This is stupid. You would rather be raped than shoot someone you know? Seriously, you are worried about someone who is raping you?
I guess it is fully your choice to not shoot them, but don't take away my choice to shoot them.
Conservatives and reactionaries are the two largest groups of idiots in existence. If you want to know what the Democrats are trying to do in the United States, look up gun policy of Australia on a reliable internet source you misguided ignorant idiots.
A year ago I went out to dinner with my girlfriend, her sister and her sister's husband. Her sisters husband was an ex-college football player. From the start I cold tell he was a real a-hole. After a few drinks at dinner he became quite angry and belligerent with his wife. My girlfriend said a few things, and before long he was yelling and screaming at her. I decided it was time for my girl and I to leave. Suddenly he forcefully grabs his wife by the arm, yanks her from her chair and begins to pull her toward the restaurant exit door, all the time yelling "F you people, and referring to his wife as a stupid 'B' word". Bear in mind this guy was twice my size, 6'3, 250 or 260 lbs. I told him that he it would be best to let his wife go, and that he leave and cool off for a while. That's when he grabbed me by the collar with total madness in his eyes. Being that I had no choice but to protect myself and his wife, I drew my Glock-17 and put 3 rounds through his chest. He died there in the restaurant.
Subsequently, I was acquitted of any wrong doing. Yet, for some stupid reason my "ex-girlfriend" , her parents, the sister and her kids despise me. I don't get it. I tried to explain to them that, first and foremost, I was saving my life. Moreover, I saved their lives and possibly the lives of their children. It's crazy because over the last year I've received threats from the guy I shot brother and father. About 2 months ago I saw the brother leaving a local store. I was sitting in my car. When he saw me he began to approach my vehicle. I wasted no time as I drew my gun and began firing. Fortunate for him he saw me remove my weapon from my waist holster, and he took off running. I thought I might have winged him but I could find a blood trail. The bottom line is my gun has saved, and will continue to save my life.
Why is it that it appears that her "tan" is only from the head to almost the bottom of her neck and her arms and hands?
Liberals & feminists really believe that ALL Men are rapists. This is the basis for this idiot's thinking when she says we have to "train men not to be rapists". (If we could only get men and boys into re-education camps, the world would be heaven on earth). Zerlina Maxwell is an ignorant, man-hating fascist who would happily force people to comply with her stupid view of the world. But she would also happily deprive women and men the choice of whether or not to have a firearm to defend yourself.
If guns stopped crime, military bases would be the safest places in the world? Lady, when I joined the military, I surrendered my right to keep and bear arms. Military bases are the biggest gun free zones in the country. Which is why the Fort Hood terrorist attack was so easy for him to pull off. If you are not a military police officer, An armorer transporting weapons, on the range, or in a combat zone, you are prohibited from carrying arms and ammunition.
Leftist logic: we must tax Americans more so that the money can be used to fund research on how to identify and remove the "rape gene" from the DNA of all potential males. If the gene cannot be removed, simply abort the potential rapist, so that a rape may be prevented.
"we need to tell men to stop raping women"...gee, why the hell didn't Maxwell just tell her assailant to "stop raping" her during her sexual assault? Gawd, the more I hear the comments from Libtards, the more disgusted I get.
We think this is a tone-deaf anti-woman anti-self-defense screed. But it's simpler than that. Democrats are genuinely more afraid of guns than criminals. Yup, they actually fear inanimate objects to those who would use them.
The biggest reason for this problem is that the violent criminal class (and their sympathetic immediate family members) is a significant part of the Democrat base. So they can't be super-tough on criminals and lock them away for adequate sentences, because they'll be incarcerating their own voters.
For this reason, Dems never see violent criminals (especially inner-city criminals, who account for 99% of gun violence in this country) as a problem, but rather as victims themselves who need more Government "care", unless of course the criminal is a white male "gun nut" or anyone else who is clearly not ONE OF THEM; those are the only REAL criminals to Dems. So they go after the guns instead.
