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
In any case, however; yes. Claiming that a person's clothing never plays a roll in how they are perceived by those around them, or in contributing to sexual profiling which can sometimes be dangerous, would strike me as being rather fundamentally out of touch with reality to say the least.
Human nature simply isn't especially hard to puzzle out in this regard.
B) If they're being honest about it, MOST human beings do judge other people based around their clothing choices. They do so with good reason, as a person's clothing is often deliberately selected to send certain messages to the outside world in the first place.
This man, for instance, did not fall into the style of dress you see below by accident.
He is using his attire as a means of making a deliberate socio-political statement.
Unless he's a paid actor or a deliberate troll, I kind of doubt it. Frankly, why would I waste a single second of my time even stopping to consider such things where some random stranger on the street was concerned anyway?Maybe he just likes tied-dye clothing.
Why suffer fools where it can be avoided? If a person chooses to (almost literally) wear a giant sign around their necks outing themselves as a moron to everyone within a four block radius, I'm going to count that as a blessing, give them a wide berth in passing, and move on.

Why do you have such a bad attitude towards other people who are different from you? I don't understand this disdain you exhibit for others. It's really kind of sad because you seem to be quite intelligent, and I would think you could look past one's outward appearances.Unless he's a paid actor or a deliberate troll, I kind of doubt it.

You can live your life like that, but you'll miss out on a lot of wonderful interesting people and experiences.Why suffer fools if you don't have to? If a person chooses to (almost literally) wear a giant sign around their necks pointing themselves out as a moron to everyone within a four block radius, I'm going to count that as a blessing, give them a wide berth in passing, and move on.
I really don't "socialize" with people for the Hell of it. Outside of the group of friends I actually know and like to spend time with, my interactions with other people generally serve a concrete, predetermined purpose.
"Do you know the time?"
"What aisle is ___ on?"
"Can I help you find something? (I'm only talking to you because my job requires it)"
If I can avoid wasting my time dealing with someone that I can already tell I have a pretty strong probability of disagreeing with or disliking ahead of time, I'm going to do it. There's simply no logical reason why I should give them the time of day, as far as I'm concerned.
