There's a video out of China where a little 2 foot tall kid defended his grandma from an abusive stranger. Kid whips out a knife and was looking like he was going to go special forces ninja on the bad guy. Kid has the heart of a lion.
Ok well not all boys react that way. And we weren’t raised in a traditional home. Telling by your age 47, possibly born 1974. Those times are over, and people have changed their fixed mindsets for the better. Older sisters now protect the younger brothers because they are “younger”. I’m not babying him just because I don’t want him to go off fighting some dude for me, it’s absolutely stupid. He’s smart, but not a fighter. It’s not his job to protect me, nor is it his job to protect his girlfriend. His girlfriend should be able to handle her own problems just like everyone else. Modern times have changed, and men don’t always have to protect the girls. A lot of girls know self defense just as much as men. Some even fight like men instead of the hair pulling technique. My brother would grow up no less a man than you or any other fighter just because he doesn’t protect women.
Then why are you even asking the question if you don't want to hear opinions? Yes, the old days are over. Now you have a lot of guys who will use you as a human shield. I think every woman SHOULD learn self defense. That's a different issue from what's best for a boy.
I do respect your opinion, I just disagree with it. The whole point of me asking was to get different opinions on the situation. And I’m just saying not every boy is gonna wanna leap in front of a female and risk his safety for someone who wouldn’t do the same. That’s all I’m saying.
You're right, not every male will OR should protect random females. Where I draw the line is, if she starts trouble, whether she's a stranger or my woman, it's not my problem. And I make that clear to anyone who might be under the impression that I will clean up their mess for them. The traditional idea of a lady meant she wasn't going to start trouble or if she did, she knew it was all on her. A lot of modern women think they can start trouble (not being traditional) and demand a guy act traditional to save her. ha ha ha.
Ok, that’s true. I agree. Women do act like that more often than they should.
Well I just turned 14, and he’s currently 11 turning 12. My mom said when we get older, like in Highschool or college, he should be protecting me. But I wholeheartedly disagree because he’s not one to fight or really speak up. I’m not either, but I for sure know how to defend myself.
In all honesty your mother is absolutely right, simply because he should grow to be bigger and stronger than you, therefore striking a more imposing figure.
Thank you for the MHGirl.

Thanks Lana for like!
Keeping them from being at*
Been called simp for my views but to my understanding, a simp is an asskisser. I don't encourage asskissing whatsoever. I do encourage guys to be self-sufficient enough that they can at least protect themselves if not others as well.
A decent man as I see it can protect himself and fend for himself and provide for himself. A great man can extend that to others as well.
I’m talking about in the future, like in Highschool or college.
Oh ok. Well, since he is younger, even though he will probably be physically stronger than you because he is a man, I think you will have the edge on him in terms of maturity and in terms of handling situations optimally. I think your wisdom advantage will be more useful than his brawn so I think you will do a better job at protecting him, particularly with advice.
Thanks for the Xper point even though you reversed the decision to like my opinion,
What? I didn’t even reply.
