Ten rape prevention tips:
1. Don’t put drugs in women’s drinks.
2. When you see a woman walking by herself, leave her alone.
3. If you pull over to help a woman whose car has broken down, remember not to rape her.
4. If you are in an elevator and a woman gets in, don’t rape her.
5. When you encounter a woman who is asleep, the safest course of action is to not rape her.
6. Never creep into a woman’s home through an unlocked door or window, or spring out at her from between parked cars, or rape her.
7. Remember, people go to the laundry room to do their laundry. Do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.
8. Use the Buddy System! If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from raping women, ask a trusted friend to accompany you at all times.
9. Carry a rape whistle. If you find that you are about to rape someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.
10. Don’t forget: Honesty is the best policy. When asking a woman out on a date, don’t pretend that you are interested in her as a person; tell her straight up that you expect to be raping her later. If you don’t communicate your intentions, the woman may take it as a sign that you do not plan to rape her.
Rape prevention tips

I like people. i like hearing them talk about themselves. I like their stories, the ones about the first birthday they can remember or about the first time they got lost in a shopping mall. I like to keep listening until they get to that point where they disregard social etiquette. When they decide being honest is easier than pretending. When they tell you what they really think of a certain topic or person. Mostly, I like hearing them talk about themselves. Their fears, their insecurities, their greatest love and loss. When people are honest, it’s like a reintroduction. You meet who they really are. The man wearing the business costume is really a dreamer and the kid asking for change on the sidewalk is working on his first EP. My darling, listen to people when they talk and do so intently. When people sense they are being heard, they will give you something worth hearing.
So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly, because you tread on my dreams.
