Ladies, Have You Heard About The New Anti-rape Nail Polish? Read This!

Four male college students of
the North Carolina State
University (pictured above) are
working on a new nail polish
that protects women against
sexual assault. It's called the
rape prevention nail polish or
the anti-rape nail polish. Now
that's genius.
According to their facebook
page, the aim of their
company Undercover Colors,
is "to invent technologies
that empower women to
protect themselves. With
our nail polish, any woman
will be empowered to
discreetly ensure her safety
by simply stirring her drink
with her finger. If her nail
polish changes colour, she'll
know that something is
Kelly Oxford; a New York
times Best Selling Author
commended the idea: "This
new nail polish that can
detect the date rape drug is
great if you think women
aren't trying hard enough
not to get molested."
Andrea Grimes, a Senior
Political Reporter at RH Reality
Check, pointed out on twitter
that "Rape prevention nail
polish sounds like a great
idea but I'm not sure how
you're going to get men to
wear it."
And of course the invention
was greeted with enough
backlashes one would expect
of such "strong" topic. So I
got reactions from 3 different
twitter users. Their say:
IjeomaOluo: Women
molested by loved ones,
family members, dates,
friends. Women molested as
war tactics. You think a polish
would help them?
Lindywest: I am not really
that into the "rape
prevention" nail polish. how
about women don't have to
wear a special nail polish and
dunk their fingers in every
cocktail to not get molested.
But "rape prevention nail
polish" is the DEFINITION of
"looking like you're helping."
It's an impractical fix for ONE
specific circumstance.
Ryan MacLean: Instead of
finding real prevention
methods it perpetuates the
idea that women should be
held responsible for not
getting molested.
