OK, so we’ve learned from our intellectual and moral superiors in government that college-age women shouldn’t be able to carry concealed weapons on campus; after all, in the midst of a hysterical fit, there’s a chance they might “pop a round” at that rapist they suspect is about to attack them despite the posted “safe zone” signs. How should women fight back, then, without actually hurting anyone? Jesse Byrnes, managing editor of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs student newspaper, shared some tips from the school.

This doesn’t sound like the “passive resistance” sort of crowd. Plenty of strong women are actively resisting the effort to disarm them.

Any other tips, Twitter?

https://twitter.com/FrankMDavisJR/status/303655515513303042

Those are called “assault tampons” and Mitt Romney wanted them banned, remember?

Thanks, Twitter, for providing the sort of education we need before choosing a university.

Update:

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs updated its list of rape prevention tips with “context.”

But so far, UCCS is standing by its advice for women to make themselves less “attractive” victims”  by soiling themselves.

Editor’s note: The headline for this post has been corrected to read “scream” rather than “whistle,” which does not appear in UCCS’s list of tips. The complete list of UCCS tips can be found here.

        The lack of self-dignity is not only among women.

Compare this to the older days when even criminals dressed with class and dignity. I think that is more of a generational issue.

    This is literally the opposite of what women should do when attacked by a rapist. Absolutely life-threatening advice. Rapists are predators. They operate off of irrational thoughts and use violent methods to experience feelings of power and control. You can’t talk people like that down. For example, a woman tells a rapist she’s menstruating, a rapist is likely to believe she’s trying to make a fool of him, really lose it, and get violent. Happens all the time. Women end up savagely beaten by attackers who want to teach them a lesson that only he thinks needs to be taught. Passive resistance? When the lion realizes the baby antelope is scared of him, does he back off to go eat an active one? Guess how you average rapist is going to interpret vomiting? When violence goes down, you have to act. Guns are great self-defense weapons not only of their size, ease of use, and effectiveness, but because they attract attention, which is bug spray to predatory criminals. If women can’t carry guns(and they should, no matter what the law or campus policy says), they should carry knives, batons, or any kind of weapons. If they are attacked, they should scream like Xena: Warrior Princess and attack the eyes, throat, testicles, then run like hell, and do everything short of murder to attract attention. Someone’s little angel is going to see these guidelines, and pay very, very dearly for taking them to heart.

    • Kevin Krom

  • sqeptiq

    Really stupid advice, no doubt. I’m all for everyone not in prison or a psych ward being able to have guns and carry them, but let’s keep it real. Very few collegiates care to carry them, so there needs to be practical advice beyond just “pack heat!” Travelling in groups helps, as does staying in well-lit areas. Free night escort programs help a lot as well.

    • NRPax

      “Pack heat” should be the first and last part of that advice though. If you and your group are unarmed and outnumbered or if your night escort gets disabled, it’s better to have a ballistic counterargument ready to explain your point of view.

      • sqeptiq

        Pack heat if you want, but campus rape isn’t about gangs prowling the streets or about abduction in the street anyway. It’s overwhelmingly about situations where an acquaintance, himself a college student, gets a girl alone in a room or an apartment. For a girl to stick close to a friend or group readily avoids that sort of thing. In any case, I welcome the idea of rapists being shot to death; it’s just that that the idea of that happening in the street is pretty fanciful, because that is overwhelmingly not the nature of campus rape.

        • NRPax

          So what would you tell someone like Amanda Collins, who was raped by a stranger on campus in a parking garage?

          The situation is unimportant; that person ceases to be a friend the moment they attempt the crime. And even if they are in their apartment or dorm room, they should still have the ability to kill their attacker. And the rest of the advice that was given was indefensible. Anyone taking that course should ask for a refund even though it was free.

          • sqeptiq

            Amanda can carry a gun and kill guys who threaten her. That’s fine by me. It’s just that stranger rape and street rape are comparatively rare on college campuses. It’s great to keep a gun or guns at home, loaded and in reach to kill someone if necessary. No doubt about that.

  • Harry A

    #LiberalTipsToAvoidRape has to be the DUMBEST trend of 2013. as someone who knows a victim i can tell you that this trend is very insensitive. What the college did was stupid, but joining it with dumb advice, making light of the situation is even more stupid. This even goes out to Michelle who I was disgusted with, joined in with “offer them a joint”. Just because others are doing stupid things does not mean you must follow !

    • Matthew Morris

      So to McFly, Libs saying women should scream and hope he runs is fine, pointing out the stupidity of it is ‘insensitive’. As someone who ‘knows some victims’ most all of them would rather have had a gun than a whistle.

      • Harry A

        i fully agree, im just saying tips like “enter a rape free zone and call from your obamaphone”, thats not needed man. we are always doing more harm to ourselves with tips like this feeding into the narrative of the “war on women”. Rape jokes, which is what much of these are, are never funny.

