Ahh I own something from Damsel in Distress. I didn’t realize they were an MLM. I’m so stupid lol. The lady who sold the pepper spray to me told me it was ‘her company’, and I worked at Staples at the time and used to work with small business owners all the time, and I just assumed it was actually her business, not that she was a ‘hun’.

I'm from the UK where tasers are counted as firearms so we don't see this kind of thing. The thought of random HunBots on Facebook selling pink weapons is frankly terrifying and hilarious to me.

I'm not going to lie, if a product says this only for MEN or only for Women and they Do Not have an actual medical or mechanical reason to explain why their products is gender specific. I normally don't buy that product. I would just buy a normal stun gun from Amazon or Walmart. Nothing fancy.

Here in Finland pepper sprays and stun guns are illegal unless you have a special permit from police to carry one. So those are very rare here. But at least here are no MLM companies that try to profit by selling them.

Hey! I'm a Damsel PRO and have been for six years. You have a lot of misinformation in your video and are doing a disservice to your viewers by stating it as if it's fact. Also, the products you are showing are ancient. I can't believe how your viewers just soak up what you're saying as gospel. (yes, I have the coffee, Jesus and PS shirt) Your segment on how it's not voltage claims that matter, followed by you pushing the amazon stun devices claiming they are 12m volts was classic! I'd love to do an interview with you so I can educate you on the company and help your viewers see that maybe just bc you do a video doesn't mean what you say is true. Your creativeness and video creation was impressive though. Content, not so much

As much as I know self defense products are needed, I’ve always seen this sort of thing as companies seeing women demand safety and instead of working to change the culture of sexism, they find a way to make money and profit off of that culture while appearing “woke”

I like your channel... very informative... it would be neat if your clothes would change with each vid... in purple and white of course! I know it takes a lot researching and editing, so that may not work out. Oh, just in case I forgot...Wikipedia is not a good citing tool, and I know you explained why you use it... but Wikipedia does have more legit citations at the end of every topic, so, it is a good place to go for info... continue doing a great job!

Interesting that Damsel in Defense actually has rented kiosks in the mall where I work, it’s one thing to look at this as a shady internet company and another thing entirely to see them in real life selling their products that will not do as good of a job as let’s say Sabre Red does. The difference in Sabre’s products and these is that Sabre’s work, are relatively affordable and quite accessible (literally you can buy their pepper spray at Target.)

Thugs don't care if you can buy the product, nor use it, and they don't care if you can defend yourself. This is pretty much the empowerment of a thug company. Now let me clarify; you shouldn't have to pay for something that isn't a working product, and if you tell someone they need such product for defense, you make yourself a thug. On the other hand, if you want to truly empower yourself, use your surroundings to your advantage. For example in the boonies, you might find a black raspberry bush somewhere, and a dog comes up threatening you... Pick up a rock, and just hit the dog angering it further, or you could actually defend yourself with the black raspberry vine that has the better thorns on it, if the dog comes charging at you with teeth bared out. I had a recent run in with this situation, so that's just what came to mind, I'm not trying to say that just dogs are dangerous. Usually the guy trying to get you is going to try to corner you, so use the corner to your advantage, and wack the bastards that have cornered you into the wall until they bleed to death for all I care. If there's a weapon involved take it by force, and use it on them, better yet arm yourself if you have a gun. Whip it out if you get cornered, shoot without hesitation, it's one of your God given rights to keep and bare arms no matter what people say about their building. If someone is too afraid of being shot in their shop, maybe they should let more good people bring in weapons, have a better chance of foiling a robbery. Even with murderers out there, you would think that shops would welcome the occasional gun owners, ready and willing to just school the bastards. I could go on and on about my God fearing, and religious beliefs about the constitution and laws, but if I say much more it will send a clear message and be deleted, so... ... Given the circumstances though, I more likely believe mostly that I want the adversary to be put to death, rather than be put in the lake of fire and brimstone.

Unrelated to the MLM in question, I just wanna say how much it annoys me that "Stun Gun" is the term for the hand-held direct-contact stun tools, while the actual gun-shaped, ranged tool is called a "taser". Like, it's a gun that stuns, and they decided to call that a taser, then named the severely not-gun stunning thing a stungun.

I sadly have a Doppler thing that I got for Christmas one year that was made by them. I’ve never used it since it stays in my bag most of the time. I got the Doppler because of past trauma I’ve endured and because the person who gave it to me wanted me to be able to defend myself in a serious/dangerous situation. Guess I’ll chuck it out. I’ll probably learn self defense shit instead lol.

Bear mace (contrary to popular belief) is actually less strong than pepper spray. Bears have much more sensitive noses compaired to humans so they don't need as much potency to get them to back off. Go with pepper spray in terms of self defense! (And don't use pepper spray for bears)
