    Men can stop rape. Even the ones who don't rape can contribute to a culture that is not innately violent toward women and minorities. It doesn't mean all men are bad: I think few people in this diary are saying that. It does mean that men can help stop rape.

    And plenty of "men with sense" have lectured me about:

    1. Working nights.
    2. Working with men.
    3. Going to a movie/bar/show/etc alone.
    4. Not knowing how to drive.
    5. Living with men.
    6. Having a ground floor apartment.
    7. Not having a big dog.
    8. Dancing alone.

    They are otherwise sensical people, they just have male privilege. That isn't a bad thing, but it is part of who they are. And even if I do all the things I am told, and I get raped anyway, the FIRST THING that will be asked of me is: what were you wearing, did you lead him on/etc.

    It gives a lovely light.
