The Sexist relays to us a list of “tips” from a police department’s sexual assault prevention page, the worse list of tips ever. Some highlights:
The three main reasons women make easy targets for random acts of violence are:
* Lack of awareness (you MUST know where you are & what’s going on around you.)
* Body language (keep your head up, swing your arms, stand straight up)
* Wrong place, wrong time (DON’T be walking alone in an alley, or driving in a bad neighborhood at night)
Women are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT, it may get you raped, or killed.
If you don’t have a cell phone, shame on you.
The comments from The Sexist blogger are pretty funny too.
