FemDefence – A Protection Against Rape

This post has been viewed 8923 times since Sunday 6 November 2005 @ 9:20 pm

Come across Liz‘s post regarding a young kid was trying to molest her few days ago and I really think girls should take extra care of yourselves regardless daytime or late at night. Be extra cautious walking alone or even in a group, don’t ever say you walk in a pair and you are safe, think what if they are 5 in a group !

I am not here to give you lesson, so I better show you something interesting yet can protect the girls. Coincidentally, I come across an interesting website on the same day I read Liz’s blog entry. The website is about a small device called FemDefence that it’s believed to be able to protect girls against rape !

FemDefence

Quoted:
The project FemDefence is an attempt to contribute to the debate on men’s sexual violence against women in society, using the esthetics of design, and the semiotics of marketing.


FemDefence is a tiny device similar to a tampon which girls can carries the protective device in her vagina. In FemDefence there is a sharp pin which has a penetrating effect on the perpetrator’s penis in the event of a rape. I think the device is quite useful and practical though it’s still an on-going project. To me, the message to be conceived to the public that “Women can protect themselves, don’t bully them !” is rather stronger than the practicality of the device.

There is a video clip in the website illustrating some scenarios FemDefence can be applied so effectively. (18SX, ok!)

I really hope FemDefence to come into the market as soon as possible and create the awareness to all people including bad guys with evil intents !

    I don’t think women will use it as they have to wear it all the time and it wont be comfortable. What about pepper spray and tazer? I think women should learn something practical like dim mak self defense.

    What if some women use this stuff to bully or torture men? :P

    Of course not all the time, only when necessary like illustrated in the video clip.

    If women use it to torture men, sue them ! :D

    I think this one is even better.

    It contains sharp barb that can only be removed by surgery…. so you can put “it” into the device, but cannot take it out…

    Very evil! :D

    “Defence” from rape should come from changing attitudes in society towards sexual abuse, education and a more effective and supportive prosecution system for victims. These kinds of devices portray rape as a natural phenomenon in society that will always exist and shifts the responsibility to women to protect themselves and completely away from the attacker in the first place. Its a stupid idea.

    what if your girl friend puts this on while she was alone and forgets to take it out?

    Obviously this isn’t “protection” against rape, because the rape has to be actually taking place for the mechanism to work. It would obviously be preferable for a person (PERSON, not necessarily a biologically born woman) to be free from that threat or able to extricate themselves from a threatening situation before this device needs to be used.
