I think the bigger criticism is that her answer was just the typical rhetoric on a national stage.

We enroll India in self defense classes at the age of 5 . My daughter can kick like a football player . Our classes will continue over the summer break . Target and walmart need to do better .

It sucks.  I think women do a lot of try to prevent being assaulted.  It doesn't solve the problem though.  We're not the problem.  Just like there's not a lot black people can do to stop racism from white people.  We can just steel ourselves against the bullsh*t and support each other.

I think since her mom says she was raped in an alleyway by a stranger  that in her mind she's only saying what she wish her mother could have done.

The problem is, most rapes are not like what you see on Law n Order SVU. They're usually committed by people you know, people who are in authority over you, or involve some kind of intoxication. Which means knowing self-defense will do jack squat to help you.

And having taken a self-defense course, man do you know how tired you get after fighting for just a few minutes? It's not realistic to expect that to truly help you. Now a taser would help. Maybe women should lobby for rape taser laws.

May, I was wondering if this was the same woman. That's probably where her mind went with that answer.

Self defense classes saved my life twice maysay . My energy level was never that high until the attacks . I know some women that panic and freeze up . I agree . Most rapes are not like LNO ..

I don't think anyone is anti self-defense class. I think mostly people are tired of this same ol answer to this question when the topic comes up. People who know self denfense get sexually assaulted all the time. Now what? If we want effective change, there needs to be an answer that addresses the root of the problem

I'm glad it did. I think self-defense classes are great because a lot of what you learn is stuff that isn't just intuitive....plus you learn to be more aware in general...and it increases your confidence (at least it did for me). I'd rather people have more information than less. It just doesn't solve the rape problem.
