I'm a huge proponent of women learning the art of self defense. Call me a throwback to a generation that really never existed, but I sincerely believe females are at a disadvantage when it comes to attacks from men and with some training the odds can be evened out.
I'm not asking all women to be black belts in a certain martial arts discipline, but that they at least understand the concepts and applications when defending themselves and their loved ones. Some women as well as men scoff at my philosophy for reasons they can't really explain well, but anyone who disagrees with my wisdom is an idiot anyways.
Recently a fourteen year old girl fought off two potential kidnappers by stabbing one in the arm with a pencil. I raise a toast to the teenager for having the sound mind and will to do such an act. Not only did this girl defend herself, but she may have given such an impression to the fucktards to never do it again hopefully.
My point is you're not only defending yourself, but other women as well when you refuse to lay down and be taken by such violence.
My only wish is that the attackers would've taken the writing utensil to the genitals.
