I've been reading up on this for a few days and it's gotten both positive and negative feedback.


I personally think it's a good thing.

I think it's a good thing. There was some article about how it actually promotes rape culture? I'd like to think that, if this becomes popular, it will discourage people from trying to use date rape drugs. Much like if people all had that stuff in their pools that turns the water blue when you pee.

My mom and I were talking about this and thought it'd be an even better idea if they made those little stirrers for drinks, that could use similar technology to change color in the presence of date rape drugs. Keeps a few of those stinkers in your purse and do the ol switcharoo.

wait, I thought that was BS?!


And, I don't think it promotes rape culture, I think it shows the world how prevalent rape is and that it's kind of sad that this had to be invented in the first place.

I know I'm treading pretty dangerous water here but it seems some feminists are more concerned with destroying the concept of blaming the victim than they are about actually preventing people from becoming victims

I also think this is a better idea because it's not just women who are date raped. Some men are into wearing nail polish, but not all. Everyone should be able to protect themselves.

I understand their points even though I think this is a good tool. It's upsetting that when I go out, I always think, "keep your drink safe and do this and do that in order to not get raped."

Wren always wants me to text him when I get somewhere and when I'm leaving. I like it when he does the same, but I'm sure he's doing it out of fear of me being mugged and raped in an alley. I'm doing it so I can gauge the time it take him to get from point A to point B because I fear he'll get into a car accident.
