    I'd say a chicks odds of running into a would be rapist is much higher at a college party than in a scary looking unlit parking lot or whatever.

    It is some rapists' MO, and it certainly play a role in many cases of date rape.

    That's all that matters.

    Do you think that prevents us from taking the necessary precautions to keep ourselves safe?

    An once of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

    I would agree, and I would also say that what she is wearing has little to do with it and what REALLY plays a role is . . . how drunk is she?

    Re: Rape and Clothing

    Why do people assume that everyone plays by the same rules? There are some nuts out there. Being aware of yourself and your surroundings is prudent.

    If you think that's a violation of your freedom, then you essentially shirk all legitimate responsibility.

    That cure is to be smart when you're out, don't drink too much, don't go off alone with people you do not know, and always stay with your group. It really has NOTHING to do with clothing Gathomas, and I think you know this. Women CAN wear revealing clothing and NOT be raped because rape is more a crime of opportunity than based on sexual attraction or what a person is wearing.

    I'm not sure, I don't know if those statistics have been compiled.

    Eh...let's break it down...IMO, it would be...

    90% how drunk she is (oportunity)
    5% physical appearance (the ugly chick could be in a skirt passed out with no panties and might be fine)
    5% attire (which plays into appearance, really)

    Sometimes rape is about power.
