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
Their style of dress often does play a role in why they are considered to be such in the first place.
Date rape, I assume, would probably be almost unheard in most cases, simply because unrelated men and women spending time alone together tends to be a taboo.
I'm not sure about violent rape, however.
In any case, I'm not suggesting that women should "dress like nuns." I'm simply suggesting that common sense would dictate that, when a woman dresses in a manner which tends to direct an untoward amount of sexual attention to her self, she often tends to invite men to make assumptions about her sexual intentions and proclivities.
While this might not be guaranteed to attract a potential rapist's attention, it certainly would seem to increase one's odds of landing "on the radar."
Exactly. There is also a huge difference between dressing attractively and dressing like a "slut."There is a huge difference between dressing conservatively and dressing like a nun.
Women can do what they want in this regard, but I still find it highly unlikely that the latter approach does not attract a level of attention that can sometimes be problematic.

Why is this so hard to grasp?
To the contrary, I love it when women dress provocatively.Just admit it Gathomas, YOU don't like that women dress provocatively.
That does not, however; mean that it is a good idea under all circumstances.
Who's angry?It's soooo stupid, because those guys are going to be angry no matter WHAT the woman is wearing.

I can't even fathom that someone would even try to pull some **** like that.
It's rare that anyone would be that stupid.
When I was a teen me and my brothers had huge parties with a lot of teen girls.
When I was that age. My parents were divorced and they both worked 3rd shift, me and my brothers would have a huge party with a lot of drinking, drugs and loud music every Friday and Saturday night when I was in high school. We were the football stars.
But by morning the house would be spic and span. A bunch of the more sober girls would get together and clean the entire house. Like 15 minutes before parents came home. There would be people passed out on the floor, and some cars parked in the front yard and on the street because some kids would get too drunk to drive home. But the inside of the house was super clean.
It always amazed my how a small group of teenaged girls can completely clean an entire house. Less than 15 minutes.
Lori was the leader of the bunch. She would bark out orders to the others. "jump!" "how high?"
Lori, Jodie, Shannon, Sil, Kristin and Tammy.
If you got in their way they would run you over.
You do not. You think that they're sluts and nothing more.To the contrary, I love it when women dress provocatively.
That does not, however; mean that it is a good idea.
The guy on the date in your scenario obviously.Who's angry?
Please Gathomas, there have been plenty of instances in which you speak derogatory about the way some women dress. Like on the clubbing thread a few months back for instance?Name a single instance.
I've known a few women who were raped, the majority of those I knew were never the same including trust issues, sometimes anger, almost always nightmares, and damage to their self confidence, other accounts from victims I did not know in just about everything I've ever read speak to similar trauma.This is all still entirely speculative. You've no way of predicting how trauma might be perceived and processed from one individual to another. What you or I might dismiss as being mildly disturbing could drive another to suicide.
It is done to demoralize the other faction, the men and the women of opposition forces/tribes/ethnic groups. Rape done in a militarized sense is indeed a power play.As for the warlord example, you make admission of situational and cultural biases. These being at odds with any universal application that the 'power' brigade seem intent upon claiming. After all the thread's deflective free-association, we're still left with the sexual component as being the one and only necessity for qualification. No agenda necessary.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
