If only there were laws against things like sexual assault, violence, and rape. Why has no one thought to pass laws?
(The Blaze) Appearing on Fox News Tuesday night, Democratic Strategist Zerlina Maxwell argued that preventing rape should start by simply “telling men not to rape women.” She was arguing against women using guns as a means of self-defense when she made the questionable remarks.
Host Sean Hannity began by slamming the “ignorant politicians” in Colorado for trying to remove a woman’s right to use a firearm to defend herself against an attacker via gun control legislation.
“I don’t think that we should be telling women anything,” Maxwell said. “I think we should be telling men not to rape women and start the conversation there.”
OK, let’s start the conversation there:
- “Hey, men, don’t rape women”
- Rapist: “go f*** yourself, I’ll do what I want”
- Woman with gun about to be raped: “Stop! No? Blam. Blam blam blam. Try raping someone without a penis”
That went well!
“Criminals are not going to listen to that,” Hannity interjected.
Wait, it is against the law? But people still rape?
Instead, Maxwell, who is a rape survivor herself, said she wants women to “not be in this situation.” She added that if you “train” men not to be rapists, we can prevent rape.
Perhaps she could explain exactly how men could be trained? Because it is against the law, and men know they shouldn’t do it. Humans have been telling themselves for centuries that rape is bad. Except for the criminals, who do not care. Perhaps we could change the punishment for rape (and other crimes) to include corporal punishment, instead of a somewhat cushy life in jail. Bring back things like the stocks, hard labor, and lashings. Remember that kid, Michael P. Fay, who received 4 lashes from a cane for vandalism in Singapore? I bet he never did that again. And Singapore, with corporal punishment, has one of the lowest crime rates in the world.
