Just as you don't teach a tiger to stop devouring steak by continuously waving a bloody t-bone in front of it...
He's not just wrong in comparing men to beasts, he's wrong in his understanding of beasts. Multiple-fold analogy fail.
Because you do in fact train animals to ignore food by putting food in front of them, then giving them an alternate reward when they succeed in ignoring it. Over time, you can balance a steak on a dog's nose if you really have the patience to go that far. Though I'm not sure I want to try and analogize that. :)I think I do, actually. The Vox Days of the world are apparently rape-tigers. No, that's too flattering an image...let's stick with rape-dogs. And the only way they can learn not to eat the tempting steak/rape the scantily dressed woman in front of them is to be desensitized. So the solution, the way to get them to stop, is by repeated exposure to tempting steaks/scantily clad women. The way to reduce sexual attacks, or at least the belief that sexual attacks are provoked, is to have more women dress like "sluts." Which is precisely what the Slut Walkers are encouraging.
So congrats, Vox, you actually stumbled onto a viable hypothesis. It's unfortunate that it happens to be diametrically opposed to what you thought. That's what happens when you switch the responsibility for rape from victims back onto rapists.
Of course, it's not actually true that there's a direct inverse relationship between the amount of clothing women wear in a given society and their personal safety. But it does seem to be the case that in societies where women are free to be more sexually liberated they are also safer, and vice versa. You'd think that would be common sense, wouldn't you?
