    Obviously, if the guy is a 200 lb monster who's threatened to smash your face to bits, you don't fight back.

    But we're been so conditioned to be "nice" that sometimes,  we act with a timidity that lets the potential rapist know that he's got an easy mark.

    "Oh, are you afraid of me?"  With a smirk.

    And the answer should not be "No. I'm sure you're a nice guy, but I really need to get to class. Please let me by."

    And should instead be, with a snarl that shows every tooth in your mouth. "Yes, I'm afraid of you. And like any animal, when I get afraid, I get vicious.  Now get out of my way before I decide to go for your throat!"

    Oooh, nice girls don't do things like that. We're supposed to be sweet and gentle and timid.

    Screw that.

    Assess the situation. Like any other animal being threatened. Not like a "nice" girl.  

    Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.
