Is Felicia Chew a Rape Apologist?

My name is Felicia Chew.

I have been called a rape apologist. What is a rape apologist?  Here are the #1 definitions from the Urban Dictionary, with my comments in red (and italics):

1

1. A person who defends acts of rape, usually by claiming that rape is not a serious crime or that people do not need to give consent to sex.

According to this definition, I am not a rape apologist.  I believe rape is a serious crime, and I believe that people need to give consent to sex.
2. (informal) Any person who suggests that women may be able to take precautions to reduce their chances of being raped, such as carrying a concealed weapon for self defense or avoiding places where crime is likely while alone at night.
According to this definition, I am a rape apologist. I believe that a person may be able to take precautions to reduce their chances of becoming a victim of crime.  
I also believe that:
  • Predators must be held accountable.for their actions, and be taught empathy;
  • Community members must take precautions and have safety plans, knowing that there are predators in the community;
  • Policies and practices must be updated, and funding must be provided in order to provide appropriate education and treatment that support the practices of individual and community responsibility.
