I suspect women are wearing revealing clothes in most rape cases
I suspect that a man/woman will rape regardless of the victims clothing
I think some women are inviting dangerous attention when wearing revealing attire
I don't think clothes have anything to do with rape
"A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water." - Eleanor Roosevelt
Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
It's true that people can make choices that will make them less likely to wind up a victim. But being extremely careful about who you spend time with alone is much more important than whether or not your pants are tight.
A working class hero is something to be
Like I said, clothing might only be a contributing factor, but it is still a factor in some cases.
I still say it has very little to do with clothing, if at all for most rapists, and more to do with opportunity.
The major problem with overly suggestive clothing is simply that it draws a great deal of attention to one's self. Sometimes, that attention can be dangerous.
Again, however; as has already been pointed out, that level of danger can be pretty easily negated in a lot of cases by taking simple, common sense precautions.
Usually, when women are stalked and raped, it has very little if anything at all to do with their clothing because that is usually someone they know or are acquainted with.
I can't find the link, and have no interest in debating this. reject it if you wish.
What about this? Does this include things such as "what was she wearing?" Perhaps under "opinion evidence?"
Rape shield law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the United States of America
In the late 1970s and early 1980s, almost all jurisdictions in the United States adopted some form of rape shield statute. The laws in each state differ according to the scope of sexual behavior shielded and time limits of the shield. Many states do not permit any evidence relating to the past sexual behavior of the victim. This encompasses evidence of specific instances of the victim's prior or subsequent sexual conduct including opinion evidence or reputation evidence.
