A sure-fire rape deterrent: A good hot, home-cooked meal!! A woman, fearing for her safety should feed her attacker into submission, albeit a modicum or better of cooking prowess will be necessary to see to it said attacker is rendered incapacitated and asleep in front of the TV, but along with all the other fanciful solutions, why not add comfort food to the aforementioned list of idiocy being suggested?!!!
Who needs a firearm, when a saucier pan is locked-n-loaded on a front burner?!!!
