Colorado College Advises Vomiting Or Urinating To Stop Rapists After Lawmakers Pass Gun Control Bills

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Department of Public Safety has updated an online statement advising female students to consider a variety of unusual actions if they are attacked, including vomiting, urinating and claiming that they are menstruating.

The advisory was updated Monday evening, just hours after the Colorado state House of Representatives passed a package of gun control bills that includes one that would make it illegal for people with concealed weapons permits to carry guns on the campuses of public universities. The bills still have to go to the state Senate and governor.

Some of the pieces of advice which were updated Monday evening on the university’s public safety website are ones that many would find familiar, from running away without looking back to “yelling, hitting or biting” your attacker.

But the following two suggestions are a little stranger and are already causing quite the outcry on social media: “Tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating,” and “Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone.”

These less-conventional methods for fighting off a would-be rapist are apparently part of Rape Aggression Defense Systems, a class that the school’s public safety department promotes as a means for female students to boost their self-defense skills.

But the fact that the site providing the pointers was updated at 6:30 p.m. Monday suggests that the move may have been motivated by the Colorado House’s passage on Monday of HB 1226, which would ban all people — including concealed-weapons permit holders — from carrying guns on the campuses of the state’s public universities.

The House passed the bill on Monday by a vote of 34-31, but not before it became the center of a major controversy when Democratic state Rep. Joe Salazar made commentsduring Friday’s debate arguing that students should not have access to guns to protect themselves from being raped.

“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles,” Salazar said, according to KDVR News. “Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop — pop around at somebody.”

The comments drew the ire of a number of conservative pundits, as well as several Republican Colorado lawmakers who were offended by the insinuation that would-be rape victims should rely on rape whistles and safe zones rather than arm themselves against potential attackers.

    to be fair, most “progressive” females would only improve their looks and or smell by vomiting or urinating on themselves.

    AFter listing eight suggestions a female student could choose to try and prevent the impending rape…

    9. Understand that some actions on your part might lead to more harm.

    10. Remember, every emergency situation is different. Only you can decide which action is most appropriate.”

    And if you choose the wrong multiple choice answer, ‘Oh well, you just flunked the test.’ Don’t blame us.

    So barfing or peeing on your attacker is now the preferred way to stave off a rapist. What a joke, I’ve always told my daughters to haul off and break an attackers kneecap or nose or to zip their pecker up as fast as they can to totally incapacitate them. I have no problem with either carrying a gun and blowing the bastard away or carrying mace (I would) and my future son in law has a black belt in karate and he’s not afraid to protect my daughter. I swear we’re living in the world of Harrison Bergeron. Where’s the handicapper in chief to make everything equal so no one can be raped.

    Beck had a field day with this report this morning.

    Passive resistance? WTF is passive resistance? Wearing a button with the word RAPE and the International circle symbol of NO around it? Like a cross to a vampire, that button will thwart an attacker?

    These people are truly brain dead – so focused on their narrow-minded ideological causes, that they have no idea how ridiculous and assenine they sound.

    If I had a daughter I can assure you that as soon as she were able to handle a firearm she would have learned, and when old enough to have a pistol license, she would have had the license and a nice pocket .380.

    My response to this lunacy, “So Mr. Salazar, if a woman is about to be raped and she runs into a “SAFE ZONE”, she can turn to the rapist and declare he can’t touch her because she is in the zone??????” Sounds like a little kid playing tag and declaring he cannot be tagged because he is on home base.

    I hear by declare all crime ridden areas infested by “youths” in Colorado to be “SAFE ZONES”. Now this idiot Joe Salazar can walk into these areas and feel secured that he cannot be a victim of crime.

    The healthiest and most cost-effective thing to do, as history has proven, is just shoot the bastard. That way he won’t get a chance to rape whatever fool is ignorant enough to take stupid advise from lawmakers.

    Outlaw lawmakers now!

    To the imbeciles at the Co. Dept. of Public Safety (a hysterical misnomer): the only bodily discharge will be from the would-be rapist/attacker after I’ve discharged my Glock into his person.

    Ok, so this borederline pyscho (frankly, any rapist is borderline crazy) explodes in rage when his victim follows this guideline and pees herself and he kills her. You know this will happen at some point and probably at a rate that would astound so I wonder whether this University Committee or that asshole Salazar will be called to account.

    I majored in criminal justice in 1990 and 1991. The warnings that Colorado gave from from an OLD FBI warnings to do in case of rape. I gave a speech showing that with power assertive rapist this can make them mad and you be subject to extreme injury’s. Also the FBI said to scream as loud as you can. If you are in the woods shat good would it do? Heres a good warning. If you get in your car in a parking lot like Walmart and a voice from your back seat says ” drive off or I will kill you” what would you do? Answer, throw your keys out the window. He wants you to leave the busy area in order to do what he wants, he cannot do it there. Also have pepper spray in your hand when walking alone
