I guess my thought is "I suppose the naked screaming lady could be in cahoots with a criminal who wants to get me too....but how likely is that?" I know it could and very occasionally does happen that a woman helps a man find his rape victims, but I don't think it's terribly common. Not common enough to really worry about, you know? I mean, if a criminal were that desperate to get in to my house, they could just break a window.

I really don't think i know what i would do until it actually happened. I want to think i would let her in, but its really hard for me to say without experiencing it. I really could see it going both ways.

I never consider a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosopy, as a cause for withdrawing from a friend. --Thomas Jefferson
Sitting here thinking about it I keep thinking of all the perfect responses to this. But in reality if it actually occurs I know I would run on adrenaline and do whatever felt right.
A couple of weeks ago I was coming home from a jog and there was a man that was acting really strange in front of my next door neighbors. I asked if he needed help and he took off and jumped the fence into their backyard. I followed him. I didnt mean to confront him or anything, but I wanted to make sure he didnt try to go into their house as they are a very old little couple. In retrospect I should have stayed on the sidewalk and call the cops, but I acted on instinct. He ended up being someone that was trying to hide from the cops and was going to hide out in the shed in my neighbors yard. He was looking for unlocked gates. I am very happy that all our gates are locked, even though we lock them to keep Carson in and didnt think about keeping people out

I hope I would do the right thing. I like to think I would. I just can't say 100%. I seem to have good instincts in a crisis -- I once caught my husband when he fainted, making sure to wedge my body between his falling head and the floor because I know people who faint often injure themselves in the fall -- but I don't know, when my kids are around I might get irrationally overprotective.
