Learned about this from a lawyer's blog... Apparently, an officer in Toronto was giving a safety speech to students at a university in Toronto and made the shocking suggestion that one way to avoid being a victim of sexual assault was not to dress like a slut... Yeah, he's had to apologize for daring to recognize that if you tempt fate, sometimes fate shows up. Don't get me wrong -- women absolutely have the right to dress how they want, and how they dress is not justification for any sexual assault. (Side note: if you're dressed to show off your assets -- don't be surprised and complain when people notice said assets. Notice is not the same as assault or even harassment.) But, at the same time, how you choose to dress and present yourself just may shape how people respond to you. And, since many sexual assaults, especially on college campuses, fall into date rape or acquaintance rape situations where the offender is known to the victim, and often began in a consensual setting (again, not justifying rape -- no means NO and, up to the point of no return, either player can stop), just maybe how you present yourself is something you can control... Maybe it's a good idea to consider that when you go out... But, no, how dare a police officer point that out!
