So safety experts and police are presumtious and sexist too.

If they refer to women who use their own sense of judgement and self-preservation as 'stupid and reckess', then yes. Oh by the way, I follow many of the above suggestions which is another reason why I feel safe walking around this city, and it is presumptuous of you to assume that I am not already more than aware of basic safety precautions. Perhaps you did not read my comment all the way through before you responded. I developed my awareness of threats to my safety living in relatively high crime neighbourhoods in Toronto. I don't need any lessons in self-defense, thank you very much.

You know what else makes our streets safe? Lots of people walking around freely. Fear and suspicion have a tendency to be self-fulfilling.
