Why I don’t support “Believe all women”

I do not disagree with you at all. However, knowing how difficult it is to prove a charge or rape in a court of law why are so many women careless about meeting almost total strangers in circumstances and in locations where their security & safety is "iffy" at best? I don't get that at all.
Perhaps because The heart is a lonely hunter? Perhaps the victory of optimism over caution?

Something drives people (not just women) to go beyond their comfort zone, in an effort to reach out & make contact with another person. & sometimes that drive simply overpowers the instinct for some caution.

Probably some combination of those factors. WANTING to believe something very often overpowers common sense.

My son the cop tells me that many women have a false sense of security. They don't see any reason why women can't go anywhere a man can and not be threatened. That is a downside of the old womens' lib movement and it's current extensions. Thousands of years of subservience to men then the "liberation" of women has done this. It'll take a generation or 3 to 'train" society otherwise.

Yeah, your point? A wife is not the only woman relationship a person has, one would seriously hope.

That is very true.

Never said it wasn't the only relationaship with a woman a person has.
The implication was that it is a far DIFFERENT relationship, that's all.

A factor is that men and women communicate so differently.
