Sorry Cannuck, you are correct I may have misintepreted your statements and drawn the wrong conclusion, my bad.
If you understand it is an irrelavant issue why do you want/need stats? It is irrelavent and so therefore any stats would be irrelavant also.
I highly doubt there are any stats collected
I take it science was not one of your strong subjects in school?
How do you know that without collecting the data first? Why does the data scare you? If, hypothetically, there was 10% increase in the risk of assault if your daughter wore shorts to a night club, wouldn't you want her to be aware of that stat? Don't you care enough about your daughter to give her all the help you possibly can?
I do not have a duaghter, 2 sons instead, but I do have a young niece whom I try to teach the importance of being ladylike and how it can affect others opinions of her, she has a horrible habit of sitting like a football player while wearing a skirt. Of course I care about her and every other female and try to guide her as best as I can. Unfortunately once she becomes an adult she can do as she pleases. I would think the better solution is to teach the boys that no means no and that the way a woman dresses or conducts herslef is never an invitation to sex or sexual assault in any way shape or form.
Cart before the horse. To my knowledge there has never been any data collected so it would be too soon to decide on what is or isn't relevant. A good scientist wouldn't come to a conclusion before he has analyzed the data. I take it science was not one of your strong subjects in school?
The law has already determined dress is not relavant to sexual assualt.
Can you see the point here?
It's a solution. Is it a better solution to rely on your ability to raise your kid than to give my daughter good advice if you haven't. I don't think so. That's the same stuff Gerry talk. Given how he behaves here, I wouldn't want my daughters within a mile of his sons.
I am expressing how collecting such stats would then affect the legality of making dress an issue that may become defensible in a court.
Because I can....
Any study saying a woman is 10% or any% more likely to be assaulted because of the way she dresses then becomes a defense.
You can have all the freedoms you want Bear as long as it doesn't cause others any harm.
You have the freedom to be wrong and a troll all day long.
Really? So any study that shows that you are more likely to be mugged in New York City is a defense for muggers in NYC.....seriously?
Why does it have to be legally relevant? The purpose of the study would be to see if there are things women can do to protect themselves. We have studies about those types of things all the times. We had smoking studies that told us not to smoke. If a study determined an increased risk for having a G-sting poking out the top of your pants, I fail to see the harm in that.
