    Or maybe they do, and they just don't realize it.

    I cannot imagine any parent be willing to be submissive if their child was in danger of being raped or killed. It has nothing to do with women or men other than which part of the attackers body they went for first.

    Yeah, he wants this to be about his view that women believe their lives are more important than men's lives. It was never about that, never about gender. It's all about what would a person, any person, do to save someone they loved from being brutalized and possibly murdered.

    Some individuals seem to think the most logical course of action is to let the criminal do whatever he wishes to said loved ones, as long as what the criminal wishes to do is to someone else rather than him.

    The reality is that once an intruder has complete control of your very young children? He has control of you. If the intruder intends to do you or your children harm? If he sees you and knows you know he has your children? IMO, you're screwed. Rather like the Kobayashi Maru.

    Re: What would you expect a woman to do?

    I'd expect her to do exactly the same thing I would.

    i.e.

    Not do anything stupid that's simply going to get her killed, and take any opening that she happens to find if she has the courage to do so.

    She might not be as strong as I am, but that doesn't mean that she can't clobber a hypothetical rapist over a head with a lamp or other similarly heavy object if he becomes momentarily distracted with something else.

    It's possible that she might even have an advantage in this regard, as the rapist may not view her as being enough of a threat to warrant keeping his guard up.

    I think this dual needs to be moved somewhere else.

    As elsewhere, the only two choices given in the poll are not the only 2 possibilities, it is impossible to answer without almost an infinitely long clarification of details, and unless someone has been in similar situations they don't have a clue what they or anyone else would do.

    My wife would do what she could to stop it. I would risk my life to save my family and my wife would risk her life to save her family. She is actually probably more likely than I am to do something rash that will get everyone killed. Asian women who grew up hard don't scare easy.

    Perhaps if she grabbed a pair of scissors?
