Cell phones GPS can put woman in danger.
WXYZ TV news did a story last night that may surprise a lot of you and scare the you know what out of some of you.
Did you know that the same technology that allows 911 to find you in an emergency can also let a stalker find your location and possibly do you great harm or worse?
I was shocked when I heard this story and thought it was something that should be pasted along to all of you as well as anyone you care for that may, or may not be in a bad situation.
Go to this link and hear for your self's just how easy it is for someone to not only stalk, but fine out right where you are at any time with in a few feet.
Please be careful with your phones even if you are in a good relationship.

whether walking through a dimly lit parking lot or just chatting on the phone, we women should always be situationally aware - look around you all the time and notice your surroundings.
I have heard of this stalker potential too, though I don't personally know anyone who's been affected. It's also so easy to be distracted while on the phone anyway, so it's important to always be tuned in to your surroundings - even if you're somewhere you usually feel safe.

But I agree. Regardless of having a tracking device on us or not, we have to be careful... I was once taught not to wear ponytails because it's easy for attackers to grab them.

But that's why I wish I could take a self-defense class! You never know when you're going to need it.

When I was in my teens still living at home my mom, my Aunts and even the neighbor ladys would all freak out if they saw my friends and I walking out the door with pony tails. At the time we all thought they were just being silly, but now that I'm older I'm carful about how I wear my hair when I'm going out. I've seen first hand how a guy, or even a girl can use your pony tail to keep you from getting away from them and it isn't pretty at all!! Some pretty scary things can happen to us woman in all sorts of different ways. We all need to watch what we're doing and where we're doing it. Expecially now that the holiday shopping season starting.
