    people either get overly scared or not scared enough about such things. Overly scared they stay indoors all the time. Under scared, they think what little thyey tell themselves is enough will do something in the event some 300 pound monster jumps them. Cause we all know Rapists love to announce themselves before they attack.

    I'm quick, and likely stronger than the average woman(is it sad that I just can't say for sure? or is that good for most women?), I know if I were walking down the street and some guy jumped me from behind, I'd have a hard time fighting him off.

    I really have to stand in sheer wonder at people who detest guns and suggest keys and pepper spray as an alternative. You have weapons now. Why use innefective weapons.

    It's funny what people rely on to protect themselves.

    Staying in a group is probably the best alternative, if possible. Only problem with pepper spray/gun/keys or any other weapon is that it isn't likely one can get to it fast enough to do any good.

    Bad guys have practice hurting people while not getting hurt themselves.. citizens spend too much time looking at the tops of their shoes when they walk to effectivley counter a predator.

    I've been in the martial arts world for a long time, and I really dislike what's taught in "womens self defense classes"... too many " never fail moves " can't be pulled off when the intended victim suffers an adrenaline dump, or when the attacker is too wired to care.

    To me, most womens self defense classes are a quick fix and build a false sense of security.

    If a person isn't willing to spend a lot of time learning how to hit and be hit, they're better off focusing on situational awareness and avoidance. Actually, learning both is the best way to stay safe.

    Sliced Baloney..

    Maybe the women should do what the german women did in WW2 to prevent rape by invading troops--put some single edged razor blades in the ol' vagina--that will discourage them! :whistle: Once the word gets out what happenned to the first rapist,I dont think rape will be quite as popular... :p:

    Its a problem in boston lately too--maybe they should legalize prostitution,then guys who are that hard up to get laid wont have to become rapists... :thinking:

    Most women I see here have a pocketbook that weighs more than they do!--a few bricks in one of those would make an effective bludgeon!!.. :laugh: That would slow down any purse snatchers too.. :crazy:
