Women told to urinate to deter a rapist

A Colorado school has caused a stir with an advisory that suggested women could urinate or vomit to deter a rape.
The list of 10 tips by the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs was billed as "last resort" options to deter a sexual assault.
"Tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating," read one tip.
"Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone," read another.
By Tuesday night, the list was taken down and replaced by an explanation and an apology. But it was too late.

    If you would carry an IPod connected to a small speaker. Then start playing either Taylor Swift, Celine Dion, or Justin Bieber music. That would make most rapists turn and run like he11. -MP
