  •  So where we disagree most is with this statement: (0+ / 0-)

    "Nothing is going to stop a rapist."

    In the military, there have been several attempts to decrease rape. The solutions have all revolved around teaching potential victims (because men are raped in equal numbers as women) how to better protect themselves. It's not working. It has never worked.

    The program that Tara the Antisocial Social Worker shared, Don't Be That Guy has dropped rape by 10% in the communities where it is being used. It doesn't teach women to be safer. It asks men to take responsibility for their actions.

    Do you see the difference?

    Isn't it time as a society that we ask men to take some of the responsibility for preventing rape?

    •  no we don't disagree (0+ / 0-)

      not on the type of rapist and rape I think you are talking about. The disaagreement comes on the 'softer', more 'gray' portion where it breaks down to he said, she said and was it bad sex or actual rape.

      Personally speaking I think men take on a lot of responsibility for preventing rape but shouldn't women do too?
