Fun with infantilization!

Barf:

"It's a girl power kind of thing," Shafman says. "You're kind of making a statement: I know I'm a woman. I know I'm the most sought after victim in regards to sexual assault, sexual abuse. So please stay away from me. If in the event you do come after me, I'm going to use my pink Taser to put you on the ground."


"Most sought after victim in regards to sexual assault"? Wow, there's a superlative for the yearbook.

Also worth noting is the potential victims' very polite regard for their potential attackers' physical well-being (ie "please stay away from me!"):

Amnesty International, an activist group, frowns on the C2 and any attempt to spread the use of stun guns.

Shafman has a quick answer for Amnesty International. If she had a choice of getting shocked or being attacked with something else, "I'd much rather be assaulted by a Taser."


Yes, ladies, even when you're trying to defend yourself from deranged rapists, it's important not to do anything that could really hurt them. Just zap them with your cute pink Taser and then run away — slowly, I guess — in your stilettos. Girl power!

Ugh, fuck. I'm going back to bed.

what's funny is that i misread the CA article - instead of "taser parties" i read "taser panties" and thought hmmmmm...what an idea

if you're concerned about assault in the middle of the night, i'd suggest either (or both) a dog or a home security system. or a baseball bat...speaking from personal experience.

I got Best Personality.

Taser panties would be a great idea, for indoor and outdoor use.
