man or bear

"would you prefer to be stuck in the woods alone with a random man or a bear?"
have you all heard this dumb popular question now asked to women?

i will ask it regardless, with the purpose to make fun of your answer if you actually would pick a bear haha

seriously though, this question is now asked to try and pretend like most men would harm a women if both are alone and the bear would be the more harmless option. Thats where we are now with this sexist nonsense towards men.

Ain't no way I am choosing the bear. I have very little chance of surviving the bear attack. I think most guys are gonna be willing to help me, and if they do try something they would still be easier to take down than a bear.

@Fungirlmmm great answer

Can I just choose Wilson the Volleyball? 🏐🤔
Torsten · 36-40, M
@OlderSometimesWiser you're stuck in the woods in this hypothetical question not a small island in the middle of the ocean, so no. Wilson the Volleyball is not a option here sadly
most people who pick bears havent actually seen what a hungry bear is capable of. not saying that alot of men arent evil, they are....... but, you got a better chance of fighting one off.

@YourMomsSecretCrush Yeah they don't really specify the circumstances...I mean if it was just a regular brown bear that was well fed and he was just walking around..maybe the bear? But a starving bear or a mother bear and her cubs??? You are dead most likely 100% of the time so at least take your chances with the other guy
Torsten · 36-40, M
@MrBlueGuy anytime you are around a bear even if its well fed, if you startle it, good chance it will retaliate. There is really no safe option here when it comes to being around a bear in its natural habitat, and as you mentioned, if it has cubs and its a mother bear, your chance of survival is near non existent.
But hey, men are so bad, so bear it is haha
Ask men who would they leave their baby daughter with in the woods, you'd get the same answer lmao

Instead of trying to prove which is worse, become the man that women wanna stay with in the woods

While I understand your point, and I don’t have a tonne of knowledge about bears, I believe the question has come about because there are ways to actually scare a bear off. I’ve seen videos in America of things like this.

So assuming these things work, a woman might be better off with the bear after all. No one can deny that there are too many predatory dangerous men about.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@DHggmu there are ways to scare men off also. Its a question basically set to show women have a unrealistic assumption that most men are out to hurt them and a bear would be less likely to do harm.
Figures you would get all butthurt over this.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@LeopoldBloom no its not relevant at all. You came in here just looking for a argument and attention

Reading your replies you are wildly overstating the dangers of bears (I grew up and live in a rural area full of 'em) and wildly understating the dangers of men.
GlassPajamas · 31-35, F
Bear, pls. While both are dangerous, a bear is highly unlikely to rape me or keep me around to torture me.

@GlassPajamas oh good one. Nothing like a gif when you have nothing to come back with

Don't think that it's about you. It's another guy.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Matt85 never said it was about me. If i did i would have worded the question in a way obvious to that
Lostpoet · M
At least with a bear you know that you can't get raped.

@Lostpoet What if it was a time travelling bear trained by the Romans to have sex with humans? (Yes that's a thing they did with animals).
Lostpoet · M
@GeniUs I can kill the bear and eat it so I guess i'll still pick bear.
Carissimi · F
I can’t outrun a bear. In fact, that’s the worst thing to do, and I probably could not outrun a man (unless he was so out of shape), but I’d have a better chance with the man, if he was a bad man.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Carissimi i have suffered sexual assault as a child and i dont assume every male is out to harm me due to it and i suffered a lot worse from a few women and guess what? i dont think every woman is out to harm me due to it or when i see a woman, i dont automatically think danger.
This whole "unless you are a woman" cop out, aint really working.

If you look at any man and automatically think danger, well thats on you, but i will just tell you now. Most men are not out to get you
Carissimi · F
@Torsten Look. You don’t get it. Let’s leave it there.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Carissimi im just not really understanding where you're coming from. I know women say that all the time with things like this, but no one can really explain it and it have logic to it.
CrazyMusicLover · 31-35
I've seen it and still don't know what does being stuck in the woods mean. The last time I checked, a forest has uncountable entrances and exits.
Is it a night and I'm in a tent while there's a random man or a random bear outside?
Am I in a cave and can't leave it because there's a man or a bear blocking the entrance?
Am I on a tree? Both men and bears can climb trees.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@CrazyMusicLover i asked the question, so yeah i get to say what is irrelevant in it or not. Dont like that, well ask your own question.

