Sexual assault prevention tips

1.  Don’t put drugs in people’s drinks in order to control their behaviour.

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.  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.

7.  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 that 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.

8.  Don’t forget: you can’t have sex with someone unless they are awake. If they are asleep or unconscious, it’s not called ‘having sex’.

9.  Carry a whistle. If you’re worried you might assault someone accidentally, you can hand the whistle to the person you’re with so that they can blow it if you do.

Love it. And in response to your label (facetious I know) no we are not there yet. Not by a long shot.

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of 'Are you letting your daughter leave the house dressed like that' we had "Are you letting your son leave the house with attitudes like that?'

Kerryn, you may enjoy this.

It's simultaneously hilarious and horrifying, and I second Mindy.

Yes, I saw that one! And my very favourite font, too. How apt.

Have just read a report about the brutal rape of a NZ tourist walking along the beach in Scarborough, WA.

The West Australia reports that 'the police and Premier Colin Barnett have reminded women to be careful in isolated places.'

I remembered this list, and have just emailed Mr Barnett and suggested that he has perhaps reminded the wrong people.
