You guys can't be serious. Nobody is freaking out because this isn't good advice. The question wasn't "what's some good advice for the women watching out there?" She was given some pretty shocking statistics about sexual assault against women in the United States and the question was what she thought about that. As opposed to saying anything along the lines of "well sexual assault is bad" or maybe something along the lines of trying to solve the issue of sexual assault, her response was essentially, "well women should get better at fighting off guys who try to assault them." If you guys really think people are upset because she suggest women try to become independent than you're just refusing to look at the issue from any other side than your own and committing the same retarded logical fallacies as every other statist pundit on CNN or FOX you've probably ripped on at one point or another. Now bring on the downvotes you plebes.

Ah, see, I was going to respond to you with a comment befitting of a person contributing to a conversation (a wrong person, but a contributing person nevertheless), but then your "I have shitty preconceived expectations of all of you, and will willingly start the escalations myself with an insult" closing made it clear that you r 12 and wat is this. Edit: You're welcome for the downvote. Your wish is my command.

Did you make a point somewhere in there? All sides considered, the reaction of radfems, is a nonsensical one, much like your little rant. I'M A WOMAN. I don't like when these hysterical nut jobs speak for me just because we share the same kind of genitals. It's embarrassing and unproductive. Social justice warriors aren't going to change anything in this world, especially people who want to attack women, or men! They're just creating more victims with their whiny, finger-pointing prophecies.

The point is she didn't remark that sexual assault is a problem in any way, that we should try to solve it, etc. just that women should learn how to deal with it. THAT is why the feminists are pissed and everyone here is acting like they just whining and attempting to make some socialist case for the government to take care of their every step. If you'd rather society just teach all women how to beat some ass rather than fix the sexual assault issue than good for you.

Oh and social justice warriors accomplish nothing by "whining" and "finger pointing"? What was the civil rights movement then? Was it not an outcry against the same kind of injustice?

That's because only an idiot would need to have that reiterated. Sexual assault is a crime. Rape is basically the second-worst crime in our society. Fill in the blank here: "The prison was filled with murderers and _______."

You can't "solve" it any more than you can "solve" theft, murder, or any other crime that already defies social norms.

>THAT is why the feminists are pissed and everyone here is acting like they just whining and attempting to make some socialist case for the government to take care of their every step.

Even if they were doing that they might earn a modicum of respect. Instead they are arguing that the second-most-heinous crime in our society is somehow legal and celebrated.

You're not Martin Luther King, idiot.

No No No, as one of the people on twitter said "you can just teach men not to rape" It is just an education problem. We just need the government to steal some more money to create the proper "education" for men so they stop raping

There's a difference between MLK orchestrating bus boycotts and huge marches versus people complaining on twitter and tumblr.

I think that is kind of a given. It's like saying 'Hitler wasn't a very nice person' when discussing WW2. Everyone knows that, you don't need to say it.

>trying to solve the issue of sexual assault, her response was essentially, "well women should get better at fighting off guys who try to assault them."

Seems like a pretty decent solution to me. There are always going to be random lunatics in the world. No amount of feel-good social programs are going to get rid of them. They are a fact of life. All you can do is take measures to protect yourself in the event that you are unfortunate enough to encounter one (they are, fortunately, rare).

This would solve the issue of sexual assault.

That is a solution to solve the issue of sexual assault. I find it odd that people do not believe self defense is the solution to this crime.

Self defense is the solution to ALL CRIMES.... If more people too more responsibility for their own protection, vs off loading that to the mythical government, society would be better off
