Men who are physically assaulted can be seriously injured or even killed. As the risk overall of being assaulted is the same, why are you specifically saying that it's far riskier for women than for men to look at their phones instead of continuously looking around at their surroundings?
My original statement was in a thread about sexual assault, which does not have equal stats for gender. Somehow we drifted into talking about assault in general. If a person wants to reduce their risk of assault, one way is to be more aware of their surroundings. That can be anywhere from a parking lot, bar, restaurant, whatever.
