    Anti-Rape Device Must Be Banned ....

    Hi All,

    Sir K's recent posting about a million people with aids in the US, got me thinking about a recent developement in the fight against the massive amount of rapes leading to HIV / Aids in South Africa.

    Makes my eyes water just thinking about such a devise.

    What do you think ..... good idea or bad ?

    Regards
    Syxx

    Ouch...
    Well, that'll definitely stop the rapists alright.
    On the other hand, if I was a girl, I wouldn't wear something like that, what if it malfunctions and you know, cuts into...

    Hi

    Picture this ....

    Wifey going into town for the day, decides to put in her anti-rape "rat trap".
    After a day in town, buying shoes or whatever, she returns home to hubby.
    Wifey forgets to remove "rat trap".
    Amourous hubby jumps wifey and get "clamped" !!!!

    Ouch ....

    I actually can't think of a better way to ensure that more rapists kill their victims.

    Tough call.

    I don't buy the line that the usage of such device is eleviating the responsiblity of the gov't to crack down on rapes. That is like saying that self defense tools(mace, etc) are undermining the motivation for the police to protect the citizenry from assault. Protecting yourself isn't the same as being forced to accept the situation.

    On the other hand, I wonder if they will put the women in even more danger. If the assailant finds that such a device has been used he might feel further inclined to beat the women or even kill her.

    So this device is bad yet having everyone carry a gun to shoot the rapist is ok? Weird.

    Mutilation in defence bad. Execution in defence good. If you're gonna hurt him at all you have to kill him. Gotcha.

    The thing is that if a girl shoots her assailant; nothing happened, yet. If that "device" has to save her, the girl probably wouldn't walk away with at least some psychological "damage".

    I'm not saying girls should kill them in self-defence, but maybe shooting him in a "vulnerable" area will work.

    David.

    You don't get to make that call. And that wasn't my point. Why are people so upset about a mutilating defence device but not about killing the attacker?

    David, you're saying that killing someone doesn't leave any psychological damage? Hoo-boy, is that ever wrong.

    I don't agree with killing them either. They would suffer more through a life in prison.

    I'm not in favour of killing them, but that device simply doesn't prevent anything....

    David.

    EDIT: KF, I don't think a lot of the South-African rapists go to prison. (Might be a wrong impression I have of the police and judges over there..... dunno.)

    I can see a major flaw in this idea.......if I, In Canada, have heard about this....Then what are the odds that People in south Africa have heard about it too?, especially since their the ones using it!! Now if a rapist knows that his penis might be mutilated, He would probably check the vagina first. The article says that it is worn like a tampon, now being male i'm just guessing here,and aren't tampons are fairly easy to remove. IMO it would really only work for a short time till people caught on. Best to ban it because it would be easier to check/remove it from a dead/unconcious female.

    that is a very good point. Som countries do seem to accept shooting in defence (even if your life isnt in direct danger, such as rapings) but something like this is way of out line?
    Personally, i think neither is acceptable, but i guess women may have a different view.
