The final frontier of denial, "asking for it" is a mentality people use to justify the world being less horrible than it is. Most commonly it is used to pretend that a rape victim 'subliminally' or 'subtly' gave consent, but it can also be used in context to say someone who leaves a quarter on the ground is just as guilty as the thief who steals it of the crime, having 'tempted' the criminal or perpetrator. In extremist cases, such as a few sects of Muslim religion, some women are forced to cover their hair to prevent 'tempting' men.

Pertaining to sex, it is statistically estimated that about 1/3 men buy in Britain conform to the "asking for it" mentality.
