    "or if she did, it would be because she was absorbing the environment around her and didn't realize the consequences, which is still not her fault."

    I am NOT saying she invited rape.  I AM saying if she's dressing in a provocative manner, it's because she's living in an environment where she's come to believe that's a good thing for her to do.  She's been influenced by her environment, she gets esteem from attention.

    Which got the WRONG sort of attention, sadly. And it's NOT HER FAULT.  But -- perhaps it was an unintentional consequence of her clothing.  And it could be reality, which doesn't make it the right reality AT ALL, that her clothing did her no good that day.

    Should she be free to wear whatever? Yeah. Frankly I'd like to see "21-year-old prostitutes" lose the look too. But that's because the image it conjures is of a cheap and tawdry appearance, not because I think they are inviting rape.

    More better?
    (this is what I get for sneaking in a break at work to comment on a charged issue).

      if she was on the beach in a tiny swim suit ?
      If she went to a top less beach ?
      If she went to a nude beach ?

      In Santa Cruz Ca . a person can walk around sans all clothing .
      A few years back a young woman was walking around bare .
      Would she be at all at fault if someone forced her into something against her will ?
