Y’all know how much I love to talk about the Hall Of Mirrors. The Pisces, Neptune saint / sinner phenomena is related and just as interesting.
Yesterday I did the video about how I would defend myself and my family using violence. Typically this kind of aggressiveness is frowned upon, particularly if you’re a woman. I wrote about this in the comments.
When I took that self defense class, stories were told of women who fended off rapists in real life. Maybe they talked their way out or in one case there was a local woman who used one of the techniques taught in the class. She got the guy off her when he was already on top her, raping her and you might note that this meant she was clearly acting in self defense.
Now those women were held up as heroes but what about the woman (me) who sees the man in her bedroom, knows he intends to harm her and shoots him in the head before he can act? I guess she’s a cold-hearted bitch. I guess she is hard core, she’s probably crazy and this makes no sense.
In order to be seen as a good woman, I guess you have to make sure the guy injures you before you can fight and with rules like that, no wonder women (in general) are so pissed off! Here’s a little tidbit from the soldier:
He says that in the end, ALL people fight. He assures me that everyone fights for their life eventually. The thing is by the time they decide to fight it’s typically too late. Fight for your life after he’s got you tied up? Good luck with that.
Once you have facts like this it becomes very clear what course of action makes sense, at least it does to me. You fight when you have the best chance of winning as opposed to when you have no choice at all but here’s the saint / sinner piece:
I also wrote about being the person on the block who would take out the rapist. If this is the case, then lets hope that the rapist comes to my house otherwise someone (innocent) is going to get hurt. So lets say this is exactly what happens. A rapist breaks into my house and I shoot him dead in bedroom doorway. Does that make me a “saint”? Or “sinner”.
I think it makes me saint. Because I took this action, others are spared plus I have to deal with and contain the aftermath which would be extensive from the clean-up… on down. But would others see it that way?
Probably not. Probably see me in all kinds of shadow. I’d be the house on the block where the bad thing happened and why is that?
It’s because I’d have just done something they would not have done and because of that, they’ve got to make it wrong. No one is going to say this: “Hey, Elsa. Thanks for killing that bastard,” although they should.
I know this because I live with the soldier and no one ever says, “Hey soldier! Thanks for killing that bastard,” although they should.
This is how I see this, what about you?
