    Knives are terrible why. Because people constantly cut themselves while trying to cut someone else. Your hand slips down the handle onto the blade. Seriously not joking. Former Soviet army SO has had personal experience with this.

    Knives are literally the worst possible self defense tool.

    You know what really works if you want to stick someone? Just a pointy thing. Even if your hand slips while you stab, you don't cut yourself. Women used to use 10 inch hairpins so effectively in the 1920s they were banned in the US.

    Screwdrivers (Phillips or Flathead) work really well. So do paint can openers (youd thing not with the curved top but they can puncture soft skin easily) and knitting needles. Pencils, pens, anything pointy at one end works.

    But, really its amazing the kind of damage you can do with your bare fingers.

    For example: Grab someone by the lower lip and pull down. You will rip their lower lip off. Grab the corner/back of the ear and tear will pulling forward, you can rip someones ear off. Stick fingers in eyes and nostrils permanent damage to both. Flat palm strike to the nose, break their nose. Pinch the back of the arm and pull, you can tear the flesh on the back of the arm. Merely graze the balls with your palm, and you can cause excruciating pain to males. If you know how to do finger holds and wrist holds you can break peoples bones easily.

    "Tactical knives" are bullshit. They only work effectively when they are screwed to the end of a bayonet. Then you can stab really well, with minimal risk to yourself. Better to get a machete.

    [–] You’ll hurt your uterus! BestGarbagePerson 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    People who sign up for these studies are doing so because they need it. Not everyone who undergoes menopause desires or needs HRT, in fact like I stated its not just for anyone. How can you be so obstinate? Seriously.

    [–] You’ll hurt your uterus! BestGarbagePerson 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Being in the HRT trial would not necessarily mean they have a pre-existing condition

    They would be taking it as they needed it, so yes, being in that trial would rule that the majority of people needed it, that they did have a pre-existing condition.

    You don't just take HRT you don't need unless you need it. HRT has serious complications and side effects. We're not talking about birth control here, we're talking about literal complete hormone replacement therapy.

    You're so full of shit u/lamamaloca.

    You're original comment that 14-40% of women suffer uterine prolapse is a complete LIE.

    Stop lyin'. You should either edit your comment or delete it.

    [–] You’ll hurt your uterus! BestGarbagePerson 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Older women undergoing hormone replacement therapy which is an even more strict subset. This isn't just "older women in general." This is older women already needing extra treatment for pre-existing conditions.

    Secondly as you stated, they are counting those who have both (or more than one) as two (or more) counts of prolapse! The highest rate for uterine in that population is below 15%. Stop. Just stop.

    Do you understand how totally disingenuous you were being in your original comment? You should either delete it or re-edit it, it's really misleading and perpetuating myths that are not correct.

    [–] You’ll hurt your uterus! BestGarbagePerson 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I didn't round that up.

    Do you understand that 34.3 does not round up to 40? Where are you getting 40%?

    That's the highest percentage for one kind of prolapse, women often have more than one kind.

    What the fuck are you talking about? Do you understand what your own study is even saying? Do you not understand how fractions work?

    Your article is about post-menopausal and other hormonal compromised women who are engaging in hormone replacement therapy trials!

    This is, by your own article's words, predominately older women who may not even have a uterus anymore, which is why their bladder begins to prolapse due to the gap this causes in their musculature. OMFG.

    It's not about all women, and no, even if you could have MORE THAN ONE TYPE OF PROLAPSE, that does not equal to 40% of women having ANY TYPE. OMFG. CAN YOU EVEN UNDERSTAND BASIC STATISTICS?

    She would need a name for a restraining order, which she already said she doesn't have

    My mistake I thought OP said she had tracked him down on facebook?

    No it's been broken for much longer than that. Take some US History and you will understand that.

    But as a US person who has friends and family from Ukraine, fuck Putin and fuck Russia, and fucking yes, they kill dissidents. #Nemtsov #Voronenkov, #Barburova #Litvinenko and more.

    [–] The Mike Pence Rule BestGarbagePerson 0 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Only 2% of rape allegations are false. So what you're saying is, its all about protecting the abusers rather than catching them.

    No really you've won the title of useless rant of the day. That's not an ad hominem. You've attacked someone who agrees with you about your "issues" over literally less than nothing. You done played yourself.

    [–] I'm afraid of my rapist, I'm sorry I get downvoted on every sub but I REALLY need advice someone help me BestGarbagePerson 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    No it wasn't anyone with a brain can tell I'm talking about both.

    But get a fucking gun too.