Take the woods out of it since you're so obsessed with that part and replace it with being in a room
CrazyMusicLover · 31-35
@Torsten Being stuck in the room makes much more sense and also a clear answer, as bears would most certainly get scared and aggressive in a confined space. So I'd definitely rather be stuck in a room with a man than a bear.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@CrazyMusicLover okay glad there is finally a conclusion to this lol
Well im an aussie so itd be a koala bear 😂
Fekkers sleep 22 hours a day and eat the rest.
@hiddenpearl still pretty big. Do you have sun bears ? They are supposed to be pretty shy
@OogieBoogie im shy too
Torsten · 36-40, M
@OogieBoogie i hear drop bears are a menace there though
wildbill83 · 36-40, M
bear; I can shoot it and eat if If I'm hungry enough (normally, bear meat is too greasy for my taste), and it's hide would make for a good coat...

the dude wouldn't serve much purpose unless you're Haitian and your name is buffalo bob... 🤔
Torsten · 36-40, M
@wildbill83 hope you're a good shot and dont just piss that bear off haha.
I have never tried bear meat before. So its greasy? does it have a good taste to it at least?
wildbill83 · 36-40, M
@Torsten its like a cross between venison and pork, more fatty/greasy, and more "gamey" taste. It's okay if slow cooked, but not really worth the effort imo.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@wildbill83 interesting. I have only ever heard of people using bear meat in slow cooked stews
JPWhoo · 36-40, MVIP
I get your point, you’re right, but I don’t react to it the same way you do. Personally, I generally like women, so instead of laughing at them and saying or thinking they’re stupid, I’m sad that so many men are indecent that a significant number of women would choose the bear.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@JPWhoo never said i am laughing at women. I said i will laugh at anyone who actually would pick the bear..
The women who choose the bear, would never actually choose that if they really did have to make a choice and the outcome was real
Collegegirl23 · 26-30, F
I have phobia of bears, so I would say a man, I mean I could try defend myself against a man but I beat I have no chance!
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Collegegirl23 yeah much more of a chance to fight off a man compared to a bear.. but for the sake of the question, you most likely would have been in no danger when the choice of the man was there because most men are not out to hurt women

@Collegegirl23 you think the majority of men dont rape women only cause there are others around?

WillieT · 61-69, M
I'm not a female, but if it was someone like those protesters we've been hearing about vs. a bear...Oh wait, you did say 'man'.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@WillieT what protesters?
GLITTER · 36-40, F
Man fighting a bear.

Then it kills two birds with one stone and I can run to safety
Torsten · 36-40, M
@GLITTER there is no man in this scenario if you pick the bear and vice versa
GLITTER · 36-40, F
@Torsten in which case, bear and this https://www.reddit.com/r/nextfuckinglevel/s/WrXpr7sGQs
Thevy29 · 41-45, M
Depends on the bear. Cause a Koala would barely notice your presence.
yea us pandas would hide from u @Torsten
WildBill25 · 26-30, M
Lol! My friend at work asked me that today!
Torsten · 36-40, M
@WildBill25 its a weirdly popular question being asked lately

@Torsten 💁🏻‍♀️
Melissa501 · 36-40, F
Gimme the man
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Melissa501 smart
I chose the bear regardless - nothing to do with sexism and everything to do with rather being alone with a non-human. 😶
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Nihiless being alone with a possibility of being ripped to shreds and eaten alive. Sounds fun
@Torsten Indeed better than human BS.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Nihiless haha okay
Patriot96 · 56-60, C
With the bear, you only need to run faster than the man
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Patriot96 never implied it was a man out to hurt anyone, so there would be no need to even outrun him at all. It would be smart to actually stick together
Both, I could feed the other dude to the bear while I make my escape
LemonWorld · 36-40, F
I'd pick the bear
Torsten · 36-40, M
i love no man less but nature more.

@CrystalSkull yeah pretty much. Very dumb question indeed that is seemingly being taken seriously
@CrystalSkull I mean yeah it's true statistically. But like..more people get killed by bee stings than sharks but that's mostly because we aren't where sharks live most of the time
Torsten · 36-40, M
@MrBlueGuy thats exactly correct

Torsten · 36-40, M
@looping the more logical reality would be you would startle that bear and it would completely mess you up.. instead though you could have said a random man and would have the very realistic reality that you would have a companion to help you and both of you get out of that situation alive
looping · 18-21
@Torsten what can i say? i'm not really a people person.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@looping i get that, neither am i. But honestly would you rather deal with a man or a bear? In this hypothetical question, you have a much higher percentage to come out of that scenario safer when you are with the man, compared to the bear.
I get hating people, but i guess do you hate people that much where being ripped apart by a bear sounds better to you?

@Jexie happens all the time. Women report rape 10 or so years after they said it happened and there has been no evidence. Rape claims are always treated seriously though and women are always treated favorably in law over men.

I can speak on actual personal experience myself with this from when i was in high school and my ex accused me to police that i raped her, despite at the time i was a virgin and most i ever did with a girl was kiss, but it was taken very seriously and it was only dropped when her friend was interviewed by police and she admitted that her friend was lying about it. My ex that same day admitted to that when told about her friend and no she suffered no repercussions over it. I did though cause a lot of people at my school still went on believing i did that shit..
but hey, conspiracies
Jexie · 26-30, F
@Torsten Well, I'm sorry that happened to you.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Jexie no need to be sorry. Im not saying it to get sympathy or anything. All i am saying is people lie.
that isnt to say a lot of women do not get sexually assaulted, cause im sure a lot do. My issue though is those statistics because they dont take into account false rape claims and just womens word for it.
My other issue is painting most men out to be rapists.
