Some apparently necessary rape prevention tips

Yeah, women are always getting lectured about what *they* should do to prevent rape, but what about rape prevention tips for *guys*? Here's a few tips:

  1. If you're walking alone at night and you see a woman walking alone, DON'T RAPE HER
  2. If you come across a girl who is too drunk to consent, the safest course of action is to NOT RAPE HER
  3. If you see a woman in a short, tight skirt - even if she's not wearing underwear - DON'T RAPE HER
  4. Don't put drugs in women's drinks.
  5. If you pull over to help a woman who's car is broken down, try to remember to NOT RAPE HER.
  6. Carry a rape whistle, so that if you feel as though you are about to rape, you can blow it and call for someone to come stop you.
  7. Use the buddy system! If you're unsure you'll be able to keep yourself from raping, go with a friend who can step in and stop you from assaulting women!
  8. Just to be safe, never climb through a woman's bedroom window, jump out at her from an alley, or stalk her on a dark street with the intention of raping her.
  9. If a woman yells STOP, DON'T, or RAPE, take this as a cue to STOP RAPING HER.
Hopefully this clarifies the situation a bit, yo?

  1. When I was still in high school, my family moved away from the big city to a much smaller college town. Around that time, there were some rapes on campus. The university sent around a flyer explaining that they were going to start having a curfew for all women who lived in the dorms (for their own safety of course).

    I have to admit that I didn't see anything wrong with it at first. But one day, after school, I was walking with some friends through campus and came upon a bunch of feminists demonstrating in front of the library. They were upset about this policy. I talked to them for a while and they explained to me why they were so upset. I remember it because I had this huge epiphany that YES, it is *wrong* to punish women with a curfew when it is men who are causing the problem.

    Anyways, this thing has been passed around a lot by my facebook friends lately and it always reminds me of those women on campus and how they changed the way I look at the world.

  2. Another rule to remember:
    When walking past females on the street be sure to look down and away in case they "think" you may want to rape them and atttack you with pepper spry, "just in case".
    Not to make any humour out of a horrible thing but there are some proactive fears about rape.

  3. FWIW : "Go Partnership" is an anagram of "Stop Raping Her" :-)


  4. w3ski, I grieve for your millenia of horrific oppression.

  5. Don't forget this one:

    "If you think your sister (or cousin) is hot......."

  6. Mr. 618, that addition is in the Alabama version. I live in California, remember? ;)
