What a rapist looks for in women he wants to attack!Author: Kim Lesko
Women all over the world should take the time to read this article. It can only help you.
These listed items are from an interview that was held in a prison with a group of rapists and date rapists. They unfolded what it is they like to see when choosing there potential victims.
1] The obvious thing these men pointed out was the hair of the victim. They are most likely going to go after the woman with longer hair that\'s tied back into a ponytail, braid or bun. They choose this styling as it\'s the easiest to grab and get a good hold. Short haired women are not common targets.
2] These men also pointed out that clothing is the next item on their list when searching for victims. Women who wear clothing that appears to be easy to get off take the number one spot. Tube tops, strapless shirts, skirts, any clothing of this type. These rapist also admitted to carrying a pair of scissors around with them to cut off the clothing if necessary.
3] Now this is the most common error women can make, you see this all the time, it\'s worrisome. Talking on your cellphone while walking, looking oblivious to what\'s going on around you. Searching through your purse and/or carrying a bunch of packages/bags in one hand while consuming the other with your phone. This makes women the easiest of targets for anyone who wants to violate them because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.
4] We found out that the number one place most women are abducted from or attacked at is the grocery store parking lots. Pay close attention to your surroundings, who you are parked next to, type of vehicle it is, etc.
5] Number two is office parking lots and/or garages. If your place of employment requires you to park in such lots you need to either have someone walking out with you if possible or you need to be carrying self defense devices as pepper sprays, stun guns or taser guns for sure. These garages especially are isolated and dark.
6] Believe it or not public restrooms made it to this list in the #6 spot. Careful ladies. These offenders are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second location where they don\'t have to worry about getting caught. Keep this in mind and fight for your life.
7] If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn\'t worth it because it will be time-consuming.
8] These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas, or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands. Carrying aStun Baton or Steel Baton would fit the bill perfectly.
9] The idea here is to try and convince these guys you\'re not worth the trouble for them. Fight back with all you have.
These next pointers are great tools to keep in your mind to go by:
1] If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk: can\'t believe it is so cold out here, we\'re in for a bad winter. Now that you\'ve seen their faces and could identify them in a line- up, you lose appeal as a target.
2] If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they\'d leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target.
3] If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yelling I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent.
4] If someone grabs you, you can\'t beat them with strength but you can do it by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow and armpit or in the upper inner thigh - HARD. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it really hurts.
5] After the initial hit, always go for the groin. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy\'s parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you\'ll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause him a lot of
trouble. Start causing trouble, and he\'s out of there.
6] When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor did it to me without using much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked
7] Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don\'t dismiss it, and go with your instincts. You may feel little silly at the time, but you\'d feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.
