How to safely do shit as a woman
I am so bugged by those anti-rape posts. Because I agree with them, but then there’s this little fallacy that fucking gets me every fucking time.
Listen. Please. I don’t victim blame. It’s dumb to blame people for shit that happened to them. But you know. People still need to be safe about life. It’s not a free for all.
I have a friend who seems to believe that she has a right to go to a club, and just leaver her drink whenever to go to the bathroom. Okay, yes, technically she does. Technically she can. But, that doesn’t mean that someone won’t see that drink and put something in it. It’s a club for goodness sakes. You think the bartenders are watching every drink left unattended on their bar? fuck no. They have a fucking job.
That drink is the responsibility of the person who is drinking it; Therefore, you shouldn’t do stupid shit like leaving it alone. If you do, ask for a new one. Also, watch your drinks being made. And don’t take drinks from strangers. Sure, a guy is probably trying to chat you up, but seriously, if he just sets a cup down in front of you. DON’T DRINK IT.
Secondly. Don’t get so blind drunk that you don’t know who you’re going home with. I’ve heard stories through all my teen years about women getting drunk or drugged and the Criminals just say she’s with them and people just don’t ask questions. DON’T DO THAT. Know your limit. If you have to get drunk do it at home. Don’t put yourself into a position where CRIMINALS can take advantage of you. They are looking for the weakest in the herd, and sorry, but the drunk person is totes the weakest of the herd.
Thirdly, don’t go home with strangers. You don’t know who has a murder basement.
So. There are my tips for a night out. Be careful, don’t do dumb shit. YOAu can prevent it - well as much as anyone can prevent these sorts of things.