Crazy feminists. Now we are proposing to indoctrinate all men and "train" them to not become rapists. Eeeyeah... Why does that seem psycho to me?
This is amazing. I wonder if her rapist, that she knew, thought she wanted to have sex. "No means no," has it's place. Certainly it does. Certainly it's been the case that men (yes, in general terms) have thought, because *society* has thought, that "yes" up to a certain point means "yes" all the way. It's entirely possible that her rapist thought that drunk necking means drunk sex. If she says... should I shoot someone I *know*? I think that, frankly, if someone you know is raping you, the fact that you know him is irrelevant... unless what you're talking about is drunk sex or angry sex or "you led me on" sex. But maybe I'm just a bloodthirsty person and figure that if someone I knew and trusted, and perhaps even liked, suddenly turned into a rapist I'd shoot him (if I could) and call him an ambulance.
But actually, yes, you shouldn't get drunk with a bunch of other people who are drunk and expect either yourself or anyone else to have good judgement or to accurately interpret other's intentions.
Society telling women (and men) not to get drunk is every bit as proper as society telling men than no means no and anything else is rape. I mean, how unfair is to demand that having impaired judgement is a woman's god given right, because all of the equally drunk men are supposed to have good judgement *for* her?
And no one who is going to go drinking should plan to be armed at the same time anyway. Getting drunk is like the ultimate self-disarming thing a person can do. It would be horribly irresponsible to carry a weapon and get drunk (get drunk, not have a drink) so you're giving up your sensibility, your responsibility and your weapons (if you're at all responsible)... in effect you're disarming yourself in all ways.
And I quote Zerina:
"I’m very opinionated. I want people to be convinced that my point of view on a particular topic is the right one. If I’m allowing you to think of a certain topic in a different way than you would have before reading something I wrote– that’s what I really enjoy. When people are like, “I would have never thought about it that way,” that’s my favorite feedback on a piece."
Well Zerina the only thing you convinced me of is that your an idiot... good luck with Law school.
Sigh, yet another political (insert title here) rambling on about their typical useless solutions that don't address the problems.
Telling men not to rape.The woman was a victim herself and she seems to feel telling men not to rape is an acceptable solution.It begs the question that during her ordeal, did she tell the person (who was a friend) not to rape her?
Everyone should be terrified by the level of logic and common sense that these kind of people have who are and/or wish to be our political leaders.It's insane.
Liberalism is a mental disorder.
This one is pretty insane. Rapes so that Americans can be disarmed so that the state can assume control.
"We can prevent men from raping if the women tell them not to do it."
I'm not even sure how to respond to that type of denial of reality?
Bad people exist and you have to be able to fight back with what ever level of force is needed to prevent assualt, murder or rape.
How does someone like this get this type of belief. It's is extraordinary.
Also, how does someone like this get on TV?
She can't even convince these two that she's right, but she's sure she can stop a rapist from raping her. My god, this is what delusion looks like!
The scariest thing is, seeing how confident she looks that she has the perfect answer!!
I cannot imagine how a person this ignorant has managed to get the position she has, unless she has allowed herself to be raped to the top of her career path.
Rapists are criminals - they don't obey the law at all. Of course NO means nothing to them. How stupid can stupid be!!!!
That'll do it. Just tell men to not raping women. ??? I guess it's better tactic than throwing up or fainting. NOT!
I never thought that while I was riding my bike through a state park that I would be attacked from behind and taken into a field of weeds and raped. Gosh, if I had only told the guy "don't rape me" he would have stopped? In fact I did plead and beg to be let go, to no avail.
That is the most absurd, stupid, idiotic statement I have ever heard! The fact that she even repeated her words at the end to "make her point" just shows me how stupid she really is. It's obvious it didn't work for her, either. I'm sure she told her "known" attacker "don't rape me" but, he did it anyway.
Teach young men not to rape, but should you decide to, please pick up an unlimited supply of condoms at the school's free condom dispensers.
