10 Rape Prevention Tips

Don’t throw rape back in the faces of women. Women who are raped don’t ask for it. They don’t want it. They are not to blame. 

 

Ten rape prevention tips:

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 at all times.

9. Carry a rape whistle. If you find that you are about to rape someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.

10. Don’t forget: Honesty is the best policy. When asking a woman out on a date, don’t pretend that you are interested in her as a person; tell her straight up that you expect to be raping her later. If you don’t communicate your intentions, the woman may take it as a sign that you do not plan to rape her.

Don’t throw rape back in the faces of women. Women who are raped don’t ask for it. They don’t want it. They are not to blame.

  1. THANK YOU!!! I volunteered for a year at a center for Women Escaping Domestic Violence so I’m familiar with the trauma of rape. Because it happens in those relationships too. Thanks again for posting this, the damage that can be done is beyond belief sometimes and I get so sick and furious when the women are blamed for what happened to them.

    • Your welcome. THANK YOU for your comment. A friend of mine posted this on Facebook. I swiped it. My 13 year old daughter and I discussed it. I hesitated at first before posting this because of the slight humor, but that twisted humor is used to make people think, make people angry and maybe make some change.

  2. I noted once, I think the reason that many women are happy to blame the victims is because it instills in them this false sense of security, as if a woman might look at the situation and list all the reasons “that woman” invited it (what she was wearing, where she was at, who she was with) and thus have a perfect little checklist of why she is safe because she’d *never* do those things.

    Because if those women realized that it wasn’t the victim who invited it or somehow wasn’t diligent enough in prevention, then it means *they, too, might be a victim* for no other reason than because someone decided to make them victims. Not because of anything they did or didn’t do, or through some lack of judgement on their part, and that seems to be too terrifying to accept, so it’s easier to blame the victim and pretend “that could never be me.”

    And that, sadly, is probably why this seems humorous, because it calls up that little ingrained piece of social conditioning that says “This is funny because it’s the opposite of what is real.” 😦

    Thank you for posting it, though. Maybe it will reach someone who really needs it!
