sorry, actually you are right, and my sexism showed in that comment. Because while most rapes are perpetrated by men on women, not all are. And it was my own bias and not that of the organization she is working with, that was showing there. The general mantra is "Don't Rape" (as opposed to "don't get raped"). However, in my defense, in the situations she is working to prevent, rapes of college students, it is most likely that a man will rape a woman that he knows or is at least acquainted with, and truthfully not even consider it a rape. It’s really hard to prevent campus sexual assault when rapists don’t see themselves as rapists - Salon.com So, studies support that it could be a good thing to do. It would be a mandatory class for everyone, not just silly men, to recognize the scenarios and prevent the occurrence. It would be included as part of the entire orientation week of seminars and classes. It is about coming at the problem from every possible angle, and not just telling girls to not dress too sexy or not to drink, etc. But you are right, I was sexist there and for that I apologize.
