No because I can drive my own car. I could also have a friend drive me or I could drive my friend home. I honestly just don’t have the money for Uber. If this is a fear you have I suggest you do the same.

Yes, actually. It's called anxiety and catastrophic thinking. They're just as rational as this lady's fear, but I don't call for a mass culling or otherwise controlling of a gender, cause I'm not a psychopath as well.

Seriously... How many Uber rides do you think there were in North America in the last two years? How insignificant of a fraction is this, and how does it compare to other crimes? Cause Uber drivers can do all sorts of crimes if they feel like it, that's the nature of a trust based transaction, and rational people generally trust each other, because only a tiny fraction will be terrible people.

Ikr I was honestly skeptical of Uber and Lyft too when it first came out. I figured something like this would happen as it is a combination of unwritten internet violations. Never meet with a stranger you spoke to online and you CERTAINLY shouldn’t get in a car with them.

I have got myself over it tbh. Like with eBay, the majority of people aren't going to fuck you over. I mean, I'm still careful, but there's a really important distinction in that I don't presume it'll happen. That's the problem with alot of these women are always scared arguments... They're utterly irrational. I have probably taken close to two hundred rides this year alone and not one bad thing has happened... And that's just me. It's as silly as not wanting to fly for fear of crashing. It is terrible when it happens, but it is highly unlikely and definitely not a grand scheme to keep you under-heel.

I'd also ask if she knows how many of those were male rapists. Her statistic has no point if the majority of the rapes were females raping men.

Not surprising. Every time i hear about claims of this sort, they're usually bullshit. It's hard not to immediately doubt every single one you hear these days.

[–]DylTheCoolGuy24729 points30 points  (4 children) | Copy

I ask you, weird Christmas hat lady, how many of those reports of rape do you think were actually true, and how many do you think were women trying to get money for compensation

[–]username2136[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

If she were to hear you I don’t think she would even want to think about that.

[–]kmelloh5 points6 points  (2 children) | Copy

If you asked her this question she’d just start screeching.

[–]username2136[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

Yeah and she is EXTREMELY block happy. I was blocked instantly on another bs post by her. However she is nowhere near as horrible as the feminist next door. She is the perfect example of a feminazi and there are millions of women who blindly follow her and, like the fnd, would get high off of male suffering.

[–]DylTheCoolGuy2470 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I’m in a discord server with multiple ‘feminists’ who are openly misandrist, constantly saying that men are disgusting pigs, that we should be eliminated or reduced to 10 percent of the worlds population (when we are already only about 45 percent or less atm. And worst of all, that women are the superior race, and lesbian relationships are superior to straight relationships and gay relationships. These people have been banned, but then let back in on the idea that they don’t be misandrist, big surprise, hat didn’t happen and they are still disgusting excuses for humans

[–]NeverTrustAVaJayJay6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

No, instead i fear she would accuse me of raping her because she wanted more money for shoes.

[–]SunnyGay735 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

men can get rapped too! i dont know why some people cant understand this.

[–]baronmad10 points11 points  (2 children) | Copy

Ohhh no rape bad, ever considered a little broader stance of the incidents that happens at Uber and Lyft.

Yeah, a professional livery service might be a biased source.

[–]username2136[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Well, it is true that they don’t give you a background check to be an Uber driver. I attempted to be one but I just lost interest.

[–]seatbelt-malfunction3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

These are all loud drunk girls, with skirts up passed their twat, probably hitting on the driver in the first place. Then realizing they did it in the morning and feelong regret raped.

[–]joker382 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

I guess it's allegations, not reports.

[–]GerinX1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

If she has this fear shouldn’t she implement ways to avoid needing an Uber or lyft? Why can’t one of her friends be the designated driver?

People got home from bars and clubs before the idea of Uber was ever consciences.

[–]zoro69021 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

If she knows that a small number of people are getting sexually assaulted from Uber, why would you continue to use it? I’ve only taken Uber when I’m visiting in big cities since it’s cheaper than a taxi, but you could always use the train or the metro if you have one where you live. If you’re that scared for your personal safety while using Uber, use something else or go buy a car.

[–]Ourmutant1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

If you're afraid of being raped every time you go outside, it's more likely you're just extremely paranoid than in danger of a rape epidemic

[–]RareMercury1 point2 points  (4 children) | Copy

How many where men raped

[–]username2136[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

No one knows. All of the articles I can find talk about the women who were victims. This post certainly wouldn't dare talk about that either.

[–]RareMercury0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Yah I know, boy I love this Male privilege

[–]username2136[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Yeah I love how men can just go and get their heads blown off in war whenever some country's leader woke up on the wrong side of the bed one morning while the women bitch about how the men are privileged.

