Trigger warning: Rape, slut shaming, self-hating women.

I’m sorry, but girls do need to realize that what they wear contributes to rape. If you are showing a man what you have through your skimpy clothing, you clearly want him to have it. Or at least you give him that impression. And of course the girls who dress like this are the ones who go out and drink “too much” and while doing so flirt with men all night. 

I get so tired of seeing on tumblr that girls should be able to wear and do whatever they want and drink as much as they want while doing it. No. If you want to accept the consequences, do it. If you don’t want to get raped, dress modestly, drink modestly, and have actual morals when you’re out with men. 

No, it really doesn’t. Rapists look for vulnerability, not necessarily clothing choice. Rapists are attracted to women that wear less clothing and show more skin, but in reality, if a less modest woman is in control of the amount of alcohol/other substances she consumes, constantly watches her drink to make sure it isn’t messed with, sticks with people she knows and trusts, and knows what precautions to take just in case she’s attacked, she more than likely won’t ever be raped.

If you have certain standards and opinions on how women should dress, that’s one thing, but it’s another thing entirely to blame rape on something as small as clothing choice when it’s really soberness and alertness that play a huge role in preventing it.

Stop all this focus on how women can prevent themselves from getting raped - START TEACHING MEN NOT TO RAPE. 

Girls shouldn’t act like sluts and dress like sluts, because they should RESPECT THEMSELVES. They shouldn’t get so drunk that they don’t even know what they’re doing, because they should RESPECT THEMSELVES. The prime reason for “controlling yourself”, for want of a better phrase, isn’t to prevent yourself getting raped. I hate how people say it like that. It’s to make yourself seem like someone who has a little respect for themselves and who others can respect.
Rape, however, is NOT ABOUT RESPECT ON THE PART OF THE WOMAN.
It’s about a man who does not respect women. Not a man who does not respect one particular woman because he happens to be able to see her cleavage, so thinks, oh yeah, I know what I’ll do, I’ll rape her, that’s a good idea yay!
Men who rape decide to rape; that’s their fault, not the woman’s fault. If it’s not one woman it’ll be a different one.
And we neglect to even think about children and men who are raped. How exactly is this gonna apply to them??

… Ex-fucking-cuse me?! Do not EVER reblog something from me and add commentary like that, if you please. It associates your fucked up and warped opinion with mine, and it also means I have to read your appalling, slut shaming bullshit, which no, shockingly, I don’t actually want to do.

The last part of your twisted little commentary is all well and good, but what is this trollop about not dressing like sluts because women should respect themselves? Fuck. You. What classifies an outfit as ‘slutty’, just out of curiosity? Do we have to have a certain percentage of skin covered? Can’t wear shorts if you’re wearing a midriff top? No cleavage on display? What exactly is the criteria? Is there a rulebook I didn’t know about? I’m curious.

A woman can respect herself just as much in a string bikini as she would in jeans and a turtleneck; if you genuinely think otherwise then you need to do some serious thinking about how you view the world, and what’s happened to you in your life to give you such a warped perception of reality.

Outfit choice =/= indication of self respect.
Sexual activity =/= indication of self respect.
Number of sexual partners =/= indication of self respect.

Judging other women based on the above factors = MASSIVE indication of lack of self respect.
