The third piece is brillliant, Brilliant I say! And should be read by every male college freshman. And then read again when they're sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Heck, start 'em reading it when they're high school freshmen, so maybe they might have learned the lesson before they get to college.

Because the problem is not the women out walking alone, it's the men who attack them.

thank you -- i love all three of these articles and they definitely go together.

As for the third, it's funny, innit, how silly it looks when you turn it around? maybe 'cause it's silly to blame women? ((Nah, that can't be it.))

Thanks. That first one makes me think on how I was raised, and how I want to raise my daughter differently. It took me years to embrace the inner bitch and learn to speak out in many ways.

Three excellent links! Thank you!
The first points out all the stuff I overcame when I started self-defense training. I am different now.If someone is going to rape me, I must be either unconscious or dead, because I will fight with everything I have in me. Call me anything you like; my body is absolutely my own.

Thanks for posting all of these links and some of your past postings. The first one in particular is very timely since in the past year there has been a guy at work who did just this sort of thing and only speaking with my supervisor to get him to stop talking me has worked. It is great to see someone spell out what has happened and will hopefully help me out if it ever happens again.
