Review: Common sense advice to women about rape

By Alexander Baron     Oct 3, 2013 in Crime
This eighteen and a half minute video about how to avoid being raped may have been made by a man, but at least he knows what he is talking about.
The horrific case in India last December which saw a young woman raped literally to death has led to understandable outrage, and to the hijacking of an important social issue by the usual suspects who are less concerned with promoting the rights of women than with battering men over their heads.
This video speaks for itself; it was made by an English YouTuber who delights in debunking feminist nonsense such as that spouted by self-styled pop culture critic Anita Sarkeesian. Obviously it will offend those whose raison d'ĂȘtre is to be offended, but it is difficult to argue with his cold logic. Telling women to avoid situations in which they may be susceptible to predators is not condoning rape anymore than telling people to put locks on their doors condones burglary.
Although this video was inspired partly by the Delhi gang-rape murder, it is really directed towards Western feminists like Anita and their ludicrous rants against the mythical patriarchy. Unlike Indian women they have nothing to complain about, and one suspects neither will the latter if the death sentences on the four gang rapists are carried out.
The video was uploaded only September 25, but it has already attracted over sixty-four thousand views, and surprisingly few comments.
