Is it telling a woman not to walk alone at night sexist?


I've read today that a university advised their female students not to walk alone at night after 3 sexual assaults. This was considered sexist. Are we living in a society so worried about "political correctness" that we can't advice women how to be safe, because, if we do, we are being sexist?

    Agreed. As a non-feminist on most issues except career and economic matters, I must say that sometimes the feminist take on things is downright silly. They should save their foot-stomping and smoke oozing from ears and nose for the right issues.

    Criminals/rapists could care less about laws or "no means no". I get where you're coming from both genders could become victims however I suspect they're trying to address an immediate concern by offering this advice. Using commonsense is smart.
