    ^^^^This thought applies to anything in life. I am a realist holding hope that things will one day be ideal.

    Bad people will always do bad things, subsequently, there will be victims. As for any of the women I have trained, they won't be easy targets. I also don't provide the Kool-Aid for them to delude themselves either.

    The most important thing you can do to prevent violent crimes is to teach situational awareness as a first line, train heavily in cardio and speed work as a second line and then the eye-poke and groin-stomp **** as a last resort.

    One thing I remover from my college days, feminist groups (and there were plenty on campus back then) live in a surreal fucking bubble.

    Everything longer than it was wide was a phallic symbol... Not even kidding I remember arguing with one of them about the obvious attempt a reinforcing a patriarchal society by covering campus with light posts. I mean, how the hell else do you design a light post?
    Would it be better and safer for women to have the campus be dark at night?

    Every time a guy was standing while talking to a woman who was sitting it was an example of men trying to assert dominance... Couldn't possibly be that she sat down because she was tired or (god forbid) he gave her his seat.

    There were more examples I can't remember right now but apparently they all grew up, joined twitter, and watch the miss USA pageant. I would think they would have more problems with the pageant in and of itself....

    But I have never, ever remotely understood a fucking thing these women were saying, so what the hell do I know?

    Where? And what is different about it now? Or is it simply that human behavior remains shitty as usual and the discourse is different because rape is the hot toy of the season at Friscodykes R Us?

    It's very simple to understand feminists. They're angry at the world because they're ugly and unappealing.

    "Look at a missile! How phallic can you get, and, of course, designed by a man. [smug]"

    "That's probably because a flying vagina didn't work too well."

    As for the original topic:

    Don't want your house looted? Get good locks, strong doors, and an alarm. Good idea, Erm!

    Don't want to get robbed? Avoid high crime areas, don't ostentatiously display wealth, and try to look like you know where you're going. Good idea, Erm!

    Guys, don't want to get beaten up? Don't go out at night alone and get falling down drunk. Good idea, Erm!

    Gals, don't want to get raped? Don't go out at night alone and get falling down drunk. RAEP CULTURE!!1!!! You patriarchal asshole! Nobody should rape!

    Bull fucking ****. Go ahead and have sympathy...**** them and this bullshit. Most men do not rape. The ones that do ignore the law and morality just like every other criminal.
    Her actual quote:
    “I believe that some colleges may potentially be afraid of having a bad reputation and that would be a reason it could be swept under the rug, because they don’t want that to come out into the public,”Nia Sanchez said. “But I think more awareness is very important so women can learn how to protect themselves. Myself, as a fourth-degree black belt, I learned from a young age that you need to be confident and be able to defend yourself. And I think that’s something that we should start to really implement for a lot of women.”

    Oh and can I get an LOL, for feminists whining about what an objectified woman stated. I find heaps of irony and hypocrisy in their words.

    Not in American society at large, but certain factions of the populace are culturally prone to rape. The close-knit and sometimes rigorously structured nature of these isolated communities can make it extremely difficult for a victim to report what happened to him/her. Just check this out:

    While I agree, reporting and rape culture are two different arguments.

    You get it! As I said, bad people tend to do bad things (I generalize a lot). If rape is the name of the game this year and car-jacking is next, then that's just the way it happens.

    I've never heard of a women's self defense class that concluded with "and if women don't learn self defense, its their own fault for being assaulted".
