Don’t Rape Anyone Tonight

The Sussex Police tonight warned women not to walk home alone:

This is because there have been two “night-time sex attacks” in Brighton in two days.

I would have liked Sussex Police to have taken the opportunity to warn local men that one of them is a sex attacker and that they could and should act together to prevent assaults taking place.

The Department for Making Hope Possible says there are good campaigns out there which place responsibility for sexual assault where it belongs – with the perpetrator. Like this one from Lambeth:

There is also this poster from Tayside:

And this broader campaign from Scotland:

So that’s how it’s done.

Want to know what proportion of women raped while wearing short skirts were “asking for it”? That Pie Chart is here:

Have a great night. Look after each other.

Happy New Year.
