Correct rape analogies

Shakespeare's Sister [some words possibly NSFW] is fed up with comparisons between getting mugged for your money and getting raped: "Honestly, I can't even begin to tell you how much you don't get it if you can construe a woman walking alone and inebriated with a man walking alone with valuables hanging out of his pocket." The point being that both should be more careful.

"If you want an honest comparison, here's one: And also in an abstract moral sense, I should be able to walk around those same places in the middle of the night and not expect to have someone incapacitate me and cut my dick off. The reason that doesn't leap to your mind is because men's bodies aren't considered community property for the taking as soon as they get drunk, like women's bodies. Or visible $50 bills."

Scroll way down in the comments for some interesting additional thoughts from ACS.
