“If I was single and dating in college and my boyfriend tried something that I said no to, and started sexually assaulting me, I would use my firearm to defend myself,” Students for Concealed Carry co-president Rebeka Hargrove said.
^In the past, I would just think ‘ok, good for you – stop him’.
But now that radical third-wave feminism permeates a lot of campuses almost everything is a “sexual assault” now. I really have no idea how she – or anyone, really – defines sexual assault anymore. In some radical feminists’ eyes, a man looking at woman “the wrong way” constitutes “assault”. Is it ok to shoot him? How much more tragic could the UVa rape ‘hoax’ have been? The “rape culture” moral panic is getting out of hand. The overwhelming majority of people – even young people – are decent, rational people … that even includes those with penises.
I firmly believe in people being able to defend themselves. I’ve got no problem with conceal-carry – not sure how all the laws work in each state. But I agree w/ paki that the line of reasoning used by some is pretty unsound – even if we may be coming at that conclusion from different angles.
