My college recently gave a presentation on rape and related topics to incoming freshman. The goal obviously was to reduce incidents of sexual assault on campus. I felt that the way it was presented encouraged a victim mentality for the woman ("bad men are targeting me as prey") and I almost felt like the message to the men was almost "guys, don't do that." Needless to say I was not pleased with this presentation. If I was in charge there were there are two things that I would like people to come away with; danger exists, and there is something I can do about it. I felt that the presentation (which relied to some extent on what you could call scare tactics) probably achieved the first goal. However, it failed in the second and because of the time spent discussing how some serial rapists operate (they use words such as prey, target etc.) it probably detrimental. Assuming that you agree that my premise is sound, how would you go about giving this presentation? For now I would like to limit what we can do to the students staying in there seats. Not something where we have a guy some out in one of those giant red suits and the girls beat on him.
