This is not uncommon. In fact, I keep hearing the same thing from different instructors across the nation: The presence of women in firearms classes has increased like never before.
I know we are being bombarded with the new narrative that women are not only victims, they demand to be victims. It does not make sense to me and apparently it does not make sense to a growing number of women who rather go contrary to the thought that bad guys can be shamed by a blog post or dragging a mattress across campus into behaving or take selfies with an “I am a feminist” sign and post them in Twitter. It also does not make sense that the same group that scream the loudest, “My Body, My Choice” decides for the whole that such choice must stop short of self-defense. It is just plain insane in any rational person’s book.
They do have a reason to excite and increase Victim Pride: Without victims, their cause (and funding) goes to hell. They need product and nothing collects more money that the story of a battered wife or a raped college student. A story of a Bad Guy assuming permanent horizontal status because he happened to bump into the armed 5 foot, 100 lbs female do not make their coffers fill with coinage. Candlelight vigils bring the checks, beers at the local pub celebrating the survival of an attack do not.
And if you live in the area, go get some classes at the Firearms Academy of Seattle. And abuse Tom all you want, his wife Diane will back you up.

These are the same idiots who claimed that anti-rape nail polish is sexist because it victim-shames rape victims and say that you shouldn’t stand up for other people because it denies them a voice.
I can see that last one backfiring. I know for sure I’m not going to be standing up for any feminists in the near future.
Our CCW training class was fully 50% female, and the oldest participant was maybe 35 years old. We even had some children attending (though they didn’t get certificates; too young for CCW licenses).
The image of “Gun Culture” as a party of old white men is invalid.
I think the ideal feminist is Annie Oakley.
