How can we prevent RAPE?

It is becoming a very great social problem, what can ladies do to prevent it and how males on the other hand be helpful in preventing this crime.

Report as

The first thing we need to do is stop telling women that they need to do something to prevent rape. That in essence, is telling guys that it's not their fault that they can't control themselves. We need to be teaching that no matter what a woman looks like, is dressed like, or how she acts - NO means NO.

Respect your answer, but still that wouldn't prevent RAPE practically, no matter how far we teach.
Report as
As a guy, I can say that telling girls they need to do something to prevent rape is telling me that there is someone out there smart enough to know that girls can actually do somethings to prevent rape. It's not telling me to go out and have a ball all because I can't control myself...

Men convicted of any type of sexual crime should be castrated.Women should be aware of their surrounds,know self defense and carry some type of protection i.e mace,a knife or gun.

So if two people are in love, but one is 18, and one is 17, the one who's 18 should be castrated. Or in the case of parents lying to get rid of a boyfriend that they don't like? Minors can get convicted of sex crimes too.

stachatory rape isnt really rape.. i dont think so unless the years are vastly apart.
Report as
There is, but unfortunately, that's not how the law works. the 18 year old committed a sex crime, as designated by the law. Which means if we were castrating people for sex crimes, he just got castrated.
Report as
It is according to the law, and thus the person committed a sex crime, in the eyes of the law.
Report as
This is why we have judges and jurys,no one would allow it to happen under those circumstances.

Really? My friend went to jail for a year, and had to put his name on a list of sex offenders. Because he was a few months older than his girlfriend.

Rape has nothing to do with sexual urges. It's about power. So castrating would not help.

Women can prevent rape by carrying a concealed hand gun, or even pepper spray. It is advisable not to walk alone at night as well. Other than that, it's the men who are the problem, not the women......

In India it is a sign of the deterioration of society, and may be a result of the increasing youthfulness of urban society. In America the amount of rape and other violent crimes has been on a long-term decrease, again likely a result of the graying of our population.

Rape has nothing to do with horny men. Rape is a HATE crime... not a sex crime. This is about a power issue. Not sex or love or anything like that. It is also possible for a woman to rape a man..... No where near as common but what it has happened.
Report as
Oh alright then Mr. know it all then what drives a man to rape a woman in the first place then? Lust, his deprived past, him with an obsessive behavior for control over them while doing it, or he had a bad lifetime experience with a girl before and it just lowers his self-esteem and confidence therefore driving him to wanting to rape. Either way I see it this way a shameful and degrading act of men doing this and I guess I were somewhat wrong on saying that in which you pointed out which was that the attractiveness of a woman doesn't really cause this to happen. Only in some case of if the woman or young girl were dressed in something less perspective I mean who knows it's just straight up SICK AND STUPID!
Report as
And yes you are quite right on the part of women being able to rape men too, but would have to use materials to do so. But I mean it's all just so damn wrong for both genders of man or woman to even be doing this, but is something we all got to deal with in our everyday lives along with whatever else the world with it's sick people who are so delighted in doing horrible things in their lives then there's the ones who have to suffer from these idiots wrong sick and cruel choices...
Report as
Wow... what a little tirade. I agree with the fact that it is sick and I also think that someone convicted of rape should face the death penalty. It is a very heinous crime.
The attractiveness of a woman is not what gets them raped Very old women and very young babies have been raped. NOT because they were attractive.... but because the rapist is evil. You asked what drives a man to rape?? Hatred... The need for power and control.... other than that I have NO idea. It is not lust.... I know that. It is not a sex crime. It is a hate crime.
I am sorry.... I do not understand your anger towards me. I dont feel as though I said anything wrong here.

Something men and boys can do is outwardly disapprove of companions who degrade women and girls. In my experience, men who don't rape shrug it off saying that they would never do that. The End. What they can do is talk to men who think going to the strip clubs is a good idea or who make raw comments about girls and women and their bodies. It is social pressure and leadership by men who respect women that will do the most good.

