So after reading the replies in some threads today I am really at a loss. I have to say that I am SO disppointed. That being said, I have a question that I want an honest answer to. WHY is it ever ok to be totally defenseless? I don't just mean a gun or knife either. If those things are illegal in your state/country then other self defense tools or training are still available. Is it laziness? Belief that nothing will ever happen to you? General lack of give a shit? WHAT? I cannot undertsand how SO many strong, amazing women seem totally ok with admitting defeat and letting some scum do whatever he wants because they think self defense is futile. That makes my heart truly sad. So if you are totally against self protection and lack any ability to protect yourself at any given moment I want to know why? Not bashing here. I just want to know why.
