I saw this in action in NC. So did my g/f- and it's a creepy thing to experience. There *are* women who get off on thinking a guy might want to rape them, or slap them around. We had several encounters with women who were *sure* I was beating my g/f, who were *sure* I was nearly ready to rip off pants and rape them, And were SURE I was a sexually repressed beast ready to go on a rampage!
My reaction? This was in the Bible Belt, in the country, and we dont live there any more. We live here in fla- where hispanic women RUN from me. Not all, but some- and in many of these cases, it's the uneducated, over christianized ones who are up to their mental necks in these fantasies. My g/f blames the "woman channels" on cable that show those murder shows where the guy kills for insurance and stuff.
When one is a normal, thinking person- and comes across sh*t like this (because honestly, crap is not even close to being a strong enough word!) it's enough to not only question the person this is spewing from, but in some cases. *themselves*, to the point of paranoia. I lost count of how many times I asked my g/f "Is this my fault- what the hell am I doing wrong to get reactions like this???" Until we literally started taking mental notes, and found some unsettling reasons as to why. I was in the clear... and it was the women- but not ordinary, every day women- these were church going, white christian women (usually 40-50s) who were so assured of their self importance, they'd run over kittens and step on chicks to remain assured. Their education would be in serious doubt, as some of the stuff we'd overhear was akin to listening to medieval people talk about meteorites..! The stigma I am sure has been spread around to almost all women (like anything else)- and probably has hit mainstream generalization.
I call these sort of women I ran into "Southern Chickens". Ever see chickens in a panic?