Rape is a hate crime. Not a sex crime. How many people go out and discourage white people to quit abusing black people.... or muslims to quite hating on the christians. It is very hard to tell who has that kind of hate inside them.... I agree though... Men shouldnt go to strip clubs... and women shouldnt dance at them.
Report as
Strip clubs are not the problem. They don't cause rape nor do the women who work there condone it.
Report as
Strip clubs add to it for some people. PORN is part of the problem. Read any of the biographies of Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy., Jeffery Dahmer..... all of them started looking at porn at an early age. Bundy helped profile these kinds of people before he was executed. We probably could have learned a lot more from him had he not been executed. This is not my opinion... This is all fact.
Report as
Again.... Rape is in the individual.. NOT all men are prone to rape someone and not all men that look at porn are going to go rape someone. These people that commit rape are incredibly sick individuals.
Report as
But all men can apply social pressure to friends and acquaintances who openly disrespect women to see that it is unacceptable. Social pressure is a huge motivator in terms of behaviour.
Report as
:Men can try that... but individuals that commit rape have a deeper problem. They have a mental illness. Mental illness cannot be cured through peer pressure.
Report as
Wonderful discussion once again thank you very much all of you for your helpful contribution and comments.
Report as
Ted Bundy was a psychopath who used his " research assistance" to buy himself more time from being executed. He fed the profilers what he thought they wanted, that is typical psychological manipulation. Porn does not cause rape. Rapist psychology varies, it's not one answer fits all pathology.
Report as
Ted Bundy DIDNT want more time. He knew that if he had more time he would escape again.... he knew he would kill again. He told people that. He was a psychopath... no doubt about it. He was also a very intelligent person. He knew what he was doing was bad.... but couldnt help it. He was looking forward to his execution. That little fact has been in everything I have read about him.
Belly.... Porn can contribute to a persons mental instability and their view on sex and their on the value of a woman. This has been documented time and time again. NO.... sitting down and watching porn does not make a person commit rape. Watching porn as a child and growing up with it has been a factor in a lot of serial killers and serial rapists lives. Not all of them though.
Report as
Also.... a man that will commit rape is a sick man. Not a normal person. Not every one is triggered by the same mechanisms.
Not all bullied students end up taking a gun to school to hurt others either... but some do.
Report as
If suppose a girl is gang raped by some 6 to 8 people. How will you say all the group is sick, not normal, suffering from mental illness, while this is not an individual act, it is a gang rape.
Report as
There is a psychological reason why groups of people will commit horrendous acts while singularly they would not. I've studied psychopathy, Bundy did not want to die. Psychopaths want to win at all costs. They lie, cheat, manipulate and mirror normal behavior.

it has long been recognized that rape has very little to do with sexuality and a very great deal to do with power & dominance. Rape has traditionally been used to punish and humiliate women individually and as a weapon of war to destroy families and whole communities.Changing the mind-set of men who have been raised to believe in their own innate superiority based solely on their gender will be a long term project. In the short term, women should bear in mind that many rapes are perpetrated by men known to their victims, and that drugs/alcohol are often involved.

Practically, Rape can be prevented by this way. Long time back, i read about this small 'instrument' which will be fitted somewhat near inside a woman's genitals. The instrument will have some 'locking system' which will 'trap' a pen!s when it goes into the women's genitals, using some needle like structures. Of course, there will be no pain for the woman, but the man will start to bleed eventually, though there won't be any risk to his life for that moment.
My answer doesn't mean that i advice women to do so.
Its a sane answer to the question.

Lets turn the tables. For years we've warned women to not dress or behave suggestively, not to go out alone or at night and to behave modestly. Maybe it's now time to blindfold men, not allow them to be out alone or in groups unless escorted by women and we could require them to wear mouth gags so they won't say immodest things. Sounds good to me.

GIrls can take self defence classes and take precautions whenever going out. Guys can... Well... Just not do it. Learn a little thing called self control and also patience. For those of you who say it's NOT a sex crime, I would just like to point out cases that are brought on because of the women saying no, but the guy not getting the tip. Also, those who use the likes of date rape drugs in order to do it to an unconscious victim. That doesn't show power in any sort of way, but it does allow a guy to get his sick pleasure in.

Are you kidding? Having sex with a woman that says no, isn't making them more powerful then the woman? Isn't that force? Or knocking them out with a rape drug to abuse and use the woman's body, isn't forcing themselves on a defenseless woman? It is ALL a out power. Rape is for ing a woman to surrender what belongs to her and her alone.
Report as
Darn phone about and forcing.
Report as
I'm just saying it isn't ALWAYS about power. Some guys just want it to the point where they will do anything to get it. As Michael Ghligleri (writer of the Dark Side of Man) said, "That whole power and control thing as an end in itself is a myth. Power and control is used as an instrument to accomplish a sexual event with an unwilling victim. And to leave out that sexual event is to completely forget what the crime was, which was a copulation was stolen from a woman against her will. To take the motive out of the actual definition is crazy. It essentially places women in a place where they no longer understand the motive of the rapist. It's an immense disservice to women."

Women should carry arms at all times if they fear their surroundings. We should all be able to protect ourselves as is our God given right (inalienable)
Then people need to understand that rape rarely has anything to do with a man being horny. It is a crime of power over the powerless. So just because a guy has sex on his mind all the time does not mean he will start raping women when he can't get any.
