I can't believe many, sure maybe a handful would buy into this preposterous, Conscientious Objectors attitude, but not many.
Or, am I wrong?
I'm not quite as disgusted with those that buy into this bizarre attitude regarding self defense as those who espouse it.
I'm sure that almost any woman would rather be able to defend herself that to be subjected to an attack, but, the talking heads, the ones who get the air time, who for the most part, have 24/7 security details, can't bring themselves to admit that a firearm is the best way to fend off an attacker.
So they come up with cockamamie ideas, like rape whistles, self urination, and a host of other things that know have never worked to deter a rapist, but still put them out there so that they can say they have a way for women to be less defenseless. ( I guess that's a proper phrase) They refuse to look at hard data, even interviews with rapists, who would tell them that they fear someone with a gun, more that a whistle.
They also espouse the idea, that the police will somehow magically appear, during an attack to save the woman. Many women who originally bought into these premises, had to go through an attack, before seeing the light, and are now spokespersons for being armed.
