rape culture.

There is another culture to worry about, here. The culture of irresponsibility. Is violence acceptable in any circumstance? Absolutely not. That said, bad decisions often come with equally bad consequences. Let's use another example. A drunk driver crashes, severely injuring his/her passenger. The passenger is no doubt a victim, but if the passenger KNEW that the driver was too drunk to drive (and many times they do), then the passenger is also the victim of his/her own bad decisions. Some crimes can never be predicted or prevented. However, people - men and women - should understand that most crimes are crimes of opportunity. I will teach my daughters not to create the opportunity - that in every crowd exists angels and demons. Be aware of the former and beware the latter.
