I think we'd all agree that saying "her clothes made me do it" is as facile as mumbling "da Debbel made me do it." It's a blame-shifting lie, not "stupidity."
But I also wonder why so much ink is wasted in repeatedly throwing around this "idiots-blame-the-clothes" homily: can we just stipulate that rapists already have the means and motive (and it t'ain't the victim's clothes)... and only require an opportunity?
Limiting the latter, IMHO, seems a more valuable topic than --forgive me here-- endless repetition of a Straw Man argument proclaiming a "right" to dress any-how, act any-way, or be any-where.
Certainly those rights exist; just as certainly, in some situations exercising those rights may well be ill-considered, poor judgement.
Pragmatically, self-protection (and the protection of loved ones) might benefit from a few billboards that point this out --rather than a tired, idealistic slogan, no?
