There's only one risk factor for rape

This is an excellent campaign and I wish you all the best with it.

I've worn short skirts and low cut tops many times, and not been raped. I've been drunk many times, and not been raped. I've flirted with and kissed men in bars on several occasions, and not been raped. I've taken men home with me occasionally, and not been raped.

The time I was raped, there was one risk factor and one only: the presence of a rapist.

....the responsibility and blame for rape lies entirely with the man who has chosen that behaviour. The majority of men should unite in outrage at this insult to their and our humanity.
