believe it or not, showing signs early on that you’ll fight back against a rape can help prevent it from happening. many rapists “test the water” early on to see if you’re someone who will fight back or not. if you show you don’t put up with any harassment, you might not get to the point where you have to fight back against the rapist!
(I want to add that I’m not implying that girls who are raped are wimps or should have done something to prevent it themselves. I’m just saying this as a helpful tip for interacting with potential rapists, because many women are taught to act at least a bit submissive around males.)
