How to Avoid Being Raped? Just Say No

As they circle the drain, Western societies increasingly start to seem like parodies of real civilizations. It’s as if, to twist Shakespeare’s famous line, all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players in a really bad comedy that won’t get past its first season. The latest chapter is a Finnish anti-rape video that, writes Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer, teaches women that all they “have to do to keep from being raped is turn around, hold out their hand in a ‘halt’ gesture and say ‘Stop!’”

The video, shown below, portrays a woman being approached from behind by a man who appears to be a native Finn (maybe Huck Finn?) because, as we all know, Finnish men have suddenly decided to start preying on their women. The fact that the rising rate of sexual assault and concern about it coincide with the influx of Muslims into Finland is purely coincidental, I tell ya’.

In the video, the woman holds up her hand assertively shouting “Stop!” or “No!” and the alleged rapist backs off, completely cowed. Of course, though, I can’t speak Finnish, so I’m taking Spencer’s word for it on what’s being related in the video. But other possibilities do suggest themselves. Perhaps the women is,

    • using a Jedi mind trick: “No, you don’t want to rape me. You don’t want to rape me. You don’t want to rape me,” prompting the miscreant to back off, confused and repeating trance-like, “I don’t want to rape you.”
    • is saying, “I’ve told you thrice already, I don’t have the time!”
    • is telling her boyfriend, “No, Sven, I’m not going to show this video to the authorities and back up your claim you’re a Muslim migrant just so you can get more government benefits!”
    • is stating, “I don’t care if you’re going to visit San Francisco. You can’t borrow this purse.”
    • is protesting, “Don’t tell me where to go, that I shouldn’t walk into the Arab section. That’s patriarchal and Islamophobic!”

When the woman performs her arm movements, she also reminds me of a stewardess (if this offends people who now insist on the term “flight attendant,” good!) giving the pre-flight explanation of how to use the inflatable life jacket under your seat. And, interestingly, the kind of people likely to accost a woman in Finland can also be voted most likely to bring down an airplane.

It appears that Nordic countries are competing hard for the Darwin Award. Sweden currently is the top contender, but the others aren’t giving up on the race to the bottom. And whether it’s Sweden, Norway or some other land that reaches the nadir first, it’s not unreasonable to say they’re all Finnished.

    I saw this over at AT this morning. This possibly tops Pajama Boy as the most laughingly shocking look at the Leftist/Progressive mindset.

    “Just say no” was mocked when Nancy Reagan said it regarding drugs. But apparently that’s all women need to do regarding a potential rapist. If women keep voting for these Leftist/Progressives freaks then they will get what the deserve. And I suspect this attitude sits behind at least some of the passiveness among European men who have no desire to come to the aid of women as the Islamic barbarians molest them.

    The real answer is to keep the rapists out, but the Eurocrats (for various reasons) refuse to consider that answer. So now the maxim is: When in Helsinki, do as the Syrians do. We see this in Rome (covering up nudes in a museum) and in St. Paul (catering to Somali sensibilities at the expense of Americans). And many other places as well as the Raspail scenario comes true.

      I still can’t help coming back to the religious analogy. And I’m not mocking religion (at least Christianity). But consider that there are passages in the bible of devout believers who willingly were martyred. They believed (and not without some cause) that temporal matters were secondary to other matters.

      Now you have the Left, in what Dennis Prager describes as the world’s most dynamic religion, willing to sacrifice themselves in fidelity to their beliefs. Where I find the one (Christianity) to be meaningful I find the latter to just be perverse.

    A friend, a rural policeman in the wilds of CA, once told me that he stopped a burglar in his tracks with the phrase, “stop or I will put a booger on you”. I believe the story, however the friend also had his weapon drawn.

    I have heard that projectile vomiting can be a deterrence also.

    • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

      I don’t doubt that the threat of booger might do it. I would suspect that anything that throws the would-be attacker out of their comfort zone might do it.

      We now live in a mad, mad, mad, mad, mad, mad world. The Finnish anti-rape video goes completely against the feminist message. When it comes to rape — in any and all circumstances — it is said to be never the woman’s fault. But in this video, we see the onus being put on women. If they will only use the correct body language and hand gestures, they can stop a rapist.

      No thought is given to noting the Islamic barbarians that Europe has been importing by the millions who view Western women as fair game.

      Much like global warming, ideology trumps reality. It’s already been shown, through various past events, that race trumps gender in the victimology game. Blackness comes before female victimology. We also see that Islamic victimology trumps female victimology.

      If you are a woman living in the EU, why do you continue to vote for this Religion of Leftism (under many names) that rates you so lowly? In essence, what the Finnish video is telling you gals is that if you get raped, you deserve it. It’s your fault for not giving the right signs and signals. It’s a message that contradicts their own feminist stereotypes and slogans.

      It’s a feminist talking-point that a scantily-clad woman who is raped is said by the regressive, male-dominated society to “deserve it.” And this is exactly the message of this video. There is no blame cast on Islamic barbarians who are systematically preying on Western women. The onus is on the women. If you don’t do the right hand signals then it’s on you.

      • Timothy Lane says:

        An important point to note here is that not only do liberals in general allow race (including being a Muslim) to trump gender in their victimology rankings (although gender identity may be at the top), but the feminists who claim to speak for women go along with this. Of course, their main concern is abortion, and so far the Muslim invasion hasn’t restricted their access to it.

    Perhaps the only thing which will get Germany to reconsider its no-so-slow suicide by Muslim immigration. It hurts business.
