on ‘fighting back’

Doesn’t just mean clawing or grappling or other forms of physical resistance.

Resisting takes many forms, some of which get discounted because they don’t appear on the surface as resistance. Sometimes resistance is just doing what you need to do to get through. Which is what I did. Which is what so many others have done. Do what you need to do. Self-preservation is resistance as much as physical resistance is, as much as systemic resistance is. No one strategy is best (though I generally tend toward the peaceful and nonviolent).
