NO ONE is saying that pain is less for men than women. Pain is not something I’m even addressing. I’m addressing the VALIDITY OF FEAR as it relates to the possibility of personal harm at the hands of another. So please stop trying to equate one with the other, and stop using my words, out of context, to prove a point no one was ever arguing against in the first place. If you think men have just as much reason to FEAR women as women have to fear men, support your argument. If you are trying to make some other point, then write about it yourself and field THOSE comments.
