on the list, for the vast majority of men is the fear that a woman might laugh at him. Yet you state that is their only actual fear.

Do you really think that a man who is sitting by his daughter's hospital bed while she fights for her life from an accident or disease has only one actual fear and that is that some woman might walk in to the room and laugh at him? Just absurd. There are dregs of society everywhere and if there are men whose only fear is being laughed at by a woman who doesn't think men are dominant, they certainly qualify as dregs. But I guarantee you they are atypical. If you live in an area where all the men seem like that then my advice to you is get the hell out of there. I sure wouldn't want to live in a community like that. I've never seen a community like that.

If you look at your actuarial stats, you'll find that for women ages 18-44, homicide is responsible for less than 4% of deaths. Although I would guess that most of these homicides are committed by men, women do kill women so the chances of a woman getting killed by a man is even less. Of course even one is one too many. Looking at that same actuarial data you are so fond of, homicide is responsible for over 11% of deaths for men in that same age group. Again, I think we can assume that men are doing the vast majority of the killing. So based on the data, men should have a much, much, greater fear of being killed by a man than a woman should be. Almost a three times greater fear.

Hitler was not all that atypical. History is replete with madmen who take power and then have their countries or kingdoms commit horrible acts against other peoples and their own people. Stalin, Mao, Hirohito, Pol Pot, to name a few of the more recent ones. The vast majority of citizens in all those countries were decent people who just wanted to live their lives but instead got caught up in the propaganda and nationalism of the dictator.
