Rape Escape

  • Easy and very effective
  • Requires nothing but your body
  • Includes attack

Very useful to know, pass and share please.

Worth watching

I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this. 

I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head. 

Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away

So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out. 

I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot 

I want to add that in many self-defense classes, including the one I took, they teach you to fight back until your attacker is incapacitated.  That means that once you are in a position of attacking them, you attack until they are on the ground, either unconscious or hurt enough that they are unable to get back up.  This prevents them from overpowering you again and potentially hurting you more.  Do not worry about “hurting them too much”.  Their intention was to hurt you, so their own feelings are null and void.  Your only priority is to ensure your safety and making sure they cannot pursue or overpower you once you have freed yourself is the best way to do that.  Whether that means multiple kicks to the groin that knock them to the ground or a hard knee to the nose which temporarily blinds them, do what you need to make sure they cannot catch you again once you’ve freed yourself.

Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan

Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.

You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.

As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.

Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.

My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.

You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.

So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.

oppression is not a competition

thank you so much for this wording