[–]RareMercury0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Dont forget about how much we get paid I love all my money

[–]BornaBes001 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Yes she is right but let us see how many times uber is used in the same time, id say around more the few billion times, so that makes it less then 0.01% that some of that will happen to you, she also forgot that those victims could also be male

[–]username2136[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I dunno about billion but I am sure it is in the millions.

[–]UpperClassStout0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Hmmm.. Let me correct this...

Last year Uber recieved 235 reports of rape. This was found just to be 235 times the woman thought she deserved a better driver/car/etc. No actual rape involved.

280 reports of attempted rape. This was found to be 275 times the woman thought she deserved a better driver/car/etc. It was found to be 5 times that the driver made a cat-call or comment to them about how they look. No actual rape involved.

5981 reports of sexual abuse. This was found to be 5981 times the woman thought she was being disrespected or looked at funny. No actual sexual abuse involved.

"Rape" and "Sexual Abuse" have become a catch-all for the left. It means "someone looked at me and now I feel raped so they raped me" or "someone said something to me I found offensive so I feel raped so therefore they raped me".

Those terms mean literally nothing to anyone in 2019. The left has driven them right into the ground alongside racist, misogynist, bigot, homophobe, etc, etc..

The women of the left have pushed and pushed and pushed to the point where no one gives a shit if they were legitimately raped, because you honestly can't fucking believe them if they say they were. It's one of the most bullshit things someone can claim today.

[–]atamicbomb0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Do you have a source that all 235 reports were false?

[–]UpperClassStout1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

White knight all you want. M'lady isnt going to give it up.

Do you have a source that all 235 were true? Do you have court cases and verdicts? See how that works?

[–]hawknose330 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Honestly, I wouldn't have anyone use Uber or Lyft by themselves.

[–]Logandanielsboi0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Twitter feminists only talk to other twitter feminists. It’s just an echo chamber of bitter stupid man haters it does nothing

[–]weedislif0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

or just take the Bus or plan ahead

[–]Faqir_Indahbat0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

And how many of those reports turned out to be baseless and even proven to be false accusations made by vindictive females who tried to ruin a man's life because he wouldn't let the females get away with behaving inappropriately?

Almost all of them.

[–]Ikeriro900 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Just get your own car

[–]p4inki11er-1 points0 points  (8 children) | Copy

guys honestly its more likely for rape to happen to women like just statisticly lets be real. lets be reasonable here.

[–]skyofromantic21 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

I can't believe people here are basically denying women's feelings of fear of being raped. Yes, men get raped too. But there is a very real physical difference in men and women. A woman is more likely to be overpowered and more likely to fail at defending herself. Especially if she is small. Self defense weapons are not completely effective. Women have every right to be afraid and those feelings are valid. I personally would not ever take an Uber because I AM afraid. I have a realistic view of myself and the world and I KNOW a man can overpowered me if he wanted to. So I avoid risky situations. But not every woman will avoid risk to the same degree.

[–]p4inki11er0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

exactly, thank you.

[–]username2136[S] 0 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy

What does that have anything to do with this post?

[–]p4inki11er1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

if something is more likely to happen to me just because of my gender i would be more scared of it than the other gender. the title of this post flat out denies this. like how often do you guys worry about breast cancer? usualy never right because its not likely to happen to you, but on the other side i am sure you guys check your balls for lumps more often than you breasts for lumps. this is straight out a fact.

[–]username2136[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

True but here is my problem with this post is that:

  1. It never gave the total number of times Uber or Lyft was used so it never gave us an accurate reading on the situation and see if I’d really worth fear mongering it and scaring women to the point where they would never leave their house and make something of themselves.

  2. It assumes all reports were made without any indication that the accuser was lying or was possibly mistaken in their accusation.

  3. It makes it look like taking Uber or Lyft was their only option, as if they had a gun pointed at their head forcing them to take it whenever they wondered about transportation from point A to point B.

With all this information that is left out or based on assumption, it is hard for me to draw conclusions here.

[–]p4inki11er0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

okey fair enough, but you acknowledge the fact that its more likely to get raped as a women right?

[–]username2136[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Legally yes, but like I said, this kind of thing is irrelevant. My entire point to posting this is that it seems that she is leaving so much information out that it almost looks like she is trying to hide something in order to make this problem seem more widespread than it actually is.

Not only do I have evidence form RAINN itself that rape culture does not exist in westernized countries and that perpetuating this myth it is actually harmful in the effort in reducing rapes (https://www.rainn.org/images/03-2014/WH-Task-Force-RAINN-Recommendations.pdf), "made to penetrate" is not a part of the legal definition of rape so who knows how many men are actually victims.

[–]Faqir_Indahbat-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

Not even close to being true. in fact, many male Uber/Lyft drivers have been sexually assaulted by female passengers. And the companies (and police) don't take the complaints that male victims make seriously.



You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
