Well, how do you teach a woman not to get raped? You can do everything possible and it still may happen.
Women are taught not to be in these situations, guys need to realize even when women are in these situations, they don't take advantage of it.

That's true it happens often with relationships that have some form of domestic violence.
It can also happen when a woman is drugged/drunk or vulnerable and alone with a man where there is no trust.
And these women find it very hard to come forward and admit sexual assault, they also find it hard to come forward and say they have been hit at all.
Immense shame surrounds women who go through this. So its a difficult one.

No, not all of them. If you would read and listen, many are rapes of opportunity. Some men are taught growing up that a passed out female is free game. She shouldn't have been drinking, she must want it, she can't say no. These all justify the guys bad behavior. It is psychology.

Ok, in case I am not being clear enough:
The problem with "Teaching men not to rape" and "Teaching men not to beat their spouses" etc etc....
It implies that only men do it. Not true, and is a horrible thing to be teaching.
There are sick and twisted men and women out there. I do not enjoy being looked at as a potential rapist simply because I am a man. In fact, it pisses me off. How about "Teaching humans to respect each other"?
I hope that is clear enough, because I can't think of a simpler way to put it.

Can you please stop saying the same thing over and over again as if it refutes the arguments made against it dozens of times? At this point I have to wonder if there's a hidden motive here to just aggravate people.
I'll ask again, how is it relevent what the "majority of cases" are? What does that have to do with anything?
Some men rape. Fact.
Some women rape. Fact.
Therefore, only men should be educated on rape.
This is what you're saying, do you honestly not see how it sounds a little retarded?edit on 27-9-2013 by LightOrange because: (no reason given)
