Feminists against self defense

So ‘Miss Nevada’ is crowned ‘Miss USA’….yawn.

But what gives the feminists hot flashes, is not the objectification of women, but the answer that Miss Nevada gave regarding dealing with sexual assaults on college campuses. Apparently, according to at least one tweeting [screeching?] feminist, teaching women the means and confidence to defend themselves against such attacks…..only “empowers the rape culture”.

That’s like saying locking your front door, only empowers home burglaries.

  1. One Colorado politician, who has since resigned in lieu of being recalled (thus preserving her seat for the Democrats), lectured a rape victim that carrying a gun on campus would have somehow endangered her more. The young lady then asked how being completely defenseless protected her more. The politician had no reply.


  2. Yep..something in the air in Colorado. The Colorado Springs Department of Public Safety published a guide for women's self defense. Note what tool is missing:

    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.
