NCSU REPRESENT ❤️🐺 So proud of them

I obviously understand the thought behind this and appreciate the attempt to make party situations safer for women. However, I have to remind everyone that we wouldn’t need to force victims to go to these measures if we could stop the perpetrators. Why should a girl have to wear nail polish, maybe not even the color she wanted to wear originally, to not get raped? Why should she have to check her drink to not get raped? Why are we subtly making it look as though rape is the victims fault for not preventing it probably? When are we going to start blaming the rapists and holding them accountable for their actions? And also, not to be missed, do we expect men to wear nail polish they may not want to wear to avoid rape as well? Because rape isn’t just against one gender…But don’t get me wrong, this does sound cool and I appreciate a group of young men dedicating time and research towards protecting young women at college parties.
