Key in these search terms. --> #missusa self defense <--- What you'll find will shock the hell out of you. Unbelievable. #tcot Stacey-SisterToldjah (@sistertoldjah) June 09, 2014
So wait now it's "unfeminist" to defend yourself if attacked? Jesus take the wheel. #missusa Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) June 09, 2014
Seems Miss Nevada said something about self-defence to a rape question & now half of twitter is freaking out because #MissUSA cant be smart (@Mistressnancy) June 09, 2014
Miss Nevada, Nia Sanchez, was crowned Miss USA on Sunday night. During the pageant, Sanchez, who has a fourth-degree black belt in taekwondo, was asked a question about sexual assaults on college campuses. Sanchez suggested that women get training to learn how to defend themselves.
Guess what happened next:
The #YesAllWomen crowd are going nuts that the winner supports self defense. Haha #MissUSA Mitch Behna (@MitchBehna) June 09, 2014
For many, yes, the suggestion that women learn to defend themselves was a ridiculous idea, and it even constituted victim blaming:
How did she win after that awful and offensive answer? Idiot Cait Cremeens (@CaitCremeens) June 09, 2014
I'm sorry, but women shouldn't need to take self defense classes to protect themselves from rape #MissUSA Peter Simon (@PeterSimon12) June 09, 2014
Let's hope Nevada uses her media tour to reiterate that teaching girls self defense is NOT the best way to protect against assault #MissUSA Mandy Velez (@mandy_velez) June 09, 2014
Miss Nevada, who just reinforced victim-blaming rape culture to millions of viewers, is crowned #MissUSA 2014. īrīn ✺ əfīʿ (@shereenTshafi) June 09, 2014
Miss Nevada was asked about rape at colleges and answered that women need to learn to defend themselves OR MEN COULD JUST NOT RAPE. Anna Garcia (@a_mariagarica) June 09, 2014
Not happy w/ Miss Nevada's answer that to stop rape we should teach women to defend themselves Why don't we teach men to not rape? Kelsey Bemus (@KelseyBemus) June 09, 2014
Miss Nevada described how individuals need to protect themselves from rape, instead of teaching others not to rape. Stop the victim blaming. Haley Ploucha (@hallepalouka) June 09, 2014
Miss Nevada saying rape can be prevented by women learning self defense and being "confident" 😒😒😒 haben (@Whatshabbennin) June 09, 2014
Miss Nevada👎 Sick of hearing "women need to learn selfdefense from sexual violence" We need a culture we don't have to defend ourselves from Colleen Gibbons (@GibbonsColleen) June 09, 2014
Women shouldn't need to learn to protect themselves against rape #missnevada educate and respect yourself as a woman #rapeculture Anna Beth West (@annabethwest) June 09, 2014
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. #MissUSA Elisa Benson (@elisabenson) June 09, 2014
@hayley_lady What she is doing is promoting the idea of a woman taking control of their own life. Hooray Beerz (@HoorayBeerz1) June 09, 2014
@HoorayBeerz1 Maybe that was her intention, but she should've noted that a lack of self-defense is not the reason behind rape. Hayley Johnson (@hayley_lady) June 09, 2014
Miss Nevada saying women should learn self defense to prevent rape/sexual assault 👌 k. #yourejokingright Emily Cowart (@cowartemily) June 09, 2014
Miss Nevada's answer is my problem with the way people look at the issue of sexual violence, it's not just about self defense #MissUSA Yamini Bhandari (@YamBhands) June 09, 2014
Miss Nevada might be gorgeous, but needs to realize teaching self defense to women isn't the solution for ending sexual assault #YesAllWomen Elisabeth Jasina (@jasinae) June 09, 2014
Miss Iowa says today's youth are narcissistic followed by Miss Nevada who wants to end rape with self defense classes Really? Sick #MissUSA Bergen N. Baucom (@BergenNBaucom) June 09, 2014
Really Miss Nevada? We should combat rape with self defense? Rape culture wins again 😒 Meaghan Miller (@MeaghanAwesome) June 09, 2014
Hey Miss Nevada- how about instead of woman learning to protect themselves, men learn to not rape women? Cait Cremeens (@CaitCremeens) June 09, 2014
No, Miss Nevada. The solution to rape is not that all women should have black belts. Thanks though. #nottheproblem #missedthepoint #MissUSA Ashley Ramsey Hannum (@ashleyrramsey) June 09, 2014
Miss Nevada: How is it a woman's responsibility to learn to protect herself from rape? #MissUSA2014 #MissUSA #getaburkatoo Stef (@stefawilson) June 09, 2014
Self-defense training seems to make more sense than certain other ridiculous methods that have been suggested, but apparently many disagree.
