This is such bullshit, making it seem as though rape is a purely man-on-woman problem. I am disgusted by it.
The nail polish is a good idea that empowers the wearer; it doesn’t “blame the victim” or any of that shit.
Further, there are ALWAYS going to be shitty ass people in this world and while we can “teach men not to rape” (despite the fact that — surprise! — rapists are not exclusively men) the truth is that assholes won’t give a shit what you teach them; they’ll rape anyway.
So yeah, arm yourself with this nail polish and fucking enjoy it. Empower yourself if you feel it is necessary. Go crazy. But DON’T take is as a cue to go all angry-feminist and demean not only the people who made it, but also those who wear it, as well as good men everywhere.
This is something to prevent people from unknowingly ingesting drinks spiked with roofies and these people are angry?! They are angry that there’s something out there people can use to further reduce the possibility of being attacked?!
