If you don't look out for yourself and take proper precautions to avoid dangerous situations, are you partially responsible if something bad happens to you?

Yes & no. If you knowingly put yourself in a bad situation, then yes you share some responsibility & need to learn from your actions & not do that again. That said, sometimes you can innocently or naively find yourself in a dangerous situation &

Yes and no. Sometimes despite all your excellent planning, preparedness, and awareness, you can still be taken by surprise and not be able to react.

Because I'm pretty sure this all trends back to IMO's rape question. The man is fully and completely guilty for his actions. The woman is irresponsible and not blameless, but not legally guilty

It stemmed from that, but I was thinking of multiple situations.

There he is. I didn't you posting much tonight. Because of this, I will call nickname you "Lawman Laney." Sound good?

If I was to walk around San Francisco after dark wearing assless chaps, I'm pretty sure I'd get raped...

Leaving a wallet on your car seat and leaving the window down is an example of someone doing something idiotic and getting what they deserved. That person is responsible for getting their wallet stolen.

Precautions or not there are bad people in this world who pray on others. Some who take precautions are harmed while some who take no precautions are never harmed. You can't always take steps for safety. We do our best and that's all we can do.

Perfect example. GySgt Hartman finding a jelly donut in Pvt Pyle's unsecured footlocker.

He didn't take it did he? If so, I'd shame him for being unprofessional. Actually I'd do that to both for their actions. Neither stealing nor hiding food in your locker are particularly advisable.

Hmm... That was a reference to "Full Metal Jacket", you must be too young to have seen it.
