    I see dems fighting an apparent war against women.

    I see conservatives desperately trying to pretend their war against women isn't happening.

    You call that a "war?"

    Kind of weak, if you ask me.

    The moniker of "war" in culture war is a bit much, but it is the argument for dominance of one particular aspect of ideology opposed to another particular aspect of ideology.

    That rarely ends. Cato the Elder was engaged in his own culture war, with many parallel discussions of masculinity and femininity.

    It is weak, women are winning the liberal "war on women", and none of that changes how liberals apparently treat women.

    We are not talking about harassing or scary situations in this thread... we are talking about a woman walking down the street past a guy just sitting there who asks her how she is doing. THAT is what the thread is about because THAT is what is being called harassment and THAT is what is supposedly fearful to women, and you. See the difference...

In this case, the external stimuli are unknown men with unknown intentions and mental states making unsolicited comments on your body. The fear of something happening is certainly "realistic".

    And, for the record, here's the story of a women who ended up being murdered for not responding to a man's "catcall" :
    We are talking about men sitting there saying hi and asking "how are you doing". Keep it in perspective... jeez

    I used that analogy to illustrate why your argument that frequency dictates how "realistic" a fear does not apply to all situations not to argue that catcalling was the same as domestic violence. I assumed that you would be open to my example since you used an example involving tsunamis which is much less related to the subject matter than my domestic violence example. Why is it "not in perspective" for me to use an example involving domestic violence, but it is "in perspective" for you to use an example involving tsunamis?
