Money can't buy you class but it can buy you some time in a recording studio even if your "singing" sounds like slinging a bag of cats against the wall.

I don't think any of this is necessarily true. I don't believe anyone really knows what is going through a rapist's mind immediately before and during the act. There was a study conducted in which convicted rapists were simply asked why they did it and they answered that sexual access was "in whole or part of their motivation to rape".

Thornhill, R. & Palmer, C.T. (2000). A Natural History of Rape: Biological Bases of Sexual Coercion. Massachusetts: Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

As for "only beautiful poeple would get raped", I don't think looks would have anything to do with that sort of uncontrolled/uncontrollable urge. To put it bluntly, sex is sex to these people, no matter where it comes from.

Now... Someone wanna remind me how we got here from "Where are the classy women"? Lol.

Sorry,I got off track.
But someone mentioned that if their nephews saw their Aunt in a trashy outfit that the nephews might have sexual thoughts about their aunt. I just have never heard of nephews having sexual thoughts about a Aunt,esp an old one.

You learn something new everyday.

It's part of today's fashion to show a good amount of skin. So if you want to look on trend, the likelihood is you will. Some shirts I wear (partially due to my body type) get a great deal of attention and disapproval from my parents, older generation of my ethnic background or people generally if I were to visit my native country when I thought that that's quite common, at least here in Southern California and I would have to work pretty hard to find something with a higher neckline if I were to go shopping in normal stores.

I'm in my twenties so not much shock me but there are some times like an intern who wear a backless short dress to WORK in an office environment where there's no contact with clients (when I would consider that more club wear if they really were looking for attention) makes me do a double take but considering her age (18-20ish) , it's understandable.

Everybody and I mean everybody has some "white trash" in them. Nobody is 100% classy.

No, I don't think it's understandable to wear that in an office no matter how old you are. It's common sense. If you're going to the club then fine, wear whatever you want. If you're going to a wedding or to work cover it up some. You don't have to dress like an 80 year old grandmother to look attractive, just be reasonable that's all I'm saying.

Girls aren't raised properly anymore.
It's sad.
You don't have to look like a hooker to be attractive, to say the least....
