For years we’ve been inundated with the Left’s whining about the so called “War On Women”, and sadly there are plenty of women willing to be used by the Left to push idiotic schemes and policies that don’t do a damn thing to actually help women, except to further portray them as abortion hungry sluts. They have managed to reduce women to nothing more than a vagina with boobs. Forget using their brains. Forget trying to educate themselves. To find a dream and work for it. To making their homes and lives the best they can be. Being responsible and mature about their choices. Fuggetaboutit. It’s all about what’s between their legs and who is going to pay the plumbing bill.
So it’s not going to surprise me much to hear the crickets chirping from the so-called Women’s Rights groups over what Colorado State Rep. Joe Salazar spewed out of his worthless piehole recently. They wouldn’t dare to challenge an inept member of their misogynistic leftist masters for portraying them as overemotional, mentally weak and incapable of rational thought in the midst of a crisis.
While debating a bill on the Colorado house floor that would ban all firearms from Colorado university campuses, freshman lawmaker Joe Salazar (D-Thorton) suggested female college students should not have guns because they may shoot a non-rapist due to an irrational fear of being raped.
Now I think that if you looked at the statistics, the chances of a woman being raped on a college campus are certainly great enough, that that fear doesn’t qualify as irrational. I suppose he believes that having Homeowners Insurance and a fire extinguisher shows an irrational fear of your house burning down? Plus I take exception to the fact that he is painting women as walking masses of paranoia to the point of pointing a gun at every moving object just because she thinks it’s going to rape her. A Leftist portrayal of women incapable of being rational thinkers and unable to recognize a legitimate threat to their safety, and worse, incapable of carrying and safely using a firearm to protect themselves. Projection anyone?
“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know, if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop a round at somebody.”
Feeeeewings….nothing more than Feeeewings…..
Women are only able to feeeeeel like someone’s following them. We aren’t smart enough to KNOW if someone is following us. We only feeeeel like we’re about to be in trouble. We aren’t capable of KNOWING if we are about to be in trouble. We can only feeeeeel like the man making threatening advances on us is about to rape us when he’s obviously only selling Girl Scout Cookies. We’re so damn stupid that we’ll double tap his ass right through those boxes of Thin Mints without a second thought.
Call boxes and safe zones? We’ve all seen what those “Gun Free Zones” have done to ensure that people aren’t mass murdered by the insane. Call boxes…what if they are out of order? What if there is no one there to answer the call? Can they absolutely guarantee 100% there will always be help using those? Whistles…. I don’t know a single male that doesn’t cringe at the thought of a woman blowing a whistle at him. That ranks right up there with “Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time.”.
I don’t go around feeeeewing that someone is going to do something to me that they shouldn’t. I might feel that I am uncomfortable about a situation, but I assess what’s going on around me, and determine what is causing the uneasiness. Is there something or someone around me that is threatening, or is it the fact that I just watched Texas Chainsaw Massacre IV last night? Is that man following me across the parking lot to attack me or is he just walking to his own car? If I can walk with someone else to my car I do it. If I feel threatened and can change course and walk toward other people I do it. I don’t assume my only defense is drawing a gun, but I won’t be an easy victim either. If there is a way to get away from a threat first..I do it. Walk tall, briskly, and eyes working. My firearm positioned where I can draw it quickly. If I judge that there is indeed a threat, can I get to where there are other people or will I have to stand my ground? Rapists prefer victims that are not paying attention to anything around them. A woman with her head down texting on her cell phone is an easier target than one walking briskly with her head up and looking around. I don’t get twitchy just because I’m a bag of over emotional hormones waiting for a chance to “pop a round” on some innocent guy standing 30 feet away, on the chance that I feeeeeel he’s thinking of raping/mugging/harming me. Of all the years that I have carried a gun, if I got that damn paranoid, there would be a mass shooting every time I went to Walmart.
Rep. Salazar isn’t the only numbnuts spouting drivel like this. The University of Colorado-Colorado Springs is offering some “advice” to students who may get attacked on campus, at home or on the road.
1. Be realistic about your ability to protect yourself.
I am very realistic about my ability to protect myself with my .45. Not so realistic about that damn whistle you keep trying to force me to use.
2. Your instinct may be to scream, go ahead! It may startle your attacker and give you an opportunity to run away.
How about I aim my .45 at his chest and scream “STOP or I’ll SHOOT your sorry ass!”
3. Kick off your shoes if you have time and can’t run in them.
If I have time to kick off my shoes, I have time to draw my firearm.
4. Don’t take time to look back; just get away.
Ya think? What if I want to stop to make sure he’s still following?
5. If your life is in danger, passive resistance may be your best defense.
If my life is in danger, a high velocity bullet to center mass is my best defense dumbass. Plus…could you please define “passive resistance”? Is that something like Jumbo Shrimp or Congressional Ethics?
6. Tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating.
Sorry Dude…I’m surfing the crimson wave with a case of crabs. Better luck next time.
7. Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone.
Making my attacker vomit blood and shit his pants will convince him as well.
8. Yelling, hitting or biting may give you a chance to escape, do it!
9. Understand that some actions on your part might lead to more harm.
Ok…so yelling, hitting, and biting is a good idea, BUT it might lead to more harm…so don’t do that. Gotcha.
10. Remember, every emergency situation is different. Only you can decide which action is most appropriate.
Only I can decide…as long as I decide to do it the way these asshats want me to do it. Which would most likely end with me being raped, beaten, and most probably dead, because we can’t have these over emotional, weak women using a tool that would most certainly ensure they weren’t assaulted in the first damn place!
Standard Leftist bullshit. Let’s just give women the illusion of being safe. Let’s make them discount human nature and believe that whistles and call boxes will stop someone from committing a crime against you. Let’s make women believe they are incapable of using compatible force against an attacker to stop them. Give her a stainless steel whistle and she’s invincible. If by chance that whistle doesn’t work? Well just lay still and let him get it over with. No sense ventilating his chest cavity just because he decided to rape you. We all know he will probably just say thank you and offer you a ride home. We’re convinced he would never try to kill you to keep you from identifying him to the police. We’re sure he won’t ever do it again to another woman. After all…it’s just sex right?
