The Lion's Cage

John was an angry man who got sick of people telling him where he can or can't go. So one day he goes to the zoo, walks into the lion's cage, and takes a walk, even shaking his meaty behind in the lion's face.

After the lion took a bite out of him, the police came and put him away where he could do no more harm. He was angry that the lions didn't control themselves and that he was blamed for their bad behaviour. The law enforcers were laughing as they locked him in his cell.

Maybe you can guess what I'm getting at with this stupid simile. No, not that girls are asking for it when they get raped, but that sometimes they should know better. Yes, men are supposed to control themselves and none of them are actually beasts...right?

Wait, so you mean to say you knew some men behave like animals and yet you went to a male crowd in a provocative dress and even danced in front of them?

I hope you get put in jail for your stupidity.



The majority are rapes happen within close relationships. Girlfriends, wives, nieces, daughters and sisters are raped, by their boyfriends, husbands, uncles, fathers and brothers - respectively. Also very common is the rape of prostitutes by their male employers.

Rapes of "regular girls" by strangers are rare. Most rapes have nothing to do with female behavior, speech, or clothing. They have to do with controlling those women, putting them in their place, or punishing them for not being responsive to (usally inappropriate) wooing, or otherwise not fulfilling whatever role the rapist want them to fulfill.

Yes, women should know better. We should never forget that men, unlike lions, devour their own species. We should never forget that men, unlike lions, kill for the sake of feeling powerful, not for eating. We should never forget that men, unlike lions, refuse to accept the power, nature, and dignity of their females.

1. Statistics: "31% of female victims reported that the offender was a stranger" "35% by acquaintances" and the rest by boyfriends and family - I'd hardly call 66% rare.

2. Even amongst non-strangers the same points can be applied.

3. All statistics aside, the fact remains that many many women do stupid things like party with men they hardly know, wear provocative dresses in unsafe places, go to a date's place alone with the intention of only going half-way, go to Mike Tyson's apartment, etc. And then they sink to even lower levels of stupidity, saying the men should have controlled themselves.

You think behaviour and dress have almost nothing to do with being raped? Then what can I say except that I hope you don't learn the hard way.
