Like that wasn't implied.
I don't know, was it implied? You say below that it's worse to have to protect yourself from rape than the fact that rape actually happens.
However, although everybody (not just women, it lso happens to men) is potentially a rape victim, i find it is even worse that one would've to put a rape-aXe on before going out of the house, because it's almost like planing to getting raped, in my opinion.
What a ridiculous thing to say. It's not planning
to get raped anymore than carrying mace is planning
to get assaulted or having a gun in your home is planning
to be broken into. This is a completely illogical argument made by people who do not want to face reality. Rape is a common occurrence and a real threat, primarily to women. And it's a terrible reality to accept, but are you going to ignore it and hope it doesn't happen to you, or are you going to take measures to protect yourself (which go beyond the use of one device)?
It's something like one in five women in America will be raped in their life time.
and by the way it doesn't prevent rape at all, because one has to be introduced for the rape-aXe to work, so it would be a rape anyway.
It doesn't prevent it. But it does stop it.
