    Maybe. Maybe not. Depends on the exact circumstances, and the individuals involved.


    Certainly there are times where discretion is the better part of valor... but it depends on what is on the line. I don't figure there is anything "mere" about rape... it is a degradation second to none.

    Sure, there are situations where the most likely outcome is "you're dead". But the only true no-win-scenario is the no-try scenario.

    I am going to have to go with "it depends". I would risk my own life in a heart beat to stop my wife, or any woman for that matter, from being raped. That doesn't mean I would want to risk HER life. I am not going to take any action that will likely get her killed. If I can risk my own life without putting her own life at any more risk than it already is in that situation, yeah, I would do it.

    The above situation, if I had access to a gun, I would shoot him without question. If he had one and I did not I would wait for opportunity, either way I don't think he would leave the area alive, but who can say for sure.
    Yeah, but things change when your loved ones are around. I have also been held up twice. Once in DC where I fought back and ended up chasing the guy away. I was alone. The other time was in Cambodia. The guy had a knife and I am confident I could have taken him. But my wife and young son were with me. I gave him my wallet.

    Sure. Everything is situation-dependent, and milage always varies. If you figure you can let the guy take your wallet and he'll go, and you have loved one's in harm's way, it's worth a try.

    Just have a plan B in case the wallet doesn't suffice...

Women rarely die from being raped and their attackers very rarely kill them after the rape. Best course of action is, if you can, get the best description of the rapist and report it to the police. By saying that you would die to prevent a rape you are basically telling women that their vagina is worth more than your life. I think that is a horrible thing to say and is down right sexist and mysandric. I cant stand women who applaud men who are nearly tripping over themselves to die for their vagina. I think its sick!! But it is rampant in our society. Women are constantly being put on a pedestal by these idiot mangina's and that is why you can pretty much go to any club and find some dumb woman slapping the crap out of a guy... and a guy gets tired of it and puts her on her ass, and everyone wants to beat the guys ass for "punching a girl".

    Best course of action when a gun is involved is to call the police and give them a description of the rapist.... Let them handle it. Your life is worth more than some chicks vagina.
    Yes, because women are only vaginas, not people. And rape is only about damage to a vagina, not the beating women usually take while being raped. Or like that woman in India who was penetrated with objects that tore her internal organs, beaten and dumped off a bus. No, no, no! It's only rape, not life threatening. So we should just shut up about it already.

    One of the worst misogynist rants I've ever read here.

    ... and he wonders why we have trouble taking him seriously when he pontificates on the subject of self-defense... well, this would be a prime example...

    I'd tell him to have a jolly good time, didn't like the old hag that much anyway, wait til he mounts and then break his neck.

    "Self" and only self being of the greatest concern, Goshin. It is a prime example of a lot of other things too.

    As I've said in a few threads over the years, I've been attacked by a person with a weapon in the past. Got cut, still have a scar but I did not back down and that was my own personal safety on the line, if it's a loved one they are ahead of myself in order of importance so if I didn't run on my own behalf I'm definitely not running when my loved ones are under duress.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I dont, if I did I would be like half the idiots here that would step in front of a bullet. The real question is when women will stop expecting us to treat them like just a vagina.
    - 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.
