Time well wasted

Hey Girl Hey
(title obviously stolen from Blake)

This is the U of A Police Dept. RAD (rape aggression defense) system pamphlet. Don't get me wrong - I'm all for women beating the crap out of rapists - I just think the picture could use some work.

What I've learned just by looking at the pamphlet

1) Women, do not wear baggy 80's shirts with pants that taper and have elastic ankles - they're just too sexy for rapists to resist.

2) Rapists are easy to spot
a. they have their left hand on their right arm, and vice versa.
b. they like to give hugs while leaning backwards
c. they wear shorts and ankle socks, but not the cool no show ones all the cool kids wear, the tall ones we used to wear back in middle school

3) Balancing yourself on one foot while doing the robot with your arms is the epitome of the ideal stance of aggression - if that does not disorient the rapist I don't know what will.

4) The mens restroom is an ideal location for rape prevention literature - especially when the class is only for women.

Stay safe ladies!

    Thank you for these tips, I was concerned for my safety before but now feel prepared to handle these types of situations.
    *note to self.. get rid of taperd pants and hang out in men's restrooms to learn safety tips....*

    Definitely a '90s pamphlet. They even have the savedbythebell-esque logo.

    It looks like she's marching into his open arms. My favorite part: the UAPDUAPD MS-DOS-style banner at the top.

    i thought that was a rape defense class for guys. ...the knuckle-clap seems like a good defense on paper.

    wow. excellent spot, i'm wondering, though, what it was like to use your camera in the men's bathroom. hopefully you were the only one in there, otherwise, i'm sure you also got some confused/strange looks.

    The guy also appears to be popping a tent, but who wouldn't in the presence of such hotness?
