    The fact-dependent situation is going to dictate a lot of what exactly happens, so I don't know what kind of answer you're looking for.
    This is pretty much what I'd do too. Wait until he's distracted or something and then shoot him. Realistically, it might mean waiting until he starts raping her to do anything, which would be very difficult. But I can't do much to protect her if I'm dead.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    First off it may not be useless, she may make her escape while the would be rapist is busy killing me. Secondly as I said I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I did nothing so either way she would be without me.

    It's easy enough to theorize what you'd do...but some people have been in dicey situations in which they had to react and do know how they reacted in those situations. I do. Got the snot beaten out of me too, but I didn't think--I acted. No time to ponder. If you're instinct is to just stand there and do nothing or to run away, well, that's your instinct.

    The sensible rapist would disable the man first and then go after the woman.

    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.
    I would assess the situation and see what paths to victory I was able to take, without regard to self preservation. Needlessly sacrificing one's self is stupid, but one should also not wimp out.

    I love how all these people who have never seen any kind of armed conflict/combat are so eager to throw their lives away in a useless gesture that would only cause more pain to their loved one.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Make sure it isn't useless. When you've got one shot, make it count.


    Pretty sure that standing aside while it happens would be impossible for me anyway, Goshin-brain no workee in this manner.

    Maybe not eager to throw their lives away...maybe wired to try to do what's right.
