Frankly, I’d rather my daughters have a few more options than peeing on a rapist.
The advisory was updated Monday evening, just hours after the Colorado state House of Representatives passed a package of gun control bills that includes one that would make it illegal for people with concealed weapons permits to carry guns on the campuses of public universities. The bills still have to go to the state Senate and governor.
Some of the pieces of advice which were updated Monday evening on the university’s public safety website are ones that many would find familiar, from running away without looking back to “yelling, hitting or biting” your attacker.
But the following two suggestions are a little stranger and are already causing quite the outcry on social media: “Tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating,” and “Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone.”
What is the protection from ridiculous academia?
Is there a penicillin for that?
I’d rather your daughters (and any other female) to make the attacker pee his pants, rather than the other way around.
Salazar is widely ignored by the MSM, yet Akin and Romney were best friends.
Time for Chuck Todd to deny media bias exists again.
Aside from the obvious stupidity of the university’s public safety advice, this is the kind of response expected from the left, ignoring reality.
Although there is a gag order, it is known that James Holmes sought out university psychiatrist Lynne Fenton for help weeks before the shooting. Pima Community College suspended Jared Lee Loughner, requiring a psychiatric clearance to return to the school. Adam Lanza’s mother was working to get him institutionalized.
The condemnation of guns as the casual factor for the mindless killings by disturbed gunmen is just too convenient. It makes about as much sense as peeing on a rapist. Now is time to deal with the real problem; mental health.
Maybe one of the history professors could post something from the 19th century - along the lines that it is “impossible to sheath a sword into a vibrating scabbard”.
Mark Maley and Anothervoice? What say you on the side of rapists?
...As if we ladies are ready at any time to urinate or vomit at will. I dare say I’d like to possess that ability - it could certainly help clear an overcrowded space in a hurry.
This has been standard self-defense of last resort training for sexual assault prevention for decades. At least since the early 1980s.
Then some clown from Yahoo or CNN hears about it for the first time and it becomes national news. We’ve gotten so stupid in this country. It’s a shame.
What if the perp is into “water sports” or something perverse like that? Or what if he severely beats her (or kills her) in retaliation? Like Owen says, more options are desirable.
I agree with Jason.
This isn’t new
I’m with the medieval , ” no mercy ” castration crowd on this issue.
If the attacked have to live with the memory , so should the attacker.
Yes these type of tricks you have to adopt so that your attacker will also think twice which will help you to leave and also attacker will not do that any other time which will help you to get RSSto get protected.
