although not ALL men are rapists and pedophiles, in the interest of safety (even at burning man), it's safest to assume that they are (as they ALL have this potential).
also, it's safest to assume that when a man at burning man offers a woman a drink, that drink is laced with GHB. and ladies, if the drink you prepared yourself does not have child-proof lid, assume the men around are each carrying a supply of GHB and are waiting for you to turn your head of leave the drink unattended, so they can drug you; drag you into the darkness and rape you.
but let's assume, ladies, that you somehow survive burning man without being drugged & raped in the traditional sense. if that guy you meet and choose to have consensual sex with is not 100% honest about his feelings towards you and his future intentions - that's rape also. so if he doesn't come by your camp later in the week like he promised, immediately contact a law enforcement officer so they can begin the manhunt. in fact, consider bringing in your entire camp and even neighboring camps in on the hunt. you'll find most burner men willing to hunt down their own on the word of any damsel with a sniffly nose.
also, if you have a little too much to drink out there and become intoxicated, any sex fails to be consensual sex - thus, rape. as a further safety tip: alcohol absolves you from responsibility of your actions (sorry, guys! ladies only).
try not to think of the fact that the men you accuse of rape will probably go to jail for 25 years and be repeatedly sodomized and perhaps killed. after all - they're just men. the important thing is the civil case you'll be filing - you get to take all their assets. don't get even, ladies - get everything!
have fun at burning man!
I'm seeing (hoping) a tongue planted firmly in a cheek.
