Women are asking to get raped by wearing short skirts. Really?

Women have been raped since before they dressed 'slutty'. The whole asking for it is just another excuse to ignore the problem.

This reminds me of an initiative here in Dallas/ Fort Worth area to ban sagging pants. Agreed, people don't look so smart or cool walking around like they've sh*t themselves, but trying to push what is essentially an unenforceable rule is ridiculous. This is similar to a law I heard of (not sure if its still on the books) prohibiting sex between two dudes. You can't enforce something like that. Whether it be sexual preference, or fashion sense (or lack thereof), people are just going to keep on with what they know. Banning a piece of clothing just sounds like lunacy.

I do have to agree with some of the other commenters in this thread about... ahem, advertising. A man is only a man when he is in control of his mind, and therefore I think rapists or any other humans who commit heinous acts in a "moment of passion", are pitiful like small rodents. This in no way should be taken as sympathy for these gross fools, but people need to understand, provocative clothing is just that..... it PROVOKES, whether it be thoughts, feelings, or actions. Have you ever seen a group of guys hanging out, and there's the 1 girl in the group, wearing revealing clothing? They look like drooling, unthinking apes. I am reminded of one person in particular, and she absolutely knew that her so-called friends were looking at her like that. What do you make of this, internet?

There is a schism between what is acceptable behavior for women in our global society. Women are either controlling men with lusty suggestion, or flabbergasted as to why men are treating them like objects, and it's all OUR fault! WE as a society dictate the norm, WE determine what is acceptable, and only WE have the power to change the way things are. You know what? Women DO have the right to wear whatever they choose, but they need to understand that for people who are rapists, their rights are worth less than spit. Have some common sense. The way the world SHOULD be and the way it IS are two different things. All we can do is try to change the world, which an easy thing to do is not.

One of the things that people seem to forget is that rapists can go after anyone.

It doesn't matter what your wearing, it could be a fucking nun's habit for all they care. They're probably more likely to go after a girl in layers who looks weak and easily intimidated than the girl in a short skirt who has confidence and would put up a fight.

Saying a girl's outfit is the 'reason' she got raped is victim-blaming.

lol nope most people dnt understand dat women who wear short stuff are the ones who will get raped, becuase she urges the guy more with his sexual desires than a women who doesnt wear them. Ive seen it happen myself in front of me before why because the women was wearing shorts and was very sexually attractive and got the guys sexual urges out.

Again this forum impresses me with it's ignorance and level of slut shaming that passes for truth. It doesn't matter what you're wearing, you can be naked and that still doesn't warrant rape. Don't teach your daughters to be weary and uncomfortable about their bodies, teach your sons to not be predators and objectify women. It's really simple, stop buying into the notion that boys will be boys and grow up.

Also to anyone making the argument that "girls have to understand what they wear attracts attention and puts indecent thoughts blah blah blah", you're thinking is that of a five year old kid in a room full of candy. Have some self control. It's like saying "oh well see I work as a bank teller and I'm around all these people's money all day so you know, being around it all the time I just couldn't help myself".

This isn't exclusively just a male problem of slut shaming, people of both genders are guilty of this, especially apparent from going over this thread. It's all fine and dandy too when you talk about a victim as if they're just another object or name in the news but how would you feel if it was someone like your girlfriend, wife, mother sister, and honestly also your brother, father(because victims of rape can be of any gender) or really anyone you personally cared about. If the guilt of that doesn't stop someone from "raping" then welcome to being a product of dehumanized atlas shrugged byproduct.

That's the exact problem though, that your mindset, most likely conditioned by a world of rape culture just sees it as the way it is. But why accept it and further push the idea that the crime of rape is caused by some strange fault of the victim and not put the blame on the actual offenders. This isn't something you just accept and get on with like picking coke or pepsi, it's a serious issue largely ignored or underplayed by media and society. Rape culture and slut shaming are still very prominent at least with US Politics and almost every other country in the world. The idea that elected officials think that the length of the skirt is the problem only dwarfs progress towards any chance of equality and growth of a culture.

Exactly. This victim blaming/slut shaming mindset is all too fucking common, . Even f it's only someone's opinion, it still contributes to rape culture. It also makes victims less likely to come forward as they'll think they'll be accused of bringing it upon themselves (they often are, especially if the rapist is well respected in the community)

Women who hold the opinion that the victims' clothes are to blame I think do so in order to feel like they'll never 'put themselves in the situation to be raped'. It's not that simple.

There is no excuse for raping someone, ever. People need to stop looking for them.

Weirdly enough no one ever says anything about what men wear when they get raped or how "provocative" or "seductive" they might have been acting. It's always a very sexist view based on the assumption that women exist primarily for sexual gratification of men and that it's somehow the women's fault for enticing the man with her femininity. A rapist will always try to find ways of justifying their crime, if not to others, at least to themselves and continuing to support those type of justifications is more wrong than if a woman walked down the street naked.

I like Iiniku Ushijima's work in cosplay (she's an ero-cosplay idol), but I do not believe that she is asking to be raped for doing ero-cosplay. To me, rape is a huge violation of a persons free-will, and is the fault of the rapist, not the victim.
