There have been 10 unsolved sexual attacks on women in Brooklyn, New York, since March. In response, NY cops have increased their patrols in the area. But that's not all the cops are doing—they're also criticizing women on the street for their allegedly rape-friendly attire.

Via the Wall Street Journal:

Lauren, a South Slope resident, was walking home three blocks from the gym on Monday when she was stopped.The 25-year-old, who did not want her last name to be used, was wearing shorts and a T-shirt when she claims a police officer asked if she would stop and talk to him. He also stopped two other women wearing dresses.

..."He pointed at my outfit and said, 'Don't you think your shorts are a little short?'" she recalled. "He pointed at their dresses and said they were showing a lot of skin."

He said that such clothing could make the suspect think he had "easy access," said Lauren.

She said the officer explained that "you're exactly the kind of girl this guy is targeting."

It would be swell if life was that simple, wouldn't it? If all the women in the world could agree to stop wearing shorts and, in return, all the men in the world would pledge to stop raping them.
