There, there, Alex. I’m sure this is a situation that can be fixed by a couple cups of coffee. From another coffee shop. Send your brother to Starbucks.
or, you know, teach people not to rape other people…
Sadly, even if you teach people not to rape, they’ll do it anyway if they really want to, so these are still helpful in the event of rape, OR assault.
These self defense tips are not here to tell a person not to get raped, they are here to tell a person what to do in the event where someone is attempting to rape or assault them.
We do need to teach people not to rape, but we do not yet live in a world where rape and assault does not happen, and until we do, it’s important that we know how to protect ourselves in the event that it does happen.

This is something that some Navy SEALs taught girls in my gym class in high school. But there’s another rather effective (and kinda cool) tactic to use.
They used myself (A tall kid at the time, not very big but rather tall) and a rather skinny, tiny short girl for a demonstration. They had me grab the girl’s neck from behind—as pictured in the bottom left—and keep her in a tight headlock. Then the SEALs instructed the girl to drop to one knee and allow gravity to flip me over her shoulder onto my fucking head.
That’s right. No matter how small you might be, or how big and strong your attacker is, you can shift their center of gravity against them and flip them over shoulder with little to no effort on your part, allowing you time to land a blow and get the fuck out of there. And ever since then, I’ve taught my female friends that trick if time and circumstance ever allowed.
Stay safe, ladies.
Imma add another tip:
Pointer and middle finger right under the jaw and push up. Try it, it hurts like hell, and it will get them to lift their head up at which point you can kick or elbow loose.
That one, and under the nose, too. Place your thumb under it, and shove upward. They’ll either back off out of reflex, or you’ll break their nose. Plus, it will shatter their concentration, and they won’t be able to keep a grip on you, which will let you get loose, and give you an opportunity to either escape, or employ another tactic.
Everyone needs to see this. Spread it

Reblogging for that comment omfg
North Americans, get excited for the first blood moon of a tetrad that begins tomorrow (that may be the most cryptic sentence I’ve ever written).
A blood moon is the crimson consequence of a total lunar eclipse and takes its name from the color which the moon turns. The tetrad designation comes from four of these eclipses happening consecutively, they’ll be occurring throughout the next year and half and will all be viewable from North America.
If you’ve never seen a total lunar eclipse, it results in the moon turning the color of a fresh brick doused in gasoline, set to flame, and viewed through an atmosphere of Russian nesting dolls containing the smog of Los Angeles, Mexico City, and Beijing. The final scarlet shade at its peak is something that could have inspired a few swatches on Dalí’s palette (sí sí sí, mis amigos, Blood Moon Rojo, can you see it here in the jirafa ardiendo?).
The first time I saw a full lunar eclipse was sometime in August of 2007 at four in the morning in San Diego, California, standing outside a club where Eugene Hütz was performing a DJ set. We all wandered from the club to the street, our eyes fixed on the sky and our jaws resting on our chests. Gypsy music over 808s spilled out the front door while we quietly wondered who the magician was that stuffed equable Luna into his top-hat and pulled out ardent Mars. The moment smelled like fresh rose water and the dirty zils of an old tambourine and it’s something you can’t forget without the aid of an unlicensed neurosurgeon and a hammer-drill.
The forthcoming blood moon is occurring at 2am, April 15th, for the east coast of North America, and 11pm, April 14th, for the west coast and will peak an hour later. Mark your calendars. If you have the opportunity, it’s something you won’t want to miss.
The other three blood moons will occur on October 8th, 2014; April 4th, 2015, and September 28th, 2015. All four will be viewable from North America as long as the skies are clear.
