Code Pink: Lady-Zones in Regensburg

As you all know, culturally enriched incidents of sexual harassment, molestation, and rape have reached epidemic proportions in German cities. A city councilor in Regensburg has decided to get serious about protecting his city’s women, and is proposing a tough, no-nonsense solution to the issue of sexual violence by refugees: he wants to establish women-only zones on city buses. And mark them in pink, in case any of the would-be molesters are unable to read German, English, Arabic, Turkish, Urdu, Swahili, etc.

And one more thing: He also says Regensburg needs women-only taxis, with female drivers.

You’ve come a long way, baby!

“Women-only taxis” and “Lady-zones”: Regensburger politician urges pink security zones in city buses

In order for women and girls to feel safe from sexual harassment, the Regensburg City council is discussing specially designed “Lady Zones” in its city busses. They are also envisioning “Women-Only Taxis”.

Christian Janele of the Christian-Socialists (CSB) had turned in an application in November of 2015 — before the mass sexual assaults in Cologne took place. The city planning commission will discuss this issue on Tuesday.

Janele says that many citizens had expressed their concerns with him: “How will my daughter, how will my wife arrive home safely in the evenings?” These fears among the citizenry have to be taken seriously. Markings on the bus floors could establish safe zones, which only women and children are allowed to be in. Additionally, there women-only taxis should be offered in which women drivers will bring female passengers to their destinations — and the city will subsidize the taxi fares. Heidelberg has had a similar project ongoing for years, says Janele.

It doesn’t have to be pink

On the social network Facebook, the Christian-Socialists have published a photo montage with a pink “Lady Zone” in a public bus. But the post adds that the safety zone doesn’t have to be pink. Any other color would be possible as well.

Janele rejects the suggestion that his “Lady Zones” could bear any reminiscence on the US segregation of black people where they were made to sit in the back of the bus. For him it is solely about the fact that “that women feel unsafe on buses.” And the same goes for senior citizens, he adds.

Transportation Authority not particularly fond of the idea

Special markings on the floors of busses are easy to apply with minimal effort — and only need to be effective at night. “During the day this topic is irrelevant.”

But the Regensburg Transportation Authority (RVV) doesn’t think much of these ideas. “There really is no necessity in that regard. We don’t have problems in that matter,” says the manager, Kai Müller-Eberstein.

An overall strategy is needed against sexualized violence

The Federal Association of Women’s Advisory and Women’s Emergency Services says: “Of course women-only spaces such as taxis and parking places could be a sensible measure for women to feel safer in public spaces.”

But spokeswoman Katja Grieger also points out that such demands could also derail the debate in the wrong direction: “Studies show us unanimously that most assaults take place in the most nearby social settings, and that the actual crime scene often turns out to be the place where the victim lives. An overall societal strategy is needed against sexualized violence, no matter where it happens.”

Assaults are a topic elsewhere as well

Sexual harassment and assaults in public transportation vehicles is a topic again and again. For instance the Parisian local traffic enterprise RATP is starting a campaign against verbal harassment on buses, metro trains and streetcars. In a survey, 71% of the women asked reported they had been victims of sexual harassment in public transportation at least once.

And in Vienna the city council has published behavioral tips for women: “When you are waiting at a stop, it can be sensible to stand with your back against a wall or to be near other people.” Another suggestion: Women should sit next to the driver or in a car with multiple other passengers when riding a bus, a tram or a subway at night.

Translator’s commentary:

I think it’s a great idea, because nuances in colors will definitely deter criminals. In fact, there should be more: There should be blue seats on which one is not allowed to steal, green seats on which one is not allowed to beat others up and so on. Teach those rapefugees the law in the most uncomfortable way possible. Everything else is nonsense.

    • I followed this link to find out what a “rape judge” is. I could not find the linked-to article, only a pageful of many headlines.

