I see. I have to disagree. Simply because rape won't go away completely doesn't mean we shouldn't try to crack down on it and improve the situation. Preventative measures can be very effective, even if they don't completely eradicate the problem. For example, in my part of the US, it wasn't all that long ago that African-Americans were living in almost constant fear of being lynched. Not so much anymore.

Very true.And I believe we can maturely end our discussion on a positive note.

I'm not sure what double standard the picture on the left is talking about. I'm fairly sure if a woman drinks too much and is caught driving while intoxicated or an offense of that kind, she'd be facing the same consequences a man would.

I'll be honest, I haven't read through all the posts so it's possible this was already said.
Nonetheless...
If I wear a shirt that, for example, says "kill me" on it, does that give anyone the right to kill me?
If not, then how does wearing anything else, that doesn't actually say anything, allow someone to act in a manner that they think is acceptable? (Not a manner that the wearer does)
Rape is doing something against someone's will, and there is nothing anyone can wear that makes this ok.
