No, but by suggesting that males should be removed from the discussion you completely ignore any semblance of equality. Most rapists are male and most victims are female. However, many of those rapists are encouraged by their male friends, or brag to their male friends who then do nothing about it. Males are also often witnesses to attempted rape, and have an opportunity to either attempt to help the victim, or to say "It's not my problem."<quoted text>
Maybe you should worry more about real life events that you may or may not be faced with, I myself may not be the best person to be speaking on facts and figures but I think it would be a fair assumption to say that no male or female will be trying to rape you in the near future.
So yes, Virgil and any other male should not only be able, but be willing to take part in a discussion about ways to prevent abuse. Part of this abuse prevention is admitting that a lot of the time, the attacker (regardless of gender) is just too strong for the victim (regardless of gender) to fight off without some sort of equalizer. Virgil appears (correct me if I'm mistaken, because I don't want to speak for anyone) to be saying that in such situations, the victim could stop an attempted attack by shooting the victim.
And if that is an incorrect premise (that a victim could shoot a rapist) then why are women instructed on campus to carry pepper spray, with which to "shoot" her attacker? If you can pull out a tiny spray can, figure out which way to point it, and fire it off in the dark during an attack, then how is it magically not feasible to recommend that these same women carry firearms so that their scum attackers can be taken out of the gene pool permanently?
