What's wrong with you, Penis?

Secretary of Security Lai Tung-kwok appeared at a Fight Crime Committee meeting Tuesday to discuss the soaring rape statistics in Hong Kong, according to Hong Kong's The Standard. Instead of pointing the finger at culprits of sexual assault, Lai suggested women's drinking habits might be to blame.
Seriously if I were a guy, I would've been very offended, even more so than the women. What Lai really meant was that - dude, you have no self control over your penis because you are a weak and underdeveloped prehistoric creature that hasn't evolved. And to put up with men's inability to control their almighty penis, sorry girls, you need to take charge.
Lai's remarks were along the same logic as India's culture of rape, which blames women for getting themselves rape, rather than the men. The horrid Delhi gang-rape of a 23-year-old med student that shocked the world was hoped to change this culture, but seems that little has changed.
Honestly what can a woman do when she is in a vulnerable status? Even without the influence of alcohol, or other chemical substance, the best a woman can do is to scream out loud and cross her legs to protect her vagina from being invaded. How is it possible to ask a woman to physically fend off a man forcing himself on her?
So shouldn't men be taking the responsibility to exert self control over their penises and not let it run in the wild? But the undertone of Lai's remarks implies that men simply don't have such power. Men are ruled by their penises.
I don't have a penis. And I wonder what it is like to have a penis. How can a man - sometimes even the most well-educated and sophisticated one - be taken over by his penis and give what penis wants any time any where? What's wrong with you, Penis? If there's such a thing as chastity belt for women, then all men should tie a leash around their penis so it won't be roaming around in the wild like a stray dog.
