Why Haven't I Been Beat Up Yet?

Okay get this:

I'm a woman.

I'm an atheist.

I'm gay.

I have attended pro-choice protests.

I live in Alabama.

Yet I have not yet been beat up. Why is this? I'm living loud and proud, and I know there are haters out there, but nobody acts against me when I'm on my own. (When I'm out in public with a girlfriend, it's another story. People get hostile then.)

Oh wait, I forgot, I'm trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and could take on pretty much any attacker without a problem, so long as they weren't armed. Even if they were armed, I know how to disarm them and how to operate a gun. So I'm in a pretty good position. It would take multiple attackers with guns in order to take me down. So instead of getting beat up, I would probably be the one doing the beating.

Is it possible that people sense that I am strong and that is why they don't mess with me? And how come more gay people don't learn martial arts so that they can defend themselves?

    I've always found that trouble just slides off me - it's always been like that.  If it doesn't, then apparently I have something of a reputation, I don't know where that came from.  Something like what Kairan said.
