New anti-gun idea to avoid arming women: Teach men not to rape

posted at 10:41 am on March 6, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via Katie Pavlich, I’ll go one better: Let’s teach people not to commit crimes of any sort. Then, not only can we dispense with guns, we can dispense with police. And then we can take those billions we’re saving on LE and use them for programs overseas to teach them how not to commit crimes too. The White House should add that to their nonproliferation ambitions. Global Zero — not just nukes but all bad things.

In fairness to Maxwell, I don’t think she’s touting anti-rape education as a complete alternative to arming women, she’s touting it in order to duck Hannity’s question about why any woman should be left defenseless in the name of advancing the Democrats’ gun-control agenda. As we saw yesterday, that subject is vexing enough for a committed gun-grabber that it’s apt to induce outright idiocy in its proponents. To believe that educating boys about what constitutes consent might eliminate rape entirely is like believing that anti-smoking and anti-drunk-driving campaigns will eliminate emphysema and alcohol-fueled car crashes. They might reduce the risk but they’ll never get rid of it completely. And rape, needless to say, is different from vehicular homicide caused by DUI insofar as it’s a crime of intent. There are, in fact, plenty of degenerates who understand the boundaries of consent perfectly well and will cross them regardless. It’s for those special individuals that handguns capable of fitting in purses are made.

Speaking of which, as your second clip below, watch Amanda Collins on Fox & Friends this morning. She’s the rape victim who was treated to that dopey lecture yesterday by a Colorado Dem about the futility of guns in preventing an attack if tae kwan do has already failed. Note her point about risk reduction.

To believe that educating boys about what constitutes consent might eliminate rape entirely is like believing that anti-smoking and anti-drunk-driving campaigns will eliminate emphysema and alcohol-fueled car crashes.

There is a pretty big difference between teaching children (why just boys?) about what constitutes consent and instances of rape where a woman might need to use a firearm.

This is the kind of muddled nonsense when the left gets in charge and starts trying to justify their anti-Constitutional mantras. We have stupid women talking about educating our way out of needing the Second Amendment, we have six-year-olds being suspended for pop tarts, and we have idiot professors talking about women need only pee on themselves to avoid being raped.

When will this insanity stop?

Happy Nomad on March 6, 2013 at 10:57 AM

Well, if that idea is a good idea, why don’t we just teach women to never say no to a man that wants to have sex with her.

No rape, amiright?

Ok. Maybe too radical.

And once they are proclaimed no longer stupid, then, well, they would no longer be liberals.

I think that’s a win-win for those who would make their life’s work dedicated to such an arduous task.

Tae Kwan Do is a point-sparring sport art, not a self defense art. It will do about as much to prevent a rape as playing softball or soccer. Sorry, but there are better MA systems to practice for self defense.

I believe that in Amanda’s case the bad guy had a gun to her head, and she was unarmed. We train for that, but it’s a worst case scenario. I’m very glad that she survived. She’s lucky to be alive. Even if the bad guy had been unarmed, TKD is not good for self defense. My daughter and I train in Kajukenbo. Google it.

She should have had her firearm as an option. I hate stupid gun laws that only protect violent criminals.

If you don’t think people should tell women what to do, why are you okay with someone telling women that they cannot be armed to defend themselves?

Chief of which is the “power to the people” lie. The Left is the greatest dehumanizing and disempowering political movement in history.

Whenever I am tempted to agree that it will only get more comically (in a gallows’ sense) and disastrously wrong, I remind myself that England was unbelievably hedonistic and outrageous (just take a cursory look at the flamboyant behaviours of George, Prince of Wales, and his wife, Caroline of Brunswick, during the late 18th-early 19th centuries or Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, and her niece, Lady Caroline Lamb, for some examples of the period) and then the pendulum swung wildly in the opposite direction during the Victoria Era.

It is almost as if society convulses on its excesses and pulls itself back from the brink. Of course, in many cases, this involves a dictator, which is what happened in France following the Revolution which was a period marked not only by incredible violence, but extreme moral absurdity.
