Could it be a case of self-indulgent?

A guitl complex?

Camping is an innocent form of recreation.

Its returning more to our roots.  People need this - get out of the cities and go to the countryside and become one with nature.

We need this.  No matter how civilized and how far we try to distance ourselves from nature, we cannot escape that we are a 'part' of nature instead of a part from nature.

Camping is therapy for the soul.

That is dangerous thinking.

It takes the focus off the one responsible for committing the rape. ...

Yes and no.

An analogy.

I have a real nice wrist candy watch. I am known to slip it into my pocket if I stray into dodgy areas. You'd have to kill me to snatch my property and since I prefer to not be in that situation, easier to pocket my watch. Both attackers and myself are prevented from ourselves.

I understand the guy wanting my watch.. the thieving scum, but I worked for it. I don't blame or hate him.

I have seen girls completely wasted in bars/clubs and I see guys licking their chops! Personally? I don't even tajk to a drunk woman. We don't make the rules......deviants/criminals do.


No, I live above Sunset Plaza, it's a little house I rent and it's a little rundown but has a beautiful view, what about you?

I'm not giving up camping.

And I never asked you to. It is just something I'm never doing. I love hotels:) You will see that I did not say people should not camp. Not a phillstine.

Backpacking, camping, I hate undue hardship! Sod it, life is short

Yes and no.

An analogy.

Everyone should be encouraged to be safe.  I agree.

But blaming the victim for rape has to stop because the damage it does is far greater than what is gained.

It encourages rape when you blame the victim.  It acts as justification in the minds of the rapists.

We cannot feed into this sick psychology that the rapist has.

Besides, the majority of people who are raped, are not drunken whores from seedy neighborhoods wearing miniskirts with no panties.  

We have to keep the focus on the rapist and what we can do to diagnose and discourage rapists.  For them, its not about sex.  Its about power.
