Well, it’s a perhaps. I’m not saying that it’s necessarily so but I’m trying to understand what I perceive as being your perspective a little better.

While I believe there is a gradient of mental healths, some which fall inside the range of acceptable and some that fall outside of the bell curve of what’s considered normal…

…would this apply to other scenarios:

For example: Rape.

An old fashioned view was that women should not dress provocatively because it might incite men to lust and from lust to rape.

In the USA around 1984 I believe, there was a trial that put that to rest and invalidated it as an excuse in the courts systems.

The attitude prevails among some people, but it’s invalid in criminal trials as far as I know.

Are all men rapists? Well, not all rape is by men and not all men are rapists.

A BETTER reason for a girl to not dress provocatively when going to a party is that there is a statistical likelihood that at least ONE of the guy at that party is, for lack of a better word, an undiagnosed rapist.

The other men wouldn’t rape her.

This is what makes the “all are potentially mentally ill” a little difficult.

But please correct me if I’m mistaken. I’m just trying to understand the argument.
