Feminists Freak Out Over Miss Nevada Suggestion Women Learn Self Defense to Avoid Rape

'We shouldn't teach women self-defense so they can avoid being raped, rather we should only teach men it is bad to rape.'

That's the logic coming from leftist feminists in response to Miss Nevada Nia Sanchez, now Miss USA, suggesting last night that women should learn self-defense in order to prevent or avoid being sexually assaulted. Sanchez is a fourth degree black belt in taekwondo.


First, Miss Nevada's suggestion during Miss USA last night and after she won the title:

“I believe that some colleges may potentially be afraid of having a bad reputation and that would be a reason it could be swept under the rug, because they don’t want that to come out into the public,”Nia Sanchez said. “But I think more awareness is very important so women can learn how to protect themselves. Myself, as a fourth-degree black belt, I learned from a young age that you need to be confident and be able to defend yourself. And I think that’s something that we should start to really implement for a lot of women.”

Second, the reaction:


Got that? Self defense is icky. That came from Elisa Benson, who is the community manager at one of the world's largest women's magazines, Cosmopolitan.

Here's a suggestion: Let's keep teaching everyone that rape is barbaric while also teaching women about self-defense should they find themselves in a bad situation. We can and should do both.

Modern feminism can't survive without victims so naturally, preventing victimhood through self-defense is unacceptable. Telling women they don't need self-defense to prevent rape is exactly what moves "rape-culture" forward.
