rapist

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.

Keep Calm And Carry One T-Shirt

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.

Thoughts?
