The importance of fear in lesbian and gay experiences of danger and safety associated with violence still remains largely unexamined.  It is now perhaps a trite point, but one worth repeating within the frame of a lesbian and gay politics of violence, that fear of crime is for many more important than direct experiences of criminal acts in the generation of experiences of danger and safety.
