WHAT YOU DON`T KNOW CAN HURT YOU ~ AN ARTICLE FOR WOMEN
NOW YOU KNOW
As an American I`m sure you have noticed the big issue over crime in the United States. But have you ever thought about just Alaska? Or just rape? Alaska is one of the leading states in the amount of rape per every 100,000 people as demonstrated by the chart above. Just think “…one out of every five adult women, or nearly 44,000 adult women in Alaska, has been the victim of forcible rape sometime in her lifetime." Causing Alaska to have nearly three times as high of the amount of rape then the average of the whole United States.
Now don't laugh! This pair of metal underpants was seemingly revolutionary in the development of rape prevention and keeping women pure for their partner. But we are no longer in the medieval period would this still work? No! You can`t tell me that you would want to wear this oversized pair of metal underwear around your waist 24/7. And what about that dreaded time of the month? Being locked up in this undergarment while you bleed, it can't be easy to change your pad or tampon! Just imagine you can't get your tampon back out or the string suddenly breaks! You don't have the key so you`ll just have to deal with the consequence, TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome). This illness is caused by a bacterial toxin and in some cases can be DEADLY. Plus it will be much more difficult to keep yourself clean and you could develop vaginal infections such as yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, or trichomoniasis. So does this device seem so brilliant now? I didn't think so. And plus not only could it kill you but it also takes away your right as a women to say no and defend for yourself! Instead you`ll be locked up your whole life until whomever holds the key decides to free you, making you completely under their control! NOT COOL!
RAPE IS A PROBLEM, OPEN YOUR EYES AND LOOK
