Sometimes I wish I could so something about rape in the third world. In my experience, rape over there isn't even reported. Authorities don't really care, since well, they're men and hardly saints.
I love the positive spin on this line of adverts. Not a control-yourselves-and-keep-it-in-your-pants-you-pigs theme, but the acknowledgement of strength and the allusion to it having a better use or purpose. I also firmly believe that change has to come from within any given group, it can't really be forced on them from another group, so the use of the first person, the guy looking into the camera, the man-speaking-to-men mode, strikes me as potentially far more effective than any other approach. I don;t know why there's not more of this stuff plastered up where posters go.
Words of wisdom from my readers here. Yes.
