50. Nice try trying to put words in my mouth. Nowhere did I state that people think they are more likely

to die from snakes or spiders than by being killed by a man. I appreciate all the hard work disproving a point that was never made. Everybody knows that you stand a much higher chance of dying in an auto accident than by a snakebite but most people are more scared of snakes than driving or riding in a car. I know I am.

I have no problems and support your comments concerning Sandra Bland, the fundies, and the repugs.

I abhor all domestic violence and any violence against women. I have a special hatred of rapists.

Where I differ with you is the expectation that women should fear being killed by a man more than men even though men are much more likely to be killed by a man. It makes sense that if any problem affects one sex three times more than the other sex, then the sex that is most affected should be the most fearful of the problem. There seems to be a tinge of sexism in thinking otherwise. Like maybe you think that women are mentally weaker and should cower more in fear when faced with the same problem as a man. My opinion is that women are just as strong mentally as men so why would they be more fearful than men of dying at the hand of a man when it is much more likely to happen to men. Alternatively, maybe you think that a man's life is just not as important as a woman's life so their fears shouldn't count as much.

Also, your comment that the only real fear that men have is that they will be laughed at by women is totally sexist and insulting.

Only Ivana knows what she was thinking. I can imagine what she was thinking because a very close loved one of mine woke up to a knife to her throat and was brutally raped so I know what she went through. Ergo, my intense hatred of rapists.
