What level of violence is acceptable when fighting back against a criminal intent on harming me or mine?
The apparent answer? A condom which "features jagged rows of teeth-like hooks that latch onto an attacker's penis upon penetration."
Let me tell ya, my leftist Facebook sisters are all over this sucker. It does have a certain poetic justice to it, doesn't it? Guy rapes you, the hooks on the condom pre-inserted in your vagina latch on to his penis and it cannot be removed without the assistance of a doctor. "It hurts, he cannot pee and walk when it's on," according to the female doctor who invented it, and "if he tries to remove it, it will clasp tighter."
It's no coincidence that this is a South African invention. I've mentioned their problems with rape before. This device is nothing new; I recall first hearing about it a couple of years ago, and it wouldn't surprise me at all if it predates that.
So, what's the problem?
There are two I can think of offhand:
1) For this device to work, the violation must take place. If you have a barbed insert in your vagina, in order for a man's penis to be trapped in it, his penis has to enter your vagina. This device does NOT prevent rape. It's not reasonable or realistic to believe that this will act as a deterrent in a country where three quarters of the women will be raped over the course of their lives, where infants are being raped because of the false belief that having sex with a virgin will cure AIDS. This device is yet further evidence of the typical leftist belief that it is immoral to prevent yourself from being raped. I'm betting even a "puny" .22 round in center body mass would be at least as painful as a barbed condom, and the trail of blood would lead police to your attacker (assuming, of course, that you weren't able to merely show them a body). But guns are bad news 'cause they can kill people. That this is sorta the point seems to pass them by.
2) This also assumes that rape is not a violent crime. Should your attacker stick his dick inside you and find it trapped in this device, he's going to scream and run for a doctor. And not beat the living fuck out of you/kill you for hurting him first. C'mon, folks, there are a lot of female murder victims out there who were raped first. There are a lot of male killers who have used the excuse that they "just got carried away"; they didn't really mean to do it. Somehow I don't think that "Well, at least my murderer's dick hurts" would really console anyone in the afterlife. But maybe I really don't understand leftist women.
