Ten Ways to Avoid Rape

  1. Don’t put drugs in people’s drinks in order to control their behavior.

  2. When you see a woman walking by herself, leave her alone!

  3. If you pull over to help a woman with car problems, remember not to assault her.

  4. NEVER open an unlocked door or window uninvited.

  5. If you are in an elevator and a woman gets in, DON’T ASSAULT HER.

  6. Remember, people go to laundry rooms to do their laundry: do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.

  7. If a woman is drunk, don’t rape her.

  8. If someone tells you he raped someone, report him to the police.

  9. Don’t tell your friend that being raped was in any way her fault.

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

What a stupid post. You want to prevent rape. Allow women to carry guns.

If you have a gun, and you are disarmed by your assailant, then they not only overpower you, but they also have a gun. If you have a gun, you have to be willing to kill someone. Not just in a theoretical sense, but actually point a gun at someone and know that you are ending their life. Pull the trigger and kill them. Extremely traumatic stuff. I suspect that most people do not believe that they have the right to kill another person. The post is in fact right on point.

Yeah, having everyone walking around with guns has worked out real well in the US.

Um, look what gun control has done in Toronto.

You mean look what gun imports from the uncontrolled US have done in Toronto, Bert.

The gun comments are missing the point. This list sarcastically points out the ridiculousness of victim-blaming. When a woman gets raped, it's the rapist's fault. If she was wearing skimpy clothing, out at night by herself, and drunk, it is still the rapist's fault. Period.

This should be obvious; that it's not reveals a lot about our society.

just a side note, women can actually carry guns. Idiot.

Awesome post, just remember:

Women aren't the only ones getting raped and men aren't the only ones doing the raping.
