Do Women Actually Scream In Real Life?

I scream sometimes, but it's a different kind of screaming than what you describe.  The screaming women do in the movies, or in the kind of situations you describe seems to me to be fear-motivated.  When I scream, it is usually out of rage or frustration.  I guess it's really more of a temper tantrum.  
I will use this space to put in a good word for spiders.  I'm one of the people who thinks of spiders as our friends.  Spiders that I find in the house usually get a free ride outside.  Of course, they are not black widows.  I like and admire spiders, think they are quite elegant, actually.  Maybe this was due to having Charlotte's Web read to me at an impressionable age.

I was thinking of the top-of-the-lung, non-stop hysterical screaming that I always found incredulous and wondered if real people actually did that.
Despite my change of heart re: Spiders in the house, I do not normally go out of my way to harm them, esp. Those outdoors. I think they do have a place in nature, and I steer clear of their way when I go hiking, as we do share that world. But in my house... Well, that's my world, and I don't want to share it with anything that bites me.

First let me say that I am a grown woman. And a Veteran of the US Army. I am not your typical girly girl. And I scream. Full on, make the hair on the back of your neck stand up, scream. And yeah, over spiders. Hate em. Hate em, hate em. And i do not ever (and I mean ever) watch scary movies. Gives me nightmares. And then i wake up screaming.

Please, PLEASE, PLEASE go see a doctor right away. This is very serious. Your body cannot heal the bite adequately. Go to Google Images, and type in "spider bite" and you'll know why they are NOT our friend. PLEASE DO NOT WAIT !!!

While I don't full out scream, you will not see me standing around saying hello to a spider, or any vermin!! I am a runner, in a situation, a spider on one side and a bear on the other, I would run for the bear, and from the spider!!! Now if you want to hear me scream, ask me to get on a bus!!! Yes, I did take my meds today, lmao roff. My hubby heard me in the forest too dk. Lol

Yes they can, but not always. They only put screamers in movies and tv to make it more interesting and make the guys look more macho! I have never seen any woman really scream.

Thanks. I just thought maybe it was one of those things Hollywood made up for effect. But Celtic Girl tells us otherwise.
Edit: I put down a 5-star rating for you, but someone is going around giving single-star ratings making yours a 3-star. That's one reason I wish they would just abolish the rating system altogether.
