It has come to this. Because there's still much to be done about this patriarchal society and because there are still many men who just don't get that anything they do to us without our consent is bad, someone came up with an underwear that will help prevent sexual assaults. How? It has a special lock, it can't be pulled down, and it can't be cut with a pair of scissors.

The only way this underwear can be opened is for the owner to do her secret lock movements.

But this product has also gotten a lot of criticism. Some people are concerned about situations where the assailant threatens to take a woman's life if she doesn't take it off. Some people are also thankful for this because in some situations where someone puts a drug on your drink during a party and you pass out, this will protect them in some way.

So what do we think? We think this is helpful, but it also makes us wonder about how bad the state of the world is today that people have come up with protection to be worn every day. While any contribution to prevention is good, let's not forget the root cause of the problem. Isn't it sad to encourage people to wear this every day because we're always scared of our safety? While it will surely give someone peace of mind, it's also a disconcerting reflection of what our society has become.
