Let's say I took a steak knife to one of those guys who wouldn't take "no" for an answer on a date. Let's say I shot the guy who raped me, or the professor who sexually harassed me. How about if I bludgeoned to death that jerk outside of Planned Parenthood who got in my face and demanded to know why I was escorting women from the parking lot to the door (or what if the woman shot him for shoving his head into her car when she rolled down her window mistakenly believing that he was there to collect a fee for parking when he flagged her down)? What if I went to the office of every politician who thinks that he can force a doctor to rape me with a transvaginal ultrasound, or deny my insurance coverage for contraception, or otherwise indicate that his "morals" are more important than my uterus, and let them know just how much I feel threatened with bodily harm by their heinous actions -- and use violence to do so?
Let's say any of those scenarios were true? Do you think that I could get away with it by claiming that I "Stood My Ground"?
What utter, tragic non-sense!
That poor young man. His poor family.
