    It`s trying to make the world understand that rape shouldn`t be so commonplace in a modern society. It`s asking a very obvious question or saying something very obvious but apparently doesn`t reach EVERY guy. Some of them might be your `friends`.

    really. So you think psychopathic rapists can be convinced to not rape just by people marching down a street? Get with reality. Women need to just learn to not put themselves in bad situations and with other circumstances, just carry self protection, LIKE A GUN.
    Also, the point about using this kind of effort to protest politicians from raping us Americans, MAKES PERFECT SENSE. Have a nice day, lady :)

    We`ve had these marches going past our window where a lot of women hold signs saying "take back the night" and "stop rape". The thing that slightly confuses me is... what exactly can be done to stop rape? Do they think that rapists are gonna go "Oh you didn`t want me to do that? Sorry. I`ll stop immediately". I obviously agree that rape should never happen, but I also think that murders should stop. Yet, they NEVER WILL and there`s nothing we can do to stop them.

    What CAN be done is to change attitudes towards rape, to stop blaming the victims. It`s still so incredibly common to hear "Yeah she got raped, and that`s sad, but maybe she shouldn`t have worn a short skirt and walked through the park at night". I don`t care if I want to hang out in dark alleyways naked, no one has the right to rape me. I might be an idiot for doing so, but it still wouldn`t be my fault in any way.

    To be fair, there are women out there who cry rape as a way of getting out of the fact they got drunk and shagged an ugly bloke... And rape isn`t entirely one sided either (no pun intended); there has been many well documented cases of men being raped. The only way to stop this crime is by;
    improving social education both at school AND at home
    Legalising prostitution
    Harsher punishments for convicted rapists, where the jury are sure beyond all reasonable doubt that the accused is actually guilty.

    first of all, i have a name. so please don`t call me "lady". secondly, politicians can`t do a DAMN THING...rape is already illegal! what else can they do!? if a rapist is going to commit the crime, no law will stop him. he`s not thinking about the consequences when he goes through with it.

    the point of these rallies is to RAISE AWARENESS OF RAPE AND VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN. so many rapes go unheard and unreported each year, and that needs to stop. this is NOT aimed at rapists themselves...this rally is aimed toward SOCIETY AT LARGE.

    have a nice day :)

    "To be fair, there are women out there who cry rape as a way of getting out of the fact they got drunk and shagged an ugly bloke"

    It`s still partially the man`s responsibility to get actual consent. alcohol takes away your ability to make a smart, rational decision. i`m not saying the woman is completely without blame, but she may very well feel like it`s rape when she wakes up naked next to some man and can`t remember what happened.

    Uhm, no. You forget that rape isn`t just a sex thing, it`s a power trip. Men don`t rape women (or vice versa) just because they want to get off. People rape because they get a high off of controlling another human being.

    To be fair pui, research has found that the primary drive for rape IS in fact sexual desire and frustration. It is most often not a control or power thing as has commonly been believed. So legalizing prostitution might in fact be a good method of decreasing rapes.
    And no I don`t have a source I could link to, as I heard this in a lecture. Still very reliable information.

    @moefreak, in order to rape someone, you need to dehumanize or devalue your victim to some degree. At some point a rapist decides that their own wants trump those of their victim. Even if a desire for sexual release is part of it, rape always involves an abuse of power.

    Pui, that isn`t necessarily the case. Although yes, since rape is by definition against the will of the victim, and will thus most certainly dehumanize or devalue them, that doesn`t have to be the motive for the crime. It may be that what motivated them was a simple although consuming sexual desire, which could have been directed towards a prostitute had one been more readily available.

    "I don`t care if I want to hang out in dark alleyways naked, no one has the right to rape me. I might be an idiot for doing so, but it still wouldn`t be my fault in any way."
    I totally agree. Sometimes I cover myself in meat and go tease my neighbour`s Doberman, since they don`t have any right to eat me alive. I might be an idiot for doing so, but it still wouldn`t be my fault in any way.

    But seriously, what you said is just stupid. Even if legally it`s not your fault, you could have just prevented the rape from ever happening. Just like when a car isn`t stopping in the zebra crossing, and he should, people won`t throw themselves to the middle of the road even if it`s not their fault. If you throw yourself in front of a moving car then you`re begging to get killed. The same way if you go dressed like a whore to the park at night you`re begging to get raped.
    It`s called common sense, you it and you might live longer. Or at least not get raped as often.

