RE: That guy is an #@%hole.

True. He does actually make some valid points, but he undermines his message by being so shi++y about it. I watched this girl's video and I have to admit that some of it made me cringe, and I had the same thought that some of the situations she describes simply sound like a bad neighborhood where everyone would take precautions, male or female.

He is too dismissive on some of the points. I don't live my life constantly in the kind of fear she describes (though perhaps I am naive). However, I do avoid going out for a run or walk alone when it is dark, sadly, even though early AM or after work is often the most convenient. I have had some scary experiences, even in broad daylight. This guy seems to have no awareness of what it's like to know someone could overpower you.

Also, a rape is a rape is a rape, reported 35 minutes or 35 days or 35 years after the fact.

And while it is true that women suffer far worse oppression in the ME, that is no excuse not to do better where we can. That is like saying I should not strive for a raise and promotion because my neighbors are unemployed. I'm already better off than them at status quo, so why try.

The current feminist movement is too much for me (and I do consider myself pretty liberal). I do have concerns about a lot of what I'm seeing and hearing, but perhaps an over-correction was due.
