rape

Not sure if serious, but as usual there’s a kickstarter:

If I ever have a girlfriend, someday a wife, and then possibly a daughter, I hope they will want to learn how to use a gun and hopefully exercise their common sense… not rely on some stupid looking / restrictive garment.  What do I know though, maybe there is a huge market for this type of thing?  Talk about living in fear though.  The fact rape / rapists exist makes me so angry.  You guys know my feeling about the death penalty for things like this… I say light all of their asses up.  Maybe there’s a market for men’s anti-rape underwear too?  Just trying to lighten the feel of this post.

Anti-Rape-Shorts

Imagine if a girl got too drunk to remember the stupid combo and then had to go to the bathroom?  Yea that wouldn’t be pretty, you’d have to get the jaws of life in there ASAP.

You can check out the Indiegogo campaign for more info and to help the cause if you’re interested.

With a song even:

The list in question:

  1. Be realistic about your ability to protect yourself.
  2. Your instinct may be to scream, go ahead!  It may startle your attacker and give you an opportunity to run away.
  3. Kick off your shoes if you have time and can’t run in them.
  4. Don’t take time to look back; just get away.
  5. If your life is in danger, passive resistance may be your best defense.
  6. Tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating.
  7. Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone.
  8. Yelling, hitting or biting may give you a chance to escape, do it!
  9. Understand that some actions on your part might lead to more harm.
  10. Remember, every emergency situation is different.  Only you can decide which action is most appropriate.

ENDO rape prevention list:

  1. Shoot rapist.

Girls please just Keep Calm And Carry One, that’s the best measure.  I actually really don’t see why there was such a big deal made about the original list, besides the fact that rape is understandably a touchy subject.  As far as I can tell, the point of the list was basically “get away, or try and stop it by grossing your attacker out.”  I remember hearing tips like that for years and although I don’t pretend to know the dynamics of that type of situation, it seems to me like a woman’s options are quite limited if they are not armed.
