“She is a beauty pageant contestant and there’s a lot of provocative, you know, seductive pictures of her that she has put out of herself,” he said. “I believe that if she was at home, and if she had kept to her Orthodox Jewishness, that rape would really probably would not have happened.”
To make matters worse, at a protest, Saxton paraded a banner of which read, “You Deserve Rape.” Saxton screamed, “give up your immodest clothing” and “yoga pants are sin.”
“One street preacher said, you know, if you dress like it, you act like it, different things like that, you’re asking for it,” he opined to Vice. “Therefore, you deserve rape. And his last three words I felt like were nice, and I decided to put them on a sign, and go to the event.”
“I believe there are certain qualities that may be worthy of rape,” the street preacher added. “If a woman dresses proactively, gets blackout drunk, and is wearing really revealing clothing, then I would say that she is partially responsible for the rape.”
I am a Christian but if he said that to my daughter, I would knock his head off, or at least think about it. Reason being, we are supposed to protect children not tell rape victims it is their fault. If a woman is walking down the street naked, you still do not have the right to rape her. Treat women the way you want your daughter treated, and you will be fine. Being raped is not the fault of the victim and it is absurd to rationalize or to justify the actions of a rapist.
