Men as a whole might get more sex if there was no "slut shaming".  It's a very self-defeating position that men at large engage in.

No, a woman doesn't "deserve" to be raped for what she wears. With that said, there are certain things that increase your risk of bad events happening and she does bear the responsibility for increasing those risks (if she did increase those risks).

If so, then Christians who share their beliefs bear the responsibility if they are persecuted for those holding those beliefs.

Eric, good to see to you.

But yes, I agree with you here and Jesus said as much.

If I get a facial tattoo and then go in for a white collar job interview...what do you think that does for me? Things "shouldn't" necessarily be a certain way, but they are. And denying that reality is retarded. A woman dressing provocatively may be "asking for it", she may not be "asking for it". But she's certainly welcoming attention to herself. Whenever I hear a woman say "I dress like this for myself"....my first thought is "oh so you doll up with the makeup and risqué clothing when you roll out of bed on a Saturday morning with the intention of having a down day on the couch by yourself?" Cuz if not, you're full of it and there's a reason you dress the way you do when you know you'll be around other people.

Greg, if you are a Chicago fan wearing a Bears jersey, should I kick you in the face because I'm a Packers fan?  You were asking for it!  You wore something that provoked me.  You were drawing my attention.  You showed up at Lambeau Field wearing this jersey...you should have known better. 

Do you bear the responsibility of a beating, even if you simply sat in your seat and watched the game quietly?  That's the logic you and Paul are using...there's just right and wrong on this one...no grey area.  Cheers!

Sanjeev there is right and wrong, and reality. The world is not utopian and bad people exist. Being naive to that is "asking for" trouble.

Greg I'm very well aware of that.  But as a student of Buffett and Munger's or a fan of Steve Jobs and Elon Musk, are you building a Utopian world or just reality.  Your beliefs, morals and culture go a long ways in building the community and subsequently the world you live in.  Aim higher!  Cheers!

Im a diehard Yankees/Devils fan. I've had the common sense to never wear a Yankee/Devils jersey at Fenway or MSG. If you want to move this to a more empirical debate, do you think your odds for being harassed/assaulted go up or down, if you wear those shirts into those venues. Lets not even discuss going to Philly lol...
