Women, if you want protection...

rely on police, on government, on education and on basic human decency. No. TME. cover yourselves!

I can't even muster up the appropriate amount of rage here. This is from an Egyptian campaign trying to prevent rape by asking women to wear headscarves.

I want to give them the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps there are actually statistics collected here. That women not wearing headscarves are raped more often. That just in case this might be a causative relationship, they're advocating this as a recommendation.

But I don't think that kind of thinking would've lead to this image. The hideous implications that men are like flies, and that as a potential victim, you should cover up or you're as good as inviting violence.

I think I'm going to be sick.

You should change the text to:

"حماية صحة لك وللمحب. الواقي الذكري منع الأمراض التي تنتقل عن طريق الاتصال الجنسي."

(Google translate might have gotten that wrong, but you get the idea."
