Never put yourself in the position of thinking any one else "should" dress according to guildlines you find acceptable for yourself for your reasons. Think about who you are thinking like when you do this. No one should ever be punished or victimised by anyone for his/her own personal decisions. Judge Yourself.
This is from the Slut Walk. One of the arguments is that girls ask for rape because they wear "slutty" clothes, short skirts, tight, low-cut tops. which brings up an incredibly important message, rape is rape. no one is ever "asking for it". A woman has the right to dress how ever they want - it is society that identifies risque dressing as ‘asking for it’, and in my opinion, that way of thinking is shit. this honestly breaks my heart.
“Being a woman is not a means to humiliate and punish anyone.” In the Iranian Kurdish town of Marivan, a policeman paraded an accused criminal through the streets in women’s clothes as a humiliation. Women marched in protest, and Kurdish and other Iranian men have taken to the internet dressed in traditional women's costumes and posting messages of support for the dignity and worth of women.
