"I’m not saying I support rape, but-"

"Sorry to say - she deserved it."

"She put herself in harm’s way"

"But if she was fingered, then that’s not rape."

"She ruined their lives."

"Well she didn’t exactly say ‘no’.."

"Yea, but did you see what she was wearing?"

that in the Chinese version of Disney’s Mulan, the fake name she gives is “Ping”, but her family name “Fa” in English is “Hua” in Chinese, therefore her full name is “Hua Ping”, which is literally “Flower Vase”, and that’s why Shang is so bewildered because it’s a silly name.

but OP how could you not tell them the best part

“hua ping”/flower vase is chinese slang for “camp gay”

11 ways to solve rape better than nail polish

The more we depend on women to prevent rape, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Here’s a look at the well-documented ways we can actually stop rape. Maybe it’s time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing them before we send gallons of nail polish to colleges across the country.

I absolutely agree with this 100% wholeheartedly. Too often young women are taught to take their pepper spray with them and be cautious and walk in groups while parents, teachers, mentors, etc. fail to have conversations with young men about how to treat women with respect and that no person is entitled to another person’s body no matter what. BUT, that being said, as a very petite young woman on a college campus with minimal self-defense skills, it makes me feel good that a product like Undercover Colors can help me feel in control of a situation. I like wearing nail polish already — it’s a bonus that I can use it to tell if someone is trying to violate the control I have over my own body. I don’t think products like this are harmful themselves. What is harmful is the lack of conversation with young men, not the presence of products/services that allow women to better control the situations they are in. As much as I would love to “solve the issue of rape”, I accept that there are crazies out there no matter what, and I like that there are things I can do to make myself feel safer. BUT, if more parents/teachers/etc. would start educating young men about respecting other peoples’ bodies as early as they would start educating women on ways they can keep themselves safe, then I think the % of men and women who experience sexual assault on any level can be decreased.