      • The “rape judge” is Daily-Mail-speak for “judge in a rape case”.
        Here is the opening part:
        by BEN TAYLOR, Daily Mail
        A judge issued an alarming warning to minicab passengers yesterday that they cannot expect to travel in safety.
        Jailing an asylum seeker for eight years for raping a secretary, Recorder Michael Sayers, QC, said those hiring a private taxi simply had no way of knowing the driver’s background.
        He called for compulsory licensing of all cab drivers after police checks on the firm where the rapist worked revealed that not one driver was being legally employed.
        “It appears that nobody can travel in minicabs with any degree of assurance or safety, as demonstrated by the facts in this case,” said the judge.

    • Don’t the idiot administrators know the full implication of this folly – total submission to sharia law and implementation by segregation of the sexes ? This trick is based on the excuse that women need to be herded into corrals for their own protection .

      • “women need to be herded into corrals for their own protection”

        And a corollary to complying this far into incremental sharia state of mind:

        If a woman steps out of the “safe zone,” that means she’s asking to be groped – she’s like uncovered cat meat, right?

  1. Hmmmm…. There was a time in Japan when ladies carried (and no doubt used) a very sharp knife of variable dimensions, called a Tanto, to prevent such incidents.
    Just saying…

    • It may be possible to purchase sharp letter openers that are sheathed and look like “sticks.” Self-defense is always the best FIRST answer. Nice historical note! 🙂

    • Nobody carries weapons in Japan. Actually, Japan has long had ‘women-only’ subway cars, because in their overcrowded subways, groping has long been a problem. Malaysia too has them, and so, I think does Taiwan. But I agree overall, in Europe, this is an act of submission.

      • Not sure if mere “groping” was the problem. I know that weapons including/especially Samurai swords have long been banned in the streets, but I simply wanted to illustrate how, many years ago, the governors of that country found obvious solutions to problems that nowadays cause us great angst to the point where we do nothing.
        Predators in our midst thus have a relatively free hand because of a misplaced “morality”.

  2. There may be nothing wrong with ” reserved for use by ” transport. e.g. gender, disability, age related, sports club, race, colour , religion many societies do and have done.

    However, this solution for a specific problem of Islamic polygionistic male behaviour is like putting a plaster (band aid) fit only for a ‘boo boo’, over a stinking gangrenous wound.

    • Related: I hadn’t known until the terror attacks in Mumbai/Bombay that horrible November that the city trains in India are divided into men-only and women-only cars, just to prevent this kind of…ah…cr*p.

      Although some of the would-be molesters–given the later group rapes reported in Delhi, etc., by Hindi-speaking men (probable Hindus?)–are not Muslim, the numbers are sliding the other way….

    • It’s worse than that. It’s more like placing an infectious substance on the wound because it validates the Islamic notion that women deserve to be violated if they don’t observe hijab or gender segregation. So it legitimizes the criminal behavior in the eyes of many Muslims.

      The only appropriate solutions, even band aid solutions, are those that de legitimize the Islamic attitudes toward women. These involve things like deporting offenders, banning them from establishments, criminal pushment, etc.

      • In high percentage Mislim states we either have to 1. reform the religion 2. send them home or 3. put millions in jails.

        If we don’t do one of these, there will be huge private militias that will begin killing, the extent of which we haven’t seen since the 30 years war.

        Seems like #2 will actually happen, doesn’t it?

    • My incorrect use of English.

      The word “however” was intended to indicate that there “is or could be something wrong with”
      ‘ There MAY be nothing wrong with ” reserved for use by ” transport.’, in the previous sentence.

      I am sorry for any offense caused to the English language.

  3. Wouldn’t it be easier if they all just wore a yellow star to aid identification just in case a perp can’t tell the difference when the victim isn’t in a pink zone?

    • Governments at all levels are slowly shutting down any effort to protect the self. Local police are impotent (Black Silvester), weapons laws limit self-protection, media willingly censors, free speech is limited, governments refuse to take action, the list is endless. The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan to forcibly integrate is rapidly unfolding.

