If someone is going to get a bullet in the head, it makes sense, from a personal standpoint, to do whatever you can to avoid that head being yours.

    That was a bad interpretation. Rape is rape. Nobody would advocate making a rape victim an accessory to the crime of her own rape. That's ludicrous. It's a huge stretch to misinterpret the discussion that far off base.

    Re: Rape and Clothing

    Haven't read the whole thread, just first and last page... but let me take a WILD ASS GUESS...


    Someone, probably male, dared to imply that there were things a woman might avoid doing that might reduce her chances of being raped.


    This person was then dogpiled and told they were excusing rape, apologizing for the rapist, attempting to disempower women, etc etc.


    Good guess?

    It's not a bad interpretation at all. Because miscommunication happens all the time. On here, in the "outside" world. They are two discussions that have to be clearly defined because people misinterpret the meaning of the message quite frequently. I'm not limiting my commentary to the confines of this singular thread. You seem to be.

    I don't think it's gotten that bad yet.

    I think you nailed it. You don't even have to read the other post. You can spend your extra time reading other threads about Obamacare or the potential 2016 candidates for president.

    I don't think it makes any difference what someone's wearing...for the most part. I think there are exceptions. I also think women are inviting dangerous attention when they are wearing ****-me clothes.

    I get what you're saying but the very thing you are saying was said about yoga pants. Yoga pants aren't exactly easy access but I guess since the accentuate body parts, they can also be a rape magnet. A rapist really has no problem removing pants and he most likely probably gets off on stripping and humiliating his victim anyway. So skirts and dresses shouldn't be worn b/c it's easy access? Just asking.

    I hope you're just trolling with this comment because, if you really believe this, you...well...suck as a person.
