NAD - Men of Strength Campaign

This isn't a debate, I just thought it was really great and touching, and wanted to share it with you. FINALLY someone is running ads about rape prevention that target men. Don't get me wrong, I don't really disagree with the the PSA's that run that remind women to watch their drinks, travel in groups, et cetera, because unfortunately there is still a need for that advice. But it's awesome to finally see PSAs that target the real issue - "Don't rape."

The one that made me tear up was "So when she was too drunk to decide, I decided we shouldn't." That actually happened to DH and I at the very very very beginning of our relationship. We were at a party, I was tipsy and wanted to make out, and he said no because he didn't want to take advantage of me. (I know, I know, but give me a break, I was 22!) It's such a simple and decent decision, but unfortunately it doesn't get made often enough.

Anyway I just thought this was a really cool campaign and I'm going to share it with DH and see if he thinks they can do something with it at his school.

Here is a link to all of the posters they have right now:

One of my great-nephews who is a senior in high school this year had posted some quotes from this on his Facebook page. I thought it was great.

As a mother who's daughter's rapist was just convicted right before Christmas, seeing this made my day. This should be heavily advertised at all schools. Thank you for posting this!

Love it! TFS! I'll be sure to pass it along as well.

Tracey - I'm very sorry to hear that your dd was a victim of rape. I am glad that she was able to get a conviction. I'll be keeping her and your family in my thoughts and prayers. (((HUGS)))