And you school girls, you can dress as provocatively as you wish. You have rights you know and no one should judge you.
Okay, zerlina, if you know and trust the assailant, then be gentle and tactful when you tell them to back off or you'll blow them away. You can even whisper it in their ear.
I think if we would tell people not to become Democrats that would solve 75% of all of our problems.
Men stop raping women
Homosexuals stop being homosexual
Pedophiles stop raping children
gang bangers stop killing people
Drink Drivers, don't drink and drive
Bank robbers stop robbing banks
People who believe in the 2nd amendment and the right to bear arms to defend yourself from the scum of the earth that stalk in the shadows... Stop! Just say "NO" and the criminal/attacker will understand your desire to not be a victim and will go home, cuddle up with a good book and never again attack anyone.
Libtard thinking.... It's friggin' frightening!
Guns aren’t the answer, just tell men to stop raping women
Gun control is not the answer, just tell crazy people to stop shooting innocents.
She's actually repeating a pretty standard refrain of feminist theory which is that the only person who should be blamed for a rape is the rapist. This mostly comes up in response to instances of victim-blaming (e.g. "you shouldn't have gone out dressed like that! What did you expect?!") and it's not entirely without reason. I believe, ideally, it's not unreasonable to say that a woman should be able to wear whatever she wants and drink as much as she wants without the fear of getting sexually assaulted.
Where I disagree with the feminists - and Ms. Maxwell here -- is the notion that rape can be prevented by education. Sure teaching men to treat women better might cut down on incidents of acquaintance-rape etc. still we tell our kids not to kill anyone but our jails are nevertheless full of murderers.
That said, I'm also not sure that giving drunk coeds handguns is the best solution to this problem either.
Oh heck! My head is going to explode! Every time I think Libtards can't possibly get more idiotic, along comes another one and plunges depths of idiocy never imagined by me before!
I had to come back and write one more comment. If liberals won't read the Bible or take it seriously, perhaps they'd pay attention to a pagan Roman philosopher, Epictetus. Here's the first paragraph of his Enchiridion:
'Some things are in our control and others not. Things in our control are opinion, pursuit, desire, aversion, and, in a word, whatever are our own actions. Things not in our control are body, property, reputation, command, and, in one word, whatever are not our own actions.'
Things not in our control include 'command.' We can give a command, but if we believe we have control over our command being acted on, Epictetus instructs us that we are enslaved to something outside our control. In the case of liberals, it's their theory. And to prove their theories--they have enslave us to their loony tunes world.
I am completely baffled by the liberal mind. It assumes that proper brainwashing can separate us from our human nature--not just this poor misguided woman who, it appears from her comments, believes in mandatory social programming for all men, but all liberals--laws to keep us from eating what they don't want us to eat (for our own good), laws to keep us from owning what they don't want us to eat (for the greater good), laws that tell us that the fundamental institution of all society (the family) isn't necessary.
We (the western world) have slipped through the looking glass.
How in the world can we restore sanity when Hollywood, news media--including print media, and our universities, colleges, and K12 systems have distorted and jettisoned reasoned thought and replaced it with shallow emotion?
It's what she leaned in school, the comparative approach to which the desired effects are only an estimate. Maybe she forgot she lives in the U.S.A., where rape is not moral and citizens sometimes have these things called guns which is the ultimate defense, whereupon
they protect your physical and mental property, just in case, for that piece of mind.
But hey, buy a shotgun.
I don't know if anyone else hinted on this but I would like to address the last comment from Ms. Maxwell. "If guns were the answer, the military would be the safest place in the world; and it is not." Here again the context of this statement is accusatory and false.
