حقنا في الكلام

الكلمة ايد
الكلمة رجل
الكلمة باب
الكلمة نجمة كهربية في الضباب
الكلمة كوبري صلب فوق بحر العباب
الجن يا احباب
ما يقدر يهزموا
فاتكلموا
اتكلموا
اتكلموا

The Justice System is in Snooze Mode

I still maintain the belief that desperate times call for desperate measures. News has been traveling fast about the latest public case of sexual harassment where blogger Asser Yasser was the victim. It is now evident (just as I had expected) that the law in Egypt is not designed to protect the victim. Not only that, but it seems that the trial was a total farce, as told to me by Asser herself. The judge dismissed the case without listening to any testimony from the plaintiff's side, and returned with a non guilty verdict for the offender. This is a slap on the face to every sexual crime victim out there.

Ladies, I implore you. Take it from someone who's been there. Carry a weapon. I can't stress it enough. If you don't like guns, then carry pepper spray, or use a stun gun. Learn how to defend yourself. The only way to prevent sexual assault is by NOT becoming a victim. If you cannot obtain a weapon, then learn some self defense techniques.

Use the weapons mother nature gave you. Be loud and scream. Don't yell rape. Instead yell FIRE. People respond more readily to the threat of fire.

Commit yourself 100% to the fight and forget your fear. Use it to stay alive. Use your fear to fuel your anger. Be angry and be vigilant about your survival.

The quickest way to incapacitate an assailant is his eyes. Steal his vision. Press hard with your thumbs in his eye socket to pop his eyes out. Or learn the more efficient method. Put a car key in your palm and make a fist while the key sticks out. Use your fist with the key to cut his eyes out.

Bite hard with your teeth, enough to tear flesh. If you bite hard enough you will crush bone. It is easier than you think.

Use your elbows and use your head against his nose and face. Crush his nose with your head.

Dig your heels in his genitals. It's one of the most vulnerable areas of the body along with the kidneys. Kick his sides where his kidneys are. If you kick hard enough you will rupture some of his organs. Do whatever you can to incapacitate him.

Be savage, be violent, and be safe. But most importantly, be prepared. Because the justice system does not have your back.

I realize that many will find my advice rather distasteful, but like I said, desperate times call for desperate measures. There are others who view it similarly too.

I agree with your advice. Avoid dark streets, walk in the middle of the road where there is the most light. Keep your keys in your hand so you can stab anyone if they get too close. Run when you can too.
Don't become a victim or another statistic.

انا صدمت واصبت بصداع
يعني ايه غير مذنب
خلاص بقى الشارع المصري غابة؟
وبننصح الستات ازاي يفقعوا عين المتحرش
وازاي يستخدموا الضربة القاضية وادوات السيلف ديفينس
والله مش لاقية وصف للحالة اللي انا فيها
متخيلة الشارع المصري وهو متحول لحلبة مصارعة
وكل بنت اوست لابسة خوذة او درع
وشايلة حقيبة ضخمة تكفي لكل اسلحة الدفاع عن النفس وكل بنت ماسكة واحد موقعاه في الارض بتكسر ضلوعه ابو بتقضي عليه بالضربة القاضية
اللي تخليه يتوب ويحرم يعاكس ولا يبص لفرخة ماشية في الشارع
يمكن صورة هزلية نتيجة حالة الهزيان اللي اصابتني لما قريت البوست ده
شكرا على نقله
وكل مواساتي لاسور وباقول لها برضو ما تستسلميش

I am not sure if you agree or disagree with the post. I could not quite understand if you were being sarcastic or upset. What bothered you about the post (if anything)?

Jessyz
Agreed. I believe that's the key; not to become a victim. I hope for the best but expect the worst. Nothing can beat being prepared.

there was a situation that happens to a friend of mine she was going home where her house is located in a far small village she was in a toktok (avery small vechile) the toktok driver acted strangely which make her and her friends very afraid they thought he is gone kidnap them or something then my friend took a cutter from her Page and show it to him telling her friends in a loud voice that she is ready to use it if he do any thing ...he got back on the right way immediately

Great work and You nead to launch an ongoing public awareness campaign to educate Egyptians about the risk of Sexual harassment and assault in public .Now how we all can do this ?! it is a long story..

Excellent post.
I also agree that we must carry what I call mild weapons. I read on wikipedia that whatever weapon you carry to protect u from sexual harassment, beware that it might turn against you. So it's better to carry a pepper spray or even a body spray as I always do.
Always keep your fingernails long. Always.
Thank you for your valuable pieces of advice.
