So, a friend I like a lot and generally respect goes and says this:

The video is of a man attacking a woman in an elevator and she beats his ass into pulp. I don't want to start a fight, but ugh. I get it, he has a black belt and thinks chicks who also do martial arts are rad. But nobody chooses to be a victim.

Why is it my responsibility to learn martial arts or carry a weapon? Why can't people just not attack each other? If I'm attacked and can't defend myself, it's not my fault for being attacked.

Bummer.
