Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] noblealice. This made my day.
Sexual Assault Prevention Tips Guaranteed to Work!

1. Don't put drugs in people's drinks in order to control their behavior.

2. When you see someone walking by themselves, leave them alone!

3. If you pull over to help someone with car problems, remember not to assault them!

4. NEVER open an unlocked door or window uninvited.

5. If you are in an elevator and someone else gets in, DON'T ASSAULT THEM!

6. Remember, people go to laundry to do their laundry, do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.

7. USE THE BUDDY SYSTEM! If you are not able to stop yourself from assaulting people, ask a friend to stay with you while you are in public.

8. Always be honest with people! Don't pretend to be a caring friend in order to gain the trust of someone you want to assault. Consider telling them you plan to assault them. If you don't communicate your intentions, the other person may take that as a sign that you do not plan to rape them.

9. Don’t forget: you can't have sex with someone unless they are awake!

10. Carry a whistle! If you are worried you might assault someone "on accident" you can hand it to the person you are with, so they can blow it if you do.

And, ALWAYS REMEMBER: if you didn't ask permission and then respect the answer the first time, you are committing a crime — no matter how "into it" others appear to be.

All of those shitty lists of 'don't walk late at night' & 'don't wear revealing clothing' always bother me and it's not even because people are telling ME what I can't do with my life/body. It's because it's setting up the EXCUSES for later when men can say "oh, well, she looked like a slut, so she had to expect this would happen to her" EVEN THOUGH WHAT HAPPENED IS NEVER ACCEPTABLE. EVER.

Or, as better said by better writers than I:

Advice that counsels women to give up the things the people consider normal, ordinary parts of social life is not really advice, is it? The goal is not to get women to take perfect precautions. In fact, men get very bent out of shape when women do treat them as potential rapists. No, the goal of putting the focus on the woman’s conduct is to make sure that when it happens again, the excuse is in place. "She didn’t X!" they can say. She did it wrong, they can say. And then, they always say, "I’m not saying she deserved to be raped, BUT..." You can ignore the rest. The bolded part is the point of the exercise.
— How To Be Part Of The Problem

BASICALLY, AMEN TO THIS LIST.

OH HOW I LOVE NUMBER 8. SO MUCH. THANK YOU, PERSON WHO WROTE THIS, FOR FLIPPING THAT AWFUL 'SHE LEAD HIM ON' EXCUSE ON IT'S HEAD.

Btw, I heart your fondness for layouts by [livejournal.com profile] grrliz, she's PRO. This one is very pleasingly symmetrical :P And it makes it look like your Juno icon is considering your header :DDD

DON'T PANIC

We celebrate peace. Yet we pay no attention to the ways of curing aggression in human beings. And when one sees in psychoanalysis hostility disappearing as people conquer their fears, one wonders if the cure is not there.
