When outnumbered and unskilled the best way to defeat the enemy is to draw all attention on them. Too many witnesses can help a situation well. I'd do what a friend once did in a similar situation. He used the old street preacher gimmick. Started pointing at them, screaming "sinners repent" and broke into a sermon on the evil of the world using them as his stage. All the people kept looking in that direction and the 2 punks slowly backed off then left. Even most gang members wouldn't shoot you with 10-20 witnesses watching. People are quick to pass by someone in need but they always stop to watch a traffic accident or train wreck .

There's no need for me to change sex. I'd certainly go for help if there's a group harassing some one.

This scenario is missing a lot of details. To what extent is this group disturbing this girl? Are they a bunch of thugs surrounding her, with obviously ill intent? In that case, I don’t know what I'd do, because it's all well and good saying you'd do something, but it's a different matter entirely when you have to think in the heat of the moment.

Being outnumbered, there's no way I'd just approach them, all high and mighty, and play the hero who'd probably get himself stabbed. If I could find a random pipe lying around, I'd probably approach them. But since things wouldn't be that convenient, since I heard that the best thing to do in these situations is shout "Fire!" instead of "Help!" since that draws more attention, I'd probably just do that. It'd probably piss them off, too, and get their attention on me... so that'd be fun...

To be frank, I just let them settle it out. I don't like to act fully on impulse, even if the situation would appear to be hostile. Then again that might just be an excuse for my sense of apathy.

There are too many variables to make a clear cut decision on this.
Is it a decent sized group, four or five people? Getting involved is going to get you screwed.
Are you alone, or with friends? Your group vs. their group.
Where are you at? If you're in more of a ghetto area with gang stuff going on, you walk away and get police notified.
Do you have a CCW for a pistol? I haven't gone through the course so I'm unsure as to the specifics involved law-wise, but it could be a deterrent.
What reward are you seeking? Is it worth it?

I can be highly confrontional when I see people ganging up on one person(assuming it's either violence or just sexual harassment), so I'd try to help, for better or worse.

I'm a huge guy, though, so it could work out.

I'm a girl and I have no muscle, but I would probably bring my father who is a huge, scary-looking Middle-Eastern man.

Okay real life situation....walking through the French Quarter in New Orleans around 9 oclock at night, See a crack head couple getting into it loudly in the same area a Ghost Tour is occuring....I Happen to be with my Pops whose 60 and we're half drunk...but weary and able to analyze and discern the situation that was quickly escalating...the Tour guide trys to call cops but theres no service in that specific area and we are in the French Quarter anyway...hard for police to respond to any situation fast enough in there. An old homeless guy sleeping nearby decides to actually act while these fat tourists just stare in fear at the situation...rightfully so...as the crack head maniac dude slaps the woman and starts beating homeless guy down...Still no service...even for us...the only thing left to do was to run and grab the guy and quickly and decisively go all in...My father and I restrained the maniac as best we could and finally local private security people from a nearby bar with an actual cop helped get everything under control...and everyone was cool again while my Dad and I left to go find another spot to drink lol.

The point is...real life is not scripted you have to make decisions whether right or wrong...that crazy dude couldve easily had a gun or a knife on him...but we ran in anyway...If I was all alone I'd prob do the same...If I see any person getting hurt in front of me I gotta do something...it happens automatically.

I'd say tho...basic rules...always call cops first...especially if there's more of them than you...If your over 18 help out if you can...if your still super young...that man strength doesnt come in yet...so you might really get hurt.
