John — I have 2 dogs — they are friendly, but they are a breed that many people think is dangerous. I get bad reactions to them at least once a week, sometimes people are rude about it, and that is when I respond in kind. The thing is — men and boys are a lot more dangerous than dogs. These people have a lot more to fear from men and boys than they do from my dogs or just about anyone else’s. This is what I tell them ‘you should be more wary walking past 2 young men than walking past my dogs, as the men are much more likely to do you harm’.
This has nothing to do with being ‘anti male’. It is the reality — clearly documented in nearly every country in the world.
