Sexual Violence Myths: Provocative Clothing Is A Risk Factor - ConsentEd

Here is a link

What comes to her clothing I repeat myself, I think it is unpleasant flashing to show too much. Impolite toward other people. There is nothing wrong in nipples but serving them for everyones eyes does not take consider that viewer might not want to see anyones nipples (or other parts).

Also

"studies of rapists suggest that victim attire is not a significant factor. Instead, rapists look for signs of passiveness and submissiveness, which, studies suggest, are more likely to coincide with more body-concealing clothing."

If she has the body legs and azz for a miniskirt I have no problem with that.
I think the miniskirt can attract unwanted attention in some cases.
I don't know if a miniskirt will be a deciding factor or even a factor if some psycho wants to rape a woman.
It can be inappropriate depending in the setting

You can compromise, OP. I wear skorts. They look better than shorts, and you don't have to worry about them revealing to much. win-win!

Why would wearing a mini skirt be "bad" ? This is America, not Dehli. Men are far more refined in developed countries.

Mini skirts are inappropriate in most public venues and almost all work places (not "all").

In general, dresses and skirts should hit a little above the knee to allow modesty but free movement. Long dresses should be avoided, unless it's evening wear for an event or there is another specific reason for them.

Mini skirts may be worn to private parties or events where they are culturally acceptable. Hollywood parties would be one example.

I'm a nasty old lady on this topic because I've had to teach youngsters about work-appropriate clothing, which gets harder and harder to find every year. The fabric is getting thinner and much of what I consider evening wear is now worn during the daytime.

That still doesn't make it acceptable in a conservative law or state office.

Yes, you have a right to dress how you want, but if you want to be taken seriously at many jobs and win a promotion, you can't dress like a skank.

that is like saying that going to a bar is reason for a woman to be raped. I personally think it just a style and often say more about the persons standards just like way men dress. No matter what one thinks society will decide standards and societies vary. For example; a prostitute dresses the way most do for a specific effect; plain and simple. If you dress like one do not be surprised if people wander about your reason .

I thought it was a lack of rape "awareness" that got women raped? Or is it patriarchy or rape culture maybe? I don't keep up with the latest nonsense from the social justice warrior loonies.
