My Great Idea

In light of recent events involving domestic violence within the NFL and Bill Cosby raping people (yes, in case you didn’t know, he’s a disgusting rapist) read here:

I came up with what I think is a pretty good solution. What if part of school curriculum for girls involved a self-defense class. Just like every day kids have to study math, English, social studies, etc., a required part of girls schooling was self-defense. Not once a week, not like a gym class, a real class where girls LEARNED EVERY DAY how to defend themselves from the time they start school. I’ll tell you that I think it would change the world!  Meanwhile, the boys would be required to take some type of class where they learn to respect people and that problems are not solved with violence etc.

I brought this up to a group of well-educated people, and also some friends, and I must say, it was a very well-received idea, aside from one idiot who said, “It wouldn’t work because it has to start at home.” Really? So if you’re not learning math and English at home, you leave school without knowing how to do math? What a moron!

Anyway, I realize that this would have to be implemented on a federal level for it to work across the country, let alone the world (that’s a whole other problem), but imagine what a different world we would be living in if from the time kids were little, boys knew that a girl would not only be able to defend herself from an attack but possibly kick his ass too! Wouldn’t that be great?

I realize that it would have to start locally before it would sweep the nation, like I imagine it could, but I just wanted to put the idea out there so that when I run for office, you’ll know what will be on my agenda :).

I’m really just sick and tired of hearing all these horrible, disgusting stories of men beating and raping women and kids! Who do they think they are? And then they are defended and often go unpunished. IT’S DISGUSTING! Until men start stepping up and kicking the crap out of these cowardly-piece-of-shit-bullies, this will be my dream solution to change the world for the better!

About Death To Hollywood

My name is Celeste Donohue and I am a writer/comedian who started this blog to tell stories about my life growing up in a funeral home and my adult life which I have spent in Hollywood, California – hence the name, “Death To Hollywood”. Hopefully, you like to read those kinds of stories. If not, go read something serious and boring.....

    I have no problem with girls learning self defense as long as they don’t think the best thing to do is stand and fight instead of using it to break free as soon as possible and RUN!

    Men, generally, have more upper body strength, and in a prolonged situation would most likely prevail. I wouldn’t want to see girls getting an unrealistic idea that knowing self-defense is some kind of magical armor.

    I also think they should tell younger girls especially to do that thing little kids do where they put their arms straight up so you can’t pick them up when it is time to go home! lol

    I would also like to see boys learn some different lessons. Maybe with both of them, we could see some changes.

    Otherwise, world wide sex strike!!!!!!!

    I like the idea you have for the boys class of learning that violence is wrong and we need to be respectful of everyone, but I think teaching just that to both genders might be all we need. I don’t know that we could do this whole boys class/girls class thing in this day and age. I totally agree that there is more domestic violence from men towards women, but it can go both ways. I also feel that it is a bit hypocritical to teach boys that violence is wrong while teaching girls to “kick their ass.” And your friend who says it has to start at home has a point. I teach kids and they learn from a very early age what types of violence are acceptable. A child who is spanked as a toddler will have a hard time unlearning that ALL violence is wrong. I can’t tell you how many conversations I have had with 6-12 year olds where I tell them that hitting is wrong and they tell me that their parents have told them to hit back…

  3. Let me clarify by saying that I didn’t mean that we teach girls to fight and to kick ass any time they can, just simply, that they learn how to defend themselves. I don’t think girls grow up being taught that or what to do if they are attacked. Of course, the message would always be that violence is no way to solve problems, but if confronted with someone who is being violent to them, they would be able to protect themselves. And yes, whatever is being taught at home would also have an impact but education is always key in progress.

    I like the idea, Cee! I will vote for you, when you run for office 🙂
    I also think a lot begins at home, violence teachings and love teachings. It would be wonderful for little girls, who grow up to be big girls, to be able to defend themselves. It would be equally as wonderful for little boys, who grow up to be big boys, to learn to keep their hands to themselves.
