    Rape and Clothing

    Since posters are getting upset that the yoga thread keeps getting derailed I will ask this here. Do you think most (true cases- not made up, let's not turn this into he said she said discussion) people who get raped are wearing revealing clothing?

    I believe opportunity is usually the primary way a target is chosen.

    Re: Rape and Clothing

    I'd venture so far as to say "no," though I'm sure it plays a role in at least some rapes, and probably a lot of date rape cases as well.

    I don't know, I don't think it matters. Rape is about power not what clothing a woman is currently wearing. A man doesn't all of a sudden magically turn into a rapist because of a short skirt...

    Well, again, an exception to that might be some cases of date rape, where the guy feels that he is being given "signs" from a woman that he really is not and the situation escalates out of control from there.

    Random prowlers probably aren't going to be quite so concerned about this kind of thing.

    Women get raped for being women. Even 70 year old women in wheel chairs get raped. Clothing may get you leered at but it is not a factor in rape.

    It's not about clothing. If she was dressing provocatively, it means that she was asking for it. No rape.

    Re: Rape and Clothing

    Rape is really about power, moreso than about sex. That's why it's used as a weapon of war sometimes.

    Besides which, even if a woman is wearing sexy clothing, if she says no you don't get a pass.

    Who cares?

    People are raped because sick people rape them...the common denominator is a lack of mental health on the part of the attacker, not a lack of conservative clothing on the part of the victim.

    If he rapes her in the case of date rape, it still comes down to power and control regardless of what excuse he may give for it. It still has nothing to do with what she was wearing.
