have you guys seen the article about Rapex floating around on facebook?
Rape has become a pandemic in South Africa, so a medical technician named Sonette Ehlers developed a product that immediately got national attention there. Ehlers had never forgotten a rape victim telling her formerly, " If only i had teeth down there."
Some time afterward, a man came into the hospital where Ehlers works in excruciating pain because his penis was stuck in his zipper.
Ehlers merged those images and came up with a product she called RAPEX. It resembles a tube, with barbs inside. The woman inserts it like a tampon, with an applicator, and any man who tries to rape the woman impales himself on the barbs and must go to an emergency room to have the RAPEX removed.
When critics complained that it was a medieval punishment, Ehlers replied tersely, " A medieval device for a medieval deed."
( this was in half the sky written by Nicholas Kristof)
wow! there's also a picture of it, it looks like a condom almost but with sharp teeth on the inside. what are your thoughts on this?
