Subconscious Issue Shooting a Woman?
(hope this is the right forum)
If you had a home like mine, many of you were taught that the weakest thing that a man could possibly do would be to hit or instigate violence against a woman.
I imagine -- whether there were an actually ethical problem or not -- that this could create a subconscious hesitance in pulling the trigger.
In myself, I already wonder if, when faced with the actual prospect of ending a human life, I would do so if necessary... I like to think I would, but until I'm faced with the situation, I can never be sure.
And introduce that subconscious reluctance -- my mother screaming into my mind, if you will... what happens? Even a moment's pause could be fatal...
If a woman were posing an imminent threat of bodily harm to your or innocents around you, what would you do? What should you do?
Yes my parents taught me to never hit a woman but...
When a BG enters the house and you confront them if you take the time to worry about and figure out the sex of the offender you will likely not have to worry about it because you will be dead.
All PERP's look the same with no discrimination based upon color, race, age or sex, they are all dangerous, deadly and will be treated as such. Don't over think the situation just save yourself and your family's life first, you can wrestle with your conscience after the smoke clears and after the police and coroner have left.
In Vietnam they used little children and women to kill unsuspecting GI's after all who would suspect a 4 year old or a young girl of carrying a live grenade with the pin pulled, and yet it happened there and similar stuff happens all over the world today even in the good old USA just sans grenade. There is a post elsewhere here titled "Be prepared to kill every one you meet" just about says it all.
