Comments on Rape Trap Like Snow Crash 'Dentata'
South Aftrican inventor Sonette Ehlers has invented an anti-rape device similar to one mentioned in Neal Stephenson's novel Snow Crash. (Read the complete story)

"This invention is on the same level as inventing electricityu ty "

"Any device that prevent,s a woman from not being forced or raped is a must of the highest importance! The oppostion to this device going on shelves are ignorant,s and have absolutely no right to veto power over banning this device !They should be silenced immediatelly for the small minority who abuse this protection for women and their health and dignity is a small price to pay over the terrible violence of rape !Thankyou"

"While chances are overwhelming this device can prevent at least one rape, technology does not, and cannot solve the psychological, social, and emotional problems that perpetuate crimes like rape around the world."

"and you thought a bj with teeth was bad..."

"i will be so glad when it gets accapted in the united states, if only they made it for me too then it would be a much safer world for everyone concerned."

"Even if it deters a small percentage of men from committing the act of rape it is worth while. Rape is an act of aggression not of sexual pleasure, but I would want to hit them where it hurts myself."
(Tatianna 9/2/2005 8:22:13 PM)
"Not nearly lethal enough, as a friend of a rape victim who committed suicide my opinion is the device should have been designed to castrate them on the spot. Just think along the lines of those things used to trim the tips of cigars..."
(Sarah 9/10/2005 1:36:13 AM)
"Great invention!!! It's just too bad that those who would benefit from this invention won't be able to afford it (most people in South Africa don't live affluent lives like Charlene Smith)...And by the way, wouldn't we all appreciate it if someone with AIDs stuck it to Charlene Smith?"
(American Pig 11/2/2005 6:31:12 PM)
"About time to train every young girl to use these and give them away so that every woman can protect herself. Maybe an injection of Strychnine would be more practical. No need for women to be afraid of some "party animals". "
(Just Say No 11/16/2005 4:48:18 PM)
"I wonder how the device releases from the woman who is raped? "
(Steve 11/16/2005 7:05:36 PM)
"Wouldn't guys just catch on and start poking a stick in first to see if the woman is wearing a device??"
( 1/19/2006 10:25:12 PM)
"Lets be honest now the only thing this would change is if women used something like this is they would suddenly find anal rape becoming the norm,"
( 3/9/2006 1:23:15 PM)
"Many potential problems. It would have to penetrate the skin inside the female. Transmittal of disease would be almost a sure bet. Also, potential for women to abuse it and use it as an act of agression could wrongly convict a person of rape."
(Bonne` 3/24/2006 11:34:28 AM)
"I think Bonne has summed things up very well. Excellent work! An invention like this, although in the best interests of women, has great potential for abuse."
(Andy 7/12/2006 3:14:41 AM)
"This device does not deter rapists. From the RAPEX website's FAQ: "Is it possible for a rapist to see if a woman is wearing RAPEX? Absolutely not! It fits behind the labia and has no strings or anything protruding." Because of this, by the time the device has ensnared the attacker, rape has already occurred."
( 8/17/2006 5:05:55 PM)
"Bonne said it best, however once word got around of the new device, the use stick first idea would surely become more common, and that would not be a good thing."
( 10/11/2009 10:59:40 PM)
"And how many of you think the rapist will quietly disappear after his victim snares his penis with hooks? It seems to me like more than a few of those rapes will escolate to murder. Yes the rapist will get caught but at what cost? "
( 6/21/2010 10:23:12 PM)
"The SnowCrash dentata does not deter rape, it prevents murder and violence after penetration, as the narcotics and depressants drug and render the attacker unconscious."
