....is what the reaction was to Miss Nevada's answer during the pageant about sexual assaults at college campuses Dead




Miss Nevada, Nia Sanchez, was crowned Miss USA on Sunday night. During the pageant, Sanchez, who has a fourth-degree black belt in taekwondo, was asked a question about sexual assaults on college campuses. Sanchez suggested that women get training to learn how to defend themselves.

Guess what happened next:


The #YesAllWomen crowd are going nuts that the winner supports self defense. Haha #MissUSA—

For many, yes, the suggestion that women learn to defend themselves was a ridiculous idea, and it even constituted “victim blaming”:


How did she win after that awful and offensive answer? Idiot—

I'm sorry, but women shouldn't need to take self defense classes to protect themselves from rape #MissUSA—

Let's hope Nevada uses her media tour to reiterate that teaching girls self defense is NOT the best way to protect against assault #MissUSA—

Miss Nevada, who just reinforced victim-blaming rape culture to millions of viewers, is crowned #MissUSA 2014.—

Miss Nevada was asked about rape at colleges and answered that women need to learn to defend themselves… OR MEN COULD JUST NOT RAPE.— 
Anna Garcia (@a_mariagarica) June 09, 2014


Not happy w/ Miss Nevada's answer that to stop rape we should teach women to defend themselves…Why don't we teach men to not rape?— 
Kelsey Bemus (@KelseyBemus) June 09, 2014


Miss Nevada described how individuals need to protect themselves from rape, instead of teaching others not to rape. Stop the victim blaming.—

Miss Nevada saying rape can be prevented by women learning self defense and being "confident" 😒😒😒—

Miss Nevada👎
Sick of hearing "women need to learn selfdefense from sexual violence"
We need a culture we don't have to defend ourselves from—

Women shouldn't need to learn to protect themselves against rape #missnevadaeducate and respect yourself as a woman #rapeculture— 
Anna Beth West (@annabethwest) June 09, 2014


I get that the college sexual assault problem can't be solved in 30 secs but still icky to pretend like self defense is the answer. #MissUSA— 
Elisa Benson (@elisabenson) June 09, 2014


@hayley_lady What she is doing is promoting the idea of a woman taking control of their own life.— 
Hooray Beerz (@HoorayBeerz1) June 09, 2014


@HoorayBeerz1 Maybe that was her intention, but she should've noted that a lack of self-defense is not the reason behind rape.— 
Hayley Johnson (@hayley_lady) June 09, 2014


Miss Nevada saying women should learn self defense to prevent rape/sexual assault…👌 k. #yourejokingright— 
Emily Cowart (@cowartemily) June 09, 2014


Miss Nevada's answer is my problem with the way people look at the issue of sexual violence, it's not just about self defense #MissUSA— 
Yamini Bhandari (@YamBhands) June 09, 2014


Miss Nevada might be gorgeous, but needs to realize teaching self defense to women isn't the solution for ending sexual assault #YesAllWomen— 
Elisabeth Jasina (@jasinae) June 09, 2014


Miss Iowa says today's youth are narcissistic followed by Miss Nevada who wants to end rape with self defense classes Really? Sick #MissUSA— 
Bergen N. Baucom (@BergenNBaucom) June 09, 2014


Really Miss Nevada? We should combat rape with self defense? Rape culture wins again 😒— 
Meaghan Miller (@MeaghanAwesome) June 09, 2014


Hey Miss Nevada- how about instead of woman learning to protect themselves, men learn to not rape women?— 
Cait Cremeens (@CaitCremeens) June 09, 2014


No, Miss Nevada. The solution to rape is not that all women should have black belts. Thanks though. #nottheproblem #missedthepoint #MissUSA— 
Ashley Ramsey Hannum (@ashleyrramsey) June 09, 2014


Miss Nevada: How is it a woman's responsibility to learn to protect herself from rape? #MissUSA2014 #MissUSA #getaburkatoo— 
Stef (@stefawilson) June 09, 2014

Self-defense training seems to make more sense than certain other ridiculous methods that have been suggested, but apparently many disagree.

I see no problem with her answer. yes teach the boys not to rape but what we gone do in the mean time? why would anybody be mad at a woman knowing something on how to fight off an attack with trained knowledge? having a chance to not have to go through the type of attack that's going to scare her more than fighting a dude off?

@Jasmine. So u sayin' don't bother just take it should u be attacked?

I'm saying that it's often more complicated than just knowing how to defend yourself.

Has there ever been a suggestion, program, initiative to prevent rapists?

^^^and I can agree with that. it is more than self defense. It's a long process that even if started to today you're still gonna have women getting attacked until society "changes". It suspicious to me that folks don't want women to know anything about defending themselves. that's the way this is coming off.


eta: ^^^^ was for jasmine.

Yep!  Various bars have signs up about what consent looks like and what rape is.  They're basically saying don't be that creeper who does x, y, and z to get sex.

Miss Nevada is a 4th degree black belt. I am pretty sure self defense was going to be somewhere in her answer no matter what the question. Beauty queens don't put a lot of thought into the questions.

When you start making suggestions for what women should be doing to prevent sexual assault, when she doesn't do those things, the blame often falls for her.  Why were you wearing that?  Why were you drinking? You were wearing crazy high heels and couldn't get away...That's why people get annoyed with these suggestions.