While serving as a recruiter for the Army, for three years, there was a big scandal of a recruiter of a different branch that did a very bad thing. He started a inappropriate relationship with a recruit. This made talking to any female applicant even tougher when parents would make the statement that; and I am paraphrasing here, "I would never allow my daughter to serve because she will get raped." Yes I had a father tell me this after his daughter requested to talk to me. This parent went to on to say that all military men are would be rapist and that he felt safer with his daughter going to a local college. The college he gave me will remain nameless out of respect for the state and college; I contacted not only this college, but the DOD, Department of Defense to get statistics of rape, sexual assault and so called date rape percentages from each.
An administrator from this well know college gave me the following statistics: 25% of freshman women reported some sort of sexual harassment, un-wanted sexual advances and pressured compliance to sexual consent. 18% of freshman women reported attempted sexual assault, while 15% admitted to having been raped.
The DOD reported that 8% of women entering basic training report or alleged to have been raped, Of this 8% 1/3rd of these women in training went further to state that they were propositioned by a Drill Sergeant to engage in sex for favoritism. Either case is unacceptable.
The assumption of Ms. Maxwell's statement, in light of the statistics I garnered in 1996, does indicate that the military is in fact safer, but here is the rub. No woman, regardless of age, status or walk in life should have to go through a rape. What I believe Ms. Maxwell is missing is what Sean and all Gun Rights activist are saying, is simple. Not Ms. Maxwell or anybody else should be able to deny any woman their right to protect themselves anyway they want. Either through self defense; I know a few women I wouldn't want to meet in a dark ally, or through the responsible use of a firearm. All U S citizens have the right to protect themselves, loved ones, each other and their property. What Ms. Maxwell is proposing is to take away the rights of law abiding citizens and make more victims for criminals to harm.
One last thought on Ms. Maxwell's stereotyping of men who rape. There may be a few humans that can change the way they think, act and feel. But not every man who is re-educated will transform into a good citizen because he is told he is loved and coddled. The father I mentioned before never changed his mind and I never talked with his daughter. The point I made to him though went to prove a small point. I had never had a stereo stolen from my vehicle until I moved to his state. By his logic I should be able to say that all people in his state were nothing but a bunch of thieves. After I said this to him he agreed that perhaps he was wrong in stereotyping everyone by the actions of a few. Like I have been told more than a thousand times, actions speak louder than words. What I tell my daughter is that each person must be judged on their individual actions.
Sorry for the long post
The left should just tell gun owners to stop using them to harm other people, problem solved-- now they can leave us alone. FINALLY!
I wonder if she told her rapist, "stop, don't rape me" evidently not since she was rapped.
That is so stupid! What person doesn't know rape is wrong?! If she doesn't want a gun, fine-- get a taser. My girlfriend got one from me on her way back to college last summer. Think I'm going to trust guys in a coed dorm around a beautiful young lady-- HELL NO. I don't care if it's a Catholic college or not, I don't care if there has ever been a rape case (reported) or not... HUMAN NATURE has a tendency toward evil and there is a first time for EVERYTHING, the love of my life will NOT be the first rape case. She is woman enough to defend herself and WANT every tool possible to do so. She flat out said she'd carry a gun if the school would allow it.
On the other side, my cousin has been mugged and wants everyone to be a victim evidently-- she is VERY anti-gun. Ironic part, she lives in Chicago BECAUSE of the gun restrictions... oops!
I honestly don't know why anti-gun people are resorting to such idiotic ideas-- is something wrong with mace and tasers? They are cheap, available, easy to use, and way more effective than urine, vomit, fainting, fists, pens, talking about your period, etc.
By her logic should then tell women to stop molesting children? I see a big list of females on the giant predator list at WND from time-to-time. Women also participated heartily in the Kinsey experiments that featured the molestation of a male child as young as 2 months old. But most were between 3 and 5 years of age. PBS did a piece on Kinsey just recently. So you see lefties two can play this game.
If Hannity had half a brain he would have asked her if she told her rapist to stop! If so, how did that work out for her?! This woman, if she was indeed raped, would never give such a flippant answer on national television! She is a disgrace for lying and a disgrace for pushing propaganda that is meant to harm!
