    What would you expect a woman to do?

    If someone broke into her house and held her at gunpoint tell her he/she is going to rape her husband or her kids?
    - 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'd expect her to strap on an "implement" and anally abuse you until someone qualified came to your assistance.

    no, that would be mean and violent. In fact, probably the only reason the criminal is in the house is because wicked people like this woman keep dangerous instruments.

    The proper response for this woman is to inform the intruder that this is a No Violence Zone.

    Being that in this situation, the rapist will almost surely have a size and strength advantage over the woman, I'm really not too impressed with the question, if you're trying to make a comparison to the other thread currently running.

    That being said, if I had my gun within reach, I'd do my damndest to shoot the SOB, and if that was not an option, every ounce of energy and thought would go into trying to kill him, outsmart him, and prevent him from touching my loved ones. If he's planning to rape my children, he will not be able to hold me at gunpoint at the same time.

    Re: What would you expect a woman to do?

    This thread doesn't do justice to the many who have faced traumatic experiences and survived. In life or death (rape included) situations we don't judge the survivors for their actions. We judge the perpetrator. If the man or woman fights to the death kicking and screaming or submits. That's her choice, we don't get to judge.

    Lol- it's been so long since I've worn earrings, that I had forgotten that little ritual.
