Rape happens because men are sexual animals.
Women are usually victimized by someone they know. Who you associate with and what you do are primary considerations. Sexual assaults usually take place indoors, so who you let into your home or apartment (or where you go) is crucial. Consider the following statistics from the US Department of Justice: Victims knew their offenders in about 5 in 10 violent crimes against men and 7 in 10 violent crimes against women In 2008 females experienced about 552,000 nonfatal violent victimizations (rape/sexual assault, robbery, or aggravated or simple assault) by an intimate partner (a current or former spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend).
When she says "don't get raped" isn't the ultimate question here, why does rape happen? Rape happens because men are sexual animals. That is, men by nature - especially in the social and political climate in which we live - tend to follow their balls over their brains. This is just the general original state in which the male human specimen functions, prior to the imposition of reason on his behavior. At this state, this is sadly man's general inclination. Now, why do some man actually go through with the act of rape? Undoubtedly, the chief and motivating force of the act is sexual lust for the victim. On his mind is not 'I want to over-power her' but rather, to put it bluntly, I want to F*ck her. The means by which effects this end is physical force. So the ultimate issue then is the moral state of any individual man. However, no one can be told how to think and act, and much less can their weak moral views be elevated above raw sexual lust. In times when a man rapes a woman, it is an expression firstly of a completely dissolute mind, and secondarily, a man of intense sexual frustration. When a woman is told "don't dress like a whore", as Krista Ford told Toronto women, she obviously meant it as a practical measure. Rape occurs because dissolute men become attracted to woman that catch their attention; it stands to reason that the more scantly dressed you are, the more likely you will fall under their radar, as this tends to be how men, and in general, people think. Therefore, that asian girl holding a picture which complains about instructing woman to take precautions like dressing more moderately to avoid increasing the likelihood of getting raped is an essentially political act which subordinates the personal safety of women to the political goal of changing people perceptions. But the perceptions being forced on us don't square with reality. Rape happens because sexually frustrated men commit a horrendous moral offense, but the issue isn't resolved by telling women to 'stand up for your right to dress as you want', but rather, analyzing the deeper issues beneath the surface which encourages the type of behavior which sees a man commit to an action so obviously heinous. At root here is over sexualization in society, and a lack of a sense of morality in the popular culture. In other words, people subjected to a daily diet of hip hop, trance, house, reality tv shows, family guy, clubs, alcohol, drugs, etc, are not going to be 'convinced' to respect woman because a campaign is telling them they should do it. These feminists have highly unreasonable expectations. The only moral advice, then, appears to be in line with the evidence. The evidence suggests that if a woman cares to protect herself from being sexually violated, it's in her personal interest to dress in a manner that doesn't make her stick out like a sore thumb.

same with the over generalization that men think with their balls.
Power, Abuse, Lust, its a complex issue and over simplifying it down to "male lust" Is just as much as a mistake as anything else.
Uhhh the vast majority of psychologist will agree that rape is not a sexual act.
ughh the 'vast' majority of the 'vast majority' of psychologists have a political agenda.
