I know one woman who loves to put all kinds of "girly" things on her Volkswagen, you'ld swear some real girly girl owns this car. If you saw her get out of her car, it would take you at least 2 minutes to make sure it's a woman and that she isn't a linesman in then NFL. LOL . She's also one tough Probation / Parole officer.
Laugh all you like and take the advice anyway you like. In a previous career I had many conversations with rapists and one convicted serial rapist, said he would drive around neighborhoods looking for a car at a house that looked like a woman would own it. Then he would knock on the door and pretend to sell a product. If he found a man was in the house he would make a quick sales pitch then leave.
He said he wanted to have the highest probability of knocking on doors with a woman being home without a male present.
Some people on here carry several guns on them and a knife etc and you call me paranoid
