A Woman’s provocative dress Is an invitation for rape | Political Myth

Must read

On this special segment of the Naked PolitiXXX Podcast, Jeff, Emil and Jan Argy discussed the myth that a woman’s provocative dress is an invitation for rape.

Here is a sneak peek of the podcast:

Q: On not wearing provocative dresses in public catering attention: is it victim blaming or a warning?

A:

“Actually, may nakausap akong pulis about that. Sa crime, may dalawang bagay na p’wedeng mangyari—mayroong motive, at mayroong opportunity. So ‘yung motive na ‘to, hindi natin ‘to hawak, (parang) wala kang magagawa doon. Kapag may motibong gawan ka ng krimen, wala kang control doon kasi hindi mo alam, eh; ‘di mo alam na may motibo. Pero ‘yung opportunity daw, ‘pag binigyan mo ng opportunity ‘yung kriminal, that’s something we can do about. Doon pumapasok ‘yung logic nila na kapag hindi ka naka-provocative dress, wala kang flesh na ipinapakita, mas hindi ka pagtutuunan ng pansin.”—Jeffrey Reyes

“Of course, that is a very stupid notion that we need to destroy. Kasi, number one—it creates a false burden sa mga babae. Secondly, it is a false cause. Gumagawa tayo ng false causation between doon sa suot ng babae at sa behavior [of the rapists]. This is very unfair sa mga side ng mga babae, and sinasabi nga nila that these two narratives are a product of a patriarchal culture.”—Emil Samaniago
