I was going to write some more about tomorrow’s election, but I am too incensed to discuss that now. Except to say that 90% of this election’s ads were negative. And they wonder why fewer and fewer people vote every year.

I have something else I would like to talk about: RAPE.

A co-worker’s friend’s daughter was raped this weekend. She was drugged, taken to a car and driven around during the incident. That means there was not one, but TWO rapist involved (they should both be castrated). Thankfully she had the sense to report it and go to the hospital. But this asshole is claiming it was consensual. Let’s break this down. First, how do these people find each other? What kind of person is willing to take part in something as depraved and vile as a rape, let alone, be friends with someone who is? Two, this poor girl was violated and now she will have to go through it all again if and when this goes to trial. The defense lawyer is going to tear her apart, bring up all and any misdeeds just to make her look unreliable and probably slutty. No one asks for rape, but they will make it look like she did.

I have had some regrettable partners in the past, but I have never claimed rape. Not many people do that, but enough have that the pigs out there think they can get away with it if they just claim “oh, it was consensual, she’s just embarrassed.” Consensual is a lawyer word. No one could think of a defense like this except for some slimy lawyer. I hate our world where something like this can happen.

I gave my co-worker RAINN’s number for her to give to her friend’s daughter. The Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network (RAINN) is a 24 hour hotline for victims of assault. They can be reached at 1.800.656.HOPE. They are staffed with counselors and people who want to help those who have been victimized.

What kind of society breeds these kinds of monsters, certainly not one I want to be a part of? How do cops see this everyday and go home at night?

PS – Watch your drinks at the bar, those drugs are damn near untraceable because they metabolize so fast. Watch your friends; don’t let them go off with strangers, even if they seem cognitive. EVIL IS OUT THERE.

How they find each other is the most troubling to me. Because if they can just bump into each other, then there's probably more out there than expected.

Sorry for the long comment, but I'd like to post this.

Through the Eyes of a Rapist

Through the eyes of a rapist (A MUST Read!!!)
This is important information for females of ALL ages.

When this was sent to me, I was told to forward it to my lady friends.
I forwarded it to almost everyone in my address book.
My men friends
have female friends and this information is too important to miss someone.
Please pass it along.

A group of rapists and date-rapists in prison were interviewed on what
they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:

1) The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle. They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun, braid or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.

2) The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women who's clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around specifically
to cut clothing.

3) They also look for women on their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.

4) Men are most likely to attack & rape in the early morning, between 5:00a.m. and 8:30a.m.

5) The number one place women are abducted from/attacked is grocery store parking lots. Number two is office parking lots/garages. Number three is public restrooms.

6) The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to another location where they don't have to worry about getting caught.

7) Only 2% said they carried weapons because rape carries a 3-5 year sentence but rape with a weapon is 15-20 years.

8) If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize thatgoing after you isn't worth it because it will
be time-consuming.

9) These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas, or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands. Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon.
So, the idea is to convince these guys you're not worth it.

10) Several defense mechanisms he taught us are:
If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face
and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk: "I can't believe it is so cold out here", "we're in for a bad winter." Now you've seen their face and could
identify them in a line-up; you lose appeal as a target.

11) If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell STOP or STAY BACK! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they'd leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking
for an EASY target.

12) If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yell "I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY" and holding it out will be a deterrent.

13) If someone grabs you, you can't beat them with strength but you can by outsmarting them. Remember: You've got to THINK RIGHT NOW ! And make your move count! Your life is at stake!! If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under
the arm (between the elbow and armpit) OR in the upper inner thigh VERY VERY HARD.
One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands - the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it hurts.

14) After the initial hit, always GO for the GROIN. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy's testicles it is extremely painful. You might think that you'll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our
instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble, and he's out of there.

15) When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor
did it to me without using much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.

16) Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don't dismiss it, go with your instincts!!!

You may feel a little silly at the time, but you'd feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.

PLEASE READ THEN FORWARD THIS TO EVERY WOMAN YOU KNOW, and anyone with pre -teen or teen girls
