    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?

    By law and by definition, underage cannot legally give consent. Even if it's alleged and even agreed that it did, it still didn't in the eyes of the law.

    "He/She gave consent" and "look how he/she was dressed and how they were acting" and "He/she asked for it" are standard blame the victim stuff, that never flies in court when it comes to underage victims.

    Little kids should not be dressed as sex toys. That is an issue with their parents.

    Little kids should not be used as sex toys. That is a felony. And Supreme Court to the contrary, should be a capital felony.

    the parent has ZERO, zilch, nada responsibility.

    The responsibility is the rapist's. NO ONE CAN MAKE YOU VICTIMIZE ANOTHER PERSON.



    and here i thought we were beyond that type of stuff. sad.

    The attitude of some men, when they say its ok to harass or put their hands on a woman because she is dressed a certain way, disgusts me. I don't care if a woman is wearing nothing but dental floss and stripper heels, doesn't mean you can put your hands on her if she refuses.

    Exactly - and for good reason.
    A 12 year old girl is not yet mentally capable of understanding sexuality...not even close. Therefore they should not be sexualized by clothing, there should be a distinct difference in clothing for all children until that are at a minimum of 16-17 years old.
    It is terrible that stores sell clothing that is revealing/tight fitting and/or cut to enhance curves. And it is deplorable that parents allow them to wear them!!
    I guarantee that every guy on this forum has felt a little pervy at looking at a "woman" at a distance in that way - only to see that it is a pre-teen when she came closer. That feeling of perviness...quickly turns to anger towards the idiot Mother that is walking with her. (Sorry gals, I have only on one occasions saw this when a Father was present).

    You know Jillian, I'd agree with you, except I saw this article on the news this morning.....

    msnbc.com Video Player

    It's about Abercrombie and Fitch, and their marketing of a push up padded bra on bikinis made for girls age 7 to 12 years old.

    you seem to be missing the point. the point is that it doesn't matter what clothes she puts on ... no one has the right to touch her.

    This thread is an offshoot of that one. As it states in the OP.
