She appears to be teaching eqaulity. Perhaps a good example can be derived from the movie, "The Last Samurai"..
You remember the end, where the 1000 or so Samurai, carrying swords, skill, and courage, are gunned down by a few mini-guns and a scared soliders twisting a lever?
Was that WRONG? Tell me... SOMETHING WAS wrong with that....

So if 2 theives break into my house with baseball bats; I should ask them to wait, go get another person, arm ourselves with baseball bats, and then have a Jackass style baseball bat duel in my living room?
If someone breaks into your home you use as much force as you think you need to defend yourself. In my case it will be a .45 M1911A1. If they have a baseball bat, well good! It means i can stand to miss a shot or 2 due to my overwhelming terror at having a deranged lunatic break into my house.
If you truly think that "most" people who break into occupied homes are doing it because they are in a precarious situation, you are deluding yourself.
Also, by your pov, if some guy beats you in a baseball bat duel in your living room, does that mean he has actually proven his right to be breaking into your home? Raping your children, your wife, your dog? Stealing your hard earned possessions? You settled it like men afterall. Right?
