    It's interesting that although the choice was given in the OP, everyone assumed the burglar's male.

    Interesting huh?

    Well, it seems many have simply dodged the question entirely. In the other thread, the male was expected to be willing to give his life to save the female or significant other. Any man not willing to do so was chastised as being a coward. And in the last thread, men were actually being applauded by female posters for laying their life down for the sake of a female.

    Where as in this thread, I have yet to see anyone say that a woman not willing to put herself in the same place is not branded a coward or a lesser female.

    There is an underlying misandric view in America that is protected by both men and women. It is so deeply woven into our social fabric that many don't see it, or just simply feel it is not really that important an issue.

    If any other demographic had similar statistical signs as men do such as:

    Comprises of over 90% of the workplace deaths.
    Dies 6 years earlier
    Commits suicide 6 times more likely (and shockingly 1000 times more likely past the age of 70)
    Is the vast majority of those effected by violent crime
    Is the only demographic forced to sign up for being sent off and killed in a foreign country
    Make up 40% of the high school graduates
    Make up nearly 40% of the college graduates
    Control 70+ % of the spending
    gets 1000 times less funding for cancer research

    If any of the above indicators were of a minority group, we would know about it and there would be a call for equality or protests in the street.

    If any of the above indicators were of women, we would know about it and there would be a call for equality or protests in the street.

    If these indicators were of men, no one cares and no one would know about it.
    - 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.

    I can only speak for myself, but in that situation I'd probably do something drastic that would probably get me killed, but it would give my wife and kids a chance to escape.

    Re: What would you expect a woman to do?

    What I think a typical woman would likely do?

    -If its the kids' safety, do any and everything to protect them even if it costs her her life.
    -If the husband is under armed threat of sexual assault, endure the emotional trauma and call the police afterwards. If a man was the perpetrator, be loving and supportive as they go through the healing process together. If a woman was the perpetrator, be ticked off at the husband and partially blame him even if only internally.

    What do I think she should do? There's no cookie-cutter answer. It all depends of the circumstances. The mom/wife's personality; toughness; access to weapons of opportunity like kitchen knives, heavy objects like a brick or cast iron skillet, keys to gouge eyes and I hear wasp spray in the eyes will stop someone dead in their tracks better than pepper spray.
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011

    It's the process and the ritual, not the naked ears. Don't you know that sex is sacred?

    Re: What would you expect a woman to do?

    Right, somebody needs to explain to SMTA what a woman taking her earrings off is all about. It has nothing to do with earrings, or naked ears. It has to do with somebody about to turn into the Tazmanian Devil on your ass.
