Actually it isn’t about who is scantily clad, and way to blame the victim. A woman is a human being, not an object to be stolen and pawned. Shame on you!
Women (and men) of all ages, body types, races, and clothing choices get raped. One in three women are sexually assaulted by the time they are 18.
I was seven years old and wearing pink fuzzy pants and a shirt. I guess I was somehow an easier target, displaying the “merchandise?” NO.
There is no excuse, no justification, no way of shrugging it off as “she was asking for it because she dressed that way/walked down the wrong street/was too outspoken/made waves.”
I hope you never have to learn the reality of sexual assault.
