I've tried to bit my lip and not say a thing. However that failed.

What I'm hearing is that upon seeing someone she believed was being  
abused she should have just ignored it.  She was not offended and  
complained to someone. She was pissed off and ready to beat him to a  
bloody pulp. It is being presented that only one person in the tavern  
was offended. This is not the case. Only one person spoke up.  Alf  
was lucky she said something. There were a few others offended and  
they had no interest in speaking. A couple of big, ham-fisted squires  
were about to hurt him.  Several others were offended as well. It may  
very well have been a game, but a number of people saw it as abuse of  
a lady.

I won't even start on the old "she didn't mind defense."  As a  
teacher, I see kids and women abused who "don't care," or "deserved  
it."  While it very well may be true that the play here was fine with  
the lady in question. If she didn't speak up that night (and by the  
accounts I've heard, she didn't), how does a person know ?
