The argument "if you don't want to be abused, don't dress like that" is similar to "if you don't want to get raped, don't dress for it"- it's a poor excuse and shifts the responsibility of thought and consideration from the person guilty to the subject of abuse. You cannot blame me for dressing appropriately for the weather. You cannot blame any woman and accuse her of INVITING abuse or objectification. As I said, it is the excuse rapists use, "she's asking for it". Think about it. Had i stood up completely i would have received "oh you're just cutting out your head and showing us your body" comments so I will not accept any comments in reference to that.
