END RAPE CULTURE SAFETY TIPS:
SOCIAL MEDIA: 1) Accepting friend requests from people we dont know often happens, try avoid this unless it is a group or cause. If you dont know a personal individual and they have odd activity on their account. DO NOT ACCEPT. ( I get at least 5 random requests a day on my personal profile, most of them only have girls on their friends list, I never accept unless I know them ) ...
2) DO NOT meet up with a stranger who randomly befriended you on social media, if you do, like all first time social media meetings ALWAYS - tell several friends where you are going, the time, try brining someone with you, send a photo of the guy with his contact details & I dont care how drastic this sounds. Men can do the same process, Rape and murders from online meetings are no joking matter.
ALWAYS WALK WITH A CROWD If its late and your with a friend or alone, find a group of people and walk closer to them. Walk where there are lights and avoid alleys and lane ways. BE VERY MINDFUL OF YOUR DRINK When you are at a public place. Keep it with you at all times.
REPORT HARASSMENT We all know the legal system is failing but if you strongly feel somebodies actions towards you or someones else in any way mimics the actions of one of these maniacs then please report to the authorities. KNOWING THE PERSON. If you have said NO or STOP, whether you know the person or not, if its forceful, its still rape.
BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS If someone or something doesn't add up or you feel uncomfortable and think you cant get out of the building, house or car etc safely. Find a way to call 000 or text a family or friend immediately. ALL HELP LINES WILL BE ON MY WEBSITE .. COMING SOON... Website Material
