What a load of bullsh*t. Nobody is going to expect the average guy to be able to handle somebody that size, but if you have any sense of manhood or self-respect, you'll defend your pride - even if the physical confrontation that follows leaves you on the losing side.
As the saying goes: It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game. Would you rather be able to walk away physically unscathed, or with a scarred face held up high? The scenario here is less about your girl, and more about the universally pervasive issue of pride and respect; and whether you're willing to subject yourself to the risk of harm to protect those values, or to discard them for the sake of safety.
Whether it's your girl getting groped, your family or community being placed under threat, or your own integrity and honor being challenged directly, the way you navigate through any crisis will always be dependent on your values; and your character is defined by those moments. Physical wounds heal, but those memories will shape your identity for the rest of your life.
If your girl cannot appreciate the gesture - irrespective of the end-result, if she doesn't comprehend the reason for your actions, and/or she interprets your failure to win the f!ght as an humiliating indictment of your masculinity, rather than an empowering endorsement of it for having stood your ground in the first place, then consider that a blessing; you've exposed your partner as being the type of shallow dimwit that isn't worth your time.
In other words : If you're afraid to confront somebody who disrespects you because of a paralysing fear of being humiliated in the eyes of your girlfriend, then she's not worth f!ghting for in the first place. Your own self-respect, on the other hand, is always worth f!ghting for - no matter the opposition.
.. Yeah, I've given this sh*t a lot of thought.
