One of my friends posted this article on FB and I'm curious as to what others think about it. It's regarding a device a woman has invented, she thinks it may deter men from r*pe.
At first I thought it was a great idea, then when I read the article and pondered a bit I'm thinking it has some serious flaws. What do you think?

Wow. I agree though Miss Poss...I think there are definitely some
Negatives there - the main one being that it could instigate more violence towards the attacked woman resulting in a much worse (for lack of a better word) outcome.

No, it wouldnt work. Might stop rape from happening vaginally, but that opens the doors to anal rape and oral rape. Or the rapist may insert another object first to get rid of the possible deterrent. Or may make the rapist angry and kill/seriously injure the woman.
Nope, just would not work.

The situation in Africa is very different to here though, so this needs to be framed around Africa rather than globally. And as such, this is as good as anything they have so far.

I have lived in South Africa for 16 years of my life and I think its a wonderful idea. They hurt or kill you anyway after they have raped you there and in South Africa you always need to think the worse is gonna happen because it probably will. So I would say its a wonderful idea! Let them suffer!

I'm not sure how I feel about it.. I would be concerned about more violence to the victim but if the guy can't move then this may not be a problem. I don't like women thinking they may be a target each time they go out but maybe in certain areas with a high incidence of r*pe it may be worthwhile & more people will be caught if they have to go to a dr to remove it?
I may need some more time to ponder ...

Yeah I guess you have to think about it in the context of that particular culture.
One of my worries is that it could lead to a possibly more violent attack on the woman.
