Before you blame a girl for dressing to attract the attention of men or boys, consider the fact that the first sexual experience for many girls and women is rape - a violation of who they are. They never get to define themselves in such a defining moment. Someone else defines that and by extension them. Many don't recover. And so the dice is cast: they consistently define who they are in relation to the men and boys they encounter. Usually that or they never actually had a healthy father-daughter relationship - daddy issues are real.

Vicious cycle ain't it? So guess what - we are all to blame. The question to ask her is why do you feel the need to dress like this? In many cases it's about fitting in, finding herself, shaping her identity, acceptance. In very few cases will it be to attract a boy to her - unless, again, her understanding of male and female relationships is rooted primarily in sex and sexuality. In which case, refer to paragraph one.

Rape and assault is never as simple as the clothes one wears.
