I was repling to another thread and the topic of rape came up. Basically, I saved this girl from being raped just because the aggressor knew i was a martial artist. Once I came in the room, he just stopped. (http://www.martialartsplanet.com/forums/showthread.php?t=37662&page=1&pp=15 Thats the whole story, the post is somewhat toward the bottom/middle of the page) If you read the story, you'll understand that i didn't know he actually planned to assault her sexually at that time. I later admited that had i known, I wouldnt have let him leave that house without a serious beating. And not only that, I'll admit now that i would've been proud to do it. The reason for the animosity is because i've had several friends (female) who are victims of rape and i saw how it affected their lives. Some of them still suffer from the memory of it when it happened six months or even a year before. Nobody deserves to have that happen to them and if its a choice between that and beating the daylights out of some guy whether i hardly know him or hes my best friend, I wouldn't think twice about fighting. Share some thoughts / comments / scoldings etc.
