Promiscuous/provocative clothing causes a sexual response, not rape. A sexual response is necessary with rape. Rape occurs when the answer to that sexual response becomes NO. The point is that evoking cavalier sexual behavior causes unwanted pregnancy, sexually transmitted disease, abortions, more taxpayer welfare, broken marriages, foster children, and death. In light of all that, there won't be any double standards for rape worth holding onto. I don't care about ancient history or some feminist vendetta to make up for thousands of years of bias between the genders. I care about how many cases of each of these deplorable conditions our society suffers from.
I can see where we differ here, and it's in this line:
Agreed. But it isn't necessarily the case that the sexual response comes from how the women looks - for some it is just the case of controlling someone, seeing the fear in their eyes that causes the sexual response...so what they wear isn't the issue, the rapists view of women is the issue.
No doubt that is true in some cases, for many I doubt they even get asked the question to begin with.
