I didn’t really intend to watch quite so much true crime youtube, but over time it just sort of happened. There’s a pretty good chance it’s made me even more paranoid than I already was, but if I were a woman I’d be petrified all the time. Realistically going someplace alone as a woman isn probably not that dangerous if you know the area, but the danger level is never zero. It’s unfortunate that we can’t all trust each other, but that’s reality & it’s important to respect that. Watch out for others, help if you can. Heroes aren’t always made on purpose.

Percentage wise, if you look at the statistics, you’re safe.

However, there’s also, know your area, as there’s a difference between highest murder rate in the US and safest city in the US. Then there’s also, the news scaring people, which they want you to be scared and angry and turned in, but it makes for a much worse scene.

As a woman, I am statistically more likely to be sexually assaulted by someone I know, and murdered by my husband.

I mean, I wouldn’t wander around a strange city at midnight or anything, and I don’t live in a country with high crime rates, so YMMV.

Re: comic. Jogging does indeed suck,I am with them there.

That unfortunately is very true. Unless you go around really bad neighborhoods with lots of drug use.

I will say this much the ID channel is Lifetime TV on crack and is probably responsible for keeping more than a few men single….

Yikes. Regardless of her looks, she’s still an independent adult. She can dress how she wants. Even being a short, cute female, it’s humiliating to have people treat you less than you are.

Tho she does look younger since the latest story arch started. Her curves have all but disappeared. I can kinda excuse it since she wears baggy clothes and since she is shorter, she is normally shown from the waist up, hiding her hips.

I had to stop watching true crime earlier this year, as I found it was giving me massive loads of anxiety. As fascinating as it can be, it’s not worth the stress..

It doesn’t help working retail to see the harshness of people, and being yelled at by the mentally ill and homeless, as well as some personal trauma mixed in. Yeah, maybe watching stories for months about innocent people getting brutally murdered wasn’t the best idea.

I like true crime shows.

It reminds me of all the extra work I’d have to do to get away with murder. It’s one more thing that keeps people alive. That and coffee.

The User I’m dealing with on the phone right now…would be on the list of people that wouldn’t be missed. No jury would convict me not a true jury of my peers. (embittered cranky old IT workers )

In theory a woman should be able to wander around naked without a problem. In reality the time I saw it happening I called 911 as she appeared to have made a serious error in judgement and was being chased by a fellow with a large knife. Sorry I do not know the end of the story but the police did arrive in time. It happened in Trail BC Canada in 1996ish and unfortunately was also witnessed by my then 10 yr. old son.

Absolutely sexist, but women should be able to be in possession of mace, pepper spray, taser, etc. anywhere.

It’s not fair. The cool air, the sun setting, the stars popping up, the moon shining..Walking around at night can be so lovely. Ruined by monsters.

The danger level is never zero for anyone. It’s not just women who are at risk; ask any man who’s had his wallet taken.