    So if the man was drunker than her then she would be the rapist, right?
    It`s entirely her fault if she feels like she was raped, next time have friends watching over you or don`t get wasted at all. I mean, if she`s drunk the guy she slept with was probably drunk too, wouldn`t it be unfair to blame him?

    ...which could have been directed towards a prostitute had one been more readily available.
    First of all, most rapists know their victims. Their desire is not aimed at any person, it`s usually aimed at a certain person. Rape where the victim has never seen or heard of her rapist before is much rarer than it`s made out to be, so I fail to see how legalizing protestation would help all that much.

    Secondly, I still think that rape is always partially a power trip. A normal person may desire someone, but since they desire them they would likewise not want to hurt them. A rapist`s desire however includes hurting that person.

    Canoas, how exactly should I dress so as not to accidentally give people permission to rape me? How long does my skirt need to be? Maybe I should just wear a veil, and not go outside unless accompanied by a male member of the family. Oh wait, there are places where that`s how it is, and women STILL GET RAPED at least as frequently, if not more so.
    And your car analogy fails big time because you`re essentially saying that men rape women by accident, just like they might drive over someone by accident.

    Pui, I am fully aware that rape is most common in relationships, and with people who already know each other. Wouldn`t it still apply that the knowledge that a safe, legal prostitute is available nearby decrease the chances that a husband rapes his wife? I`m not saying that this is absolutely the case, but it is certainly a possibility.
    And you can believe whatever you want about what motivates rape, but when rapists are interviewed about their motivation, the most common reason is desire and sexual frustration.

    moefreak,
    In my car analogy it wasn`t the car who failed to stop, he never intented to stop, it was the person that even though he knew the car wouldn`t stop still tried to cross the crossing. It`s common sense that if a car is speeding near a zebra crossing, he probably won`t stop.

    Maybe don`t go to the park alone at night? It`s not only about the cloths, but also where you`re at.
    And I fail to see how a girl wearing a veil and accompanied by a male family member is more likely to get raped than a girl wearing a miniskirt who likes to visit the park all alone at night.

    "Also, prostitutes cost money. Rape is free."
    Are you trying to defend the rapists?

    I`m not denying that sexual desire isn`t the motivation, but it`s still twisted sexual desire. It`s not normal sexual desire which normal people experience. A rapist might think his actions were based on "normal" emotions, but that doesn`t mean they were normal. If someone murders their wife because she committed adultery, well most people would agree that anger would be a normal response to finding out your spouse was cheating on you. However, it still takes a special kind of person to kill another human being, no matter what "normal" emotion was behind it. Same applies to rape.

    Rape is illegal too moefreak-- I don`t even get why you`re defending rapists. Prostitution may be illegal, but there are still prostitutes everywhere (and guess what? they get raped too) so I don`t think the legality is really what`s stopping men from going to them rather than raping somebody. If they`re going to rape somebody, then that`s what they`re going to do. It`s not really a matter of convenience.

    Canoas, I don`t understand your point. Are you saying that it`s common sense that there are men in parks who will rape you and thus you shouldn`t go to parks? And if you do, you can only blame yourself for getting raped? See I`m not arguing that all women should hang out naked in alleyways, just like I`m not saying that you should cross the road without looking both ways, even if you are at a zebra crossing.
    However, in both cases, getting raped or getting run over is absolutely not the fault of the victim. And furthermore, the situation is not comparable unless the driver of the car PURPOSEFULLY drove over the pedestrian. Perhaps even pretended to be stopping, and then suddenly sped up.

    Pui, by the way, I`m not saying that legalizing prostitution would stop rape either. I`m not an idiot. I`m only saying that there is a chance that it might help to decrease rapes, and could thus be looked into. Here`s a paper that states "Using this model, it is estimated that if prostitution were legalized in the United States, the rape rate would decrease by roughly 25% for a decrease of approximately 25,000 rapes per year." link

    Ok, I hate the "taken advantage of while drunk" excuse. It`s one thing if you are unconcious or say no and he still has sex with you. It`s another if you get so plastered that you decide to do something you wouldn`t normally do. Grow up and take responsibility for your choices. I hate it when girls make bad decisions and blame it on booze. If you make bad decisions while drunk, maybe you shouldn`t drink.

