Remember IT IS NOT A WOMAN’S RESPONSIBILITY TO PREVENT RAPE. In the world we live in, however, women should be empowered with any tools in order to protect themselves. Source for more facts follow NowYouKno
i think the best but also saddest thing about this is that MEN created this product to protect women from MEN
It is a woman’s responsibility to prevent a situation that could put herself in danger, just as it is with anyone. No one is responsible for you… but you.
To suggest that rape is a product of men is no different than saying greed is a product of women, or drug dealing is a product of blacks, or sexual slavery is a product of Hispanics.
You all turn out to be sexist and prejudice when you reduce a problem down to the lowest common denominator which happens to be something that people cannot help, ie being male, being black, etc. By saying or implying “rape is a problem because of men” you are blaming me (a man) when I have never raped anyone in my life. So on that note:
What the fuck is this comment. This comparison is totally fucked. Especially given it was said in this article that men made this product, obviously they’re not saying that “all men rape women”, so obviously nobody was putting even implicit blame onto you for being a man. Not everything is about you personally. People on this website seem to have aan incredibly hard time understanding that not everything refers specifically to them or is targeted at them or caters to them. Seriously.
On top of that, had there been any validity to what was being said in your comment, you immediately destroyed it by starting off by blaming the victim. “It’s a woman’s job to prevent dangerous situations, just like anyone else. Therefore rape cannot be attributed to men.” Um, ok?
Is it a deer’s fault that we hunt it? (After all, deer don’t have much to defend themselves with) Or is the onus on the hunter who shoots it? Nobody blames humans who don’t hunt for the fact deer are killed by some humans, so why do you feel blame is directed on to you personally if someone says men rape women? If you haven’t hunted an animal, you aren’t a hunter. If you haven’t raped a woman. You’re not a rapist. You’re literally defending yourself against something nobody is even accusing you of in the first place.
It’s not any person’s responsibility to break their back trying to prevent bad shit happening to them. Even the most careful person can be a victim of another person’s violence. We can’t control other people, which is why even if someone is utterly careless and goes to a scummy bar alone without a cell phone and gets so wasted they can’t stand, it’s NOT their fault if some slimeball tries to harm them.
So on that note:
Right back at ya.
“Fault” is about responsibility. If you behave in a responsible matter, there’s less likely to be a situation where anyone is at fault. That said, the nail polish is a concept at best- it doesn’t exist, at least not at this point.
