a little something to think about:

"Halfway through the new special,Louis C.K. starts talking about how dating is an act of bravery for all involved. “The male courage, traditionally speaking, is that he decided to ask” a woman out. (Note the careful caveat, “traditionally speaking.”) And if the woman says yes, “that’s her courage.” That kind of courage, he says, is beyond his imagining. “How do women still go out with guys, when you consider that there is no greater threat to women than men?We're the number one threat to women! Globally and historically, we’re the number one cause of injury and mayhem to women.” A moment later he adds, speaking for all men, “You know what our number one threat is? Heart disease.”"

Liv – I caught your subtle inference first; pass through.  Wisdom would have had me leave it at that.  Thanks for not assuming the worst of me. 

 

 

 

Hope – Hi Darlin --Thank you too.

RMac,

 

If you read in between the lines in my comment, you will see that I agree with you that women are the no 1 threat to men....too many women, lying, and cheating, hussle, etc which men invariably get drawn into, barring genetic factor and diet are predisposing to a poor heart, LOL!

 

So in a veyr subtle way, yup, I guess you are right.

 

Liv.

Quoting Dakota35:

Hello 90210dallas,   Could you please give me a reference to your research on this matter?  I have searched and have not found any info backing up what you state.  In fact heart disease effects more women than men.


Hi ALL- 

 

Once again, I've no clue where some of these yo-yo's pop out from.. MEN are NOT the #1 cause of harm to women and the man who made this statement is INCORRECT! 

 

HEART DISEASE "IS" considered #1 killer to men, but guess what? According to the CDC, HEART DSEASE is the #1 KILLER-- PERIOD... And is TRUE of women also. 

 

I'm not trying to"diminish" violence against women, OR men... 

 

I have been a "victim" myself---

 

But individuals such as this yo-yo guy making that statement should stop spouting off UNTRUE statistics...  and people should stop repeating things without backing it up ith FACT... 

 

It is men as him, and women, who speak so illy of men all the time, that leave a "bad taste" in everyone's mouth about dating..

 

I mean seriously--- WOMEN, IF YOU WANT TO DOG MEN ALL THE TIME, WHY BE ON A DATE SITE ANYWAY?

 

MEN---- IF YOU THINK WOMEN ARE SO AWFUL, WHY ARE YOU HERE??  

 

 DIRECTLY FROM THE HORSES'S MOUTH! (CDC)

 

 Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States, killing 292,188 women in 2009—that’s 1 in every 4 female deaths.1

 

    • Although heart disease is sometimes thought of as a "man's disease," around the same number of women and men die each year of heart disease in the United States. Despite increases in awareness over the past decade, only 54% of women recognize that heart disease is their number 1 killer.2

 

    • Heart disease is the leading cause of death for African American and white women in the United States. Among Hispanic women, heart disease and cancer cause roughly the same number of deaths each year. For American Indian or Alaska Native and Asian or Pacific Islander women, heart disease is second only to cancer.3

 

    • About 5.8% of all white women, 7.6% of black women, and 5.6% of Mexican American women have coronary heart disease.4

 

    • Almost two-thirds (64%) of women who die suddenly of coronary heart disease have no previous symptoms.4 Even if you have no symptoms, you may still be at risk for heart disease.

 

    • THERE YOU GO FOLKS-- STRAIGHT OFF THE CDC!!

What a typical lousy attitude from a single man.

 

I suppose he hasn't heard that married men live much longer than single men do and what do you think is the reason?  Because wives take good care of their husbands!! That's why!! I will stop here, lol, I could go on a tirade right now.

 i doubt it.the majority of serial killers, child molesters, dictators,rapists, & terrorists are men. when a man goes on a date with a stranger, he hopes she does not laugh at him.when a woman goes on a date with a stranger, she hopes he does not kill her.

 

Dallas, I did not say that men faced a greater risk.  I would not depreciate women's risk and am saddened that such risk exists.  I am grateful that women nonetheless continue to seek male friends, lovers, and mates.

It's interesting that the No 1 threat to women is men and the No 1 threat to men is heart disease!

 

Y'all know the pre-disposing factors to heart diseases, barring genetic factor? 

 

Very interesting indeed!

 

Thanks for sharing Dallas.

 

Liv.
