Sarah Silverman’s how not to rape list

28 Mar

I like Sarah Silverman. I’ll eventually do a post about just awesome I think she is because she’s a genuinely brilliant, intelligent and interesting person. I don’t have time to tell you all the other reason’s I think she’s awesome, so I’ll just share with you this image she put up on twitter:

Sarah Silverman's anit rape list

Sarah Silverman’s anit rape list

In case you can’t read it, this is what it says:

  1. Don’t put drugs in women’s drinks.
  2. When you see a woman walking by herself, leave her along.
  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, as 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.

While I’ve pointed out that I do believe women have a responsibility to protect themselves and avoid dangerous situations, this list is a pretty hilarious indictment of the revolting way some men behave. This list definitely belongs on our sister site, How Not To Be A Massive douche.

Nice work, Ms Silverman!
