    Again, not all rapes start with the man having the deliberate intention to rape his victim. The lines occasionally blur after the fact, which might result in the rape being more of a crime of passion.

    In any case, the reality that suggestive clothing often plays a role in how men profile women isn't up for debate. It is a self-evident fact.

    Do you really think that the kind of men who would be inclined to rape women are going to ignore this?

    Why are you so derogatory towards women anyway? Calling them "slutty" and other such names. Those women are PEOPLE you know!
    Do we really have to do this again, Chris?

    All the more reason for women to take care not to be the victim a potential rapist eventually "goes off" on.

    I would say that it would happen anyways. If she's wearing revealing clothing, maybe he would be more "turned on" but if he was planning on raping this person, then he's going to do it regardless of what she's wearing.

    Do you actually think a rapist is going to say, "oh, well that woman's clothing is not as revealing as that other woman's clothing over there, so she's my victim." I REALLY don't think that's how they target victims. In fact, I'm thinking they might even tend to avoid a person who has the self confidence enough to wear certain clothing because they don't want a victim who has a lot of self-confidence and who would potentially give a good fight. I think a lot of times a rapist, if targeting a victim, would tend to go for a more demurely dressed mousy-type of woman.

    Unless you can PROVE your claims, then they don't mean anything. Like I've said, I've NEVER heard of a rapist who targeted "women in slutty clothes."

    Yes we do. Every time you call a woman a "slut" because of how she is dressed, I am going to call you out.
