People are seriously getting angry about the anti-date rape drug nail polish.
Oh my god.
"It’s perpetuating rape culture!"
"Why are we placing the responsibility for preventing sexual assault on young women?"
"Why aren’t they using these resources to get to the root of the problem?? Just taking preventative measures isn’t going to solve the problem!!!!"
"We should just teach men not to rape!"
I’m sorry, rape is rarely committed by people who just “don’t know any better”.
It’s committed by horrible evil people.
Telling a predator “rapist no raping” like this is Dora the Explorer isn’t going to protect you.
You know what will?
MAGIC NAIL POLISH THAT DETECTS DATE RAPE DRUGS.
Who else is going to take responsibility for my safety if not me?
Someone please tell me how we’re going to eliminate rape from our society. Please do.
Yes, it sucks that we live in a world where we need anti-date rape nail polish. But this is reality, and reality sucks.
If there are people who want to live in a delusion and not protect themselves, fine.
But don’t ruin it for those of us who want to be armed against the evils in the world.
