How to Prevent Rape

A lot has been said about how to prevent rape. Women should learn self-defense. Women should lock themselves in their houses after dark. Women shouldn’t wear short skirts. Women shouldn’t leave drinks unattended. Perhaps they shouldn’t dare to get drunk at all.

Instead of further curtailing women’s freedom, how about:

If a woman is drunk, don’t rape her.
If a woman is walking alone at night, don’t rape her.
If a women is drugged and unconscious, don’t rape her.
If a woman is wearing a short skirt, don’t rape her.
If a woman is jogging in a park at 5 am, don’t rape her.
If a woman looks like your ex-girlfriend you’re still hung up on, don’t rape her.
If a woman is asleep in her bed, don’t rape her.
If a woman is asleep in your bed, don’t rape her.
If a woman is doing her laundry, don’t rape her.
If a woman is in a coma, don’t rape her.
If a woman changes her mind in the middle of or about a particular activity, don’t rape her.
If a woman has repeatedly refused a certain activity, don’t rape her.

If a woman is not yet a woman, but a child, don’t rape her.
If your girlfriend or wife is not in the mood, don’t rape her.
If your step-daughter is watching tv, don’t rape her.
If you break into a house and find a woman there, don’t rape her.
If your friend thinks it’s okay to rape someone, tell him it’s not, and that he’s not your friend.

If your “friend” tells you he raped someone, report him to the police.
If your frat-brother or another guy at the party tells you there’s an unconscious woman upstairs and It’s your turn, don’t rape her, call the police and tell the guy he’s a rapist.

Tell your sons, god-sons, nephews, grandsons, sons of friends it’s not okay to rape someone.

Don’t tell your women friends how to be safe and avoid rape.
Don’t imply that she could have avoided it if she’d only done/not done x.
Don’t imply that it’s in any way her fault.
Don’t let silence imply agreement when someone tells you he “got some” with the drunk girl.
Don’t perpetuate a culture that tells you that you have no control over or responsibility for your actions. You can, too, help yourself.

If you agree, repost it. It’s that important. -Author unknown

I have two teenage daughters, and although I agree with everything in the #1, I would not like them (or anyone else) to count on everyone else agreeing with it.

There are a lot of dangerous things that can happen to ANYONE when they get so drunk that they pass out. The ad showed one possible consequence.

"over-consumption of alcohol to the forefront and all of the dangers associated with it".

Maybe they should have an ad telling men not to get drunk and push their sloppy, nasty selves on women. Because... you know... that N.E.V.E.R. happens...

Or take advantage of them WHILE THEY'RE PASSED OUT ?? Well, that's just weird and creepy.

Parents should be teaching their sons everything in #1...drilling it into their heads.

I still distinctly remember with disgust a lunch time conversation I had with a co-worker on a construction site some years ago. In telling me how his weekend had been he related to me how he had attended a party at which a woman had gotten blind drunk and then fell victim to a "train" of assailants including himself. His exact gleefully told words were, "Man musta been fifteen of us had that whore!"

The man was a good worker and had seemed to me to be a fairly decent individual based on our previous interactions. Suddenly all I could think about doing was punching him in his grinning mouth, I had to walk away before I got myself fired.

I recall being at parties in my younger days where some woman needed assistance after too much alcohol and recall my friends and I sharing "bathroom upchuck watch," trying to get non-alcoholic fluids into them, making them a place to lie down, and making sure someone of us was delivering them home safely. How that remembered shared empathy for another in need has somehow in parts of society morphed into "look that bitch is drunk, let's gang-rape her" I don't know. All I know is that it is both sick and sickening. :(

re: #1 Sionainn

The trouble is that only you can look out for yourself. Nobody else is going to do it for you. Convincing other people to change how they treat others is an uphill battle, because a good lot people are scum and could care less about anyone but themelves. The simplest way to get results is to empower the people who care the most, not to rant at the ones who can get away with exploiting them.

Of course, one can only look out for oneself. The point is that it gets mighty tiresome to have women blamed for everything that happens to them because men can't control themselves. It pisses me off.
