    asks what a man was wearing when he was raped.

    I did a little study (using college students as subjects, so that's how limited it was) looking at the variables that make people blame a victim for being raped. The shorter her skirt, the racier the location (e.g., bar v college library), the longer she took to report -- all of these things caused people to blame or disbelieve the rape victim.

    We've got a long way to go.
