My husband and I were discussing an article about rape. It pointed out that sometimes victims feel guilt if they were wearing clothes that were revealing. He made a comment along the lines of women shouldn't dress like that then...And I said clothing is never an excuse for rape. I said 'Are you saying that if a woman goes out in a bikini and then gets raped it is her fault?' He said no but a bikini is not the same as going to a bar with her ass hanging out of her skirt and dancing with men...
I am disturbed by his thought process...while I agree that kind of dress and behavior may not be classy there is NEVER an excuse for rape. He once also told me if I was raped he would probably never want to have sex with me again...
Sometimes I can not understand why I am married to this person...

My DF can be a bit disturbing at times. But he grew up in a lifestyle I can never understand. I haven't heard him say anything about Rape being the fault of a women's wardrobe. I have heard him discuss that a women shouldn't tease a man, He has said that if a women teases a man and then lets the man think that she will allow him to have sex with her then at the last minute tell the man no, then she initiated the rape. Which is disturbing, rape is never asked for. If a women says no then she means no. And this is the 21 century a women should be allowed to wear what she wishes to wear and not be looked at as a piece of meat.
