Rape and Clothing!!!

Rebbeca a standard eight girl returned from school one evening.She removed her school uniform, put on her easy, light evening dress and settled on the warm soft couch to watch her favourite program on the television while taking some tea before doing her homework.After a few minutes the mother realises that she forgot  to buy some vital ingredients for preparing supper.She decides to ask  Rebecca to make a quick dash to the market to get the supplies.Rebecca jumps out of the couch and goes.

On her way to the market she decides to take a short-cut through a forest,forgetting that a shortcut may sometimes be a long cut..A rugged man,a drug addict who had been eying her sees her going through the forest and decides to follow her closely. In the thick of the forest,this  predator all of a sudden pounces on her and forcibly rapes her.Sad!

The law took its course and the rapist was arrested.Discouraging still was the fact that there was a group of people who felt that the rape incident happened because of Rebecca’s inappropriate dressing! 

Rapist have a distorted way of thinking. They are either Brain washed or perverted.

Years back,the debate on whether women should put on trousers or not illicited alot of reations.

One of the arguments that was fronted was that it would promote promiscuity. That it would make people more immoral.That it would increase the number of rape cases.And that’s where my question lie 

:Does the kind of clothing promote rape?

  • Rape has nothing to do with the type of clothing, its in the mind.
  • In the Northern tribes of Kenya and other indigenous races of the  world women walk all over without much coverings or clothing,but it doesn’t excite any rape feeling.We don’t even hear cases of rape from there!
  • If rape is about ladies exposing their bodies what about those who are reported to rape children?Sad. What do the children expose?? Unconfirmed reports have it that these people who prey on children as young as two months have a misplaced belief that if they have sex with babies the HIV/AIDS virus they may have will be cured.This is what we called brain wash.
  • Most cases of rape too are caused by influence of drug abuse.A big number of rape cases that you hear of will have been committed by a drug user.
  • What about rape among couples? Does it happen in the first place?Though this a discussion for another day .Does it happen because of clothing????

    1. Hi Ranti,
      Thanks for passing by.
      We are the voices that will speak for the voiceless. If we do the little thing that we can including writing against it….then CHILDREN WILL BE SAFER

  1. The immodest clothing excuse is nonsense because rape isn’t an act of attempted intimacy, it’s an act of aggression. Power more than lust motivates these men to violate women and girls in this way. While the justice system certainly needs to play a part in righting these wrongs, I think the real solution lies in the realm of psychology.

    1. Hi,
      I love what you say.
      It more of power,show of might and not lust!
      From the number of cases we handle…If we continue with the line of criminal justice, then our correctional centers will be full of rapists,who even leave those centres as more hardened rapists.

  3. Rape is a disgusting evil present in society. I completely agree with you. Rape has nothing to do with the way a woman dresses. It’s just finding a way to blame the woman for the rapist’s crime
