comment What material should be covered in a rape-defense course?
@Sardathrion Concur: in this case, allow it unless it degenerates into something unpleasant. The topic is important and an interesting use case.

comment What material should be covered in a rape-defense course?
yes, that is more on topic. I'm not convinced that either one must know what one is protecting against prior to devising a defense, nor am I convinced that rape defense is within scope; nor am I convinced that it is outside of scope, nor am I convinced that I can articulate where the scope boundary ought to lie. Having expressed my indecision I shall shut up until I can contribute something other than misgivings. (My qualms aside, the information is both prudent and wise).

I'm not sure that this answer is on topic for martial arts: Stack Exchange. I don't disagree with the facts presented, but I'm not sure it is appropriate for this forum.
