Police officer apologises to students, saying they can avoid sex attack by not dressing like sluts
Daily Mail ^ | 8:37 PM on 18th February 2011 | By Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 02/18/2011 7:27:42 PM PST by Niuhuru

A police officer who said women could avoid sexual assault by not dressing like “sluts” in an address to law students college has apologised.

Constable Michael Sanguinetti made the stunning remark during a meeting about safety at Toronto's York University.

While a more senior officer was talking, Mr. Sanguinetti interrupted and reportedly said: 'You know, I think we’re beating around the bush here. I’ve been told I’m not supposed to say this, however, women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized.

NO woman deserves rape, but there are too many twisted people out there with no restraint and women should not put the idea of self control solely on men.

It's simple. Kill the men that can't control themselves. Rape is a crime, committed by criminals. No excuses.

Our popular culture abhors restraint these days.

1. It’s not the victims fault, even if she pulls up her skirt and taunts “Don’t you want some?”

2. Dressing like sluts is still a bad idea.

Yeah, he should apologize for that comment.

All us guys know that a woman dressing like a slut doesn't get any extra attention at all!

You are right. The critics and “apologizers are essentially saying: “What would a police officer know about what puts someone at greater risk? No, it would be better to repeat imbecile feminist mantras... Much better to let them dress as they please and learn something about reality.”

Rather misleading arrangement of words in that headline. The statement about dressing like sluts came first, then the apology for it. They weren’t simultaneous.

Of course “not dressing like sluts” is not a goof proof strategy, but they could sure cut their risks.

If you dress to attract attention, you cannot control whose attention you attract. Ever notice that the female bird that sits on the eggs is a drab color so that she isn’t noticed by predators?

That being said, most rapes are not of the slutty chick at the bar, she is giving it away, no need to force it from her. It is the woman jogging alone in the park or going home late at night.

Ouch. Yeah, an apology is in order. But I don’t think he was saying that the way a woman dresses justifies rape.

It’s like my little old saintly Grandma said once: “If you don’t want to be treated like a prostitute, don’t advertise like one.”

Some wisdom there, I think.

Well, I sympathize with the officer. Rape is rape, and it’s the rapist’s fault.

But if you are a woman, and you don’t want to be raped, there are certainly precautions you should take. Don’t walk the streets alone at 2:00 in the morning, for instance. Don’t go out on the town and get falling down drunk. Stay out of the bad parts of town. And don’t dress like a slut.

I presume he said this because he is concerned about the welfare of these young women.

Wrong. Minimize? Reduce? Yes. But avoid, no. Also don't hang out with idiots and avoid the places where idiots tend to congregate.

Actually, I wonder that if a woman did dress like a slut, a punk thinking about raping her might wonder if her PIMP is nearby.

P.S. The slutty chick at the bar is about 100 times more likely to be the victim of date rape or to be raped while she is passed out drunk.

What about the women that claim rape after consensual sex?

Or the ones that make up the charges?

Or the ones that change their mind afterwards.

Are you gonna kill those guys too?

Well, these days women have to STOP pushing their luck. For the past couple of years, I had to rot in Pontiac, MI, the ghetto if you will. I dressed in a baggy coat, basic shoes, jeans, and layered shirts. I didn’t think anything of it since I was after all walking everywhere, but at the point where I was about to leave, I realized just how smart I was in not dressing as I usually did, which is in my hometown where I am now.

It’s not like men who dress in suits for business, but about women dressing BEYOND the pale in regards to what they like to wear when they are out clubbing. It’s no longer tight pants with a sparkley shirt, it’s about a woman wearing a skirt that is barely there, flashing her lady bits, and showing all but the illegal parts of her body.

Or we should say to women...

Yeah, go ahead and dress like the slutty, attention whore beyotch you desire so much to be, but be sure, before you go out, to pack enough heat to stop any one who gives that extra special attention that you more than likely could have avoided if you didn’t dress that way.

Women want to prove how smart they are by becoming the most attractive rape magnets around, but complain when men objectify them for their bodies. Women, do you want men attracted to you for your minds and hearts or just your bodies? The freedom is yours to choose.

“Women, do you want men attracted to you for your minds and hearts or just your bodies? The freedom is yours to choose.”

Words of the infinitely wise. Women need to stop expecting the rest of society to protect them from themeslves and consequences. Society is not made for just women, but men as well.

Dressing like a slut advertises slut. No excuses for dressing slutty. What are women advertising by dressing slutty? They must be trying for attraction or action.

I’ll find the actual study and get back to you, but apparently violent rapists are unusually drawn to either matronly women, young women with an innocent look, but never both matrons an innocents. The provocatively dressed woman was slightly more likely to have been the victim of a non-violent rape, but not nearly enough to offset the almost total absence of violent attacks.

It's probably quite common for police and security consultants to advise men not to make ostentatious displays of wealth in certain circumstances.

A woman doesn’t deserve to be raped regardless of how she dresses but a woman who decides against all common sense to go into the bad part of town winds up getting into trouble. Its all about making the right choice and being a woman doesn’t excuse one from taking care to ensure your own safety.

Rape, like most crime, is a crime of opportunity. IIRC, the studies I've seen that address it indicate rape victims are most likely to be the people least able to defend themselves. A small woman is more likely to be raped than a large woman because she's usually easier to control physically. Young girls are more likely to be raped because they are easy to control and are more likely to do what they're told. Drunk women are unable to resist, and women that are isolated in an area where they can't be heard will be easier to overpower.

Dressing provocatively will probably make a woman more likely to receive crude advances, but being isolated in a rough area makes her far more likely to be a rape victim.

As William Muny said, "Deservin's got nothing to do with it."

You're absolutely correct. People don't deserve to die for forgetting to look both ways before crossing the street, but some of them do.

I think I would have chosen another word than "slut". Like provocative, or promiscuous perhaps.

The difference is having the intelligence, the civilissification, the HUMANITY, to understand the conditions in another persons life that would make a (presumably) young girl dress like a slut.

Anyone male who would harm a woman or child isn’t really a MAN. Not in my world.

The thing is, IMO, it takes a man to teach a boy how to be a man.

It takes a woman (IMO) to teach a girl how to be a woman.

Any variance in the aforementioned will produce some deviations.

But maybe, JUST MAYBE, all that person is asking is this.

WILL YOU BE MY FRIEND????
