Good link, dhoyt. While I'm pessimistic in a "preaching to the choir" kind of vein, I'll applaud any action that men decide to take to do what they can to prevent rape and abuse. I've found personally that one of the mose important things is just to talk to your friends and help them realize that it is an important and pertinent facet of life.

I've had at least three friends that will own up to being assualted sexually. Taking the taboo of talking about it away is the first and most important step towards prevention.

And these guys get bonus points for having a bit of a sense of humor on a very un-funny subject.

Lots more info can be found at RAINN
