Youre a mom on an evening walk with your 6-year-old son and you are suddenly approached aggressively by a man who exposes himself and then suggests that you stand there and watch whats next, so what do you do?
In Longview, a Clark County community near Vancouver along the I-5 corridor, you reach into your pocket, pull out your Ruger .380 ACP semiautomatic, and tell the fellow rather bluntly, You need to leave or Ill shoot you. Im going to blow your brains out.
The fellow left, with the womans Norwegian Behund Hound hot on his heels. According to the Longview Daily News, the unidentified woman hadnt carried her gun in the past to the park, but this time around she brought it along because it was foggy and dark, and she just had a feeling.
KVIs John Carlson had quite a chat about this incident Friday morning with Portlands Lars Larson, the syndicated conservative talk host who has latched onto this story due to its proximity. The incident happened at Lake Sacajawea near the Martin Dock, and the sleazebag who apparently did this may just be a known sex offender.

I am not saying that the woman acted improperly. I am merely stating the obvious, that a man who did what she did would likely be in legal trouble.
The law takes into account one’s ability to defend oneself. Whereas a man’s physical strength may be enough to counter the threat, a woman, generally physically weaker than a man, might need added protection.
If this was san francisco, the woman would be prosecuted for violating the right of the flasher to expose himself.
What should a woman do when a man exposes himself?
Point and laugh
as you get your gun out with the other hand..
Would the man in your hypothetical also have a small child with him? This was probably the real target in the real incident. And...there aren’t too many men who would be threatened by a woman exposing herself.
Suppose the woman was Hillary? Or the wookie?
This article is rife with inaccuracies. They should have looked at a map first before publishing.
First, Longview WA is NOT in Clark County.
I live in Longview and it is in Cowlitz County. Lake Sacajawea is a National Historical site and a very beautiful park that unfortunately attacts criminals.
The State of Washington dumps many sexual offenders here because the creeps request to be located here. There is an interstate bridge between Longview and Rainier, OR, which means easy access to the State of Oregon where sex offenders can prowl and offend, then cross back over the border.
By the way, some man pulls that stunt with me, I will first laugh and point causing his privates to shrivel to the size of raisins, then pull out my Ruger and shoot his raisins off.
Also, there was a child involved. Thank God she had an equalizer.
Pull a David Niven and say:
Well, that was almost bound to happen... But isn’t it fascinating to think that probably the only laugh that man will ever get in his life is by stripping off and showing his shortcomings?”
When my mom was 12 y.o. a guy flashed her from his car. She took the license number, told her dad who was a police officer. He took one or two coworkers and gave the guy a delivery of knuckle sandwiches.
If the woman were Hillary or the Wookie the man exposing himself would be in a limp state, he would probably be nauseous and possibly Flatulent.
Definitely dissapointed, and possibly suicidally depressed.
That was in the 1940s in a land called America.
If you have a jar of pickles in your pocket book, take one out and show him a gherkins.
That's a very outdated standard. There are many women who are stronger than the average man, and strength isn't the only factor in a fight anyway. Besides, if a man fails to block a blow at a certain target, his strength advantage will be severely reduced if not neutralized.
To look at it another way, if a woman knew martial arts, the law would never consider that as a reason to forbid her to pull a gun based on this standard, especially since she may have no idea what else that guy might do. So, why apply that standard to a man?
Exactly! Or you could say something such as, "oh, you poor thing, you must feel so inadequate!"
Pointing and laughing is a good second act, too.
A guy did that to me in a university library once in grad school. I was gathering books for a paper I had to write and he stepped out from behind the stacks with his zipper open and his willy out. I just pointed and said calmly, “Your pants are open.” He whirled around and vanished behind a row of books, and I went on with my research.
As Bernadette Peters said in Pink Cadillac:
Looks like a penis. Only smaller.
Cold cock him.