      The best solution I’ve heard involves private militias roaming the streets, especially at night, to protect the innocent from Muslim rapists. The Guardian Angels, of red beret fame in New York City, might also establish chapters in Germany and neighboring countries.

  4. “There may be nothing wrong with ” reserved for use by ” transport. e.g. gender, disability, age related, sports club, race, colour , religion many societies do and have done.”

    So now you are arguing for gender apartheit a la Islamic societies? You think Western societies should adopt Islamic practices? Yikes!

    You apparently want to do just what the Islamic invaders would like you to do!

  5. What will be next? Caving in and demanding that every woman have a male escort while out in public? Or maybe banning perfume and tight jeans?

    I don’t see much difference between this foolish idea and how moslems actually treat their women by having seperate areas in churches.

    • Precisely, Philosopher. Once again, the innocent are being forced to accommodate the demands of the instigators of violence. “You’ve come a long way, baby” is (expletive deleted by author). Baby is going to get violent. Very violent. We all know that Islam is a long-term psychological game of domination and control. But, in the short term, let violence rule.

    • How about an area of the bus reserved and mandatory for refugee claimants? That would be fairer for the women.

      That area could be, say, on the roof of the bus.

    • Euro bureaucrats don’t want to get it Philosopher. They bought into this ” innocent victim” and “discriminated” status for non whites and muslims. Anything contradicting this, like reality must be ignored.
      The American media has been promoting this lie forever. They want everyone to think “racially”, and admit to their nonsensical white guilt.
      If you’re a weak, timid Euroweenie, you go along to get along. Our sheep, American democrats, are the same people.

  6. pink zone?

    What a genius? Democracies come up with every nonsensical , ridiculous solution, pretending that they are in charge and do something for their fellow women.

    If they come up with a real working solution then they are behaving similar to dictators.

    Paralyzed Western so-called democracies, where a muslima can mount any politician, are left without proper name and description: Traitors are elected, yes. But their aim is to promote islam, help surrender their countries to muslims, embrace islam, have no love for their own country, and citizens. Talk no action.

  7. Another way of enforcing islamic sharia law,
    1) woman’s clothing : already modesty is the key guide, tips a girl should follow.
    2) segregating women: traveling alone is being questioned and now being pushed to segregation.
    3) next be pushed to travel with an associated accompanying male. An unwitting way of again complying with sharia, in being possessed by a man.
    4) all this accommodation of sharia law is being worked through by the “unbeliever” and becomes self-enforcing on themselves.

    koran 5:32 We ordained for the children of Israel, that if anyone slew a person- unless it be in retaliation for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – It would be as if he slewed all mankind: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved all humanity

    [ so were the children of Israel supposed to be self disciplining in accordance to allah’s rules ]

    “Their “mischief” is disobeying allah” Tafsir Ibn Kathir

    “premediately (or corruption in the earth) or because of idolatry” Tafsir Ibn Abbas

    “in the way of unbelief, fornication or waylaying or the like….. many of them still commit excesses in the land, overstepping the bounds of disbelief” Tafsir al-Jalalayn

    It does seem that the reference to children of Israel also covers all “unbelievers” and any disbelief, like wearing non approved apparel is a “mischief”.
    A part of my take on it is that the “children of Israel (non believer) is also supposed to “slew a person….or for spreading mischief in the land” so as to apply these laws upon themselves.

    It all becomes self enforcing, so it will become easier for muslims to dutifully enforce on the immodest rebels, as already the systems are being set up for the “unbeliever”, plus a few more tweaks and every one will be sharia compliant, and all under the auspices of “health and safety rules” too.

