Zerlina Maxwell; women don’t need guns to prevent rape

| March 6, 2013

Zerlina Maxwell

Zerlina Maxwell, a Democrat strategist, told some folks on Fox news last night that women don’t need guns to prevent rape – they only need to convince men not to rape them. From the Washington Times;

“I want women to be able to protect themselves, yes, but I want women to not be in this situation,” she said.

“We can prevent rape by telling men not to commit it,” she repeated. “If firearms were the answer, then the military would be the safest place for women and it’s not.”

Again with the “military all carrying guns” bullshit. For one thing, I’m not buying this shit about all of the men in the military are preying on women. I think these anti-war idiots are using this to demean the troops because we’re never supposed to question rape. They tried to call the troops baby-killers, they’ve tried the “crazy vet” thing that worked so well in the 70s and 80s and neither of those worked, so now they’re trying to make everyone in uniform out to be a rapist. I’m not saying rape doesn’t happen, but it doesn’t happen as often as we’re led to believe.

And if talking men into not raping would work so well, why haven’t the laws and all of the Law & Order: SVU episodes worked?

Yeah, I think there’s a war against women and it’s coming from the ideological Left who don’t mind that women might die because of their opposition to guns.

    Why don’t we outlaw rape while we’re at it? * OOPS*, that’s already been done. What’s next, are the libs going to suggest that women beat off their attacker?

  2. JonnyD1371 says:

    I actually watched this blubbering idiot and her insane reasoning. Her reason for preventing CCW from being allowed was “women should have the freedome of choice. Women should be free to not have to shoot their attacker.” She goes on to say that she was attacked by someone she knew, and if CCW were legalized, she would have had to shoot him and she didn’t want to.

    @23 Lucky–What do you call a Thai ladyboy?

    Yon’s latest love interest.

    @52 – It comes as no surprise to me that she’s a democratic strategist. Her rationale and logic makes perfect sense to those in her circles.

    I just hope she’ll never have to put that logic and rationale to the test, for her sake.

    USMCE8Ret: given the subject material, that was a particularly appropriate remark at the end of your last comment. (smile)

  7. UpNorth says:

    @52, so, in the minds of lib’ruls, preventing someone from carrying is giving them “the freedom of choice”? Liberalism most definitely is a mental disease.

    Nobel Peace Prize – “Erradication of Woman Rape in the USA By Telling Men Not To Commit It”.

    And the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize for Asshattery and Dumbfu*kionistism goes to …

    Absolutely. There is no need for recourse to violence. Just let the rapist know that he is making a grievous mistake, that when you said no, you meant no. If that doesn’t work, tell him that you’re a Democrat, that you really want to help him, and that you understand that it is society and the economic system that’s to blame, not him. Offer him a nice cup of tea. If he says yes, when you go to the drawer to get a spoon, pull out a knofe and plunge it into his throat. One of these approaches is bound to work.

    “If firearms were the answer, then the military would be the safest place for women and it’s not.”
    Is there an assumption that our military is always packing heat? I’ve heard numerous comments that seem to indicate that belief. It’s not like we let people take those scary black rifles home at night. Even transporting them from the armory to the range doesn’t generally involve having any rounds handy.

    I went through the Army’s Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention (SHARP) courses last year. One thing that stood out to me is the number of sexual assaults our instructor (a retired MSG who helped set up the SHARP program at DA) shared. Notice I typed “sexual assault”, not “rape”. In my eleven years of service, I’ve only heard of a handful of instances of actual rape, and almost all of those on the news. Granted, as an 11B I haven’t worked with a lot of women, but our instructor told us there is a surprising number of male on male assaults. I haven’t heard of any in my units, but hey, he’s the SME.

    As a less-than-sensitive male I am of the opinion that the Army’s definition of “sexual assault” can be over-reaching. As a certified SHARP professional and an NCO, however, I would treat anyone that meets the definition of a victim compassionately and without judgement. Our instructor shared one story of a female who exchanged fellatio for a ride to Salsa Night in Iraq. After a few weeks, the driver got his buddies involved, then decided to start charging them. The female found out about the money, reported her “assault” to the SARC, and the male Soldiers were investigated for sexual assault. Never mind that it was entirely consensual until she found out about the money, she stopped consenting when she didn’t get a cut and they may have lost their careers because of it.

    A lot of sex-based crimes and assaults that occur in the military are committed by people in positions of power. Drill instructors (e.g. Lackland AFB last year), senior NCOs (the SGM that got busted to SPC years ago for violating General Order 1B after taking pictures of unclothed female SSGs), and even senior officers (the charges against BG Sinclair).

    In short, we (the Armed Forces) take a zero-tolerance stance on the matter, so of course the number of cases is going to be higher. Since my training I’ve been keeping my eyes and ears open for any signs of harassment or bad circumstances that could lead to assault (getting a female excessively drunk, or trying to get some “alone time” with a girl who is unable to consent). Besides the jokes that the Army would take seriously in a heartbeat–male-on-male “good game” and such–I’ve seen nothing alarming in my unit.

    Sorry for the rant. SHARP opened my eyes as to how big a problem SA is in the Army and to the zero-tolerance policy, but it also gave me an idea of how far that “zero-tolerance” reaches.

    As for telling men not to commit rape, that goes against everything I’ve ever been taught. Most rapists are looking to feel empowered, not just trying to “get some”. A woman telling the average rapist that he doesn’t “need to do this” or that “rape is wrong” is probably going to accomplish little insofar as protecting herself. If anything, the rapist will feel more empowered having the “helpless little woman begging” him to stop.

    Also, most victims know their attacker. If a co-worker, friend, acquaintance, or family member is about to rape you, I doubt that saying anything will stop them quicker than a well-placed shot to the chest. Maybe, just maybe, you can get across to them verbally, but I’d rather live my life unviolated knowing that I took a rapist off the streets–no matter how close that person may have been to me. Once the trust is breached and I’m in a compromising position it’s game on. Unless it’s not unwelcome. 🙂

    It is amazing all you complete fucking morons found each other.

  13. NHSparky says:

    Once again, the trolls can’t just fucking leave well enough alone.

    It’s amazing they let you use the Internet at “the home” ya fucking fucktard.

    It’s amazing that your brain generates enough power to tell your heart to breathe, your lungs to breathe, and your fingers to slap up and down on a keyboard like a retarded fucking howler monkey.

    It’s amazing that despite this reply, you won’t have learned a fucking thing.

    It’s amazing that you’ll likely be tempted to reply, because let’s face it, assholes always have to get in the last word.

    @62 I hope you are happy. You have forced your village to go in search of you, their one and only idiot.

  15. USMCE8Ret says:

    @65 – What she said and what the research says are two different things. She still sounded stupid without backing her assertions, so I suspect that’s where the disconnect is.

  16. Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening

    give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!
