    Do we just save the smart? For a long time, band-aids were matched to Fitzpatrick Skin tone One. Does that mean that band-aids were not useful? No, of course not. But a lot of people still fell through the cracks. I don't object to making 18-25 year old women safer, I want ALL women to be safer. That is my objection.
    Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.

    I'd applaud, and cry "More!".

    I guess we're different. Quelle surprise.

    It does look like you're making the perfect the enemy of the good there DB.

    The thing that worries me is a comment like this, which makes me wonder if they have properly normalised just for the sheer number of possibilities for 2 people coming into contact.

    "What we would normally think of as unsafe spaces, such as dark laneways or being out on a Saturday night, were really not the kinds of experiences that women and girls wanted to share," she said."

    If 10 people go through a dark lane and 1 gets harassed, that place is more dangerous than a metro station that 10,000,000 people go through where 100k get harassed. (Numbers obviously just to illustrate).
