As of 2002, the National Insititure of Justice estimated that over one million American women are stalked annually. About half of these stalkers are "intimate partners" of the women they are stalking.
Rougly 370,000 men are stalked annually.

And a public service announcement advising women not to drive. ;) " Your pretty little mind simply can't cope with the motor car!"

good times. ;)

"But I know about embroidery and kittens:  won't that suffice?  Oh, blow it:  I'm going to have a try!"

Hey there.  Last night, I learned not to feed the ducks (more information in the latest at my blog)—and I thought that, with your wide audience, you might be one to spread the word. :)

I think that video is simply hysterical. ;)

And good to know. Thanks for the info. Saved for a future posting. :) Probably in the spring/summer when people are most likely to feed them.

It's scary stuff though. Lots of my friends have had to go through really bad stuff for that kind of thing. Just horrible.

it's an interesting peice of information, I read this after talking to a good frined, who is a girl and actualy tends to stalk her exs' talk about role reversal. Here's hoping none of you folk get stalked, becauyse I seriously doubt anyone's going after a dude as scrawny and weird as me! HAHA!( in an excesisvely happy mood today)

My cousin Robert has had several problems with stakers. He also had an abusive girlfriend. He had to call the cops on her once. The cops said that men being abused in relationships is much more common then people think. The thing is men are less likely to talk about abuse. So the problem often goes unpunished.

motor cars

Why can't women parallel park?

*holds hands about 4 inches apart*
Because men tell them this is 12 inches!

... I guess that one's better IRL. >.>

Hmm. I wonder if that study includes internet stalkers, most of which are merely annoyances thanks to advancements in blocking technology. :)

I wouldn't think so. I mean they're annoying as hell, but if they're not a physical threat... I don't know!

Ha, I've seen that video before but had forgotten about it. Thanks for the laughs :)

I didn't know that that many women were stalked each year. O__O Freaky!

Oh geez, those numbers are WAY too high. Luckily, I've never been stalked. At least, I don't think I have been...

Also, fantastic video.

Isn't that video, rocking?

I like to think most people who have been stalked know it. I'd rather know, then have someone stalk me on the sly. That's freaky.

That's a secret fear of mine, being stalked, or followed. I'm extra paranoid about it. Just with how much it has been going on in the last few years, I've grown this heightened fear of it. Can't help it.

Scary honey. *hugs* I'm sorry. I hope posting about it today didn't increase any anxiety over it.

Heh...I race cars! Anyway, I have had multiple stalkers, but mostly they are annoying people I barely know. One, however, was an ex Navy Seal, and lived nearby, and was really creepy.

And yikes. Trained stalkers are the scariest kind.
