Will You Be Surprised At What Country This Invention Comes From?

02/02/18 U.K. Metro:
A woman in Germany has created anti-rape shorts, which began as a personal project after she was attacked while out running. There are two types of Safe Shorts – underpants and running shorts – and both are made from slash and tear-resistant material, and have a lock as well as an alarm. The shorts are fastened with a cut-resistant cord, which is attached to the waist or pelvic area (depending on which style you have), and then secured with a clip that has a coded padlock. You can access this padlock in seconds with the code, but if someone else tampers with it, a 140 decibel alarm sounds.

I admire her initiative, but why not solve the underlying problem?

Imagine how easy it would be if citizens had the right to secure their own countries against invasion, and had the right to use lethal force to stop any such action (including rape), and had men who still thought that it was right, good and proper to defend women and leave such brute beasts dead in the street.

The past is another country; they do things differently there.

Sorry to be crude, but let's face it--they better make one for their mouths as well because the rapists might resort to forced fellatio....

Agreed, the insanity knows no bounds!

Because cutting throats is frowned upon in Germany.
