Sometimes when I put on work attire I feel. . . manly. Not always a bad feeling. All the sudden people don't get nervous when I want to go someplace alone. Why is it that? Statistically speaking men are attacked more then women are... this could very well be to the severe actions to protect women. Don't get me wrong I don't want to be attacked nor am I making fun of being careful.
Here's an example: There was a young man in his early 20's who went off to travel in Europe for 6 months, alone. His parents thought nothing of it. The young man got pick pocketed and mugged while he was there and it was brushed aside with an "ah shucks".
If it had been a girl, not only would most parents not let her go on the trip at all but if she had gotten mugged and pick pocketed it would have been a federal case.
My question is not really a matter of why is there concern for women but why is there not any concern for men? "More of a man if they are on the receiving end of some random violence?"
All the same and all very different I know.
