I just saw this British story on TV and I am depressed that so little progress has been made despite the feminism of the last 40 years that attitudes like this are still prevalent. It especially enrages me that in a society that practically forces young girls and women to dress like hookers that the evil double standard is alive and well.
Rape is a crime of violence. It is always about power and control, sex is more of a syptom of the crime than the motivation in most cases according to my hubby, who is a criminologist. In Canada, rape is now known as "sexual assault" in an effort to desexualize the crime. If you change the attitudes even in small ways such as this, the behaviors will eventually follow.
