Having you read the slightly smaller text near the bottom? It says:Nocola said:I thought the ad was detailing a girl that got forced to the ground and raped? Or is it detailing a girl that gets drunk and sleeps with a random guy, because the first situation is rape. The second one is a drunken one night stand.MasochisticAvenger said:Which is exactly the situation the ad is detailing. The ad is telling people to watch out for their friends when they drink, but a lot of people here can't see past "TELLING THE WOMAN TO TAKE PRECAUTIONS WHEN SHE GOES OUT!? YOU'RE BLAMING WOMAN FOR GETTING RAPED!!!!!!!"Nocola said:I think there's a difference between going home with a guy, sleeping with him and regretting it in the morning - and rape. But in the situation you detailed I agree.MasochisticAvenger said:I think it is entirely the girl's fault if she chooses to get drunk enough that she would agree to have sex with someone she really didn't want to have sex with. Really, it's disgusting that "rape" can just be used as a justification by women to remove blame for their own actions. That shit really needs to stop.Nocola said:I think that it is entirely the rapists fault if a girl gets raped, BUT there is definitely some good in teaching young girls that hey, maybe it's not a good idea to get black out drunk at a club.
No rapists = no rape, that's a given. If the guy wasn't gonna rape the girl the issue would be solved, but purposely getting yourself absolutely destroyed isn't gonna help your odds. Does that make sense?
It's not blaming the victim to teach girls how to protect themselves from rapists.
Given that we hold people accountable for their actions while drunk in every other department, I really don't see how women keep getting away with this.
Say I got drunk, and gambled all my money away at the Casino. Would I be able to go back to that casino the next day and say "Look, I know I lost all my money here, but I was drunk at the time so give it back". Of course not!
Is it really fair to compare someone who forces a woman to the ground, forcibly removes her clothes and shoves his penis into her while she begs him to stop with someone who had sex with a drunk girl? Because that's basically what this is doing here.
"When your friends drink, they can end up making bad decisions. Like going home with someone they don't know very well.
Decisions like that leave them vulnerable to dangers like date rape. Help your friends stay in control and stay safe."
