Police rape poster - I like some feminists, but......

I saw a similar article to this in my paper today. Now, I don't dislike feminists per se (just the loud ones with too many piercings, tattoos, #1 crops and very un-sexy lumberjack shirts....oh, and the very shrill ones, whatever they look like). But I have to say, I cannot see the problem with this poster. Can anyone else?

i understand both the poster and why they don't like it
if my daughters friends left her too drunk too stand and that happened i would be as angry with them as with him
the poster is putting the onus on young women and giving the message that they ask for it, that is why it is wrong

I can see both sides here but it does not address aggressive young males who are apparently the main problem.

Yeah, I def understand the "not addressing young males" things and agree with that sentiment.......but there's also the common sense thing of advising young girls how to protect themselves & generally be sensible.

There's possibly a parallel to (safe) driving here i.e. it's the tailgating, tyre screaming, undertaking brigade that messages should be aimed at.......but personally I can't see them being very receptive to such advice, so I'll take the "defensive riding" message on board myself; that's maybe the most practical way of staying on this mortal coil?

apply some common sense to this, most offenders are known to their attackers prior to it happening
so why do these males think their attitude and behaviour is ok ?
are they set good standards by their immediate peers ? as well as by those they socialise with ?
and when caught why do they usually try to put the onus on the victim ? thye didn't say no, it wasn't clear they said no etc
castrate them I say
