The anti-rape nail polish technology, which is created to detect date rape drugs in drinks, has invited negative reactions from several women and anti-rape advocates on Twitter.


Tracey Vitchers, Chair of the Board at Students Active For Ending Rape (SAFER), said that the problem wasn't whether a woman knew there were roofies in her drink, but the fact that someone put roofies in her drink, Mashable reported.

Vitchers, who considers educating people about assault and predatory behavior as the more effective solution for ending rape, added that the gendered nature of nail polish implied that only women were the victims of such crimes.

She continued that products like this were asking young women, who have a right to bodily integrity, to continuously monitor their surroundings when talking to young men about modifying their behavior was needed.

An online user, Andrea Grimes, took it to twitter to share her opinion on anti-rape nail polish saying that rape prevention nail polish sounded like a great idea but she was not sure how one was going to get men to wear it.

Another online user, Ijeoma Oluo, posted "Do you really, seriously think women can avoid getting raped? Do you think that we haven't been trying hard enough? Is that it?... Why is it easier to wear rape whistles, rape polish, fucking electric bras, text all our whereabouts, don't drink, cover ourselves in armor."
