The womanly art of self-defense
If feminists are serious about empowering women against violence and sexual assault, their time and money would be far better spent organizing (and advertising widely!) subsidized defensive handgun classes for women than putting on hostile, exclusionary marches. Unfortunately it appears that the feminist movement is too wedded to the political left the main group pushing gun control to consider that seriously as a primary strategy.
Given my own position on gun control I'll control mine, you control yours I'm thinking this is (1) an excellent idea and (2) therefore not likely to be considered by the blah-blah sisterhood.Posted at 10:47 AM to Table for One
