I understand what you're trying to say, but I really don't see that as a women's right's issue. That's a universal issue. The weak arming themselves against the strong is not gender specific. It never was.Oh. By no means am I suggesting it is something that you should only rely upon. But to me it is that idea that the weak (physically) will have the ability to fight against the strong. I actually have a better example.
Take stand your ground law. If it is taken away in my state...you as a woman now have a duty to retreat. Is that ethically good? Yes. Morally? Sure. But what about when practically applied? Are you physically able to retreat? Is it a guarantee? Probably less so than if you are a young male in his 20s. This is something to consider when the topic comes up. And not all women are in agreement on most issues, including this one. I was just curious how you felt.

I suppose it could be used as a talking point by NRA types. As a matter of fact I'm pretty sure I've seen some of their TV ads about this very thing. Some woman goes on and on about not allowing herself to be a victim ever again or some such...I'm not sure those ads are all that effective other than to cater to their loyal supporters.
