This topic could be a volatile one and I hope it doesnt transgress to that. Id really like to get input on your thoughts about this because frankly..it bugs me. But there are so many different what ifs and how comes and why dids...the whole topic could go in any direction. So I will try to focus on one aspect of the many paths it could take and that topic follows Echo Zulus thread about padded bras in bikinis for 8 year olds. Recently, there was a story of rape about a girl that was I think 11. Or she could have been 14 or even 8. I forget. However, the stories going around by the press was this girl dressed like she was in her 20's, very risque, and hung around guys older than herself. And she was raped. Now here is where the slippery slope comes in. Rape is WRONG if the woman (girl) says NO. Doesnt matter the age..NO means NO. However, what if it was concentual? Kids are raised nowadays by parents who are unlike Echo and the other ladies in that thread. Parents actually BUY clothing that enhance over developed or even underdeveloped childrens bodies, dont pay attention WHO they hang out with or WHERE their children are at night, etc. Now I ask you....what parent has an 11 year old, dressed like a pole dance, hanging out at night at a park with a bunch of guys and has no clue? Then when the girl is caught in a sexual act she said it was rape? And what if it was rape? No, it is not the girls fault. Its the PARENTS who didnt know where she was, who she was with, and BOUGHT the clothing she was wearing that practically had a sign on her that said "do me". WHY are the parents so damn clueless? Your thoughts on this?
