It's the woman's fault, obviously!

This extremely disturbing article explains the issues women face in India (specifically, rapes on buses). It reminds me of the message I hear every morning "A crowded subway is no excuse for unlawful conduct". In India, a slight smile or glance is apparently every excuse for rape. It makes me think of may religious groups who require women to dress modestly, so as not to attract male attention. What the hell? Is it the responsibility of the woman to protect men or, is it the responsibility of the man to control himself? I mean, come on.
