There are a couple of interesting things in this article - the nail polish that changes color when it comes into contact with date rape drugs and the turning around of things that are told to women to prevent rape. I have really mixed feelings about the nail polish because it does reinforce the idea that it is women's responsibility to not be rape as opposed to men's responsibility to not rape, but it could be a legitimate tool to stop someone from having to go through a terrible experience (if it works) while we're still working on eliminating rape culture. It becomes a balancing act between being sensible and encouraging complacency with rape culture.
