  •  What has me worried about you is that you seem, (0+ / 0-)

    both by this comment and others, to have little grasp of how much responsibility to avoid being raped is already placed on women, how men have been excused for raping because of the way a woman was dressed or how late she was out or that she'd gone out with the asshole and should have known better.  You seem to think that "teaching" us even more that we have to live in constant fear and that if we are so foolish as to want to just be able to live a normal life - or what is normal for men, well, we just have to be taught that if we do that, it'll be our fault.  I don't imagine you actually meant that, but think about it a bit.  Try not to be narcissistic about a subject that really has nothing to do with you, except in regard to your attitude about it.

    You have no concept how much women are already taught that.  

    Call that "provoking" you if you choose.  I call it having little sympathy with someone who is teaching men yet seems to have made little effort to obtain knowledge about what women are taught and how much their lives and decisions are already centered around trying to protect themselves.

    •  Wow. You have projected quite a bit onto my posts. (0+ / 0-)

      I don't think I'll convince you that I'm not the person you've decided I am.

      Maybe you'll re-read my posts and think differently. Or maybe you'll be confused by them and ask for clarification.

      I'm not going to participate in your casting me as some sort of villian. I volunteered for a rape awareness seminar for college first years.

      That's it. If you aren't a college first year in a "rape awareness seminar" then I'm not actually trying to teach you anything, so you need not feel condescended to.

      Talk about narcissism.
