Anti-rape device: Rape-aXe

Rape is never a pleasant topic. However, it's good to know that some people have applied their creativity to leverage advances in technology and create an anti-rape device like the Rape-aXe female condom. This device was recently featured in a CNN story titled, "South African doctor invents female condoms with 'teeth' to fight rape." Rape is a common problem in South Africa and Dr. Sonnet Ehlers has created a device that is stirring controversy. Some argue that this device may endanger women further since men will may become more violent if they are trapped by this device. Others are saying that this may deter men from raping women.

I think we need to electrify those teeth and connect the condom to a stun gun. That should deter and disable men from acting more violently if they're being shocked "down there."
