    Not all women - just women who go to bars.

    Are you saying that women who go to bars don't deserve respect?

    And men need to realize that just because you buy a drink for a woman, doesn't mean she wants to sleep with you. If you can't handle that, only buy drinks for women you know beforehand will sleep with you.

    Well, men who are desperate really don't have much of a choice but to beg and plead and then rape I guess, perhaps sometimes they use alcohol and drugs because they can't get any women otherwise.

    Or it has to do with the fact that most men are sheep.

    It doesn't work that way though. Plenty of guys out there who are going to try for the women they are attracted to, which isn't always going to be the one dressed the sluttiest, even for most guys.

    Or it's the difference between a man and a complete and utter loser.

    Re: Rape and Clothing

    I found this very interesting study done about college students and what factors they might consider in order to assign "blame" to one party or the other in a rape. This study is from 2007.

    Here is the conclusion (link below):


    The study investigated the hypothesis that college students would view a woman
    who dressed provocatively as more responsible for a sexual assault than a woman who
    was dressed conservatively; however, it was not supported by the data. This finding was
    not consistent with previous literature, because there was not a significant main effect for
    “attire” in terms of her responsibility. In order for this hypothesis to be supported by the
    data, the college student’s would have needed to agree that a provocatively dressed woman
    is more responsible for a sexual assault than a conservatively dressed woman.

    For example, in previous research, Kanekar and Kolsawalla (1981) found that
    provocative or seductive appearing victims were assigned more responsibility for rape,
    than were non-provocative appearing victims. Previous literature also states that some
    participants feel that the victim’s dress is under her control and is a reflection of internal
    trait and that dressing in a very provocative was is reflective of promiscuousness and is
    one type of sexual invitation (Lewis & Johnson, 1989), however these hypotheses were
    not supported in the present study.

    The second hypothesis, that college students would view a woman who drank
    alcohol as more responsible for a sexual assault than a woman who had not drank, was
    not supported by the data. This finding was not consistent with previous literature,
    because there was not a significant main effect for alcohol consumption in terms of her
    responsibility. In order for the hypothesis to be supported the participants would have
    needed to agree that a woman who had drank alcohol, is viewed as more responsible for a
    sexual assault than a woman who had not drank alcohol, as found in previous literature.
    Richardson and Campbell (1982) found that both male and female college students
    viewed the victim of rape as more responsible than the perpetrator when she was drunk.

    Another study that was not supported by the present study was that women who drink are
    viewed as more responsible for an assault than a woman who does not drink (Blume,
    1991).

    The third hypothesis, that predicted a significant interaction in that a woman is
    viewed as much more responsible for an assault if she was dressed provocatively and
    drinking rather than if she was dressed conservatively and drinking, is also inconsistent
    with previous studies, there was no significant main effect for college students’ views
    about the woman’s responsibility, when she was viewed as dressed “provocatively” and
    drinking.
    For example, previous studies found that more blame is placed on the victim if
    she was seen as dressed provocatively, as opposed to conservatively (Abbey, Cozzarelli,
    McLaughlin & Harnish, 1987). Furthermore, even though previous literature shows that
    the woman is viewed as more responsible for an assault when she had been drinking than
    a woman who had not been drinking (Blume, 1991; Campbell, 1992), these college
    students seemed to disagree.
