Introducing Rape-Preventing Panties (With Locks)

Yahoo News – by Belinda Luscombe | Time.com

A new women’s garment company is developing a line of stylish rape resistant clothing. Have gender relations come to this?

The company, a little start up in Nyack, New York, is crowdfunding its project on Indiegogo and says on its website that it wants to make women feel safer wherever they are or whatever happens to them. To accomplish that, AR Wear is pretty much reclaiming the chastity belt with the mother of all control top pants. Each pair of boy-cut undies is secured with three bands, one around the waist and one on each leg that are very difficult to cut. The pants have a kind of impenetrable modesty panel to cover the business bits. There’s even a lock on the waist, which can only be unlocked using two hands (thus preventing the attacker from restraining his would be victim with the other). These knickers are not coming off in a hurry.  

“We wanted to offer some peace of mind in situations that cause feelings of apprehension, such as going out on a blind date, taking an evening run, “clubbing”, traveling in unfamiliar countries, and any other activity that might make one anxious about the possibility of an assault,” says the fundraising website, which so far has amassed about 60% of the $50,000 worth of start up money it needs to finish its prototype. Its motto: “A clothing line offering wearable protection for when things go wrong.”

The idea has been met with a range of responses from open mockery to accusations of blaming the victim to a sort of wary acceptance. But the fact that some women felt the need to invent such a garment indicates that male-female relations have reached a new nadir. Getting raped is no longer considered a horrible but extremely unlikely happenstance; it’s now more like getting pickpocketed—an occurrence that only the very naive fail to guard against.

Anti-rape undies aren’t even the only innovation in this area. In South Africa, a female doctor came up with a barbed condom-like device women could wear inside their vaginas that would clamp down on anything that found its way in there.  A startup called DrinkSavvy has raised funds for a line of straws and glassware that will change color if a drink has been adulterated with a date-rape drug and hopes to release its first products in December. Earlier this year, Indian students came up with underwear that gave would- be attackers an electric shock. Way back in 2005, some Swedish students devised an anti-rape belt buckle, but it didn’t go into production.

While rape stats are less than reliable, studies generally agree that between 15% and 20% of women in the U.S. have been raped at least once, and a disturbing report from the United Nations recently revealed that a quarter of Asian men admitted to forcing girlfriends or wives to have sex against their will. (Most experts on rape believe that the crime is massively undercounted because so few victims report it.) Both those are dreadfully high numbers, but there are signs that the trend may be on the decline. A March 2013 report from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of  Statistics found that from 1995 to 2010, the estimated annual rate of female rape or sexual assault declined 58%, from 5.0 incidents per 1,000 females age 12 or older to 2.1 per 1,000.

So why the need for anti-rape panties now?

Perhaps the reason is hidden in the other surprising set of statistics about rape. Sexual assaults happen less often outside or in a strange place than they do in the home of the victim or the aggressor. And according the U.S. Justice Bureau’s figures, fewer than a quarter of all rapes are committed by a person who is a stranger to the victim. Most rapists are a family member, a friend, a former partner or even a boyfriend. When the putative rapists are not hardened criminals, but people we know and hang out with, the potential for rape seems to be much greater and the safety measures much less effective. Ironically, although the creators of the anti-rape panties recommend them for use in new or strange situations, it’s familiar ones that pose the greater threat.

The vast majority of men, obviously, are not rapists, but unfortunately the ones who are don’t tend to advertise the fact, and in the case of disputed date rapes would not even acknowledge the fact. Highly publicized sexual assaults such as the case in Steubenville Ohio, in which a high school girl was raped after she drank too much or the one in Maryville, Missouri, in which a girl believed she had been raped even though the justice system didn’t agree, have left women feeling vulnerable and with few places of sanctuary.

Perhaps what is needed then is not so much Anti-Rape undies but Consent Undies — boxers or briefs men agree to wear that only the women can undo, whenever they feel ready to do so, with the consent of both parties. Of course, someone’s going to have to come up with a heck of a marketing campaign to sell that idea to the guys.

    I guess they’ll sell it to someone, but I think the good ol’ steel chastity belt is much more erotic.

  2. diggerdan says:

    I would think that a good gouge to the eyes and a good kick to the crotch would take care of the job just as good or probobly better. Gouge the rapist molester/rapists eyes right out of their dirty perverted head, gouge them eyes right out of the sockets.

    My Fellow Patriots:

    I think these are going to marketed as:

    1) “Anti-TSA Molesting Undergarments”

    2) “Protection From Police Undergarments”

    I think they will have work out the marketing terms a little bit,.. but you get the idea…

    JD – US Marines – You want to stop 99% of the rapes and molestings that occur in this country everyday? – Just get rid of the TSA and make it, “Life-In-Prison” for ANY cop that molests or rapes anyone,.. especially when they claim it’s,.. “in the line of duty”!

    Everyone keep their sanity, after mucking around with all these oath breakers day after day be careful that it doesn’t literally rub off. I keep finding myself in literal rage from time to time. It’s hopelessness and anger, and resentment.

    Yes that kind that give high blood pressure and kills.
    The kind that makes you snap in public and the cops shoot ya up.

    I can not release the resentment of the oath breakers destroying the constitution, bill of rights, and law of the land – to do so is to break my own oath, so I am STUCK being pissed off nearly all the time now.

    Angrily eating dinner.
    Sleeping for 2 hours at a time.

    I have no advice except my own, and that is to just try to recognize it when it comes, and don’t drink more than four beers at a time while consuming propaganda and the bullshit they call news. ( Two is best)

    I would say, try to recognize it in others and avoid them at such times.

    The answer to all this as EVERYONE HERE well knows, is to restore the US Constitution and arrest all these fu##ers. I bet you FEEL good after that. So it’s NOT a fu##ing obamacare DSM-5 gun grabber psychiatric problem, it’s a PHYSICAL PROBLEM caused by the actions of these motherfu##ers. The destruction of everything you believed in causes illness. Watching people waste away causes illness. An ocean full of plutonium while the EPA shills for the United Nations has CONSEQUENCES!

    The people who did this are going to pay. The only question now is when.
