dawooster said: I think the 'problem' with the nail Polish is that its very existence is acknowledgement of a serious issue. The reaction is a symptom of 'out of sight out of mind'. If women don't have roofie detecting nail polish, then there mustn't be a need for it. By protesting the polish they're addressing a symptom but ignoring the disease. In theory it's well meaning, but in practice it's counter productive.
Oppressors will always point to the reaction to being oppressed because:
1. It takes attention away from the problem of the oppression itself.
2. It justifies the oppression.
case in point:
'see how violent those blacks [[protestors]] are being, if they weren't such thugs the police wouldn't need to frisk [[murder]] them in the first place!'
i don’t see why people think INVENTING THINGS TO PROTECT WOMEN advances rape culture. rape culture is something that is not going to be stopped any time soon so criticizing and advocating for not inventing products to help women feel safer leaves us girls high and dry! it’s a world where we are preyed on constantly and you know what if nailpolish can tell me if my drink is drugged you can bet i’ll be trying it out and telling my girls about it!
