b) Go without, all the whilst feeling resentful that the gear is not available via PvE which is the VAST majority of this game. (If PvP was the majority I'm sure they'd have more than 8 maps available. Care to argue that point?)
Options a) and b) are not good for the longevity of the game. Then again if you cared for the longevity of the game you might be able to see that.
The only way a reputation system can be implemented without situations a) or b) eventuating is for that gear to only be usable in PvP. That is the fairest scenario of all.
If you feel forced to something and have problem with it - do not do it - problem solved.
I PvP mostly, and I was also forced to grind STFs and other repeatable crap for rep. Now, I would rather be obliterated 100x in PvP by the most horrible cheese there is, instead of doing Cure space with 4 total noobs who are unable to distribute shields and their dmg is comparable to Npc miranda.
