From an email from a Merjeo Reader who is a woman:
If the woman did not dress slutty, in revealing clothes she would not have been raped. I think most would agree that women are mostly to blame for getting raped.
Response from Merjeo:
Come on, Girl! Where’s the loyalty to your own gender?
First of all, let me ask you, “Were You, or a Friend of Yours Raped?” If so, I don’t want to know about it. But I’ll tell you who is to blame.
Rape is always the man’s fault, point blank, closed issue. Sometimes, it’s also the woman’s fault.
There’s one very simple word in the English language that people have a hard time saying. This word is NO. If the woman dresses slutty, as you put it, I wouldn’t say that she’s asking for it. But, if she flirts with the soon to be rapist, she definitely is asking for it. Of course, she could push the panic button and say NO, but the damage has already been done. In this case, it’s not the fault of only the woman or only the man. Both are at fault.
Say no at the beginning, don’t flirt with a scumbag, and it’s not your fault. If you do flirt, I wouldn’t say you’re getting what you deserve, because rape is always wrong. But you’re not helping your situation.
