And no one is saying you can't acknowledge that. But it has been done to death. It is not a defense for the rapist. People for whom their first reaction to hearing a rape accusation is, "well, she shouldn't have been drinking that much/in that situation/wearing that" are a part of the problem. When they feel like they have to say that every time there is a discussion about rape, when everyone already knows, they are a bigger part of the problem. Of course you shouldn't go to a black neighborhood and pick a fight, but when you do and the police come afterwards, they are going to believe you and investigate the crime. Many times women don't even get that.

That's why we tell people to exercise and watch their diet like, all the time in every form of media there is. Why can't we handle this with even a modicum of the same respect? Teach people that sex is only to be had with positive consent from both parties, under no influence from drugs.

You are posting this idea on pretty much every thread but it makes no sense. It requires that someone be paranoid enough that they know about this nail polish and would want someone to test their drink, but lazy enough to not actually get it themselves and paradoxically trusting enough that they would accept that person's word about the veracity of their test. And, of course there will be drugs that it cannot detect. This is just a proof of concept. That does not make the whole idea worthless.

The other line moves faster.
