rape campaign is a bit anemic

Is this really helpful? There is a campaigned video of over how women shouldn’t become victims of Rape???

I get that they are saying be smart about alcohol consumption and the like. But it is painting it in a light as if it is their fault the treacherous act occurs. And then almost padding the ego’s of the guys by ‘reminding’ them to ask for sex. To use a UK phrase, this is daft! It is a campaign solely based on fear. It is one thing to make people aware and encourage good decisions it is another to create a worldview rife with fear, don’t get me wrong i disagree with the rape and get what the underlying message is but come on, show a little respect for both genders here. I am sure their intentions are pure, but the medium and the message don’t line up…
