    If I walk through the ghetto carrying a wad of cash in my hand in the open and someone beats me and steals it, is it my fault? NO. But doesn't mean I couldn't have thought about what I was doing a little more.

    You are blowing this so out of context. I took it as there are ways women can prevent this from happening. He didn't say it's their fault when it does happen. What exactly did he say that isn't true?

    If a woman goes out to a bar wearing a short skirt and gets raped, is it her fault? NO, but doesn't mean she wasn't asking for it. Am I right, Craig?

    did you read what he wrote? he said he tells the members of his family. He never said this female deserved what she got. He says no female deserves that. All he is saying is be smart with you situation you put yourself in. Maybe not the best time to make this statement, granted.

    A lot of things. There could have been a lot leading up to that. Doubt he just senselessly beat her. Again, doesn't mean this is something she deserved.

    Re: ESPN FIGHT!

    If a woman hits me, I will try to stop her. If she keeps hitting me, I should be able to hit back to make her stop. The courts would never agree to that of course but that's how it should be.

    Stephen A wasn't referring to this scenario specifically. All I got out of it was don't talk **** and you more than likely won't get hit. Doesn't work all the time, and I agree that most of the time the opposing party doesn't deserve to get hit (a woman should never be hit by a man), but to jump (not saying you did) on someone for saying not to provoke someone into hitting you is a little extreme.

    You're not interpreting his words correctly. If a girls being abused by her boyfriend but comtinues to stay with the guy is she not partly to blame for not getting out of that situation? The guy is 100% wrong but at the same time the girl could do a better job of not putting herself in that same situation again. Same goes for the girl that walks around with practically nothing on but complains about guys checking her out.. Put some damn clothes on if you don't like it.

    Unfortunately, as proven in this thread, there are still a lot of men who have really thick skulls and really small brains.
