A lot has been said about how to prevent rape. Women should learn self-defense. Women should lock themselves in their houses after dark. Women shouldn't have long hair and women shouldn't wear short skirts. Women shouldn't leave drinks unattended. Fuck, they shouldn't dare to get drunk at all.

Instead of that bullshit, how about:

If a woman is drunk, don't rape her. If a woman is walking alone at night, don't rape her. If a women is drugged and unconscious, don't rape her. If a woman is wearing a short skirt, don't rape her. If a woman is jogging in a park at 5AM, don't rape her. If a woman looks like your ex-girlfriend you're still hung up on, don't rape her. If a woman is asleep in her bed, don't rape her. If a woman is asleep in your bed, don't rape her. If a woman is doing her laundry, don't rape her. If a woman is in a coma, don't rape her. If a woman changes her mind in the middle of or about a particular activity, don't rape her. If a woman has repeatedly refused a certain activity, don't rape her. If a woman is not yet a woman, but a child, don't rape her. If your girlfriend or wife is not in the mood, don't rape her. If your step-daughter is watching TV, don't rape her.

If you break into a house and find a woman there, don't rape her. If your friend thinks it's okay to rape someone, tell him it's not, and that he's not your friend. If your "friend" tells you he raped someone, report him to the police. If your frat-brother or another guy at the party tells you there's an unconscious woman upstairs and it's your turn, don't rape her, call the police and report him as a rapist.

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

Don't just tell your women friends how to be safe and avoid rape. Don't imply that she could have avoided it if she'd only done/not done x, y, or z. Don't imply that it's in any way her fault. Don't let silence imply agreement when someone tells you he "got some" with the drunk girl. Don't perpetuate a culture that tells you that you have no control over or responsibility for your actions. You can, too, help yourself.


If you agree, repost it. It's important.

I will add: Don't rape anyone of ANY gender. And if you see a rape REPORT IT TO THE POLICE.

BTW. I've turned comments off for this entry. If you aren't someone I know, I don't want your opinion on this...and if you are someone I know and you want to let me know your opionion on this...you know my email address.

I've been planning all day to say something about this last election.

I don't have the simple eloquence of [livejournal.com profile] rosepurr or the straightforward statements of [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] or all the facts of [livejournal.com profile] solarbird.

I wish I did.

I wish I had some way to express my feelings... writing isn't really my gig. Give me a program to debug any day of the week.

Maybe that's my problem...maybe I figured that if I plugged in the right answer I would get the desired result.

I didn't.

I'm a straight monogamous married male...born in the middle of the bible belt...raised southern babtist.... and I can not fathom the depth of stupidity that my country and my state have displayed in the last day.

How the fuck does it protect my marriage to tell two people who love each other so much that they want to be joined emotionally, legally, financially, and every OTHER way that two people CAN be joined that they can't.

I wrote to Mitch McConnell our senator...got back what was obviously a form letter (Which says to me that he got a LOT of letters like mine) It basically stated that I had no idea what I was talking about....so if a federal amendment is proposed...guess which way he's voting?

I was hoping that our state would send a clear message about how hateful such a thing was by voting no to Kentucky's version of an amendment.

The damn thing doesn't even recognize civil unions as valid...and here is a kicker...KY used to recognize other state's Common Law marriages,...the wording of the amendment probably eliminates that as well.

What are they afraid of? WHY does the thought of a same sex couple freak them out so much? I can't understand such thinking.

And Bush...gods...the man has stated point blank that there is a segment of the american population that he wants to keep a basic right from...the right to the pursuit of happiness.

I am ashamed of my state and me...I was too pollyanna about it...."Oh that won't pass a vote, nobody could fall for that crap."

Wrong bucko....75% of my state...and I can't even claim it was the fault of a vocal minority....the voter turn out was too high for that to be the case.

Those of you who  used to live in lLexington (and surrounding areas) may remember the castle on Versailes road.

It's on fire tonight.

It looks like there won't be much left.

The kentucky house and Senate have passed a bill to amend Kentucky's Constitution.

The amendment will Ban Gay Marriage and will even officially ignore Cilvil Unions.

So it will be  on the ballot for the public to decide.

I hope like hell that the voting public will not vote the way the politicians are obviously hoping.

assholes.

I really appreciate the few who voted against it...one even went so far as to  conclude her speech with a request to the people in her district to vote her out of office if this is what they really wanted.