Well, then get an armed guard like Rosie.
See this post from earlier:
More wisdom from liberal utopians denying human nature.
“I’m sorry, but women shouldn’t need to take self defense classes to protect themselves from rape #MissUSA Peter Simon (@PeterSimon12) June 09, 2014”
I just can’t believe that this fem-boy actually wrote this. ^ What a tool.
I guess he’s just tired of women beating the crap out of him.
So, these “feminists” want women to remain passive? Idiot hypocrites.
Liberals want to wish utopia into existance.
“The evil will go away if we just ignore it....”
The current agenda is to “gay away” aggression.
Women shouldn’t have to take self defense classes in order to be safe? Gee, that used to be the case, but this is the real world created by liberals, where rapists who have served a few months in jail are back out on the street due to liberal compassion, putting women at the mercy of the very real situation that when seconds count, the police are minutes away.
Yes, we need to know how to defend ourselves. That is reality.
My land these people put a big S on stupid, don’t they.
But the world of crime prevention is chock full of victim blaming.
“People should lock their doors if they are out of town.”
“You should not leave your purse unattended.”
“You should not give personal info to Nigerian princes.”
“You should not follow the same route day after day when making a nightly bank deposit.”
“You should not open the door to strangers.”
Wow why don’t the police and other crime prevention specialists stop blaming the victim. Criminals should just stop robbing, defrauding, stealing, assaulting, and being bad guys.
Better to be raped than armed!! What a motto!!
Ewwww guns are icky. They make big noises and promote the idea that rape awareness is not enough to make men stop being the baddies.
Lock my doors? I shouldn’t have to worry about my junk being stolen! We* need to teach people not to steal!
Learn to use a fire extinguisher? We shouldn’t have to worry about fires!
Learn first aid? We shouldn’t have to worry about bleeding!

Don’t give personal information to Nigerian princes? Just the other day, I got an e-mail from Nigeria. Somebody had a long African sounding name, but my last name was one of their middle names. And they said we were related, and that there was money to be shared. You mean they want my personal information for nefarious purposes?????
“OR MEN COULD JUST NOT RAPE. Anna Garcia (@a_mariagarica) June 09, 2014 “
Yeah hows that working out for you???
I didn't think I would be surprised. But I am. Did I wake up on the right planet this morning? We are still on the earth that is located in the "Solar System" in an arm on the edge of the "Milky Way" Galaxy, right?
Oh and femtards, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A RAPE CULTURE! Unless you mean in Islam countries where women are chattel. But in countries that have embraced Western civilization there is no such thing.
because if you weren’t such a tease, you wouldn’t have been raped, tell that to the 91 year olds that get raped
don’t get that it is a power play and not sex
WTH do the hairy-legs have against self-defense? Last I checked, “empowerment” was their big push... what’s more empowering than fending off an attacker?
Ah well.. liberals and common sense are akin to oil and water.
Stupid liberal bitches... of COURSE a society in which women aren’t attacked should be the goal, but until then... WHAT????
Seems the women’s rights movement has abandoned the “empowerment” stance???
Go to work? I shouldn’t have to worry about money and food.
Actually, this one is becoming quite popular in certain circles.
Yeah, you see, if you are raped you can get a state subsidized abortion, but if you shoot the raper you could kill him, and that wouldn't be right...Would it? I mean, it's better to kill an innocent, unborn child than to kill some slime ball just trying to get his jollies. Right?
There’s just one reason feminists watch the Miss USA pageant, and that’s so they can find something to have a meltdown over.
