UK lawmaker: short skirts, high heels risk rape

... "If you are blind drunk and wearing those clothes how able are you to get away?" Conservative Party lawmaker Richard Graham, of Gloucester, was quoted as saying by his local newspaper, The Citizen.

Anti-rape activists said Graham's comments smacked of blaming rape victims for having been assaulted.

But Graham said in a blog post Saturday that his interview "in no way intimates ANY excuse for predatory behavior."

In further comments to The Citizen, Graham said, "Risk management is a million miles from saying anything like `she was asking for it.'"...

3. The only thing high heels are a risk for is varicose veins and broken ankles.

4. These assholes act as if women never even think of risk management

We live, breath and are slaves to risk management every day of our lives. Even at 64 I carry my car keys in my hand ready to take a man's eyes out and I have things dangling from the key ring so everyone can see how I'm holding the keys. When it's dark, which it is during the Winter months, even here in the Bay Area, I also carry my folded umbrella, ready to use it like a baseball bat to fight back.

And that's just so I don't get mugged.
