It keeps reminding me of the "tough on crime" stance that was so prevalent among politicians in the '90s.
In both cases, it seems to me that the goal is twofold: first, to exaggerate the actual danger levels, and thereby make people more scared than they need to be; and second, to then claim that you're the one who can keep them safe.

And those who haven't found spouses have often found people who've become longtime friends and/or SOs.

And similarly, I suspect that most people who don't think a lot about security issues aren't worried that metal detectors will fail to detect an underwear bomb; I suspect most such people don't think enough about it (and don't know enough about what makes up a bomb) to have an opinion.Same with words, of course; always hard to know how what we say will be interpreted, and writing and editing often involve a process of trying to imagine how the audience will interpret what we say.But I'm a lot more comfortable with words than with clothes, and I trust my ability to model people's interpretations of my words more than I do with clothes.
