Dear Ladies, don’t become a victim of the incredibly stupid ‘safety advice’ being proposed by Western Liberals of whatever stripe.
It’s a little-known fact of history that Mrs. St. George used to carry around with her a long pointed quill (we call them pens & pencils nowadays). Come those rare occasions (common when there is civil strife or invading armies) where rape, robbery and other molestation was in the air she would ferociously poke that pencil with mighty force into those soft parts of her attacker’s face and neck. It worked wonders on putting manners on the would-be rapists and robbers.
Just an historical anecdote, mind you. Don’t try it at home!
