Sexual Assault Prevention Tips Guaranteed to Work!

[image is from here]

I do not know the author of this list but wish I did. I think it's brilliant. The list was sent to me by a feminist friend.

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 commiting a crime--no matter how “into it” others appear to be.

What a great list! Reversal is one of THE most powerful tools of radical feminism EVER invented. Thank you Mary Daly for codifying "reversal."

I don't think men understand the term "imposed" because all they do is impose upon women all the time, everywhere. Ever have a group of women going out, and then having men say "what are you women doing all alone?" They impose. They don't change, they feel entitled to constand interruption and imposition upon women. They get used to the social imposition, and this only goes into the sexual.

Yes, Mary's discussion of patriarchal reversals has been enormously helpful in my own effort to "see things for what they are" not as how men delusionally and self-servingly imagine them to be.

Yes, this matter of men imposing on women needs more discussion here. I've often told the heterosexual men I know to stop approaching women you don't know. Please just stop it. And there are so many arguments men give for why that won't happen.

I wish there were electric collars on men so that any time they made a move towards a woman, with the intent to do what you and I would call "impose themselves" (they would call anything else but), the collar would elicit a shock sufficient to get them to stop in their tracks. Men enjoy shocking canines this way--I've seen men enjoy doign it. So clearly it's "acceptable behavior" to do to men too, right?

I like the idea of the shock collars being put on all men, say starting at the age of 5 or so. Any girl or woman who obected to being "imposed upon" would just push the button and "shcok." If we did this 24-hours a day to all men worldwide, I wonder how long it would take to train them not to "impose" themselves in any way upon women or girls?

Let's have a week, where men are not allowed to talk to any women at all, unless the woman talks to them first. Wouldn't that be interesting.

But still, the shock collars have their appeal.