Self defense exemplifies personal responsibility. Both negate the foundation of Marxism: that someone else is responsible for your misfortunes.
Freeing people of victimhood is freeing them from Marxism -the foundation of Liberalism.
I don’t think rape is something Rosie and most feminists will ever have to worry about.
Even deranged pshycopaths have some self respect.
Those statiastics on college rape are seriously nflated and don’t do anyone a service because they trivialize violent sexual assault and put it on the same level as pity sex.
We should pass a law requiring helmets when riding unicorns.

Yes, the bad news is that you will now be on the hook for attending the family reunion.
Defenselessness is empowering!
War is peace!
Ignorance is strength!
Freedom is slavery!
[ I don’t understand why this is an either-or situation in their minds, as if saying women should learn self defense means the word will go out to all men that it is now OK to rape. It is possible to do both. Teach that rape is wrong. Suggest women learn to defend themselves. ]
This makes no sense because the feminists claim they belive in natural selection so let’s select against rapist by arming women and having them pre-emptively take them out of the gene pool. Instead they are wanting to work against natural selection because their agenda trumps common sense.
Real bitches, female dogs, are a lot smarter and shouldn’t be insulted by being likened to such inferior,vile creatures as “human” feminists. A real bitch will defend herself against any dog that dries to rape her and will defend her puppies against any creature that tries to harm them.
How unbelievably stupid her detractors are.
Reminds me of day I went to a martial arts exhibit at local karate school. Two seriously ugly lesbians were grunting and growling but could not, for the life of them, put their hands through the small board used for beginners. Then, a tiny, very pretty and feminine Korean woman was tossing enormous black belt men over her shoulder. She was so serene, centered, and unruffled, she could have been rocking the baby with her other arm.
Another point to remember is that for a feminist just about any sex is rape. This includes consensual sex if the woman has second thoughts the day or week or month afterwards.
Classic example of the notion that all problems of society can be solved with "education."
If caught, a rapist will presumably ask, "Was that wrong? Should I not have done that?"
With possible rare exceptions where a rapist is legally insane, he knows it's wrong, or at least illegal, and he decides to do it anyway.
Oh, there is another possible exception where all parties are drunk or drugged and not really aware of what's going on. But doesn't seem likely education would be of much help there either.
Used to teach state-required CE classes in Ethics to insurance agents and adjusters. With very rare exceptions, everything discussed was perfectly obviously unethical. Nobody engaged in such behavior would be unaware they were doing wrong. But state legislatures would put in a requirement for Ethics education whenever an egregious example of insurance company wrongdoing came to light. As if ignorance of ethical obligations is the issue.
Wowsers. She actually looks feminine.
Since her name is Sanchez, I can only conclude that these femnazis hate Hispanics and people of color.
If they don't want to protect themselves then they just need to lay there and enjoy it.
I guess that feminists want others to protect them and keep them safe.
But doesn’t that defeat the purpose of being a feminist?
Don’t they want their independence from men and don’t they want combat assignments and doesn’t that require the use of lethal weapons?
If women were able to defend themselves and take full responsibility for their lives, why would they need the professional victimization crap that comes out of supposed feminist ‘s mouths?
I don't recall any claims at the time that by doing so she was enabling rapists.
No one should have to wear a seat belt in a car or a helmet on a bike. Neither should anyone take any preventive measures of any kind because here in Utopia everything is flowers and butterfly kisses
The common rant in the tweets is “teach men not to rape”
That gives rapists a built in defense for rape...Your honor I did commit the rape, but I’m still learning and have yet to graduate from the Do Not Rape course.
hang on. Women being able to kill a rapist means the rapist wins?
What kind of weirdo freak leftist thinking is that?
It’s offensive and awful and anti-woman to suggest that women not just lie there and let the rapist do it??
Other sure fire liberal praise makers would be.
Damned Koch Brothers !
Climate Change !
Hmmmm, looking at the statistics pertaining to rape, it looks like ........ the feminists and other libs probably don’t really want to have that “honest conversation” they are always crowing about. I don’t understand their problem with this, other than they hate pretty girls.
