Teach Your Daughters To Hit Someone Who Touches Them
I recently read this article on http://www.breachbangclear.com/teach-your-daughters-to-hit-someone/
It’s one of my favorite blog/websites. I’m reposting because I believe in what it says and I feel it has value to the community. I do have a few remarks and here they are:
Many of the readers responded that in many school systems it’s a felony to use violence, even in self-defense. That this record could follow you and prevent you from joining the military, getting clearance or a job. Others point out that jobs and some schools have policies that require your immediate dismissal.
I believe this is empowers the creeps who know the treat of dismissal or a felony charge will make their victim complacent. One only has to look at the Hollywood-Harvey Weinstein scandal to understand this. I can’t change the world, but we can by insisting our schools and place of employment treat self-defense is a right and not an option to be conveniently discarded.
I’m clearly on the kick ‘em in the nuts and break their fingers side and I if I had a daughter (or son for that matter) I’d tell her what David says and that’s we’ll find a solution for the aftermath later.
“Teach your daughters, goddaughters, and nieces to fight. If you can’t, then pay someone to, and teach them that violence is acceptable. Teach them to hit people who touch them. Not tell the teacher, not complain to the Human Resources department, to hit them, as viciously as possible, immediately and publicly.
Testicles, throats, eyes — they’re all vulnerable.
Violence may not always be the answer, but when it is the answer, it’s usually the only answer. Including when, perhaps especially when, someone touches them without permission.
Speaking strictly to my nieces and goddaughters, I say: you bring me the scrotum of some dude who grabbed your boob or your butt, girls. I’ll reward you and turn it into a tobacco pouch. I’d hold forth and talk more about this, but Jeff Rouner of the Houston Press already has, and he did a great job of it.
“I’ve started telling my daughter that if someone touches her chest, her ass or between her legs without her permission, to punch them in the goddamn face. Aim for the nose, Sweetheart. You don’t want to catch their teeth and get a cut. That’s a good way to get an infection. You want nose or eyes, and maybe use that front choke Daddy taught you. Turn your forearms so the bone goes against their carotid and jugular. That’s what makes them pass out.
Can she get in trouble for violence at school? Yes, she can, and should. Violence is illegal. Note: I didn’t say wrong. I said illegal. The two are not synonyms.
Is violence the ideal answer to sexual harassment? Of course it isn’t. The ideal answer is living in a world where this sort of thing is swiftly dealt with at all levels of authority with a zero-tolerance policy. Anytime y’all want to make that happen, you let me know. Until then, I’m teaching my daughter the proper way to throw a punch, and if you don’t like it, teach your kids the proper way to act.
Answering physical assault with physical assault is perfectly appropriate, and I have long since stopped caring about the concept of polite when it comes to those who feel boundaries are optional….”
So there you have it. Personally I suspect that no school or business wants the publicity what would come from institutionalizing sexual violence by prohibiting self-defense. My experience is organizations suddenly go silent when you offer to take it to the press.
