@Arch, the magic age is 12 my man. But for me, that's just where the controversy begins  ;-)

@Jessica, I'm at peace. Are you not at peace with me? I'm having a good time here.

@Unseen - what, no hook?

RE: "Are you sure about that?" - I'm sure that it was, but since I have no reason to keep abreast (no pun intended) of such things, it could have been changed.

"considering women have no regard for how the way they dress/present themselves as highly sexual beings affects the men around them"


Aside from the million things wrong with this statement... You're basically saying that men shouldn't be expected to control themselves, and instead... what? Dress women in garbage bags because men can't control their dicks? So it's a woman's fault for not hiding her body in fear or shame? I don't understand this at all. A woman can dress however she wants, and there should never be a point where you can say, "You know what? She deserved to be forcibly and violently penetrated against her will because she was sexy and they couldn't resist her, or resist their primal urges." Just... no. Nothing gives anyone the right to rape. Period.

That's a bit of a straw man, don't you think? You've turned a statement that says basically that women need to not assume that all men can be trusted (need to be aware of the few bad apples and act accordingly) to one saying that women should assume that no men can be trusted.

@Unseen

Maybe it's the way it was phrased? "women have no regard for how they dress/present themselves" rubbed me the wrong way. His statement made it seem to me that, basically, women should know better than to wear revealing clothing because they affect men sexually and that will cause them to be raped.
