Angono police draw flak over ‘how to prevent rape’ FB post

/ 12:34 PM July 18, 2018

The Angono Municipal Police in Rizal might have the good intentions when it issued tips on ways to prevent rape, but netizens called out certain suggestions that seemed to express archaic ideas.

On Tuesday, the Angono Police listed 10 ways for women to avoid rape. Among the tips were: “not wearing short clothes” and “not drinking when on a date.”

In the comment section below the Facebook post, people wrote their disgust and even questioned the competency of those who came up with the guidelines to prevent rape.

“Why don’t you try to educate the boys na hindi sila entitled na bastusin ang babae?” asked Facebook user Angel Ann.

“How to prevent rape: DON’T RAPE lol #stopvictimblaming,” wrote another user named Lorraine Jose.

Joanne Saldana Quintos, meanwhile, suspected it was male cops who created the post.

“Maybe those who created this are all males. Therefore, they all think alike,” she said.

The Angono Rizal Police, however, maintained the post is part of a “massive information drive and campaign to protect women.”
