Campaign reaction

One correction

While I fully approve of this campaign, and it's goal, there is something that some people on here don't understand: most rapes are not sexually motivated. They are a way for the attacker to gain power, which is what they truly want. True, there are some cases when the rapist, male or female, just wants sex, but not in most cases. That's one of the main reasons I don't agree when people say that wearing skimpy clothes is "asking for it". If she were asking for it, it wouldn't be rape, would it? I think there should still be some emphasis on protecting yourself, but not so much that it distracts from the fact that the rapist is the one to blame.