    Fucking cray cray. Let OP decide. Are you truly that mad at me for saying let OP decide? I personally think it's also a great idea to get a gun, but if you're super anxious all the time and never handled one before? Go the fucking range first!

    Stop negating that.

    You're making up shit that doesn't exist about an argument that isn't there. I'm super pro 2a, but I'm also super sensitive to the haplophobia and ignorance that a lot of people have about it as well as the expense. It's up to OP and she should not just go buy a gun not having ever shot one before!

    Also seriously, I'll downvote you right back IDGAF.

    [–] I'm afraid of my rapist, I'm sorry I get downvoted on every sub but I REALLY need advice someone help me BestGarbagePerson 2 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I honestly can only think you're mad at me because I dared to say OP should go to a range first if she's never shot a gun and decide for herself. Or are you suggesting OP just go buy a gun having never handled one? Or are you mad that I'm letting OP decide for themselves? FTFY.

    Oh, fuck this bullshit straight to hell.

    You know what fuck this. Who the fuck are you? Are you any type of coach or counselor or expert on safety?

    You clearly aren't.

    OP doesn't need anymore extraneous anxiety. Radical acceptance will help her achieve more than any action she can take. Her being a catatonic mess everyday will NOT help her take the steps she needs for her to prepare for her own safety.

    AND YES FUCK YOU DASHCAMS AND NANNYCAMS ARE FUCKING AMAZING AND I CAN TESTIFY FOR THAT. I'VE ALSO USED A GUN TOO. AND A TAZER. AND PEPPER SPRAY.

    SO FTFY.

    Psychological preparedness is SUPER IMPORTANT. So here you are making some other fucked up argument that I don't even know what it is (since you merely replied as a detractor to mine - a holier-than-thou who the fuck are you?.) and you DONT EVEN UNDERSTAND THIS MOST MOST BASIC CONCEPT.

    Because you know what you are right, sometimes you're seriously fucked and have no choice but to face awful odds.

    But you and society and your loved ones, deserve you at your best anyway. Did you even read OP's own words on how anxious they are?

    You can stop possible futures by preparing for them.

    You seriously didn't read SHIT of the comment I linked you to you did you? You have NO EXCUSE. You want to explain why you didn't and are full of such baseless rage right now? What happened to you? What's the matter with YOU? Tell us.

    Never, ever again repeat this shit. It is toxic stupidity.

    You are so fucking wrong about not only self defense preparedness from a performance standpoint (or any type of preparedness, be it interviews or sports competitions or driving to work etc) but about anxiety and PTSD.

    Seriously you are the toxic element here. STeverlovingwasteofaFU. Seriously. Waste. Of. Space. Congrats you win stupidest internet comment of the day.

    Im not really sure who you are arguing against or what exactly you are arguing against?

    How does what I said A, connect to what you said B. Please clarify.

    I defined empowerment specifically in another comment here where I was directly talking to OP:

    Self empowerment is not about stopping any possible future. Because you can't. At all. Self empowerment is about empowering yourself in the now yet radically accepting all. Prepare for the worst, hope for the best. Stay aware and be alert.

    Source:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/TwoXChromosomes/comments/8yq24p/im_afraid_of_my_rapist_im_sorry_i_get_downvoted/e2d9k1z/?context=3

    So, I mean you're not wrong, but your comment is unnecessary. OP is getting the best I can give. : )

    Self Empowerment is not the same as Power. Two completely different concepts.

    I cannot define ultimately what is empowering for OP, but I can give her ideas.

    Edit: can I ask you why you downvoted me?

    [–] Sure. I'd love to blow water straight into your wall outlet. BestGarbagePerson 1 points ago in CrappyDesign

    Ugh you can see the dark streak of fecal matter concentrated from the blower onto the wall.

    BTW, that's what blowers do - they take the bathroom air already filled with fecal particles and suck it into their blower and blow it back on your hands.

    It's why I never use them.

    Temporary restraining orders are free. Go get one at the courthouse now, like NOW. If you need help preparing yourself for one (and making sure your intent to and desire for ceasing and desisting all contact with this person is solid) , contact your local domestic violence hotline (or go to the shelter) and they will walk you through the process... There should be several available hotlines in your local area if you google them. If unsure consider contacting RAINN.

    Dashcams and nannycams are about 50-100 bucks each. But I'll tell you right now, I was poor at the time but it was one of the best investments I ever made.

    As far as self defense, pepper spray is ideal for outdoors, tazers for indoors. PM me if you want some nasty things to do to attackers who are grabbing you.