    @moefreak: It`s true. The Netherlands has one of the lowest rape rates in the world. I think that it`s partially because rape is a power thing generally, and when you put it out in the open like that, everyone is equally empowered by sex, instead shamed or considered "seedy" in some cases. Plus I think it`s a good idea to legalize prostitutes just for health and safety reasons, for both the girls and their clients.

    I find it funny though that there are all these guys saying "Poor me, I had sex with a girl when she was wasted and agreed to it, and now she`s claiming rape. Why doesn`t she just not get drunk if she can`t control herself". Question is, why can`t men just not have sex with wasted girls? If you think there`s a good chance that she wont remember anything the next day, then don`t have sex with her. Easy as that.
    Although false accusations of rape are a serious problem in some situations, I`ll grant you that.

    @banjolegs: I`ve got to agree with Whoopi on that. It was "rape" but more like statutory rape. It wasn`t foreceful, there was no "saying no". He did ply her with booze, but in an interview the girl who was "raped" said she chose to drink it and let him have sex with her. She even said that he was quite tender and caring. Bad decisions all around, but not the same as violent rape.

    I`m not pinning the responsibility on them. I agree that if a woman says yes while drunk it is still consent, and thus not technically rape, especially if the man is equally drunk. However, if the woman should get blamed for being too drunk, then the man should also be blamed for having sex with someone who is too drunk.
    And it`s tricky to say when it still counts as consent. I mean, if a woman is practically unconscious and manages to slur out a feeble "yes", without even knowing what she`s agreeing to, then I`m pretty sure that can still constitute as rape.

    moefreak, I never said it`s their fault, but it`s not a wise thing to do. Even if you`re dressed casually if you go to shady places you might get mugged. I`m not saying you should fear parks and dark hallways, but if you see something suspicious then just walk around or don`t go near that place at all.
    And about the car, I said it twice already, the car wasn`t going to stop. What doubt can there be?

    Broadicea, is that a real question? I never even said that the rapist was a man. And if a rapist is determined to rape the next person that crosses the park that night, I think it`s comparable to a speeding car.

    Pui, I was joking = P

    TxP, so you`re going to trust that the shady looking guy in the park is going to do what`s morally right and will not rape you? I wish you good luck. Also, it`s illegal for dogs to attack humans, no matter the circumstance.

    to Moefreak again. What if the guy was drunk too? Should he also claim that she raped him? What then? Both go to jail because they raped each other? I don`t think it would make any sense.
    If you don`t want it, then have your friends watch over you or don`t get wasted.

    If she is basically unconscious than yes, but if she`s just drunk, then the responsibility is on her to make that decision for herself, drunk or not. People do stupid things while drunk. Suck it up or don`t drink.

    the bottom line is that rape is NOT a sexual crime but a violent crime and driven by the same forces that drive other violent crimes.

    I am nto sure why this is so hard for people to understand when one convicted rapist after another has stated clearly they dont do it for sex but for power, control and to inflict pain and humiliation on their victim.

    the arguments over what a girl was wearing, how much she drank, where she was at when it happened were created by ethically challanged lawyers looking to get their clients off and put a "W" on their record.

    a man knows when a woman is saying or displaying NO...that is not the issue, come on people let`s leave the 1980s arguments over rape back in that decade and get with the current thinking on this.

    I agree, CmdrBittles. And Canoas, what? If they both agreed to it then of course it`s not rape. Even if one of them was drunk, or they were both drunk. As long as both of them were conscious enough, and both of them consented. However, it`s difficult to tell when someone is so drunk that they aren`t exactly aware of what`s happening anymore. But the argument still stands that as well as saying that women shouldn`t get drunk if they might agree to something they normally wouldn`t, then if men don`t want to be accused of raping a drunk person, then they shouldn`t have sex with a drunk person.

    I`m pretty sure we`ve all been super wasted/trashed and I think we all agree that isn`t necessarily that we didn`t know what we were doing but more likely that we were so drunk we just didn`t CARE.

