I’M SO FUCKING SICK OF THIS SHIT. PLEASE, as a Canadian, I beg my followers to help spread this link. IF YOU ARE CANADIAN, FOLLOW THE LINK AND SEND IN A LETTER! It’s super easy, will only take 30 seconds.
What the fuck? Why is this the first time I am hearing about this!?
Ya’aburnee Arabic – Both morbid and beautiful at once, this incantatory word means “You bury me,” a declaration of one’s hope that they’ll die before another person because of how difficult it would be to live without them.
We have a word that is similar to this one, only instead it’s “I bury you” a declaration of one’s hope that they’ll die before another person because of how difficult it is to live with them.
This is what my pepper spray looks like. For the record, I didn’t buy it for myself, my parents got it for me. As I was walking out of Wal Mart tonight, without it, it donned on me on how fucked up it is. Not only the fact that I need the weapon itself, but it’s color.
It’s like, we’re trying to make rape culture cutesy. Same goes for pink tazers. Pink handguns. We’re trying to make these weapons adorable in order to distract ourselves from the reason we carry them: to prevent ourselves from attackers.
Not only that, but the pink is geared toward women (or people who identify as women). There isn’t any blue, masculine mace. Why? Because men aren’t the ones who carry it around. How fucking terrible is that? “Here you go, you cute little girls, here’s a pink weapon to protect yourself from potential rapists and/or murderers.” It’s furthering the idea that rape and violence towards women is acceptable. It’s saying because our ways of protecting ourselves are cute and stylish, we’re harmless. Weapons should never make a fashion statement.
wow calm down
but you can buy a normal can of mace or a typical hand gun or tazer tho
see look they exist
i’m pretty sure theres an option on color. no one said OH ITS A FEMALE SHE MUST REALLY WANT PINK. if they did then yeah thats fucked up but
fucking buy something thats not pink and dont make a fuss about it jfc
Also fun fact, one of the reasons they use “girly” colors, and more fashionable containers is to make it less noticeable as a weapon.
What would you notice more?
Both do the same thing, only if you pull out the less obvious one, usually you’ll get the option of surprise.
