Domestic violence deserves the 'one punch' treatment and laws changed to protect women at work Earlier this year, the media's response to alleged "one-punch" killings was undoubtedly a highly successful campaign for legislative change.

Geek Feminism Wiki Geek Feminism blog posts Helping out Not sure where to start? 24 Rules Of Seduction 'Targets with active minds are dangerous: If they see through your manipulations, they may suddenly develop doubts. Put their minds gently to rest, and waken their dormant senses, by combining a nondefensive attitude with a charged sexual presence. While your cool, nonchalant air is lowering their inhibitions, your glances, voice, and bearing -- oozing sex and desire -- are getting under their skin and raising their temperature.
