Comedian Sarah Silverman has retweeted “10 Rape Prevention Tips” for men, saying, “These are great – send to all the men in ur life.” In response, angry men have tweeted that Silverman is “sexist” and “offensive,” claiming her tweet implies that all men are rapists.
Silverman’s list features tips like, “When you encounter a woman asleep, the best course of action is not to rape her,” and, “Carry a rape whistle. If you find you are about to rape someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.” Others on twitter defended Silverman’s post, saying the list is “brilliant” because it parodies the usual rape tips by focusing on the offender instead of the victim.
