We as a society teach our female children "don't get raped" yet we seem to fail to teach our male children "don't rape". How did we reach this disconnect and how do we go about addressing it? Often during rape trials we hear people talk about how the victim was "asking for it, just look how she was dressed" and we seem to accept this analysis as valid. It isn't, why do we as a society put the onus for rape on the victim instead of where it truly belongs, on the rapist? Why do we fail to teach our male children that how a woman dresses is not an invitation to do as they please, that they should not rape no matter what excuse they feel they have?

On today's show we are discussing society's views on rape. If you feel you have a question or comment that will add to the discussion please do call in on (646)716-6583 at 4:30 pm EST.
