Many men are "afraid" (not really, but closest word I could think up at the time) of interacting with women they are close with (girlfriends, wives, etc) in some ways due to the belief that women are supposedly prone to deliberately baiting men into starting arguments by techniques such as asking loaded questions. It makes many men reluctant to deal with women some of the time due to either fear or unwillingness to put up with the stress caused by the situation. Most men, from what I can tell, tend to come off as being somewhat passive when dealing with their girlfriends in these scenarios because they would rather walk away than take the obvious argument bait.
Men - In your experience, how often do the women in your lives do this?
Ladies - Do you do this? If so, how frequently? And why?

Seen it, lived it.
I don't think its so much that we think women are going to use loaded questions or whatever. Its that some women just fly off the handle all the time.
Some men do as well.
In either case, their partners end up tip toeing around them.1