    • Guest

      Let me tell you something – I was a victim – attacked at 19. My attacker demanded that I pee on him – it was his “thing”. So this hashtag is not offensive, it needs to be be out there to counter idiotic liberal ideas that tell me that I would have been better off had I used a bodily function against an attacker that got off on such. I wish I would have had a knife or gun to better protect myself that day. It would have save me years of anxiety, nightmares, and relationship issues. So tell me again that you think it’s dumb when you are not a VICTIM of such an attack.

      • Harry A

        the person i know who was attacked was carrying a gun in her purse, it wasnt much help to her though when he attacked her from behind and threw her purse away. this hashtag is offensive, its MORE offensive than what the college did. you don’t respond to stupid with more stupid im sorry. this is certainly not a situation where you make light of it to prove a point. Im sorry that you were attacked, but that doesnt mean that the feelings of the person i know are irrelevant.

        • Matthew Morris

          So let me see if I have this straight. Because her packing failed *once* no one should do it? “Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.”

          • Harry A

            no im in favour of guns. my whole point was that the hashtag was offensive. some of them said things like #lIberaltipstoavoidrape look like michelle obama, i just dont think rape jokes help make the point. they make the rights position look equally as stupid as salazar.

            i only replied to that post with the gun information because “Guest” suggested that having a gun would have stopped it, and that i didnt have a point because i wasnt a victim myself. all im saying is that rape jokes wasnt the way to reply .

    • http://twitter.com/reese_c_cup Reese Ccup

      As a survivor of rape…I say…have at it…show how completely asinine these so called “educated liberal” ideas being put out there as a means to deal with a potential attack. Yes..and if “warped humor” is a way that rattles cages, so be it. I’m willing to talk about the taboo because it happened to me and I don’t want it to happen to another.

It’s about POWER and ASSAULT and it’s dangerous to suggest a woman LIE about something when she has no power and the sadistic rapist who is already aggressive will then be even MORE ticked off when he finds she is lying! The U of C CS thinks it’s worth the risk of making your attacker mad. Unbelievable! This is simply astounding! Where are the parents of the women who attend this university? They should be showing up in droves at that Public Safety Office…unbelievable.

    You guys do realize that a school doesn’t want to deal with the lawsuits inevitable when someone is killed on campus, and it’s her word against a dead kid’s that she was in danger, right?

    • AreOweBeeEyeN

      Sure do and the criminals realize it too.

  • http://www.lernabit.com Aaron Wright

    Most self defense classes teach you NOT to carry a lethal weapon unless you really know how to use it. If you are not trained in proper use, there is a risk that the attacker will get it and escalate the situation.

    I am all for conceal carry, but people need to know HOW to use the weapon, otherwise it does more harm than good.

  • Proud2bfromtheUSA

    If a woman pees on a rapist wont he beat her in the face with his fist. Maybe if he does she can vomit on him too perhaps he might not shove her head against the sidewalk too much for that. /People need to understand rape is not about sex it is about power and control if a woman shows any weakness or passive aggression she will more than likely be physically assaulted. If however she looks to be powerful enough to inflict serious injury IE has a gun or knife the potential rapist is less likely to even approach her. Most men who rape have serious confidence issues IE they are cowards if a woman is self assured and looks as though they might be able to fight back they make themselves less of a target.

    unbelievable. i used to want to visit the state in which i was born, now…notsomuch. how dare they try to remove women’s best chance against a violent, power play, such as rape?! the screams and vomit and urination will only excite the attacker more, knowing he has terrified and forced the ‘helpless victim’ into submission and humiliation. bullies and criminals do NOT care if you are on your period,..more power for them to hurt you. liberals, PLEASE, feel free to send your daughters and grand daughters and self to ‘safe zones’ and ‘gun free zones’ with no protection…just take a condom with you, and ask if you can pull it out first. personally, i recommend shooting lessons over acting lessons of ‘pee or vomit on cue’.

  • dawn

    besides the horror and lasting effects of a rape, think about what the dems are sentences women to in the future… don’t forget the STD’s or even worse…and under the new obamacare, long-term, chronic care is NOT covered, if there is no cure. …that is ALL on the vicitm/future patient…not to mention the therapy, which would lead to them NOT being allowed to own a firearm, for they will be ‘mentally unstable’. it appears that the gov’t is catch 22’ing women…back to the caves with us.

This is one case where taking something out of context created a firestorm of resentment and criticism for a public institution. #KnowYourAudience

Go for the vitals, fingers in the eyes, a forceful jab of knuckles to the throat, forceful jab with the palm of opened hand trying to shove their nose through their skull, Go for the testicles using your knee, foot, forearm, fist or elbow !
