Discouraging the perpetrators. That's a difficult thing. There are a lot of evil bastards out there who are never going to change. They are the ones who seem the most normal and respectable and no one has a clue what they are really like.

The ones that can be discouraged are drunken errors of judgement, or when peer pressure is involved.

Guys need to step up, and girls do too. There seems to be an expectation of it being a one way thing. Women need to look out for each other too, and women need to be somewhat appreciative of men trying to help out (at least to the point of not throwing a drink in their face - I think I read that in one of the comments on Cereta's post, though it may have been somewhere else).

Every time I've seen something telling men what they can do to help prevent rape I have never seen anything listing what most women do every day as a matter of course. That can only feed in to the perception of everything being one way as I'm sure it won't occur to some guys to research further and they will be left thinking that they are the only ones expected to do anything

Sorry I've taken so long to respond
