I don't believe in the right to assault females sexually on random, but neither do I believe that the girls should extrovertly flaunt themselves by underdressing.
Too many studies show that the dress of the victim had absolutely nothing to do with a rape. Rape is a power trip for rapists. Ya'll are way out in left field on this topic. It is implicit misogyny. Judges get disbarred for using this sort of thinking in their rulings. Fundamentalists use this line of thought to blame women for making their thoughts impure.

And seriously, Kafriel, as long as you keep using the phrase "at fault" and "responsible for" the way you have -- you're going to be tagged as misogynist no matter what your protestations. I'm not trying to yell at you, just trying to explain why people are reacting to your word choice.

Well I wasted 2 pages to explain it, can't bother anymore. Tag me whatever you want, as long as I know what I believe it's enough for me, no need to go out of my way and fill this thread with more off-topicness...it got enough of it as it is.

Wow... Personally, I find it impossibly insulting to think that girls/women should "dress modestly to avoid rape." That's like saying that all men in general should be treated as potential rapists, since all they need is a visual prompt is send them over the edge. As a guy, I find that incredibly insulting to me.

Like Vexx mentioned, rape usually doesn't have anything to do with how the person is dressed, and doesn't even have to do with how the person looks. Most often it just needs to be someone who is in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Agreed -- let's give this thread a little rest. We can "reawaken" it when the time is right.
