In London you are never alone. There are always people around.

Hardly anybody in parts of The City at weekends.
Those who give up their freedoms for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both.

I don't think I've walked anywhere alone at night very much at all. A couple of times as a student.

Where I live (in Sweden), it's not so bad but of course I would be wary if I walked in the city during nighttime... As long as there's people around I don't feel like it's a big problem for me.

Agreed, I think its the need to be wary that the article and comments were highlighting, there are some scary experiences people have posted about!

So you see no correlation between men sitting at home behind their computers watching the degradation of women and those doing it on the street?
Thats like pointing out the differences between apples and oranges when we are talking about ALL fruit.
Willfully endemic and convenient myopia.
Men need to recognise there is a problem and they are both the cause and the solution.


You are probably extremely well informed about such things.... Reg.

Also, could someone explain how this thread ended up in members chat please? I'm pretty certain I started it in general chat, hoping to get input not just from FF members but all-comers. Looks like it's been moved
thanks

Another one of the mysteries of FF......I hate it when my threads get hijacked by reasoned debate and actual opinions when all I wanted was fantasy fodder too....perhaps you should repost it in motoring where the scenario could include repeatedly trying to start a car in your heels (what else!) and being harassed by a miniature man who you could crush under your spike heels that you wear to leave marks on wooden floors before getting the AA out to actually start the car (Too much choke luv) so you can run over some small animal. Hope this helps :wink:

The General Section is a bit of a wasteland at the moment, so a mod probably moved it here because it's an important topic and there is more chance of a discussion here.

I take your point about The City, by which I guess you mean the square mile, but after dark I do think "cites" more generally can be dangerous. City centres seem to be well populated and there's "safety in numbers" as the article comments make clear, Certainly, though if walking through parks or some less desirable areas it starts to feel a whole lot less safe very quickly IMO
