A common misconception about rape is that it's a sexual act, when really it's an act of violence.

It's literally in textbooks people. Look it up.

As stated above, rape is more often than not about power instead of sex. If you look at rape cases you can easily see it doesn't make a difference what somebody is wearing. Why in the world are we blaming victims instead of rapists?

Because scapegoating is easier than working to solve the problem.

I'm actually getting my degree in criminology, and there are studies to show both sides. It both can and cannot have something to do with it. There was one specific study that talked to previously incarcerated rapist on what they look for when selecting a victim. Some wanted woman to look a certain way, and some wanted the woman to dress a certain way. A lot of the time they look for a woman who is distracted, alone and is wearing a skirt. If you have someone following you and you do not know them, this study said to turn and look at them and engage them in a conversation. Such as, "Do you know what time it is?" They do not want someone who will put up a fight, and talking to them like that shows you would fight.

Some people get off on power struggles. BDSM is such an example.

I think clothing has little to do with victims getting raped. I mean rape is an act of violence and dominance.