    When you`re drunk, no matter how much, you`re usually aware of the situation at hand. So even in that case, I don`t think a sober guy having sex with a very drunk girl is rape (although it may be taking advantage of the situation..not rape however).

    Jamie, I`m not sure what your sources are, but I have been told by my fairly reputable psychology professor that most rapists in fact state that their primary motivation as being sexual desire. Although many do claim their motivation to be a desire to control or anger.
    It`s not as clear cut as you claim.

    moefreak, please explain how you determine if a person is "conscious enough" for sex. And if someone isn`t "conscious enough" then they should probably be carried to an hospital. I doubt someone who would have sex with a girl passed out on the floor would say "Poor me, I had sex with a girl when she was wasted and agreed to it, and now she`s claiming rape. Why doesn`t she just not get drunk if she can`t control herself"
    Just because something is morally incorrect it doesn`t mean people will not do it. Start being more careful and you won`t have anything to worry about.

    feiku, I`m talking so drunk that you`re just about to pass out. I have seen friends of mine be so drunk that their eyes weren`t focusing, their speech was slurred to the point of not making any sense, and they were completely unable to walk or even stand on their own. I don`t mean "wasted" in the sort of "I`m wasteeed, oh my god, I`m gonna flash those strangers" sort of way.

    Canoas, I can`t define "conscious enough". That`s why I`m glad I`m not a judge. I was just illustrating that it`s difficult to say when consent can reasonably be given.
    And I know that just because something is wrong will not mean that people will stop doing it. I`m not trying to stop rape from happening (because I know that`s impossible), but rather change the attitudes that people have to it.

    I think he just chose his words wrong. I don`t think he`s saying you would deserve it, I think he`s trying to make a statement about women who refuse to believe that sometimes things like clothing or geography do play a part in things like rape. Unfortunately though, dressing a certain way and going certain places can up your chances of having things like rape happen. It shouldn`t, but it does. There are unfortunately some women who don`t take precautions in avoiding these acts because they think the responsibility is solely on someone else. It sucks, and it`s wrong, but we need to watch out for ourselves, because no one else will.

    I once read a series of interviews conducted with men who were in prison for rape. They were asked a series of questions about what they look for when choosing a victim (these were random rapes, not familiar ones) and then main things looked for were long hair, skirts, high heels and women carrying things. So how we dress and look do play a part in increasing our chances.

    Take Back the Night even drew many people hoping to educate others about sexual violence

    Strange because those signs suggest a very naive approach to dealing with sexual violence. I can`t think of a bigger waste of time than protesting rape. Instead these women should be learning how to
    1. crush a person`s trachea
    2. hyper-extend their elbow
    3. push their knee cap through the back of their leg with the bottom of their foot
    4. tear off a human ear
    5. break the false ribs
    6. break their fingers
    and most important
    7. not get so drunk they are incapable of defending themselves.

    @Issathefiend:

    Say you`re standing facing your attacker. Simply put the sole of your right foot (toes pointing to your right) on their left knee, and with a hard, deliberate force, extend (straighten) your leg so your foot continues moving down at an angle through their knee to a point directly behind them. It works even better if you grap their shirt and pull them towards you as you push your foot into their knee. Even if you don`t tear any ligaments, they`ll be limping home.

    I think people claiming that this is an obvious statement are missing the point.
    For example, the idea of the sign is to put the onus on the perpetrator rather than the victim. So instead of engaging in the "slut" shaming and victim blaming that often takes place, responsibility is put back on the people that are committing the rapes.

    Just looking at some of the comments here tells me that while I know it`s obvious, others don`t. They insist on blaming women for their behaviour that "caused" the rape.

    The only thing I`m offended by is the fact that your parents didn`t kill you when they realized you have an IQ below 50. The vast, vast VAST majority of rapes are white on white. Everyone I have ever talked to before now has known that. You are the first idiot to claim that black on white is the least bit common.

    @brassbull another good technique is to put your fingers through their wind pipe because it takes relatively little strength or skill to do and not what is commonly expected by the attacker. Ripping off an ear or poking out an eye is relatively easy to do as well!

