    Would you risk a bullet to spare them from violent rape, or not?



    Like I said earlier, I did it for strangers when I was a cop, willingly... I could hardly do less for my moved-loved-one.
    That is a cops job, just as it is a soldiers job to kill the enemy. If it were someone I loved, I would hope they would rather deal with being raped and both of us live thru it, then me dieing trying to protect them.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    You have an odd, and thankfully rare, definition as to how "men" should act. Very few individuals would actually define a man's role as handing over his wife... or child, I suppose... to be brutalized in order to save his own life. So, you presume that if vaginas... excuse me, female humans... want to be treated like an equal to your definition of a man, you would expect her to hand you over to be raped, gang-raped and potentially killed if it gave her a better chance of not being hurt. Dude. That's messed up.



    And I am willing to bet my paycheck that if we were to reverse roles, most women would not hesitate to take a bullet trying to save her husband from being brutalized... and those cowardly few who stood there wringing their hands, weeping "do what you want to him, just don't hurt me" would be treated with the same contempt as the cowardly male doing the same.

    Wow....this guy would be the guy that would do nothing when someone walked in and killed/raped his mother in front of him....

    You sir, do not deserve the pair of testicles with which you were blessed with.

    It's a lot more than just a job. The "princely salary" hardly covers running straight into probable gunfire for the sake of a woman you'd never seen 5 seconds before... which I've done. It's a calling, a willingness to put yourself in harm's way to protect the innocent.

    But it is even more than that... it wasn't too long ago that it was considered a duty every man should fulfill towards his loved ones, especially those less able to defend themselves.

    You'd seriously let a man rape your little daughter rather than risk a bullet to try to save her? Or your mother?


    I can't even talk to you about this anymore. I am too disgusted. I don't want to hear anything you have to say on the topics of crime, self-protection, or anything of the kind anymore, you have lost all credibility with this utterly self-centered misogynistic crap.

    The guy got his. One of her other male friends had a nice baseball bat party on the guy, broke him up bad.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Because that is exactly how he is treating her if he believes her life is more valuable than his. Then what makes a woman's life more valuable then, that we would expect a man to jump in an get himself killed trying to save a woman from rape?

    You have an odd, and thankfully rare, definition as to how "men" should act. Very few individuals would actually define a man's role as handing over his wife... or child, I suppose... to be brutalized in order to save his own life.
    And here is that entitlement mentality again... Expecting a man to get himself killed to protect her.. Because if he does not, he is handing his wife over to the rapist. Perfect example of a woman who is completely blind to her own hypocrisy as most women are in the states. I assume you would not think a woman was handing over her husband or her kids to a rapist if the rapist was holding her at gunpoint while raping them. Does this only work one way? Are you going to just come out and admit it or am i going to have to argue your hypocrisy out of you?

    So, you presume that if vaginas... excuse me, female humans... want to be treated like an equal to your definition of a man, you would expect her to hand you over to be raped, gang-raped and potentially killed if it gave her a better chance of not being hurt. Dude. That's messed up.
    Do you expect a woman to attack a gunmen raping her husband or her children. And would you call a woman who does not, a coward?



    And I am willing to bet my paycheck that if we were to reverse roles, most women would not hesitate to take a bullet trying to save her husband from being brutalized... and those cowardly few who stood there wringing their hands, weeping "do what you want to him, just don't hurt me" would be treated with the same contempt as the cowardly male doing the same.
    If you honestly hold this view equally between the sexes, then that's wonderful. But I am willing to bet my paycheck that the vast majority of the American public / American Women would not agree with you. If the majority of women still think men should pay for a date, you think they think women should step in and take a bullet to save her husband?

    HELL YEAH!!! I would've shoved the bat up his a** too, just to give him a taste of his own medicine!
