    I'd kill him. If I were married, my wife would be my most prized possession.

    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?



    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?





    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?

    as a woman , if l really believe he deserves my devotion , l would do everything to protect him.

    so he must do the same thing ,l believe.

    Since I live in a nation with a police force, I don't have to do anything. I can just call 911, and sit back and wait, confident that the all-powerful State will be there to take care of us, and that the criminal in question will calmly agree to wait for them to arrive before he engages in any perfidious deeds.

    Damn...another completely messed up question.

    However, if this horrid incident came true...I would either be dead or have a bullet wound while the rapist is dead.

    I wouldn't stand there and allow my wife to be raped. If I ever get married then I understand that I would give my life to protect her and my children regardless of my own life.

    If you came after she had been raped, would you still commit suicide unable to handle having a wife who had been sexually assaulted? Or could you only commit suicide if someone else pulls the trigger?

    The "tough guys" on this forum essentially declaring "I'd kill myself if a man was going to rape my wife" is possibly the most absurd collection of messages I've seen on the forum, and that's pretty damn absurd! And it is interesting how many women think that is exactly what he should do too.

    No, that's only what you chose to go on about. You quoted what I said when you replied to me. It was INDEED about your first thought.


    And I'll say again that if that really was your "instinct," it is a highly defective one that isn't about her at all, but only your ego and is entirely against her self interests.
    That's ridiculous. Preposterous. Juvenile. It doesn't have anything to do with "ego." It has to do with a loved one being in danger. It doesn't have anything to do with being a "hero" or trying to uphold "virtues" or anything silly like that. It has to do with protecting your own from harm.

    I guess you either have that instinct or you don't. But if you don't, then there's something wrong with you.
