An increasing number of rapes, murders, and disappearances of female university students have been making headlines recently in China, stoking fears among students nationwide. Many people have asked how they can ensure their safety, so the Wuhan police have come up with a handy list.
The local Public Security Bureau for Wuhan University posted an extraordinary list of ways to avoid getting raped, which was then republished by Sina Guangdong. So, want to avoid having your dignity taken away? Here are nine suggestions from a Chinese police authority:
Don’t take illegal cabs. (If you do,) get into the habit of memorizing the license plate. Sit in the back seat, and pretend to make a call.
Woman on cellphone in the back: Husband, come out and pick me up! The license plate of the car is xxx
Carry a small spray bottle that contains Fengyoujing (a medicated balm lotion), and spray it into the eyes of an attacker.
Throw your wallet somewhere far away instead of passing it over to the attacker.
Person throwing: Fly away!
If you want to take a picture of the bad man, you can pretend to be talking on the phone and surreptitiously record him by pointing the back of the phone towards him.
Be very careful using this one! If you are discovered doing this, you will die a grisly death.
Sometimes, teeth can be more effective than your own hands
Cannibal: If you’re not careful, you’ll have eaten the attacker.
Cut your fingernails into this shape. A blunt cut is fine; don’t make them too long or else they may break unexpectedly.
Upon being raped*, you should defecate or urinate if you can, or stick your fingers down your throat to vomit.
An ordinary person will wilt at this sight.
Carry a pen on your person (with the exception of a lead pencil). This is more convenient than a knife because you are able to pass through a security checkpoint.
Be ugly; this is the safest way of all!
As it were, comments to this post have been rather uniform:
[laughing.emo] No. 9 is the truth.
The most harmonious one is the last one…
So violent and bloody! Seeing that pen stab into the brain, it looks so painful! [illness.emo]
The last one is the most practical!
