NEW: Anti-Rape Underwear

AR WEAR Invents “Anti-Rape” Underwear 

images (1)

We developed this product so that women and girls could have more power to control the outcome of a sexual assault. We wanted to offer some peace of mind in situations that cause feelings of apprehension, such as going out on a blind date, taking an evening run, “clubbing”, traveling in unfamiliar countries, and any other activity that might make one anxious about the possibility of an assault.

We believe that the tools of self-defense currently available are not effective in many common settings of sexual assault. Training in martial arts or products such as pepper spray, tear gas, stun guns, etc. can only help if the potential victim is extremely alert and bold when an attack occurs. Worse still, products of self-defense can be taken from the victim and used against her.

We read studies reviewing the statistics of resisting assault, whether by forceful or non-forceful means. We learned that resistance increases the chance of avoiding a completed rape without making the victim more likely to be physically injured. We concluded that an item of clothing that creates an effective barrier layer can allow women and girls to passively resist an attacker, in addition to any other form of resistance they may be able to carry out at the time of an assault.

Our goal is to offer a wide range of wearable items, which will include assorted types and styles of underwear, running shorts, traveling shorts, etc., suitable for different situations and the styles of individual users. The challenge was to design products that can be worn comfortably while still being able to frustrate an assault effectively. The garments must be very difficult for someone else to remove by either force or stealth (in situations where the victim cannot resist because she has had too much to drink, was drugged, or is asleep). They needed to be resistant to pulling, tearing and cutting while being comfortable to wear during normal activities and, as in the case of underwear, fit smoothly under form-fitting outer clothing…and we think we’ve developed that!

Child Killer Up For Parole

Posted by Sandra On December - 4 - 2013 Comments Off

Please sign the petition to help block his parole

Partin_parolepageShane Partin stalked and eventually killed 15-year-old Cassandra Blondheim. While a dying Cassandra lay on the floor begging for help Partin then held those trying to help her at bay with a knife. After his arrest, rather than taking responsibility for his crime, he blamed his actions on “evil spirits”. Partin now wants to be freed after serving the bare minimum of his 15-year to Life sentence. Releasing Shane Partin would be a complete injustice to Cassandra Blondheim and would demean his cruelty to her. In addition, releasing Partin would pose an incredible risk to the young girl or woman who becomes his next obsession. In order to further the interests of justice and protect society, and due to senseless and violent nature of Partin’s crime, we urge the Ohio Parole Board to give Partin the maximum continuance of 10 years before his next parole hearing.

New XBox Can See Genitalia

Posted by Sandra On November - 16 - 2013 Comments Off

New Kinect Xbox Sees Genitalia Almost Like TSA Scanners 

dongThere is concern about the privacy of the new gaming Kinect Xbox. The Kinect device, to be sold in combination with the XBox One, has the ability to map out in high-definition the shape of genitalia, which could ultimately be exploited by hackers and perverts to gain access to images of children, according to Infowars.

“The NSA has worked deals with most of technology companies like Microsoft and Google to spy on Americans. There is no reason not to believe that the Kinect Xbox isn’t connected to the NSA spying database and the NSA is mapping these Xbox images from your home to their database,” said an engineer who helped develop one of the largest gaming web sites. “It could be that Microsoft uses the camera technology in low quality mode but has ability for even higher quality images. We don’t know.”

Many parents are uncomfortable with possible strangers or the NSA taking pictures of their family in the living room and even more so with the Kinect Xbox seeing genitalia like the unconstitutional TSA scanners. READ MORE HERE

Video of the man engaging in sexually explicit activities with a child were discovered online in April 2013 by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), and those images are still circulating in child pornography forums across the Internet. The video shows a glimpse of John Doe 27, which investigators hope will lead to his identification—and the recovery of the exploited child. “These types of individuals typically don’t stop with one victim,” said Special Agent Shanna Daniels, who is investigating the case. “That’s why we need to catch him before other children are victimized.” READ MORE HERE

Detecting Child Sex Abuse

Learn how to detect and deal with child sexual abuse

13310_112540282090645_100000040210270_271211_4985731_nAny one sign does not mean that a child was sexually abused, but the presence of several suggests that you begin asking questions and consider seeking help. Parents can help keep their children safe by teaching them the correct terminology to describe their body parts and what kind of touching and interaction is off-limits. But, sometimes even this is not enough. Below is a list of some of the more prominent signs of child molestation/sexual abuse…

 

 

 

 

 

Behavior you may see in a child or adolescent:

    • Has nightmares or other sleep problems without an explanation
    • Seems distracted or distant at odd times
    • Has a sudden change in eating habits
    • Refuses to eat
    • Loses or drastically increases appetite
    • Has trouble swallowing
    • Sudden mood swings: rage, fear, insecurity, or withdrawal
    • Leaves “clues” that seem likely to provoke a discussion about sexual issues
    • Develops new or unusual fear of certain people or places
    • Refuses to talk about a secret shared with an adult or older child
    • Writes, draws, plays, or dreams of sexual or frightening images
  • Talks about a new older friend
  • Suddenly has money, toys, or other gifts without reason
  • Thinks of self or body as repulsive, dirty, or bad
  • Exhibits adult-like sexual behaviors, language, and knowledge

All of the warning signs listed above are general indicators of sexual abuse in children. Many children do not actually disclose what happened; it is up to attentive adults to recognize hints. However, if you suspect a child has been abused by seeing these indications, please seek help immediately.  READ MORE HERE
