I'm not sure why you feel these points have to be made, as they are made all the time. All rape prevention programs are currently aimed at women. We are told all these things. Don't walk alone after dark. Don't dress slutty. Don't drink too much.
The post was aimed at men for a reason. It was written in reaction to the guys who come into rape conversations and exclaim, "But I'm not like that!" Have you ever seen a woman stand up in a conversation about rape and say, "But I would never rape anyone!" Of course not, because it's
beside the point
. Rape is a problem regardless. Cereta's post challenged guys to stop protesting and either start addressing the problem or leave us to deal with it ourselves.
The post was aimed at men because men are the ones who need to catch up.
(http://cereta.livejournal.com/652008.html?thread=12282600#t12282600) was a particularly pertinent one.
