You damned hussy!!

It's ALL your fault!
Blame the victim: Religious leaflet claims ‘ungodly’ dressed women provoke rape
Canter handed her “Women & Girls” and Yates started reading.
“You may have been given this leaflet because of the way you are dressed,” it begins. “Have you thought about standing before the true and living God to be judged?”
It continues with one essential theme: The sins of men are, in part, the fault of women, specifically women in tight-fitting clothing. Yates was annoyed. Then she got to a section on page two:
“Scripture tells us that when a man looks on a woman to lust for her he has already committed adultery in his heart. If you are dressed in a way that tempts a men to do this secret (or not so secret) sin, you are a participant in the sin,” the leaflet states. “By the way, some rape victims would not have been raped if they had dressed properly. So can we really say they were innocent victims?”
The hand-out is signed “anonymous.”
She was obviously asking for it? What century are we in again? Burkas for women?


And this will prevent men from rape?


So, nice try, you horny fundamentalist. Realize society expects you to control yourself, not the women around you.
