To be fair there isn't really anything the victim can or can not do to prevent rape. The consensus in the misogynist set to prevent rape is like telling a store owner to close up shop to stop shoplifters.
So again the burden of preventing the lack of self control on the part of the rapist falls on those preyed upon by rapists.
Wired reports, “It may be advisable to submit [rather] than resist,” reads the brochure (.pdf), issued to airmen at Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina, where nearly 10,000 military and civilian personnel are assigned. “You have to make this decision based on circumstances. Be especially careful if the attacker has a weapon.”
The brochure does however, explain that sexual assault is not always committed by people who “don’t look like a rapist” — attackers “tend to have hyper-masculine attitudes,” but, the brochure does not offer instruction to servicemembers on not committing sexual assault, which points to prevention to be treated as the responsibility of potential victims.
So we are okay with people that lack the ability to refrain from attacking one of their own peers with having the responsibility to protect and or deploy our most destructive weaponry?
Anyone else disturbed by the thought?
