    Maybe.

    The advantages of height, reach, weight, and strength are just too great to overcome, generally speaking.

    Screw aikido and such... I'd carry a gun if I were Pink or Jaye.
    Let's not get this out of perspective: determined 300-pound sociopaths are far from average.

    Women don't have to be victims. Men get raped by 300-pound sociopaths as well. I'd hate to see a "what's it like to be a girl?" thread turn into a "what's it like to be raped?" thread.
    Enough negative stereotypes to deal with, if you know what I mean.

    I was always advised to take something with that they cannot use against you. Apparently there are a kind of sugar cubes which are razor sharp, but when they meet the floor they fall to pieces. The problem with a weapon is that your attacker is more likely to use it against you than you are like to use it against them.

    I used to do Jiu-Jitsu, and the good thing is you learned how to escape positions which were almost hopeless. I dunno if any of you have ever watched 'Goldeneye' but Xenia is a female there that kills with her thighs. That 'grip' she uses is actually one you can use against strangulation and rape. It can severely crack your attackers ribs and even suffocate him.

    Is it enough? I'm not sure...in the end you are more likely to go 'easy' on them as you are not the kind of person to hurt others, and that might very much work against you.

    I find that the only thing that would work for me in a tight situation is to have something handy that could potentially disable someone quickly. It's just not realistic to think that you could kick or punch a dude and that would stop him. When I'm walking to and from my car (or even just walking down the street without my car anywhere around) I hold my biggest key tightly between my index and middle finger. This is so that if need be, I could stab someone in the eye (which would be immediately effective without to much effort). I have also since then invested in a pepper spray.

    Okay, let's bring it home then. I'm 41 years old and a 220-pound out-of-shape teddy bear, and I would never harm Pink or her sister in a million years...

    But if I wasn't nice, and I didn't care how badly I hurt Pink, I could wad her up like a piece of notebook paper.

    This is the reality of men vs. women physically. It just is.

    I am not concerned with fairness, only with what works. Peer pressure works. The admonition of one righteous person can silence a mob of weak-willed philistines.

Instead, they'd politely nod and then proceed to go around the corner to ask the nearby male co-worker the same question.

    I used to get really angry about it (oh, the injustice), and then I'd go through bouts of self-loathing and gender hatred. Now I think I'm over most of that, though I do get irritated when I witness it happening. When it happens continually, in one little subtle situation after another, it can really erode your level of confidence.
    I'm guilty of having done that in the past.

    I had once injured myself and just gotten treated by my stepmother at home. I then asked her if I had to go to hospital to see a doctor.

    She's a pretty accomplished specialist doctor by the way.

    I apologise on behalf of all us silly men out there. Ok, not all of them. Just the ones that are as cool as I am. And respectful of ladies.

    Are you free this Sunday evening?

    Get Guinsoo's Scythe of the Vyce. It's only 2700 for the staff and another 1750 for the perserverence. I'll spot you the ulti orb, and the recipe is free.
    You hex that mother into a lobster for 3.5 seconds. If that doesn't get you around the alley corner, I don't know what will.

    It's just not realistic to think that you could kick or punch a dude and that would stop him.
    Obviously.
    Tear his ear off.

    Not joking. I guarantee, that will disable anyone. If you can't reach that squeeze a finger and bend it the fuck back.

    Those minor extremities are the real soft spots. Forget a groin kick. They know to defend against that.

    When I'm walking to and from my car (or even just walking down the street without my car anywhere around) I hold my biggest key tightly between my index and middle finger.

    I approve of your ingenuity.