  8. Or women could start carrying the old time 5 inch hat pins. If a guy rubs up against them a well placed stab would do the trick. Western women, suffer from false sense of “”empowerment”” while being steeped in learned helplessness. My bro is former homicide detective, he said women have to be willing to do not nice things, like a stab with a stilleto heel, or learning a back of the pslm push into someones nose, or eye gauging. My sister works in a pc city in public schools. Their school had to hire a special “”security” bus with a guard to transport Somali boys to their homes in another area. She also said theur special needs and mental problems were draining money from schools special needs budget, harming children of citizens. Bringing in third world is one way to destroy the West. Whether the insanity of progressivism or more sinister effort to bring on “”new world order”” …in the end the native born are ecrewed.

    • A *guaranteed* vicious beating for the entire clan every time any of them misbehaves would probably get those Somali boys into exemplary behaviour in short time. A broken leg would be a minimum, I’d say. Unfortunately this is illegal, but I’m afraid that it’s all that that culture would understand. It’s more or less how things work in Somalia.

      Somali culture is, unfortunately, a mix of the most difficult to integrate into the west. That could also explain why the country is constantly at war!

    • Sorry, Diane, but using a small weapon will likely infuriate the molester. Men are usually bigger and more powerful and when incensed can do serious bodily harm. Most women wouldn’t use counter-assault tactics even when attacked. There is no easy solution especially when political correctness overrules personal safety. The government at all levels is failing. In the U.S., we have concealed carry. But in most of Western Europe the choices are limited. Non-Muslim women are in serious danger.

      • Correct on ALL accounts.
        The needle trick only works with a 10″+ sharpened steel needle and good enough aim and opportunity to puncture the heart.
        Anything else won´t even register once these testosterone overloaded orks get into their rape-feeding-frenzy.
        Because adrenaline is a hell-of-drug.

        But this is all a learning process. Or in case of German feminism-indoctrinated womenhood, UNlearing process.

    • I know that I wouldn’t fancy getting stabbed in my privates with a 5″ hat pin, anyway!

      That’s what I call an effective deterrent.

  9. In Islamic countries women travel in specially reserved train cars for them. Women must pray in specially designated areas in mosques. Women swim at special times in pools when there are no men. Surely this new segregation on German transport (for women’s protection of course) is just another step along the way for Muslims to convert Europe to their Islamic Ummah?

  10. Muslims show up and pretty soon you have proposals for sharia gender segregation just like Saudi Arabia.

  11. Mmmmmm. Self immolation of western civilization continues unabated.

    For every one of you reading this article and realizing how wrong that “solution” is, another ten people respond with “that’s a reasonable solution.”

  12. Don’t they watch US TV series anymore in Germany?
    Almost all of them feature at least 1 swimsuit-model gorgeous Single Mom (to 3 well-behaved, successful and admirably adjusted children – who needs a dad, anyway ?), who is also MENSA smart, a martial arts – and weapons expert, an FBI agent, moonlights as a brain surgeon or archaeology researcher in her spare time, and hunts alien zombies on her days off.
    Did I mention she can easily take 5 guys twice her size in a street fight ?
    You go, grrrrl !

  13. Whites go through all the bother of inventing automatic pistols, submachine guns and all sorts of gizmo weaponry that the dull witted Muslim can’t make and what have we come to?

    Voluntary segregation anyway…

    Where is my Walther PPK…Q?

  14. Mein Frau insists that the strongest DNA departed from Europe to North America centuries back, and that what was left behind cannot survive this onslaught. I don’t know?

  15. This wouldn’t be as disheartening if I hadn’t just read “The Alienork Way”.

  16. Another craven submission by the authorities to the third world invaders.
    How insulting to the German Male population too. I would like to believe that 99.9% Of them would intervene should any young girl or woman were to be sexually harassed on any form of public transport. Why are the recently arrived Arab and North African “testosterone bombs” as Geert Wilders correctly describes them given this elevated “get out of jail cultural misunderstanding “card in the first place? Arrest, batter, convict, DEPORT, it’s as simple as ABCD!

    • Based on what you see on DW News, the German male population is more concerned with smartphones, stock portfolios, transgender issues, delectable food & wine and which Indian ocean island to select for their next charter holiday.
      Does anyone in Germany not wear glasses, ca. 2016 ?
      Aside from the Afro-Asians, of course.

