Why do women wear revealing/tight clothing?
So girls don't like it when people look and clearly they don't want to get raped, why wear these kinds of clothes?
The point about rape in ballets and beaches, that doesn't happen because more importantly, rapists rape when they know they can get away with it. In a public place like a beach or a ballet, hundreds of other people are there and you won't get away with it no matter how hard you tried.
I tried to simplify things in the questions although I guess it made me sound ignorant. I'm quite aware of the seriousness of this topic and that is exactly the reason I'm asking it. Interestingly, many women blurted out outrageously at the sight of the word "rape".
Actually I've been reading <I>THE DARK SIDE OF MAN</I>(I hope that was italics lol) and interviews of rapists mostly suggest a sexual motive behind the crimes.
Rape IS a daily thing and happens once around every minute somewhere in the world. A big chunk of this happens in America. I pointed that out cause I know some people probably think they're safe in a developed country like America.
By no means is this a small topic that can be answered here and there isn't really a true answer though so far, some answers have be very good.
Someone mentioned about these clothes being comfortable and I gotta argue that. If it is so comfortable, why suddenly start wearing it at 14 and not when they were 7?
Sure I get that guys also wear different clothes and I do find it hilariously ridiculous when some dude wears jeans that the belt line is at his knees and he can't even walk straight.
Maybe I should redirect this topic to a forum so people can further discuss this...
By the way, keep in mind that there is a rhetorical aspect to this question...
The best answer would probably go to the provider of a good forum since this is more so a discussion than anything. Sorry to people who wanted best answer and already answered that I haven't said that earlier.
I cannot think of an example where you can attract the "right" kind of attention other than fake compliments which we all know are fake and you get them no matter what you wear.
And to some rapists, unattractiveness isn't as much of a turn-off as you'd think. Guys would understand more but the sexual hormones can be so overwhelming at times, it takes over your mind and you just want to ejaculate (but instinctively, to achieve that is through sex). Again, a forum is probably a better home for this topic but posting it here gathers so much more attention than anywhere else. Now I just need to direct this to a forum...
emotions + criticism > facts + words
Guess I chose the wrong place to gather attention for a discussion...
Yes I know that media has a huge role in this but if that were the case, if the media started to become filled with nude people regularly, would a big chunk of us attempt to go outside nude? Sure the media is influential but we still have to think before doing the things we do which most people apparently don't.
Peer pressure is definitely another high influence in this area but it again goes back to people having to think for themselves what's good for them. If I were your peer and I told you not to wear clothes at all cause wearing clothes isn't cool, I'm sure most people wouldn't listen to me. So why listen to people who want you to wear the revealing and tights?
Yes I know I'm basing my opinion mainly on one source but when it makes sense and agrees with logic rather than just trying to sound smart the periodicals are expected to, it's going to be one good source.
There are always exceptions to everything and sometimes it may be about power but that's just SOME of the FEW cases the media presents. The rapes clearly related to violence accounts for less than 1% of rape acts so people shouldn't generalize based on such data.
Yes I may have simplified the question a little too much and made it sound like I'm trying to blame the victims for the rapes but trust me, I'm not. I do suggest that they're partially at fault though even though this part may be like 1% or 5%? If you say the way women dress has NOTHING to do to men's sexual arousal and thoughts of sex, then you are the one who's diluted.
Most girls don't seem to enjoy wearing these clothes if it weren't for the judgment of others and if anything, I'm trying to bring awareness to that than just blaming the victims which I'm not (though I agree I kinda sound like I am).
I apologize if my vagueness has offended people but Yahoo REALLY limits me with the amount of words I can use and most people won't read this much already.
