I can hardly wait until these are readily available throughout the US. Who among us women would not put down the $2 for peace of mind. I would add an enhancement where the device sent crippling electrodes through the rapist's peen so as to disable him from retaliation once he realized he put his dirty worm where it doesn't belong.

This entire thread is based off of misinformation.

Hammertime's entire post was non-sensical in the first place.

I responded by challenging him on what he wrote. Does anyone who is being assaulted need a stronger incentive to fight back and defend themselves at the moment of the attack?

If there is - and that is what you think - I would really like to know what those incentives might be.
Hammertime's post had nothing to do with fighting back.

Hammertime's post wasn't nonsensical.

You didn't challenge him on what he wrote.

You defended the proposition that women who don't want to be sexually assaulted are safer if they are married, and therefore their desire not to be sexually assaulted is an incentive to marry.

It's a pathetic proposition. I don't blame you for wanting to disavow it.

Or a rather unusual way to promote marriage.

Sort of like Christianity using fire and brimstone to attract terrified-but-obedient followers.

I am not "disavowing" anything - just because you misinterpreted what I said does not make your interpretation so.

Hammertime actually asked if sexual assault should be legalized - so that women have more incentives to defend themselves.

How is such a question not nonsensical?

I know what was in my mind when I responded to the question - your opinion is irrelevant.

Do you really think that a woman needs further incentive then self-preservation to physcially defend themselves if they are being assaulted?

Yes, Hammertime actually asked that question, because if sexual assault on single and divorces women were legalized, there'd be even more incentive for women to MARRY. Perhaps you lost your train of thought? Unable to keep up with the thread topic. Hammertime was being sarcastic. Not nonsensical. Sarcastic.

And many women don't fight their rapists. Because being raped is better than being killed. And that doesn't make the rape victim responsible, either.

Please explain this. Do you think that a woman is defending herself from being assaulted by being married?

Do you actually think that a potential rapist is going to see a wedding ring as a deterrent?
