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
This is kind of silly. I don't see where anyone is "encouraging" people to be promiscuous nowadays. The "sexual revolution" of the 60s? Well I think that revolution is dead. We try to instill safe sexual habits in our young people, such as NOT sleeping around but IF they do, then practice safe sex.Today's culture, on the other hand, is especially dangerous in this regard, as young people are encouraged to dress provocatively and go out and seek sex with random strangers. Most often, they do so under the influence of alcohol or other perception altering substances as well.
That's just a bad combination all the way around, and trying to temper that message of "sexual liberation" with talk of "moderation" and "responsibility" often strikes young and hormonal minds as simply being "mixed messages." This leads to a lot of young and foolish women getting themselves into trouble with the wrong kinds of men.
No including how she was dressed or behaved is irrelevant. The implication is that they are somehow indicative of the level of responsibility. They aren't.So giving an accurate account of what was witnessed, including accurate descriptions of dress, have no place in a trial? Everything that tells the jury about the scene and actions of the people involved is not only not irrelevant, it is essential to the jury's ability to make an accurate judgment.
They are not arguing about how the juror may perceive the description they are arguing about the legitimacy of including it in deliberations. It is not a factor and should not be considered when evaluating a case.It is kind of funny, people are arguing about how the juror may perceive the description of how someone is dressed, but in doing so, they are making an unfounded assumption about the jurors with even less foundation for judgment.
All women who dress provocatively are sluts asking for it. All men and other women think that women who dress provocatively are sluts asking for it. Neither is accurate or correct, but you want to limit what the jury sees based upon the second statement?
How the woman is dressed or how she acted should is irrelevant and should not be considered when determining his guilt.Or do you simply want more men convicted of rape when charged, regardless of guilt or innocence?

So you wouldn't take any of the responsibility for letting him spend the night?=Gathomas88;1062940010]He is, of course, and I absolutely would tell someone.
It strikes me as being somewhat unlikely that there would be no warning signs ahead of time though.
Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
I'm also not suggesting that we do go back to the 1950s. I'm suggesting that people behave responsibly and not encourage behavior or attitudes which will simply lead to trouble.
You're kidding, right?This is kind of silly. I don't see where anyone is "encouraging" people to be promiscuous nowadays.
A lot of people coming up these days basically think this is how they are expected to act (keep in mind that this is the "PG" trailer as well, the actual movie is about 1000X worse).
Ever seen one of MTV's Spring Break specials?
Trying to interject with something like, "oh, hey, and remember to be safe" in the middle of that simply comes off as being laughably stupid to most young people.
I'm sorry, but this is simply out of touch with basic reality.The "sexual revolution" of the 60s? Well I think that revolution is dead. We try to instill safe sexual habits in our young people, such as NOT sleeping around but IF they do, then practice safe sex.
