Ever since we were little kids, my parents have taught all of us kids self-defense and how to use weapons properly, and as we got older we practiced a lot with each other and got really good at it. My 2 younger sisters and Mom took tai kwon do classes for a while, and my brother was in the Marines and taught a lot of stuff to us girls. We have never had to use any of it, and I pray we never do, but we do know how to use our own bodies as weapons if that's all we have. Yes, it's not fair that our bodies are both succeptible to rape ANd weaker than a comparative sized man's body, but there's a LOT of fighting will in us, and if you know how to use it, that can tip the scales in your favor.rhoda_bruce said:Well, if someone has a rather horrible period, there are treatments that could be implimented, with the desired effects. There are lots of female herbs. I placed an order of $137, mainly in seeds from Baker Creek, which are largely for herbal remedies. I ordered them to suit my families needs, but I haven't included any herbs that would qualify in this area.....like I said, I put the contraceptive herbs outta my mind.
What would I do if someone decides to victimize me.......I hope he'd show up on a day I'm slaughtering, because I don't think I look like the perfect victim on those days. A total meltdown would probably indicate that every man for himself and I'm not sure how high on the priority list rape would be, so I think I'd just have to deal with it. But as far as what to do with a child conceived in such a mannor.....pretty sure his/her little butt would be all mine, cuz I won't say what kinda revenge I think I'd take.....or what kinda revenge the men in my family would be likely to take.
But you are right....the possibility of an attack is always a possibility. Personally, I think all women should take some kinda self-defense class and have some emergency back-up plans, involving weapon use or escape routes and such. Bad enough to have been put into a body that is naturally weaker than our counterparts, without being left completely at someone's mercy. A while back, I was taking a Body Combat class at our local gym, which I considered an important SS skill. What good is it to be able to feed my family and preserve food and keep my house warm if a criminal can just come in here and help himself. Unfortunately I had to fork over a vehicle to my oldest for educational purposes and now that I've remedied that problem with transportation, I haven't started working out again. Self-defense should be ever on our minds. You just never know when or how danger might present itself.
I dont walk around scared of being raped, but I DO pay attention to people and things going on around me when I'm in town. In a societal collapse, I dont know if the incidence of rape would indeed rise, but when there is civil unrest in places like Africa, rape skyrockets- of course, rape is not an actual "crime" in most societies there... if someone raped one of us girls, they'd be hunted down like the beast they are.... so there IS a deterrent just in the fact that we DO have men around and in our families, and it IS considered a crime in our society.
