What I find really interesting about this is that if a woman gets herself in a bad situation - say maybe she drinks too much at a party and gets raped - she is accused of putting herself in that position and is entirely blamed for her own misfortune. We are told as women that we must alter our behavior to avoid such situations or suffer the consequences.

If a man puts himself in a bad situation - say hiring a stipper at a drunken party, and the stripper accuses him of rape we say it is all her fault and the man is a victim.

How about changing the culture so that a man who puts himself in a compromising position and suffers a bad outcome has to take the blame for it? Fair's fair.
