Women should be - or are - more fearful than men?

Women because they are women, they should be afraid of more things than they fear men? Women should be, by their definition, sensitive and fearful, and vulnerable? I read somewhere that we're afraid because this feeling is a loss - physical, psychological, mental, of any kind would be a loss. And then, if you are not afraid, you do not feel you have to lose? Or only when you do not fear when you do not have to lose? I know that does not necessarily mean the absence of fear, courage there, and more than that, I find that sometimes it's okay to be afraid. Fear before a new project will motivate us to do things better. The fear you feel walking the streets at night, you will be more cautious, more careful. Fear can empower, to bring more awareness of things. But I'm talking about a level of fear that can be controlled. Of course, I'm afraid of many things. We thought some time ago that I'm afraid when alone in the house, darkness and emptiness that my house ill throw in a world of imagination, fed all sorts of fears. But a fear that trying to control it, sometimes I goes, sometimes less but what I think is important ... do not run away from it, rather I try to make them. So women should be - or are - more fearful than men? The explanation could be that they are - are weaker - more exposed? Or it could just be a bias behind which we hide?

I guess there are numerous fearless women out there. Yes, some of us fear a lot of things. However, we only have to face our fears then we no longer fear anymore. Some men have fears too. They just don't show that they are afraid. Hapy mylotting.

generally speaking i believe women are more fearful than men though there might be some exceptions. Women are more afraid of the dark particularly if alone, afraid of heights, afraid of small creepy insects, and so many things that to men are senseless fears or situations they feel as adventurous.

There are two shades for Fear .Negative fear brings us sadness and positive fear brings us happiness,means we should fear about doing wrong things,we should fear about our mistakes.In case of women they are sensitive.It is the natural nature of women.But any one can control fear by practice and you know one thing the best way to overcome from a fear is to find the root of the fear and i can say that if u find your fear root you definitely over come from that

I have not think of it until I read your discussion. What I was thinking that men and women are equal and they have the same fears. Only because women are more cautious than men, we may conclude that women are more fearful than men. When we were born, we were made to think that men are more powerful than women. They are strong and fearless.

It has been said that eomen are weaker than mrn. This might hold true gor those women who rely evrrything yo yheir parynrts. I mean if a woman is too dependent on his man on so many things, she would feel really afraid to fo thongs or go to placrs on her own. it is like having no confidence that you can do something without anyone beside you.