Maybe you should just swallow both barrels right now because the real world would literally destroy you. I know my joke was in poor taste, that`s the point! I don`t think that "fighting for the little guy" on the INTERNET is going to get you any action from any girls any time soon. So, you can sit there and get angry at a joke (which is the opposite of what a joke is designed to do) and become a keyboard warrior and lead a crusade for what is "Righteous and Noble!" (said with an English accent for maximum effect), OR, you can relax and learn to laugh at life`s little horrors and you won`t be bothered so much when bad things happen to you. It`s your choice; either way, stop being a douchebag on the internet.

    You dudes(ettes) are making the mistake lumping different type of people in to one category called "rapists."
    1) Psychopaths - "I`ve been watching you and now, I have you. I don`t care what you want or how you feel, in fact, I laugh at your pain."
    2) Sociopaths - "I`ve been watching you and I`m sorry but I can`t help myself. Your weakness makes me feel stronger."
    3) Frustrated (apathy to the point of psychopathic tendencies) - "God! I`d give anything to get off. Just this once. No one will know."
    4) Mischievous (apathy also psychopathic tendencies) - "Let`s get these little bitches drunk (so they won`t care to say no) and screw their brains out!"
    5) Apathetic - "We`re and you must honor >>your obligations.<<" Younger 5 says:" is doing it right now!"

    6) Dean Martin - "Baby: It`s cold outside!" She says:"Hey! What`s in this drink."

    All 6 of these people are rapists. They definitely don`t all have the same motivation. 2`s don`t even know why they want it.

    Jamie, types 1 and 2 are least common. The conditions that create 1 and 2 take a lifetime to play out. It is also very common to classify people as 1 when they are actually type 3.

    The conditions that cause 3 to be 3 are most common:
    - Brought up right-wingish where it`s not even safe to talk about sex
    - In a relationship that feels binding which lacks/prevents safe outlet

    I`m with Moe`: If prostitution was legal and people felt safe using it, rapes would decrease for lack of demand. Moe` gave a link earlier.

    I also feel that religion created more 3`s than it ever prevented.

    What would help reduce the number of 1`s and 2`s is better parenting. That`s a recursive thing.
    Also, there is need to be abl

    Also, there is need to be able to identify and single out 1`s while they are still strangling kittens, before they more up to humans.

    4`s and 5`s just need better guidance.
    5 is in a relationship with someone that does not want the same thing.
    If only 5 and 6 had access to people that actually WANT a nice ass ramming...

    6`s needs better game. If you have to drug people to get some, you whole existence is a lie, isn`t it?

    "yuck, i wouldn`t rape (or have consensual sex with, for that matter) any of them."
    So... Is it normal for you to size someone up for a rape?

    Your writing "i wouldn`t rape" implies that there IS someone that you would rape.
    How long have you had these feelings of rape urge?

    Tell me about your mother...

    i hate to perpetuate this argument, although it seems that you`ve somewhat conceded to the forces of the internet, but the "buh dum-tiss!" was an onomotopoeia for the punchline drum.

    lerie:
    "I say we teach men they are responsible for raping women. Short skirts, alcohol and culture are not responsible. Men are responsible of rape. Period."

    Ummm... no. All rapes are responsible by men?

    While rape by men is much more common, women commit sexual offenses also. There are different statistics online and in books. I am not pushing any of them, though. (Sorry, I`m just sick of "the man" getting blamed for EVERYTHING!!!)

    Thanks for playing. Please collect your parting gift on the way out the door!

Do you see where this is going? Did you get "teh intarnetz" like 2 weeks ago or something? Am I arguing with a retard here...? People like you make me wish abortions were mandatory for some families...

    In the time i wasted reading through all these comments(i spent about 15 - 20 mins reading and rereading) i couldnt help but wonder... how many people (note not just women) have been raped while i read this??... at least the people in the pic are out there trying to do something.. i dunno bring awareness ect.. while we are all just sitting here on IAB.. All of you seem to have such BIG opinions and ideas that could make things (in your mind/world) better... so what have you done about it yet?? Are you out there trying to stop rape? Voicing your opinions on IAB isnt really going to help.. venture outside your house and do something that you think will help stop rapists.. if everyone did that then im sure together we all could at least improve the statistics!
    Heck if you see someone being raped Do something about it! i know for one in Aus THAT is a big problem... people see it and walk right on past.. its not your problem right??

