“Let’s hope Nevada uses her media tour to reiterate that teaching girls self defense is NOT the best way to protect against assault.” Wait, what? That’s the text of a tweet last night by someone named Mandy Velez as reported by twitchy.com. Ms. Velez and others were reacting to newly-crowned (and taekwondo fourth degree black belt) Miss USA, Nia Sanchez, who had the effrontery to suggest that schooling women in self defense might be a good start in doing something about assaults on college campuses. Silly girl. According to her wack-o detractors, she had somehow engaged in “victim blaming.” Can you imagine the magnitude of panty twistitude had she mentioned the possibility of coeds packing a piece?
