Yes! I'm tired of being raped, but how will sticking this up my butt keep the politicians, and corporations at bay?
On topic: I can see ups, and downs to this. I can see it being a short term deterent, and I realize that S. Africa is a much different place than
Europe, and America. It might have some merit in some instances.
I kinda see it like personal soft body armor, or carrying concealed. It is uncomfortable to do it all the time. I am not a woman, but it doesn't
take a lot of imagination to realize that gizmo can't be horribly comfortable to the wearer. Just like a kevlar vest is hot, and clingy, Sure it
protects you, but you aren't going to wear it 24/7, no way, no how. So now you have to factor in when, and where is it most likely that I will need
to wear my peckerwrecker?
Also scumbags are adaptive too unfortunately. If these gizmos get popular, and are in mainstream use it won't take the vultures long to learn to
"test the water" before diving in. It sounds like a great idea on paper, but if you think about the real world applications, and limitations a bit,
it seems more of a scare tactic, or a placebo for women who feel threatened, and powerless. I think some self defense training, a decent weapon, and a
survivor attitude would go much, much farther.
I also agree that in a multiple attacker scenario this gizmo would get a victim killed, or beaten much more severely. Scumbags feel it is their right
to violate you, and how dare you take measures to defend yourself. Of course the answer to that argument is best punctuated with a 9mm period IMHO.
