  • You know I kind of do. I have the hero syndrome haha.

    It all started when I was a wee lad who was bullied. I was literally, put in a situation where I was forced to watch my cousin and friends get brutally beat up and told if I moved they would thro me the same beating, or worst.

    I watched and it still haunts me to this day. I wasn't held down or at knife or gun point and I let my cousin and friends get beat up from FEAR of a group of human douchebags. Just 4 douchebags, I should've bloody tried.

    But I took martial arts and now im a badass in my mind and well I would say literally, but again that's my own perspective haha. I am a black belt in xingyiquan, taekwondo and equivalent in wing chin though :).

  • I definitely feel some pressure. On average, it's pretty mild, but there are some pretty intense spikes at times too.

  • I "want" to protect people or look out for people. But most people don't want me to so I don't get many chances to do it. So it doesn't cause me stress, just frustrations.

  • I've got a very strong protective streak, especially for those I care about. I've always been that way, but I don't fight or resort to violence to solve problems. Just apply logic and go from there.

  • I need to protect my son and ex wife. I say ex because I'm a dick and always mess up a good thing. Then I have to protect my sons mom because my son loves her and no one else will protect her. I live in a constant state of worry. Anyone who has kids understands this. Yes it stresses me out insanely. Any parent and sole provider is like this. But we adapt and take it on the chin. Plus having a good women helps a ton.

  • I'm not a cop or in the military or in a relationship (almost as bad as the military) so only one I need to protect is myself.

  • Instinctfully, I feel this way, but since women are "more than equal" now, I consciously resist the urge.

      Women are weaker than men so it's still justified.

      most feminists don't deny that men are stronger than women, either

      I have had a different experience with the being offended if you hold the door open, even though I hold it for dudes too.

  • I don't have anyone to protect

  • I'm very protective over my friends, my mother and my little brother primarily. It has caused me stress but I'd rather bear that cross than stand by if anybody tries to fuck with them.

  • I never felt the need that I had to protect other people. I have my own problems and things that I am dealing with in my life. I dont like that heavy burden put on me. It can be a lot for a person.
