Men of Reddit, what do you think is the hardest part about being a woman?(r/AskReddit)
I’ve known women who are rather cocky because they’re relatively strong, and they think they can take most men. I fear that this confidence will have a bad result.
I remember reading in a book by an ex-FBI elite unit guy (kinda like special forces, but for FBI) about how they trained FBI agents, and even though they teach both genders hand-to-hand techniques, in the end the advice to women:
Even smaller men have a tremendous upper body strength advantage. Do not engage in a hand-to-hand with a man. Draw your gun and point it at his testicles.
edit: I found the book: www.amazon.com/Cold-Zero-Inside-Hostage-Rescue/dp/… Yes, I know that armed forces shoot for center mass. But this was about female agents intimidating a man into submission by pointing a gun at his balls if he threatens force (it’s been many years since I read it, so that’s my best recollection). Elsewhere in the book, they discuss how they never do trick shots (like shooting a gun out of someone’s hand) — they always aim for center mass. If memory serves, the author was just relating what he overheard from one of the male trainers advising female agents.
