Carl Had to Go and Pull the Trigger
After Carl has showered us with cuddly, fuzzy, nice feelings, I feel it is my responsibility to cloud my nice image a bit. I'm not sure how this incident squares with the modesty codes in Dubai that Gloria Furman enlightened us with in last week's MoS podcast, but this story of a female US Navy sailor in Dubai putting her rapist assailant out with a triangle choke warms my heart.
And it is exactly why I have no problem as a complementarian saying that I support women training in Mixed Martial Arts. As a matter of fact, I would say that enrolling in a self defense class with your special someone is a much better Valentine's Day gift than a fuzzy, nice, teddy bear. Nice isn't all it's cracked up to be.
