Skip to comments.Feminists Freak Out Over Miss Nevada Suggestion Women Learn Self Defense to Avoid Rape

I believe that some colleges may potentially be afraid of having a bad reputation and that would be a reason it could be swept under the rug, because they dont want that to come out into the public,Nia Sanchez said. But I think more awareness is very important so women can learn how to protect themselves. Myself, as a fourth-degree black belt, I learned from a young age that you need to be confident and be able to defend yourself. And I think thats something that we should start to really implement for a lot of women.

Maybe she should have suggested concealed carry?
Hey, if Feminazis don’t want to learn self-defense, so be it.
It takes a long time to earn a fourth-degree black belt. Not that it isn’t worthwhile. But in the meantime, it takes less time to learn to be a crack shot at the range with a .38.
I’m not understanding why feminazis would be opposed to self defense.
I can remember when that WAS a feminist stance.
I think she has the right attitude!
We enrolled my nephew in Kung-fu so he could gain confidence and physical coordination. It has come in handy when self-defence has been required, too.
Maybe the Feminazis think a woman should lay back and enjoy it.
One of them said self defense is icky.
4th degree, huh? I can’t find any real video of her sparring or fighting...would make interesting viewing.
They want to claim victim status. Telling women not to learn to defend themselves but to teach men not to rape is kind of like telling people not to do drugs, not to drink and drive, etc. It’s still gonna happen so you have to take care of yourself, you CANNOT expect other people to do it for you.
Feminism is about making woman victims.
I guess feminists like being raped, or like the idea of being raped? Or they're so screwed up that they don't see the logical implications of their positions on these things?
The way to stop rape is to tell men to stop doing it. Because it never occurred to them to not rape someone.
I don’t know about her 38 but she can carry her fourth degree black belt everywhere she goes.
Don’t worry, it’s really not rape when a Democrat/Liberal is a suspect, right Whoopi?
Yes, precisely. By the leftists/progressives/Democrats. Always has been.
Because they don't want solutions to problems. Feminazis are not on the side of women. As long as they can whine and complain and play the victim, the gravy train will just keep on comin’.
‘Feminists’ lost all credibility during the Bill Clinton years.
I haven't seen photos. But, based on the articulation, captured in text, of here ideas, God must have blessed her with exceptional beauty. That said, her simple mind seems to have the right ideas in it. And she should be congratulated and encouraged for that.
Now, does she vote and for who?
The only thing the feminists have done is alienated men and women. Add in the baby killing as some right.
Feminism is about making unattractive women have greater access to the mainstream of society. Unattractive women don’t have to worry about being raped.
Feminism is just an offshoot of liberalism which seeks to make everyone a victim.
Would these be the same feminists who are pushing to deploy women in combat zones?
According to feminists, women don’t need to defend themselves; all they have to do is vote Democrat and the Democrat Party will protect them. Women are just another class of victims beholden to the Democrat Party for their well being.
As a third degree black belt in hapkido, I believe learning self-defense is critical. It may be useful if your gun jams or you run out of ammunition.
Assuming a 120 lb woman is going to prevail over a 200 lb rapist because she learned a bunch of katas, while perhaps not implausible, is hopeful thinking at best.
Get a gun.
Keep in mind that the “feminist leadership” is really just a wholly owned subsidiary of the Progressive Movement.
Look at the rape/sexual assault stats demographics in that context. The feminist leadership just isn’t as concerned about women defending themselves as not rocking the Progressive boat by offending another portion of the Progressive Coalition.
“Elisabeth Jasina @jasinae
Miss Nevada might be gorgeous, but needs to realize teaching self defense to women isn’t the solution for ending sexual assault #YesAllWomen”
WHAT? Um, so what is the solution genius? Asking the rapist politely not to rape you?
Liberals are like Europe.
They wander around life, without being prepared to defend themselves - no guns in the house, self defense training is sneered at. But, for the most part, they have no problems - because those of us who do defend ourselves are protecting the entire herd.
