Are you guys seriously arguing this shit? I'm not sure if it's because you're men or because it's Gravity.
Maybe she was just in the middle of a full-on heavy petting session with this guy and he accidentally breached the hemline of her skirt (and let's assume for argument's sake it was a respectable just above the knee number rather than something more akin to a belt) by mere centimetres; whereupon Gravity launched without warning (or polite request to stop, or the classic not-so-subtle repositioning of said hand) into the aforementioned punch/crotch kick combo. Maybe it was like this, or something else similarly innocent, but I'd be willing to bet that this wasn't how it went down.
Imagine for a second you're with a girl, you've been on a few dates, you're kissing, maybe there's even some outside the clothing butt-grabbing or the like. Suddenly her hand is right down the front of your trousers (or up right up under your kilt (or skirt, if you have my imagination)
) and you'd rather it wasn't (if you can't imagine why you wouldn't want this to happen for sexual reasons imagine you've recently suffered trauma in this parts and things are still tender.) You pull her hand out and tell her to stop it, but the moment you relax your grip it's right back in your trousers for another attempt at an impromptu juggling act. You yank the hand out push the girl away and leave. The next day you're telling your friends that girl you were dating is a crazy slut to be avoided.
Now imagine everything is reversed. You're a girl, you've been on a few dates with this guy, you're kissing, maybe there's some light-petting action, but that's all fine. Then his hand is right up your skirt (or down the front of your trousers) and this was not part of your plan. You take the hand away and, say no, but before long it's back were it shouldn't be.
You take it out again and then what? Maybe you could try just pushing him away and leaving, as in the above example, but it's likely one word is flashing like a neon sign in your brain right now, whether it's fair or not: Rape
. If you try to leave is he going to chase you? Maybe you wanted to look nice and for you that means breaking out the heels — ain't no chance you're outrunning him under those conditions. Or perhaps when you try to push him away he's going to turn round and smack you to the ground. It's true that there's no particular reason why those concerns couldn't apply in reverse, but it's not the default to assume (because it's far less common) that an overly frisky girl is going to do that to a guy should she not get her way.
You're looking at it from the first perspective, assuming that the guy did everything right an that Gravity is just crazy — hence why you must find the hole in her story that proves that. She's almost certainly looking at it from the second perspective and wondering if her actions narrowly avoided rape — having people question her every action is going to make those people look like gigantic uncaring arseholes.
And as if to nail the fucking point home:

This is sage advice.
Emphasis obviously mine, the irony is not.
