I came across an interesting article about the need for
pepper spray on campus. It was in the Shorthorn, the
University of Texas at Arlington campus newspaper.
The guy who wrote it made a comment that was a little
He said, “The other part of me is extremely offended
that we have become desensitized, and it’s no big deal for
women to be more in need of pepper sprays, instead of
looking to deter such inappropriate, aggressive and
dangerous behavior in possible criminals.”
I understand what he means, but he’s living in the “can’t
we all just get along” fantasy world.
Pepper spray IS a deterrent to such inappropriate, aggressive
and dangerous behavior.
And, he’s so politically correct, that he can’t even come out
and call people who commit inappropriate, aggressive and
dangerous behavior, criminals. No, they are possible
I can guarantee that if every woman on campus carried a
pepper spray and used in on “possible criminals’ this would
have a long term effect of deterring possible criminals.
Better yet, shoot a few of them and that would definitely
cut down on the campus attacks.
I put a link to the article on my Facebook page if you want
to read it or use it in your own marketing.
Have a great and safe weekend. There be dragons out there!
