NO I don’t "wish I were Korean”
NOR am I “trying to become Korean”
NO I don’t wish my skin was lighter
OR my legs to be smaller
NO I DON’T just find Korean men attractive
I am a fan of Korean pop culture. I love the artists, the music, the fashion, the variety shows, the dramas. But that doesn’t mean I wish to throw away my own culture.
Rape has become endemic in South Africa, so a medical technician named Sonette Ehlers developed a product that immediately gathered national attention there. Ehlers had never forgotten a rape victim telling her forlornly, “If only I had teeth down there.”
Some time afterward, a man came into the hospital where Ehlers works in excruciating pain because his penis was stuck in his pants zipper.
Ehlers merged those images and came up with a product she called Rapex. It resembles a tube, with barbs inside. The woman inserts it like a tampon, with an applicator, and any man who tries to rape the woman impales himself on the barbs and must go to an emergency room to have the Rapex removed.
When critics complained that it was a medieval punishment, Ehlers replied tersely, “A medieval device for a medieval deed.”

A medieval device for a medieval deed - yes.
This is perfect
BLESS THIS PERSON
I BOW TO THIS INTENTION
Can we talk about how beautifully this turns rape culture on its head? Instead of “If they weren’t dressed like that they wouldn’t have been raped” THIS IS LITERALLY “IF THEY HADN’T TRIED TO RAPE SOMEONE THEY WOULDN’T HAVE SPIKES IN THEIR DICK”*
almost everyone I tell about thus go ‘its so cruel! Its inhumane!’
whAT IS RAPE THEN!?!
But like what if a girl forgets she’s wearing it :L then guys will be getting hurt for no reason
Yes, because you’re likely to forget a barbed tube is shoved up your vagina.
