What is an anima?

Mel

Googled it out for u-
The feminine inner personality, as present in the unconscious of the male. It is in contrast to the animus, which represents masculine characteristics.

I did read something about that.
Apparently, everybody has both a male and female side.
I read, that when people get depressed, they go more to the side, they are not. Women go to their male side, and men...
Interesting reading.

But your question. I dont think a man being too much on his female side, will give him the body we women have. It is usually our bodies, which makes certain men prey on us.

Unnurse

My opinion exactly.
One reason I object to this thread, is because of the platform it has given some people, to hurl abuse and name call.

From what somebody said, to me by private mail, I think I may not be making myself clear, at all, on this thread. If this is the case, please excuse the ranting and raving.

This is what I think
I agree with Emma and Unnurse.

Unfortunate incidents happen, no matter how careful we are trying to be. If a women is a victim of one of these incidents, this is not because she is stupid or naive. If this were the case, women would be stupid, for going out on a date, with a man and being alone in his car, with him. Or staying late at work, with only the security man in building. Afterall, we do not know if these men are rapists. Just how many precations can one take, and still enjoy ones life?

Quoting Mr Gecko

ok let me get technical.

there are more odds for a woman than a man been a victim.

no one is going to rape me. any woman who wishes to do so is very welcome to it.

i am physically stronger! and bigger than most asians.
asians would need to hunt in packs to take me on, with a woman that is not the case.

ok if they have weapons then that is a different ball game all together no matter how big or strong one may be.

lets be realistic here, if i was a thief i would much prefer to rob a woman. i know mentally
they cant rise to the occasion in taking me on physically or even running after me. if she can then she is
one scary and brave woman. and probably is not even a woman!. no one wants to be a hero...but men always want to be.
men dont think when in certain life and death situations. they react on impusle. the majority of women do. that is the major difference.

having said that about the women if i was a thief and see a total male nerd on his own then one would rob him too!

all in all its how you present yourself, but there is very few nerds out there. one has to look the part,
be confident, act like they know what they are doing, were they are going. dont look cluless in unfamilar territorys.

paul j - im aware that in the uk in particular in england street kids hunt in packs. i lived there myself and in lots of small towns theres kids in gangs of 6-10 just hanging about looking to see who there next victim might be. sadly i have only ever seen this in england in all the countrys that i have travelled to. and what happened to you is very unfortunate and probably 1 in 100,000 chance of been a victim of this crime...sadly you were this 1. as they say. you were probably in the wrong place at the wrong time.

of course you get gangs everywhere but i saw lot more of it in england and they were up to no good. when i was in the usa i saw it too but they just minded there own business and never looked twice at me.

Thanks Olaf;)