    I think why you never hear about women raping men is that most men wouldn`t consider it traumatizing. They`d be like "oh, I was forced to have sex....woe is me. Wanna go again?"

    Women, just some advice. If a guy plans on raping you, he doesn`t care if you say no. In fact most likely the whole time he is raping you, you will be begging him not to, and screaming "No, rape, rape, rape!" Fact is, he doesn`t want your permission. So telling a would be rapist that he needs to ask first, is as useful as telling a snake to or rabid dog not to attack you because you don`t like it. Fact is, they don`t care, and never will. That is why they rapped you in the first place.

    Lauryn the problem is that a rapist is not going to read any of those signs and be like. You know what, I should ask before I force a woman to have sexual intercourse with me. They don`t care and no amount of people holding paper with those words on them will change their minds. If they cared they wouldn`t be doing it in the first place. PS if I came across a guy trying to rape a woman I would beat the living poo out of him. That is what needs to be done to stop rape, not hold a sign up with words on it. Words are meaningless, even more so when people don`t care.

    deeplick... i do agree with you there... most people who rape (its not only guys at all!) Dont care / or they love it when you are screaming back NO NO NO at them!

    At school here we were taught NOT to scream out rape... we were taught to scream FIRE FIRE FIRE... as it was more likely that people would run to your aid, How sad is that??

    Also i never said signs were effective... i actually disagree with them, i just stated that more people should be "out there" (like the people in that pic) putting the msg across that rape is not acceptable!

    Also i think there are alot of ways (apart from protests, and signs) that are a plausable way of reducing the statistics, & rape crimes that happen to date... and i agreed with a few of the people on IAB on how that could be done,

    its just a case of more action less words.

    That`s a completely untrue and, to be blunt, very ignorant thing to say. The only difference, I believe, is that men are probably not as easily overpowered by women (in general, of course some cases can prove otherwise). The main reason you wouldn`t hear about such acts are that people are ashamed of them, both male and female. I, and I`m sure many other IABers, would appreciate it if you thought about what you`re saying before you say it.

    @Deeplick Eh...? If a woman doesn`t say "No!" or "Stop!" then it might as well have been consensual sex. Telling them to stop gives you an alibi that it was in fact rape, and you have every right to report them for it if so.

    Not that it would probably matter in most cases, but you never know I guess...

    Uh anyways... <_<; I wonder what that banner says?

    I see a lot of guys here bringing up the argument of "well men get raped too, so it`s not all about women". While this is true, 91% of rape victims are female, and 99% of rapists are male. So talking about rapists as if they were all male is fairly accurate.
    And yes, obviously, the men who rape are responsible for all the rapes they commit. Which is 99% of rapes. I know this seems obvious, but some people don`t seem to get it.

    They still look like morons to me, because they are morons.

    Also, SLC, "buh-dum tiss" does not automatically imply "I`m kidding, I know this isn`t true." Usually it means "HAHA I MAD A FUNY CUZ I LIKE STEROTYPS IM A RETARD."

    The point of this rally isn`t to convince sexual predators to stop raping, its to force the public to acknowledge the problem so that they can enforce stricter punishments on rapists; rapists are sick, depraved people and they should remain in jail for life not 6 to 10 years.

    Nuke:
    A) This may come as a shock to you and the people in the picture but, there really isn`t a union card carrying group of time clock punching rapists out there because
    B) Far and above, the majority of sex assaults are committed by people that
    -know their victim and deal with them on a regular basis
    -got carried away with the moment and
    -are otherwise normal individuals.
    They didn`t go out thinking: "Today I`m going to rape someone! I better put on a nicer shirt!"

    Actual serial predators are an ultra-minor fraction of criminals and, by your own admission, have a sickness.

    We, as a modern society, are failing to acknowledge criminal behavior as illness, having our standard response as "throw `em in a hole x-odd number of years."

    If, while they are in that hole, they are not treated and gaged as improved, we have missed an opportunity which costs doubly because

    -people that commit crimes do not expect to be caught so,
    -tougher punishments have been proven to NOT decrease crime per capita thus,
    -tougher punishments simply increase the amount of money spent on criminal housing.

    A prison is nothing more than "government funded education where people learn how to be even less sensitive and more self serving" if it does not include an army of a psychiatric staff and a real education system.
