I pretty much agree with you here.I dont know about anyone else but I would never stand by and watch a guy lay a finger on a female. Carrying or not I have a moral obligation to step in. And if another persons life is in danger I wouldnt hesitate to draw. As a human being I carry not only to protect myself, but others in life threatening situations.
I am a man of honor, but if a woman wants to beat on me first, then it's on like Donkey Kong. Of course there are exceptions.I cannot believe so many would stand by and watch a guy strike a female. NOTHING a female could do can justify a male striking a female.
