I think preventative measures like this special new nail polish are great things. An even more effective preventative measure to avoid rape or sometimes even "buyer's remorse" is to be extra careful about drinking liquor in social settings. Even when not tampered with, liquor can impair a person's judgment.

Of course, none of this is meant to excuse sexual predators.

How utterly sad is it that people actually think that this polish will lead to blaming victims.

"Elizabeth Plank, a senior editor at Mic, told Today. “We put the onus on them, to prevent rape, when we very well know that this is not an effective way of actually reducing sexual assault."

Do we really know this? Knowing your drink is spiked has been proven to not be effective? Great pseudo science, lady.

What is it about these people, that they think a stern talking to will stop predators? Predators will do what they do, all the peer pressure in the world won't stop them. I want every tool I can find in my child's arsenal, and this could be one. Kudos to the folk that developed it.
