This post came to me today in an email with the subject line: “A Rape Prevention Tips List Shared By My 17-Year-Old Cousin On Facebook.”
I think this means the kids are alright.
But in all seriousness folks, as you may have read on TOC earlier in the week, we have a real problem with always putting the onus of prevention on the potential victim, and not speaking about the responsibility of perpetrators to not rape. So I’d like to share my favorite rape prevention tip:
“9. Carry a rape whistle. If you find that you are about to rape someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.”
1. Don’t put drugs in women’s drinks.
2. When you see a woman walking by herself, leave her alone.
3. If you pull over to help a woman whose car has broken down, remember not to rape her.
4. If you are in an elevator and a woman gets in, don’t rape her.
5. When you encounter a woman who is asleep, the safest course of action is to not rape her.
6. Never creep into a woman’s home through an unlocked door or window, or spring out at her from between parked cars, or rape her.
7. Remember, people go to the laundry room to do their laundry. Do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.
8. Use the Buddy System! If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from raping women, ask a trusted friend to accompany you…
