Hardly surprising but interesting nonetheless. I think it's important to accept that and have an outlet for it; whether it be going to hardcore punk shows or playing a violent sport. I think Lili made the point about bottling things up and then they come out in bad ways. I worked in music venues for years and you'd always have fights at the Aslan concert. Never had a single problem with a goth in my life, they're invariably sweethearts. Anyone who says they won't listen to something "because it's too depressing" always triggers alarm bells for me.I am in the middle of teaching a course on genetics and behaviour to undergrads. One of the main points I make is that generally it is very hard to say "This genetic profile gives you this behavioural profile" - i.e. there's no gay gene, no intelligence gene, no autism gene, no "being a prick" gene. But I immediately follow it up with the point that there are some obvious, reproducible and undeniable effects of genetics on behaviour. The number one predictor of violent behaviour in humans (and mammals more generally), more than anything, is the presence or absence of a Y chromosome. Culture, upbringing, nationality, class, etc. are drops in the ocean compared to it.

FWIW I don't think a woman has ever been mean to me, bar the usual teenage humiliations.
and family members, and teachers in school, and... but it's the complete strangers we can be truly confident we're NOT to blame for... and that's how you start to think. I spent most of my thinnest years wearing baggy jumpers and jeans to hide my figure in an effort to stop attracting pervy comments.... the relentlesss onslaught of innuendo, unwanted physical contact, threats of violence etc that most women deal with from complete strangers from a very early age.
