A pervert is trying to rape me. But I'm not scared. He won't be able to penetrate me, because I'm impervious - immuned to perverts.

impervious = im-'not' + per-'completely' + vious 'via'[old] => not (completely via) => impossible to penetrate

impervious; here,{pervious= perversion}, thus im-pervious= which cannot be perversed with therefore which cannot be damaged or penetrated

IM = not + PERVIoUS = letting things through
