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 lot guys believe it anyway regardless though. lol
Okay, but one of the reasons why that "opportunity" presented itself in his mind in the first place was her style of dress. That's the whole problem.I can agree with this, but again it has little to nothing to do with how a woman is dressed and more about the opportunity that has presented itself in his sick mind.
As such, if you're going to willingly enter the kinds of establishments those men frequent, and dress in such a way as to draw their attention, it is generally advisable to take precautions to make sure they don't get the wrong idea, or you can fight them off if need be.
Some do and some don't. Not all rapes, or rapists, are the same.IOW, I don't think rapists CARE that much about the appearance of their victim as long as they are not grotesque. They just want to get laid, and so they rape an easy target. That is how I see it.
Sometimes rape is a serial obsession and sometimes it is more of a crime of passion. Clothing wouldn't play a role in the former, but can sometimes play a role in the latter.
Which is why I'm pointing out that there are some rape scenarios where clothing can play a contributing role.No specific rape scenarios are described in the OP, so I can talk about that too.

I still see nothing wrong with arming yourself especially if you travel alone and are single!

When men see a woman dressed in a very sexy, let alone "slutty", manner, many they tend to think she is advertising some degree of willingness.
With most men who think this, a firm "no" is sufficient. However, there are a few men for whom "no" is simply a trigger that sets off the worst in them.
