This is, quite possibly, the stupidest and most pathetic rape prevention self-defense instruction I've ever seen.
Put your hands in an awkward, unnatural position and try to "peck" the rapists eyes out? Moronic, but then these are liberal feminists in San Fran. They don't exactly live in reality.
I know modern feminists hate to admit the truth, but generally speaking, women are at a huge physical disadvantage in hand-to-hand combat with a man. The idea that a 100 pound woman is going to be able to fight off a determined 150-200 pound man with her bare hands is wishful thinking. It's the equivalent of my thinking I could fight off an attacker my roommates size if he wanted to kill me. My brother outweighs me by about 40-50 pounds and even now he can easily pin me down and keep me there. Why? Superior physical strength and a major weight advantage.
Listening to advice like this makes me angry because gullible women will see this and think it is actually a viable defense against a rapist when what it really is is feel good bullshit. A gun levels the playing field and allows women the means to stop predators who are otherwise physically superior. No other personal tool does that as effectively as a firearm. Carry your damn guns ladies!
Just out of curiosity, have any of my readers taken one of those "Rape Aggression Defense" classes they offer on college campuses? Are they as ridiculous and useless as the techniques in the video?
