      How do you stop a serial killer from becoming a serial killer?  How do you stop a thief from stealing?  Telling them not to do it does not seem to work.  I believe that bringing the issue to light, making sure men know it is not just the way it works, that it is a violent crime, "don't be that guy" campaigns, etc... All help but focusing on safety tips is the best way to prevent the situation from getting to the point where a rapist has the opportunity to rape.

      A woman has an incentive to protect herself.  A rapist wants to rape so his incentive must outweigh that desire.  I do not know what that incentive would be.  

      The truth is, the focus needs to be both.  I absolutely agree that the victim is not to blame but we all need to do everything possible to try to prevent there from being victims in the first place.  However it is done, I hope it works.
