Men! Take care over the festive season…
Be careful over the festive season!
If you must go out and use alcohol then remember these simple rules:
10 Sexual Assault Prevention Tips Guaranteed to Work!
- Don’t put drugs in people’s drinks in order to control their behaviour
- When you see someone walking by themselves, leave them alone
- If you stop to help someone with car problems, remember not to assault them
- Take care not to open an unlocked door or window when not invited
- If you are in a lift and someone else gets in, be careful – remember not to assault them
- Take care when in a laundrette, remember that people go to laundrettes to do their washing, do not attempt to assault someone who is alone in a laundrette
- Use this simple BUDDY SYSTEM: If you really are unable to stop yourself assaulting people, ask a friend to stay with you at all times while you are out in public
- Be honest with people, don’t pretend to be a caring friend in order to gain the trust of someone you want to assault, always tell someone first if you are planning to assault them. If you don’t communicate your intentions the other person may assume that you do not plan to rape or assault them
- Take care, remember it is illegal and wrong to have sex with someone who is asleep or unconscious, every year lots of men end up in prison for rape – don’t be one of them
- Carry a whistle or rape alarm (these are bulky items that look like a marker pen that women are expected to carry around with them at all times, perhaps a female friend could lend you one) then if you are worried you might accidentally assault someone you can hand the alarm to a friend or passerby so they can use it to alert the authorities and stop you from doing something you would regret
(Please note that if you can refrain from assaulting anyone who lives with you then the authorities would prefer it if you stayed indoors rather than attempting to go out and enjoy yourself, especially between the hours of 9pm and 2.30am over the holiday season. Many thanks for your attention.)
