About the roofies nail polish thing

I understand where people are coming from when they say it’s not fair to girls, since we should definitely be trying to create a culture where men don’t attack women. 

The thing is, they do. 

And it’s idealistic to think that we can educate all of the men who do these heinous acts to change and that sexual assaults will completely disappear. They won’t. Besides, changing society takes time. The nail polish certainly isn’t a dream solution, or a solution at all. But it’ll help protect women and make them feel safe. It’s a “meantime” thing- we’ll try to change society, but in the meantime, we’ll use this to help us stay safe. 

As someone who has been almost raped and kidnapped, (though not under circumstances with alcohol or any substances etc) I don’t CARE if it’s not the ideal solution or that it’s not men changing. You might say I have no pride as a woman. Well, I don’t care. I will never forget that moment when the one guy became two, and then three, and I screamed and cried. If I can avoid that feeling from happening ever again, sure, I’ll take the nail polish in a heartbeat. 

Saying that this nail polish is morally wrong is kind of like saying that women should just walk around at night in a certain area where it’s known to be a hotspot for assaults because “women shouldn’t have to prevent assault-we need to train men to not do it.” It’s not ideal that we have to do this, and it’s not fair, but we’ll avoid the spot, especially at night. That’s what the nail polish essentially is. 

I’m not saying it’s the women’s responsibility to use the nail polish to prevent all attacks. It’s not at all. It might propel some problems with victim blaming- that’s not okay. I’m not saying it is. However, it will help me stay safe to a certain extent. And I’d rather that. 

I just want to feel safe. What’s wrong with that, especially when we make sure we know that it’s not the golden solution for all and also strive to change society at the same time?
