    100% correct

    any guy mentally deranged and sick enough to rape a girl in a bikini is mentally deranged and sick enough to rape a girl in a parka

    clothes dont create a rapist, a broken mind does

    its completely mentally inept nonsense to think otheriwse

    Re: Rape and Clothing

    Well out of 75 votes only 5 voted that clothes play a role. This site is mostly male so I don't think it's just a handful of men who agree with the majority of women here.

    It simply happens to be the case that the risk in question can be managed and brought down to more acceptable levels if one takes other precautions.
    Wearing different clothing does not decrease your risk of being raped, as was shown to you in Aunt Spiker's links.

    If she had been dressed more conservatively, she probably wouldn't have been hanging out with those guys in the first place. They wouldn't have been interested.

    Agree, plenty of women go out scantily clad (maybe not like the woman in the picture a few posts ago, but you know what I mean - LOL), and they don't get raped. However, if they drink too much and go off with some strange guy in his car or something, THEN they are putting themselves at risk IMO.

    Perhaps, but the comments so far don't really reflect that.

    Again, I'm sorry, but I simply don't believe that.

    The claim is nonsensical.

    No, your claims are nonsensical. The bottom line is that you can wear any clothing you want as long as you behave responsibly when you are out and follow a few simple rules.

    It's when you do things like have to much to drink or go off with strange men that you get yourself into trouble and NOT because you wore a miniskirt.

    You don't know that. Plenty of girls/women have been dressed conservatively and ended up being raped. I'm willing to bet that she was dressed no more provocatively than most of the other girls at that party. I can't even find what exactly she was wearing. But I do have information that she was "talking to" one of those guys prior to the party. She started out as a target, no matter what she wore that night.

    If a guy is looking for sex, he tends to seek out a woman who seems like she is going to give it to him.

    Revealing clothing is taken as indication of this, and, in some cases, actually is.

    The boys in the Steubenville case were clearly hoping to get something out of the girl in question before the end of night, as evidenced by their decision to simply take it when she passed out. Do you really think they would have given that same level of interest to a frumpy girl who did not give the outward inclination of being willing to "put out?"
