If you are picturing a 7 foot tall mass of muscles armed with a shotgun, you might be setting yourself up for a colossal failure. Please watch the whole video:
It is not the size of the dog in a fight but the size of the fight in the dog. This video also tell us that there is no moral boundaries that hold down a predator but only what they want to do and makes them feel good.
“But she is just a petite woman and I am a big man. I can kick her ass five ways from Sunday!” Well, first I know this blog is read by women, so the video will be illustrative, but I want to point out that if instead of pure fists, that Petite Predator were to attack you Mr. Big & Tall with a knife, she would probably get some 10 stab wounds before you realize you were dealing with something else than Tinkerbell.
You cannot predict what your attacker will look like, nor afford to ignore the potential for danger just because they can be initially perceived as less dangerous because of their size.
I know that in this era of political correctness and having to watch what you say and write, the following quote is not the best, but it does reflect a position we must take:
Approach everyone with smile in your face and murder in your heart.
