6pm curfew.

Guess I’m sleeping in the office then,
Seriously though a 6pm curfew would not work, for one the I don’t think your average sex attacker is going to care much about breaking s curfew.


T goes without saying that anyone who feels they csn commit these crimes is a deplorable person and one is too many, the argument over not all men and curfews isn’t going to make a difference.

Unless you live in some absolute ghetto, the chances of a woman being violently attacked in the streets is so remote it shouldn't even warrant a second thought. You're more likely to die or be seriously injured in a car crash, but I bet you don't bat an eyelid about getting into a car. So no, I don't see why all men need to be villified and punished simply because some women have an irrational paranoia and lack of perspective.
I agree it's statistically unlikely but at the same time it should never happen and there should be measures in place to ensure this doesn't happen, not the ridiculous stuff some of the leftards are saying but more practical measures.

Exactly! If they can break the law so easily they'd have no problem breaking a curfew :yep:

Also the man who does the crime isn't going to go through the curfew.

The curfew stuff was nonsense anyway.

It's pointless. Idk what we can do to reduce the attacks on women AND men (because it can happen to both, idky people say that men aren't affected by it). The chances of getting s*xually *ssulted are way too high (1 in 5 women I believe, not sure what its like for men), but I know for sure a curfew won't do anything to stop them.

Education for sure. I feel like pretty much everyone knows rape is unacceptable, but obviously you get those who do it, but other sexual assaults like groping I feel like some men think they can get away with it. Tougher sanctions as well.

I totally agree with the tougher sanctions. It disgusts me how some people can get away with causing endless trauma by getting just 2 years. Education as well, I also believe people should be made to do self defence classes to better defend themselves against such disgusting people.

It upsets me how some people can be looked down upon for being r*ped and reporting it because it "ruins their reputation" or whatever. People NEED to learn!!

They would also be safe in the knowledge that no other men would be around to potentially step in and defend the woman.

I don't get why they don't do lie detectors to get rape convictions up?

I get that they're not 100%, but if you give a man a test, and the woman he is alleged to rape a test and they both come back saying he raped her ...then i don't see why they can't lock him up, as the chances of the test being wrong twice on the same group of people is miniscule.

Lie detectors cant be used as evidence at court because they can be pretty inaccurate, even though it isn't by much, they're still not counted as valid "evidence"

As I said on another thread: for the curfew, define "man".

Though OP is a troll, I'm genuinely curious how someone can get around the minefield of issues associated with that idea.

why would you be at risk?

The only thing i can think of is if people can tell you are gay by just looking at you, and you encountered a rowdy group of lads on a fri/sat night and they ended up hitting you or something
Not that poster - but I'm like a twig, if someone was so inclined they could easily rob me with little actual resistance. I'm just as easy a target as a woman of the same sort of build.

Dunno if it's controversial to say, but the worry you should have is more correlated with your ability to defend yourself/how easy of a target you look than necessarily your gender. To say men necessarily have less to worry about just isn't true.

yeah, perhaps in general men feel more like they are able to defend themselves so worry less.

i have to admit when i go out late at night, i usually see much more men than women about which leads me to believe a lot of women avoid going out at night...

I'm not sure it's entirely that, I think men also just have a higher overall tolerance for risk than women. Whilst I'm fairly strong, I'm sure the average seasoned criminal is, if not stronger than me, at least far more adept at violence than I am, so I still don't really fancy my chances. But I also know that I'm unlikely to ever be put in that situation so I just accept it as a remote risk and don't really worry about it.

I don't think the radical feminists help in anyway by painting all men as potential predators. It's bound to make some women more paranoid.

Indeed. If the criminal is already willing to break the law by committing assault, a curfew is going to do nothing to deter them.

cc, know a few who have been stabbed to death but that's not the point of this thread. All of it is bad and must be rectified.

This is just the latest news round because covid is dying down and there's nothing negative to talk about to get views.
I completely agree that all deaths are bad, but it angers me that feminists are allegedly advocating for equal rights across the board but never seem to mention how men are more frequently victims of: homelessness, suicide, murder, longer sentences (for the same crime) and often do not get custody of their children simply due to the stereotype that females are better caregivers.

Have you considered learning self defence, getting shooting lessons or having weapons training?
I've been going to krav maga classes and gun club for years.
Being slim and never allowing weight to exceed 8 stone doesn't automatically mean being helpless to protect oneself against ill intentioned criminals and sexual predators.

They will bend what they say and change it to suit them.

That’s why I don’t like the majority of posts regarding this incident on social media.

It’s causing too much division. Messages must be sent in a non-hostile manner, otherwise people won’t listen or change.