  17. This is now the new narrative of our treacherous Gutmenschen.
    In the first days they used the tried and true feminist “this is nothing new all men are rapist” narrative, but this failed spectacularly.

    Now we see the appeasement Spiel.
    Even my Local paper had some ball-less wonder exclaiming that “this is sad every-day life now”.
    It´s almost funny.
    I can´t imagine how hot the paper´s phone lines glowed, at least judging from the comments sections on such web articles.
    Before they are censored or just shut down altogether.
    Which is always a great victory! The cake of whoop-ass is rising nicely. 🙂

  18. There used to be “Ladies Only” carriages on British Railways trains. They were phased out as women and society became more relaxed about sexuality and women were portrayed as capable of self defense against male aggressors. I saw the last ones in the 1970s. I realise this may not be a popular sentiment but I regretted their passing, I would use them, especially at night, and feel secure. The introduction of open carriages as opposed to enclosed ones helped somewhat but gangs of thugs are not pleasant company either. I think the pink paint is somewhat stupid and unnecessary, better to have images of pigs.

  19. Color me shocked, absolutely shocked that leftists would come up with more retrograde policies that unironically employ the color pink on a sexist basis.

    Oh what a world we could have if we could free ourselves from these regressives who hate women, hate Europe, hate civilization, hate Caucasian peoples, and hate themselves!

  20. This in the country FOX news named this morning as the best/most livable in the world?!

    Someone’s idea of a sick joke, surely!

  21. I think the important thing from a CJ perspective is that we have been saying for long enough that problems like this could arise, and now by attempting to do something about it, the authorities have acknowledged that this problem has in fact arisen.

    So we ought to use things like this to point out the obvious fact that the authorities wouldn’t be doing it if there wasn’t a problem.

    So there *is* a problem.

    Now: What is it, and how did it come about …

    • The mainstream acknowledges there is a problem — a problem of a Tiny Minority of Extremists who are Hijacking Islam. The very attention to this problem guarantees that the majority of Muslims (who are decent moms and pops like the rest of us and “just wanna have a sandwich”) will continue to be protected and accepted into our societies. And most of the Counter-Jihad accepts an only somewhat modified form of this (meanwhile patting itself on the back for being oh so much tougher than the mainstream).

      Which is why I’ve given up hope in the West’s chances of reversing its Mohammedan destruction over the course of this 21st century.

  22. Well meaning but misguided plan that address the results not the source of the problem.
    Pink zones, women only areas and women only days at the swimming pool actually give what the Islamists want; the segregation of the sexes.
    Europe ends up changing it’s cultural practices to accommodate a minority population of migrants. If they can’t behave or conform to European norms of behaviour they shouldn’t be admitted in the first place.

  23. I have travelled in a number of muslim countries, and my first thought when I read this was the segregation of the sexes on transport in those countries (and in the restaurants too). I would be worried they would see it as us ‘seeing the error of our ways’ and adopting their customs.

  24. Uhh…you are giving the invaders exactly what they want. This is Sharia where Men and Women are segregated. Basically, you are conforming to them. We must never conform to them.

  25. Muslims don’t care about safe-zones for women. They’ll sit where they want to sit. All they care about is Islam and Sharia. Our silly little laws can be ignored, with Allah’s blessing.

  26. So if the “lady-zone” is full, a woman must wait longer in the pouring rain or snow, maybe til after dark, when she will be in more danger. Or maybe she has to sit in the other part of the bus where misogynists will consider her fair game for mistreatment. Why should the onus be on women, for normal civilized treatment? How about having immigrants adapt?

  27. As a bus rider, I can see that the seats in the very back have nothing to grab onto if the bus stops suddenly or lurches violently. All in all, shabby treatment for citizens, paying taxes for public benefits for immigrants, when it’s immigrants who should adapt.
