What is the % of girls under 18 drinking in the night clubs? I've seen firends found guilty of rape all because the little spoilt brat was late home from drinking and for a defence scream rape. Pairents should be at fault for letting their children drink. If a girl drinks under the age of 18, and screams rape, then sorry, its her fault for being out and drinking. If she dosn't want to be raped then don't go out under the age of 18!

There is only a small % of non-drinking people that get raped, its a shame to say, but drinking is the main cause of 80% of crime within the world.

For thoes poor people (men and women) who get raped each year from perverts then this % is very low.

Your spelling makes your ridiculous argument even more invalid.

So rape is the fault of parents, under 18's who dare to go out and people who drink (as well as the others that gary doesn't mention about how we dress etc..). The mental gymnastics required to contort the brain away from the obvious fact that rape is the fault of men who make an active choice to rape is really quite incredible.
How do you account for the women and children who are raped in their home gary? Or the women who are over 18? Or the women who haven't had a drink? Or the women who wear every assortment of clothing under the sun from revealing to fully covered who are still raped? Or the women who get raped at all times of the day? Or the women who get raped by men using sexual violence as a weapon of war?
When will it finally sink in that it doesn't matter what we do as women, that men make continue to make the choice to rape in every conceivable situation.
