Bullying Experiment

Two guys stage bullying scenes on a university campus to see what people will do.

I’ve been around bullies who were much bigger than I. If I had acted in their presence, they would’ve smeared me into the ground just like they were doing to the other person. But strength in numbers – and drawing attention to the scene – is what it takes. Call police from a safe distance, at least!

I found it difficult to watch so many students all walk by at the same time while no one did anything. Also hard to hear the one guy just not want to get involved At All.

Really – how we’d feel if we were the one being bullied and no one did anything?

Rape Prevention Devices

All of my ideas were worn internally so that all women all the time would be equally protected.

artmachines.com posts about Ira Sherman’s designs that evolved from his discussions with women who had been raped.

Is not that syringe size enough to stop any man?  And yet there is a second one.

I’m still not done thinking on these things.
