While I agree that men are generally stronger than women, a women can train in Martial Arts etc to compensate. I have seen relatively small women bring a larger man down using simple pressure points. I know what you're saying though. Actually I would want to have men around IF I knew I could trust them. However, as you can see in most of the posts by men (NOT all), there are men who are hostile towards women, so I would fear most men. Like i said, I think I would form a "Community"....and everyone, including myself, would have to pull their weight and be totally trustworthy or they are OUT. In this time and place, I am very compassionate and give second and sometimes third chances....but people would be forced to change in that kind of scenario. They would HAVE to. Compassion would be seen as weakness....so second chances could not be given. Man, I hope it never comes to this....

How many women here are without a man in a SHTF? I mean you have no husband, dad, grandpa, uncle, or guy friend that will be there for you ...if times get tough?
I ask because the way this world is headed, it could be a bumpy road ahead....I know that some of you ladies don't need or want a man...thats fine, but do you have a group or support network to help you when the chips are down?
I ask this because there seems to be a lot of guys out there that seem to be jerks and for your safety I would hope that you have someone that you can count on....
I just read lights out today and it got me thinking about women going to get items needed from the store or even if you have to go out into a unsecure area in a SHTF and what extra precautions you might need to take if your at it alone.
How many here have thought about these things or are wishing that they had a male to be that protection or rock in which you can stand in times of trouble?

I agree with you, that's what I would try to do. Find a group of people, it would also be handy because there would be skills in a group of people.
anyway, just watch out for stealthy, I plan to stay clear in a SHTF moment. You just might live that bit longer
