FUCK ANTI RAPE NAIL POLISH
A feminist would be against a nail polish that could detect drugs in spiked drinks that are used to rape people. “No no no! Don’t protect yourself! Do not!!”
I think we should stop with the bullet proof vests, smoke detectors, security cameras, and instead, tell people stealing, murder, and arson is wrong! People obviously don’t know that.
Just like literally no one in society knows rape is wrong. Especially feminists who refuse to believe women are capable of rape and make men the bad guy every chance they get, even if the product is a good thing that could help men and women. No, let’s not give people a tool that could help them stay safe. Rapists are obviously sensible people, after you say “no, I don’t want it”, they back off. Totally. Yup.
Feminists are just big ol’ rape apologists.
Maybe we should go back to the days when women wore chastity belts. Can’t be raped when you’re wearing iron plated underwear.
I’d actually use that nail polish. I wanna go clubbing n stuff, I highly doubt it, but if someone got me a drink, I’d check it. Or even my own if I forgot to keep a close eye on it. Notice how I fucking say “someone” not “a guy”. Such a thing as lesbians and bisexual women exist. For a feminist, OP is the most un-intersectional one yet, next to that Andrea Grimes. They suddenly forget about everything and turn into the true misandrists they are, really. Anything to blame men. What a slap in the face to lesbians (and bis) who were raped by women.
While this nail polish is flawed (pretty geared towards protecting women more than men, for example), it’s a step in the right direction. As we’ve all heard a million times before, despite the naïveté of OP and others, we’re not gonna stop all rape.
We can, however, arm people with products that they can use as both a shield and a stick: if all people are protected against rape, no one can be a victim of it. That is a long way off and this type of thinking, the “why can’t you just believe every rape accusation despite little evidence? Why can’t people just stop raping?” mind set, is only hindering that.
Also, anecdote, but my female friend has been drugged at clubs and bars several times. And more often than not, it’s been from other girls who wanted to fuck her up. There were a couple times when she didn’t know who did it and it may well have been a potential rapist, but mostly it was bitter and jealous girls. I have a feeling drug-detecting nail polish would surely help her.
Why is better than believing women, you ask?
Well because if that was the way the law worked, that every female to claim rape against a male was believed and the man was locked away without due process or a trial or anything, you best believe certain vindictive women would use that to their advantage like crazy.
Rape accusations would skyrocket and men would be swiped away from everyday life and tossed in jail simply because a female claims he raped her. (This is totally erasing the men raped by women thing, too. Because that NEVER happens, right?)
Finding ways for people to protect themselves against harmful acts is NOT victim blaming. Victim blaming is to blame them after the fact, and that’s wrong. But to take precautions and have a general sense of awareness that shitty things happen and it’s good to protect yourself is NOT. If they choose to protect themselves against shitty people, more power to them.
Stop pretending like rape is a reflection of society and that telling people to stop raping others that already understand that concept is the solution. Rapists are not people who follow societal norms so to pretend that rapists are people with a general understanding of morals and that telling MEN AS A WHOLE to stop raping is any more helpful than this nail polish is absolutely fucking moronic.
