Protecting one’s woman

Men being bigger and stronger than women, I was musing how in the old days, a man used his strength to protect his woman. However evolved you may be, it’s hard not to feel a tinge of pride in being associated with this classic role.

These fine feelings were dimmed a little by the thought that, realistically speaking, probably about 80% of that protection was against other men.
