Para Extropper,

No, but if your money was showing and the robber that it would be easy to take. He would take it, wouldn't he?
Robbery/Stealing is steal wrong but if the robber finds it as an easy snatch he would take it, without giving a second thought to whether it was bad or good. So, I'm saying, that if their wearing extra extra revealing clothing. They'd ovbiously think of them as an easy getaway? Do you get it?

And for him to say that makes sense because these women are wearing this revealing clothing, which excludes wearing shorts on a hot day. Everyone knows there are good and bad decisions to make and it includes in clothing as well.Okay its like saying, A women going into say a whore house, gets raped by men. Would the blame not be on her a bit, because she made that bad choice when she knew what it was? Cause we all know rape is very common nowadays, so dressing so I guess, revealed is like you having an open sign for rape practically.

Yes that is agreed. Its for freedom and comfort. But it may also cause uncomfortability as well. For an example, some people are comfortable wearing loose clothing, or revealing clothing. While other people are comfortable wearing shorts and such. So, thats completely different from what I'm saying. I'm saying it for people, "women" to be more precise that dress that way for THAT reason.

Also, you said "if a person cannot control their desires or actions the onus of responsibility lies completely with them. They are responsible for their actions, no one else." If they are the ones, as you say responsible for their own actions. Then why blame it on other muslims or Islam. Since, they are the ones that commited their crime not the others. Thats like saying I steal and the police man blames it on you because your the same religion as me. Or blames it on our religion? Does that make sense? Why should the blame be on you and our religion if I AM the one who committed that crime? If responsibility lies completely with them. Then why, tell me, do muslims and Islam get blamed.

I know its a heinous act. But if it is so much, then why don't they be on guard and do something about it? Also, I know its heinous so thats why its a sin and the man will be punished by god..But the girl will only get a tiny portion of the blame in which I've given an example.

A highly good reason, is say your married to this girl and she disrespects your mother and purposely hurts your mother. If you tell her to stop and apologize and she doesn't then yea you can slap her. By hitting a girl I don't mean beating her up. I mean by slapping her. And yes also, in Islam it is cowardly to hit a girl and it is something thats disliked by god. Because men seem to be more stronger and more capable of inflicting damage upon the girl than the girl can to him.
