Men, we hear you.

Several men have expressed concern that they might be falsely accused of rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, or sexual misconduct going forward due to the #MeToo movement. I thought I would share these helpful tips...
1. Stay alert and aware at all times. If you are at a party with a woman who you think will falsely accuse you of sexual assault, limit your alcohol consumption.

She is free to drink, but your impaired judgment is not an excuse for her false accusations.
2) If you walk or jog for exercise, try to vary your route and time on the street. To be predictable is risky. Always carry your cell phone to provide contemporaneous corroboration that you did not rape anyone. In fact, consider working out indoors. Some step aerobics, maybe.
3. Also, don’t play music in your headphones that you are unable to hear a potential false accuser approaching you. Don’t give women the opportunity to falsely accuse you by having an exercise routine.
4. Keep your body covered. If you expose certain areas of your body she may get the impression you are interested in sex with her. Don’t give her that impression by revealing more of your skin than necessary. Modesty is the best policy.
5. Think before you talk. Flirting with a woman is fine but be careful not to give her the impression you’re interested in sex. Chaste words will help you maintain your virtue and good name.
6. Don’t make yourself an easy target. Hold your head up, walk confidently, directly and at a steady pace away from the woman you think may falsely accuse you of sexual misconduct. Don’t forget, you’re a strong capable man too.
7. Attract attention to yourself if you feel like you might be falsely accused of sexual misconduct. Make noise, call 911 or a friend, use a whistle in hopes that someone will come to your aid as a witness. You can get “Falsely Accused of Rape” whistles at your local shelter.
8. If you are being followed, head for a well-lit area where you think there will be other people who may be able to help you. Well-lit areas could be the difference between a pleasant evening stroll or a night that will forever change your life.
9. It’s probably best to stay home after dark. If you’re worried that while you’re walking home or taking public transportation at night you might encounter a woman who may falsely accuse you of sexual assault, it’s best to avoid that situation completely.
10. If you do have to be out after dark, stay away from suspect women. Keep your guard up, be aware of your surroundings, make sure you aren’t being followed, and keep your distance. Remember to bring your “Falsely Accused of Rape” whistle and cellphone at all times.
11. Trust your “gut instincts.” If you get the feeling a woman is about to falsely accuse you of rape, leave her alone immediately.
12. Always make sure you lock your car doors, whether or not you are in the car. Always check the floor and rear seat for suspect women before getting into your car. (Are you starting to feel like this yet, guys?)
13. If you suspect that you are being followed by a woman while driving, keep on going—do not stop and pull over until you get to some place that is well-lit and where there are other people to assist you and attest to your innocence.
14. If your car breaks down, raise the hood and remain in the car with the doors locked until the cops arrive. Don't stand outside the car. This may give women the wrong impression. If a woman stops to assist you, roll down the window just enough to tell her you called the cops.
15. Don't open the door to strangers. If a repairwoman is legitimate, she will not mind your asking to see her identification and confirming their identity. If you still feel uncomfortable, schedule all appointments at a time when your wife can be home to help you.
16. For men who live by themselves in a house or apartment, never advertise the fact by listing your full name in the phone book or on a mailbox. This makes you an easy target for false accusations because you have no alibi.
17. Attend large parties with friends you can trust. Agree to “look out” for one another. Try to leave with your group, rather than alone or with a suspect woman.
18. Guys: be cautious about revealing any personal information over the telephone and/or Internet. Don’t make yourself a vulnerable target. Don't reply to DM's by women who tell you they want to rape you. That's just inviting more abuse. And it's your fault.
19. If you have roommates, talk to them about the importance of everyone following the safety strategies at all times.
20. If you are single and dating, always perform a comprehensive background check on every woman you date before the very first date. She might be a serial false rape accuser. Better to be safe than sorry.
21. Lastly, stay safe out there. There are plenty of good women ready to help you if you need it. Don’t let a few bad apples change the way you feel about all women. Most of us are good and trying to help you do the right thing. #NotAllWomen
22. Disclaimer: Following these tips and strategies does not guarantee that a false accusation will not occur. They are offered as strategies to reduce the likelihood of you becoming a victim of false rape accusations.
