”THROUGH A RAPIST’S EYES” (PLS TAKE TIME TO READ THIS. it may save a life.) Reblog this!
It seems that alot of attackers use some tactic to get away with violence. Not many people know how to take care of themselves when faced with such a
situation. Everyone should read this especially each n every girl in this world. THOUGHT THIS WAS GOOD INFO TO PASS ALONG…
FYI - Through a rapist’s eyes! A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:
1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle.
They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun! , braid, or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.
2] The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women who’s clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around to cut clothing.
3] They also look for women using their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.
4] The number one place women are abducted from / attacked at is grocery store parking lots.
5] Number two is office parking lots/garages.
6] Number three is public restrooms.
7] The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second location where they don’t have to worry about getting caught.
8] If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn’t worth it because it will be time-consuming.
9] These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas,or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands.
10] Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you’re not worth it.
POINTS THAT WE SHOULD REMEMBER:
1] If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk:
can’t believe it is so cold out here, we’re in for a bad winter. Now that you’ve seen their faces and could identify them in a line- up, you lose appeal as a target.
2] If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they’d leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would
not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target.
3] If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yelling I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent.
4] If someone grabs you, you can’t beat them with strength but you can do it by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow and
armpit or in the upper inner thigh - HARD. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it really hurts.
5] After the initial hit, always go for the groin. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy’s parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you’ll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our
instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause him a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble, and he’s out of there.
6] When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor did it to me without using
much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.
7] Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don’t dismiss it, go with your instincts. You may feel
little silly at the time, but you’d feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.
FINALLY, PLEASE REMEMBER THESE AS WELL ….
I know you are smart enough to know these pointers but there will be some, where you will go “hmm I must remember that” After reading forward it to someone you care about, never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.
1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do it.
2. Learned this from a tourist guide to New Orleans : if a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you…. chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or
purse than you and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car: Kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won’t see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.
4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON’T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side,put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU CLOSE the DOORS , LEAVE.
5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
a. Be aware: look around your car as someone may be
hiding at the passenger side , peek into your car, inside the passenger side floor, and in the back seat. ( DO THIS TOO BEFORE RIDING A TAXI CAB) .
b. If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
c. Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).
7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!
8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked “for help” into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.
Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it’s better safe than sorry.
DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT NOT REBLOGGING THIS! IT COULD ACTUALLY SAVE A LIFE.
Reblog this. Only the picture will appear on your blog.
Will never not reblog this. Saving this forever. There were so many things on here that are lincredibly useful. It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t match your theme!! Is that worth not saving someone’s life?? This is amazing.
I was just thinking and the fact that Ezra’s book said that Aria was in Iceland for three years really stuck out to me. I know some people think that he was saying that so it would be legal when they dated but I really think that it’s more that just that.
Then I remembered why that seemed so familiar to me. Aria actually was gone for three years in the books and the show changed it to one.
Therefore, what if Ezra’s book(s) are going to be the real PLL books by Sara. I dunno and I probably isn’t but I just think it would be kinda cool.
Anyone else think Aria is pregnant?
I mean, that would be a great twist and in the books I think Emily gets pregnant, but what if the writers changed it to Aria?
I thought this too! They also keep making references to how she slept with Ezra a lot. They could have had her say “but I was the only one who loved him” but no, they had to do “but I was the only one who SLEPT with him.” It just seemed a little weird to me…..
Throwback Saturday Lol remember when I made edits and I thought they were so good and so emotional wow
I really don’t think that Tyler will be back on PLL. Don’tget me wrong, I love Caleb so much and I’m going to miss him so much but it just wouldn’t make sense. At this point they still haven’t broken the curse and they cannot just pretend it didn’t happen. Also, PLL is running it’s course and season 5 will most likely be it’s last. They’ve probably got most of of 5A written or planned so if Tyler came back it would only be for a few episodes which wouldn’t make any sense.
If this happens than I guess the people who are celebrating right now will be a little disappointed….
I don’t get why people are saying that Miranda had a happy ending on Ravenswood! She thought original Caleb was modern Caleb and that’s why she was happy he said that he missed her and acted like they were in live. And he thought that she was original Miranda. They are both currently (and I guess forever) in a misunderstanding and living a lie….
During the black and white episode which was really just Spencer’s subconscious, what caught my attention was she kept repeating “I just want to sleep.” It even got to the point where it was almost like a trance. Also, there was that scene where Mona called about Hanna, Spencer was lying in bed and trying to sleep, but it wasn’t working.
I think this means that it has gotten to the point where Spencer no longer wants to take the pills and stay up all night finding A. It’s starting to torture her. But I believe that she is now 100% addicted and couldn’t stop if she tried.
This fact is going make the next few episodes, where everyone finds out she has been taking drugs, a little more interesting….
I’m not really sure Aria is on the A-team or at least I don’t think that she’s working with Ezra. Actually, I would love it if she was but things just don’t add up. I mean, if they were both A or evil together, why would Ezra make up that lie about the chickpeas to get her out of the house so he could go in the layer. And please don’t say that it was to get her to take pictures in Rosewood. Please, they were all alone so they you lent need to pretend like that. He could just tell her to go or she could say “Hey gonna go out and so some stalking” or something similar. I’m pretty sure that Aria’s innocent in all this, or at least she’s not Ezra’s accomplice.
