Pink tasers for sale
Seeing as how there’s been a lot of Shameless blogging about tasers, and about the colour pink, I figured you might all want to know that come April 2007 for a mere $300 we will all be able to buy personal 50,000 volt tasers in a range of colours - including pink.
I’m sorry, but I’ve got to admit this: I’ve wanted to own my own taser for many years now, since a friend advised, “absolutely nobody will mess with you if you’ve got a taser.”
See, I’m utterly terrified of being sexually assaulted. I never have been, but so, so many of my friends have been raped. It’s truly sad that I consider myself “one of the lucky ones” because I haven’t been violated. And it’s truly sad that I now fear every single strange man I see. I have no prejudices - I don’t care what race you are, how old you are, whether you look poor or rich, healthy or sick - if you are a man on the streets late at night and I don’t know you, I fear you.
So although the pacifist/hippy in me is utterly opposed to the sale of these horrible things, the vengeful woman in me actually got a wee bit excited when I saw this piece of news. I would love nothing more than to take a sparkly pink taser to the testicles of every single scumbag rapist out there who got away with it (which is almost all of them).
