The rational is all too common all over the world.
The woman enticed him. It was her own fault. She wore the wrong thing, was in the wrong place, said the wrong thing, was alone, she looked at him, he knew she wanted it, or other mentality. Even though it is not voiced aloud very often here in the US, it is still thought. The woman must justify her "goodness and innocence".
Thank goodness that we are progressing. I hope that it will not be long before we all (all the world) will progress.
I find it degrading to men as well as women. How? That portrayal seems to make men animalistic with no control over their sexual feelings or actions. This just is not true. (IMHO)
