Train Men Not to Rape? Or Train Women to Shoot to Kill?

You are describing an event that has never occurred. It is simply a fairy tale. Before feminism, women were not even considered human beings. They were simply pieces of property that men could do with as they wished. While I strongly support a woman's right to defend herself I don't see what is wrong with teaching boys that rape is wrong. If they learn it when they are young, maybe they won't be facing a bullet when they are older.

If by "before feminism" you mean "from the Renaissance till the early 20th century", then sure.

In Western Europe from the 9th to 13th centuries, women were FULL LEGAL ADULTS from the age of 12 (boys from 14). Women owned property, ran businesses, filed lawsuits, and voted in any assembly where men could; they were taught to read just as often as men and bought more books. Whole industries—brewing in England, for instance—were female-dominated.

Then came the era of Classical revival—in Roman law, women had been the non-adult wards of their husbands or fathers until the day they died. Christianity kept the honor-killing and leaving of daughters to the wolves to a minimum, but Renaissance and "Enlightenment" women were legal children.

Are you an idiot? A closeted homosexual or bisexual?

Last week on Hannity a “Democratic Strategist” named Zerlina Maxwell told Sean and his audience that guns are not the proper deterrent to dissuade rapists, but rather “teaching men not to rape is the key”. When I heard that chunk of stupidity I blew apple juice out of my nostrils -- and I haven’t had any apple juice in the last eight years.

That’s what you call “strategy”, Zerlina? Man, I hope she advises the Dems in the upcoming midterms and in 2016, because she’s denser than a chunk of Turkish walnut.

First off, I don’t know what...
