Read the link, had to sit on my hands to keep from face palming myself into a coma

Escape, ah, a lace front? Burn the whore! Its funny when the same people make fun of muslim female clothes while thinking the same way the ancient muslims did.
EscapeAuthor
Meth Wyde, not just a lace front, but a thong too! She's the one who should be going to jail, he should sue her for making him rape her because of her underwear. That poor guy is probably scarred for life now

Lacy thongs should be mandated unisex wear

I read the article and I read the articles that inspired this. I agree 100% that a woman's underwear or lack theteof has nothing to do with consent. What I'm left wondering is what do we do about this, at least in the courts? I think it's up the prosecutor to raise an objection of relevance but I don't know how it works in Ireland. It was a dirty trick from the female defense attorney. I wonder if the male prosecutor was caught off guard or unsure how an objection would play with the jury. I guess the bigger issue is that it's a society where this was brought up at all.
EscapeAuthor
Genders of the attorneys don't matter. I don't know how courts work in Ireland either, but none of the articles I read stated there was a problem that the prosecuting attorney did not object. This is what the US was like not that long ago, can only hope this crime sparks change in their system. Or 17 year old girls in Ireland will have to switch to white cotton drawers in case some 27 year old guy decides to rape them

So I guess if someone gets shot or killed in a bad neighborhood it would be the victim's fault. He or she should've known better than being or live in a bad neighborhood.
EscapeAuthor
I wonder if that comes into play in Ireland

...but it had lace

I'm sorry but I don't understand what you find amusing about this

Rapists do rape its 100 % true but this fast is not accepted mostly that's why I laughed. Sorry 🙏.
EscapeAuthor
Thanks for the explanation, I can understand that. Read the link though, you'll see how awful this really is.

My daughter is taking a criminal law class and last week she couldn't stop fuming about the rape cases on college campuses that are not reported. She kept saying "how do they just NOT report it?"!!! "How can they do that"?? She's 17. She is learning about the world and I love seeing her young mind figuring out these things. She is going to take a self defense classes before she goes to college ..also because she likes the idea of kicking someone's ass

EscapeAuthor
So many reasons women don't report, hopefully that will be covered in her class. Defense classes are great, but it's also good to always be aware of your surroundings and project self confidence

Umar Rashid, are you saying that short skirts are a cause of rape?

I agree with this 100% - it angers me a lot when rapists are given leeway... But, I remember from an article I’ve read... basically both the guy and the girl had been drinking heavily and then had sex together... but the next day she reported him saying he raped her... that is the kind of case where ‘alcohol’ could be really an issue....

EscapeAuthor
This is really about what she was wearing being used as part of the defense. Should we all start wearing white cotton granny panties just in case?
Bravefoot
Escape, no, obviously no, I was just mentioning that from another article...
EscapeAuthor
I know, just have to be careful since there are some people who will be happy to twist it. Granny panties was a rhetorical question

First you said it was short skirts, and now it's alcohol. Any other excuses for rapists?

Escape, didn't it ?

EscapeAuthor
So if women stopped wearing short skirts that would reduce the number of rapes?

EscapeAuthor
No answer? Good, it's better when you're quiet. I don't think there's any way to explain this to you in a way that you will understand, maybe someone else wants to give it a try.

There are obviously no excuses for rape, but people can be irresponsible.

EscapeAuthor
What constitutes irresponsible?
Infidel Castro
Escape, people putting themselves in situations where they couldn't possibly be more vulnerable is pretty irresponsible
EscapeAuthor
What kind of situation would that be?
Infidel Castro
Escape, could be getting blackout drunk at a party with no sober friends and a lot of strangers.
EscapeAuthor
Not a smart thing to do but not an invitation to rape.
Infidel Castro
Escape, I didn't say it was, I said it was irresponsible.
1
EscapeAuthor
Infidel Castro, I know you didn't, but there are others here who seem to have difficulty with the concept. But it's still blaming the victim and fortunately I don't think it's allowed as part of a defense anymore
Meth Wyde
Infidel Castro, the purpose of building a better society is to allow people to get drunk at a party without thinking of how dangerously irresponsible it might be.
Infidel Castro
Meth Wyde, are we at that point? No. So it's irresponsible. Didn't have anything to do with what I said
EscapeAuthor
Infidel Castro, there are those who believe wearing a short skirt is irresponsible or being out alone at night.
Meth Wyde
Infidel Castro, my society is around this point. Russia has 3 rapes per year for 100000 people. For USA it's 27. Looking sexy is a common and natural thing, not an invitation for a rape. If the society says that wearing a paranja is the best way to stop rapists then it's the society that has issues, not women's beauty.
1
Infidel Castro
Meth Wyde, frankly, I don't believe Russians are that benevolent. I'd guess it's not reported. But if it's true, good for Russia. The rest of what you said is refuting points I didn't make.
2
Infidel Castro
Escape, I wouldn't be out alone at night in my town. It can be easy to take unnecessary risks in some areas
Meth Wyde
Infidel Castro, in Moscow they report everything suspicious. It's definitely not a problem here. When getting drunk at a party becomes a custom, nobody finds so much of an opportunity in it. That's where it conserns the points you made. If you continue to restrict people from everything "irresponsible" instead of cultivating respect for whamen in your society, then nothing is gonna change.
Infidel Castro
Meth Wyde, what did I say about restricting anything.
Meth Wyde
Infidel Castro, after all, I shouldn't be conserned about what people think of my "responsibilities" when I get drunk at a party.
Meth Wyde
Infidel Castro, you restrict something when you call it irresponsible to do.
EscapeAuthor
Infidel Castro, we all have our own ways of risk assessment. And no matter how paranoid someone is, anything can happen at any time
2
Infidel Castro
Meth Wyde, how does that make any sense? Nobody was kept from doing whatever they want because of what I said.
Meth Wyde
Infidel Castro, its not that you physically restrict anyone. Sorry if I got something wrong, it just looked like you disapproved the certain kind of behavior calling it irresponsible. I made a point that it's better to target the social problems to eradicate the danger of that behavior instead of putting that behaviour under judgment.
1
Infidel Castro
Meth Wyde, the only reason I'd disapprove of it is because it's irresponsible. I don't care if people get drunk or high in general. Yeah, it'd be better if nobody ever did anything bad, but that really won't happen
Soothingshrimp4
All I got to say to this article is that people suck. There is no, and will never be, an excuse for rape. Ever. Consent should be given before anything happens, both women and men. And since this doesn't get boring up enough consent can be taken away at any time and that needs to be respected as well.
