Naturally, this is, in terms of evolution, as seen in the wild amongst animals, both genders of mammals find ways to attract the opposite sex. It's just the way we work - it has nothing to do with binary structures - nobody wishes to engage in a relationship, or better yet, engage in sexual relationships, with somebody they don't find the least bit attractive - whether physically, or emotionally. In that sense, both genders do things as to catch their desired partner's attention.
Why rapes happen the way they do in society?
I take one philosophical point here. The done is also accountable for the action in part as the doer.
Why are women raped? Are they not responsible at all? When a woman wears a glossy, shiny tight jeans, and at times walk half-naked that are exhibitions, or showing-offs our of their vainglory or arrogance. They hook males towards them.
Why do women wear very attractively after all? Naturally to attract opposite sexes? Opposite sexes cannot contain themselves in such circumstances and become aggressive, and of course aggression is man's one of the primeval motives. What is more man has biological instincts and has sexual organs and they respond to external stimuli and on this ground man's aggressiveness is vindicated.
I do not vindicate man sexual harassment man is engaged in, at times women too at all but I do not want to be simply dishonest to truth.
If we leaf through evolutionary historical treatises man has always been aggressive, and his aggressiveness was not just the choice but the need to in order to fortify himself and his family members against outsiders or attackers.
Modesty is a good word, and if women keep it and do not exhibit vulgarity the way they do, walking almost nakedly, wearing too much glossy dresses and behaving funnily man becomes subdued, hooked and of course goes amok.
What I said may infuriate women largely but truth must be told at any cost sooner or later.
“Those who seek to satisfy the mind of man by hampering it with ceremonies and music and affecting charity and devotion have lost their original nature””
“If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation.
Oh, ohkay... so we are responsible for being raped?
Rape is an act of VIOLENCE against a woman. The act is "sexual" because it involves some kind of intercourse, but it is not sexually driven.
It's about finding a victim. It's about overpowering that person and hitting them in their most weak and vulnerable spot. Sex is meant to be trusting and comfortable, rape exploits that, rape is the most degrading act any woman can experience.
NO one asks for rape.
A woman should be able to display her beauty without fear of being sexually assaulted because of it. And men should have enough self control. What you have said is not only offensive to a woman but to a man also.
People don't go around.. raping people, because they may see them "semi naked" and think, oh, i'm attracted to her, i'm going to rape her.. - rape is about POWER, it's not about attraction.
Rapists target the vulnerable, including elderly women. Rarely does it have anything to do with being attracted sexually to their victim. They want to target a person they can exercise their power over. It is about the rapist themselves, not the victim.
Why should we women, feel ashamed of our bodies? bodies that were given to us. Why should we feel like the only way we can be safe, is if it is covered up?
I wore skinny jeans the other day, and a t shirt that barely covered me up - so i guess that means i'm responsible, if i'm raped yeah?
It's not about attraction. I' don't feel the urge to "rape" people i'm attracted to...
It's about power, inadequacy, and finding someone to exert power over, for gratification.

+1 to limajean. Rape isn't as much about sex as it is about control. For most rapists, it doesn't matter what the woman's wearing, it just matters that they're a woman.
By this logic, I should arrested for sexual assault every time I go to the beach.Naturally to attract opposite sexes? Opposite sexes cannot contain themselves in such circumstances and become aggressive, and of course aggression is man's one of the primeval motives.
"Sorry Officer, but he looked so good with his shirt off!"
There are things you can do as a female that make you a hard target. Not doing them doesn't mean you "deserve" to be raped, are asking for it, or are in any way at fault. Walking around in a bad part of town wearing Gucci sunglasses may not be smart, but it's still not your fault if you get mugged.
It also does a pretty big disservice to men to say they can't control their physical urges. That sounds dangerously close to that whole 19th century crap about how men have sexual desires that "need" to be filled and women don't.
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it's not.
Really? I may be in the minority but if a man thinks he can do better elsewhere then go.
It seems like to me you are suggesting women should do whatever it takes to keep her man but I have to wonder at what cost? Is it worth it to wrap your self worth into keeping a man who may not even be worth it? And why is he more special then I am??