Paulie got it right. But I will take it a step further than just Feminazis. Liberals and Democrats don't want solutions that work. They are in the business of selling problems/victims so they can solicit power to work on solutions. It's actually the liberal play book. Try and think of a SINGLE thing that liberal ideology has solved with major negative consequences. To my knowledge there isn't one.
Republicans solved slavery and segregation but democrats have pushed and fostered racism and its victims ever since. Poverty, environment, wealth disparity, healthcare, war on drugs, immigration, sexism, gay rights, etc.
The democrats would go out of business if they ever solved anything. They have to create or exacerbate an problem to convince the powers to give them money and power to fix things. Lather, rinse, repeat.
And turning men into girls.
Indeed. I guess they think if they just say "No" enough the rapist will hang his head in shame and walk away.
Perhaps the goal of radical American feminism is male castration, then no black belt required.
Feminists are afraid of strong women. If you are physically and mentally strong then you have no need to rely on the government. That is where their fear lies.
Holy crap, I cannot believe the morons out there.....
“Anna Beth West @annabethwest
Women shouldn’t need to learn to protect themselves against rape #missnevada educate and respect yourself as a woman”
What? Is she trying to say rape happens because women have low self esteem?
I get that the college sexual assault problem can’t be solved in 30 secs but still icky to pretend like self defense is the answer.”
So if someone is trying to murder you, which happens quite a lot to women who are raped, don’t defend yourself because it’s “icky”.
I give you Nia Sanchez, Miss Nevada.
Besides feminists, you know who else is against self defense when it comes to rape? The rapist.
Here you go:
Myself, as a fourth-degree black belt, I learned from a young age that you need to be confident and be able to defend yourself.
Awesome! My oldest daughter is a black belt and youngest is a year away (I’m three years away). The older one knows grappling and ju-jitsu. Younger one is just starting to learn.
Most self-defense situations require hand-to-hand combat, not guns, so learning TKD or other martial art should be first and foremost. Then learn to use a stick, knife, sword and other weapons.
But learning to use firearms should parallel that training for those other self-defense situations.
Apparently most liberal women don’t have anything of value worth protecting.
Do you see the FemiNazis getting up in the grills of the IslamoNazis protesting the socially acceptable art of wife beating, honor killings, and other forms of misogyny?
The crickets wail loudly!
She does a pretty good job carrying her 38s too (but I'm with you on the black belt - it's even allowed in gun free zones).
Yes, this doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. I thought the whole feminist ideal was to be self sufficient, self fulfilling and self supporting? This is just plain crazy talk..................
“Im not understanding why feminazis would be opposed to self defense.”
Because self defense puts the onus of responsability on themselves. When they think of this they think that it infers that they are the ones responsible for the act and their victimhood kicks in and they come up with “HOW DARE YOU BLAME ME!”
They cant get past the non causal relationship. Just another victim. Take responsability for your saftey. Telling men to not rape is never going to work. Kicking him in the privates or plugging him with a .38 sure will!
The ‘feminist’ movement was invented by a group of Bull Dykes that wanted more prey.
To gain ‘market share’ they needed to convince women to hate men and blame them for everything from headaches and cramps, to kotex applied adhesive side up!
The insane Leftists want people to be totally dependent on government.
Their reasoning seems to be, “Why defend yourself when you can wait for a government approved police officer come to your aid 20 minutes after you have been violated? You are a BAD Socialist if you try to do anything for yourself. Submit to Big Brother, Criminals, and everyone else if doing otherwise doesn't include the State”
Does the Miss USA Pageant still have a faggot as a judge?
*Feminism is about making woman victims.*
I think this is the most profound statement on the topic.
When you REALLY think about it, they do NOT care about women, only about promoting their agenda.
It might even be the feminist’s motto...
This can only lead to escalation. Since Miss America (rather than this Miss USA competition) has a talent competition, I suggest that Miss Texas's talent be marksmanship.
