Is rape a result of fashion or madness?

09 October 2014, 20:30 Jibunor George Chuks

Who keeps the culture and tradition of her people? This has gone far beyond what we witness on a daily bases now. Who gets raped at the age of 17 years and upwards should have his or herself to blame.

Although, most many cases of rape victims are the female gender. Now, let's look at it this way: some parts of the female body are something I could say are very attractive and sensitive: The laps, the buttocks, the tummy. When a young girl who is supposed to dress decently and cover these parts, leaves it as a style of fashion in the midst of a normal human being of the opposite sex who has blood running in their system; they (opposite sex) definitely stands to be tested and tempted. The grace to overcome the urge can only be for those who have self discipline and as well as self control.

How can you wear or wore something that makes you look uncomfortable, exposing the sensitive parts and you call that fashion? Totally disagree with that. You are only inviting trouble for yourself. Many ladies with skinny trousers that show's off their panties; or tinny panties which shows off their buttocks and all this are in the name of fashion; what has fashion got to do by exposing all this sensitive parts to the public? Its a call-up check, earlier we realize that the young generation after us, has been miss-led into this satanic way of life, better will it be for us to know that we are sending many souls to hell than to Heaven. Let the wise hear.
