5 tips to keep lechers at bay

THE commentary, “Women, shed your complacency” (my paper, May 12) is a reminder for girls to exercise prudence and vigilance so that they will not be easy targets for molesters and rapists.
Here are more tips for girls to keep lechers at bay:

1) Dress modestly without revealing too much flesh.

2) Ask someone to escort you through secluded areas.

3) Do not take a lift if you sense potential danger, especially when the surroundings are not crowded.

4) Do not talk to strangers.

5) Learn martial arts to defend yourself against unsavoury characters. -Mr Nelson Quah

Haha I remember once when I returned home late, was rushing to the lift. This girl waiting at the lift lobby, heard my fast footsteps and was alarmed, but was immediately relieved to see I'm also female and obviously was no lecher.

Prudence and vigilance are good. As you can see on the street, today's women are different, they are more outgoing, daring to dress and friendly too.. who will follow the tips to keep lechers at bay especially when tipsy, martial arts also unable to put in use.. When things happen, then start blaming..

dont smile, dont be friendly, have a sunken more propaganda, read more propaganda magazines. this is so typical singaporean women, and thanks to the media and gahment for teaching you women to behave like that,

But luckily, we have pretty friendly smiley women from neighbouring countries like thai, viet, china, pinoy, burmese, indonesia coming over to our shores to solve our men's marriage problems, or getting us happily married to these foreign wives.
