A retiring judge has said women are entitled to "drink themselves into the ground" but must be aware of potential rapists.
In an impassioned sign-off, Lindsey Kushner QC warned girls' "disinhibited behaviour" put them in danger of being raped by men who "gravitate" towards drunken females.
She spoke out as she jailed a man for six years after he raped a drunken girl he and a friend met in a Burger King Restaurant in Manchester city centre on July 23 last year.
The 64-year-old, who has sat as a senior circuit judge since 2002, said judges have often been criticised for putting emphasis on "what girls should and shouldn't do".
But she said it would be "remiss" of her if she didn't mention one or two things.

"We judges who see one sexual offence trial after another, have often been criticised for suggesting and putting more emphasis on what girls should and shouldn't do than on the act and the blame to be apportioned to rapists," she said.
"There is absolutely no excuse and a woman can do with her body what she wants and a man will have to adjust his behaviour accordingly. But as a woman judge I think it would be remiss of me if I didn't mention one or two things.
"I don't think it's wrong for a judge to beg woman to take actions to protect themselves. That must not put responsibility on them rather than the perpetrator.
"How I see it is burglars are out there and nobody says burglars are OK but we do say 'please don't leave your back door open at night, take steps to protect yourselves'," she said.
"Girls are perfectly entitled to drink themselves into the ground but should be aware people who are potential defendants to rape, gravitate towards girls who have been drinking. It should not be like that but it does happen and we see it time and time again."
She said men do it because "a girl who is drunk is more likely to agree as they are more disinhibited" and are "less likely to fight a man with evil intentions off". She also said women were less likely to report it if they were drunk because they sometimes cannot remember exactly what happens.
She added: "They are entitled to do what they like but please be aware there are men out there who gravitate towards a woman who might be more vulnerable than others. That's my final line, in my final criminal trial, and my final sentence."
Manchester Crown Court heard factory worker Ricardo Rodrigues-Gomes, 19, and a work colleague took in turns to have sex with the 18-year old victim on a canal bank in a squalid attack filmed by chance by an eye witness on a camera phone.
The girl, who had been drinking lager and vodka as well as inhaling the party drug amyl nitrite, could be heard groaning in the footage and was heard saying: "No, stop. I don't want to do it. I don't like this, it's not fair."
The witness filmed the rape from his flat after being woken up by the woman's pleas and looked out of his bedroom window. He broke off from the recording to call police.
Gomes carried on having sex with her after Machado had finished but fled as sirens approached. He was arrested further down the canal.

In a statement read to the court, the victim said: "I feel as though I have lost an entire year of my life and as a result of what happened I did not feel strong enough to commence the term at University.
"I feel I no longer have any confidence and I am worried to leave the house alone particularly at night time... Since this incident I have only felt strong enough to go out a handful of times and when I was out I didn't enjoy it as much as I always used to.
"I have lost friends due to some of them not understanding the difficulties I am going through. My current boyfriend helps me to cope on a daily basis and now spend most of the time at his house as I feel if I remain at home I will only dwell on what has happened."
Gomes, from Gorton, Manchester was convicted of rape whilst Machado, of Moston was cleared after a trial. Both men who hail from Portugal denied wrongdoing saying the girl had "propositioned them" in Burger King.
Ahmed Nadim, defending, said: "The victim voluntarily is in a location and is engaging in a consensual sexual act with another and this defendant in effect takes advantage of that situation. He was acting under misguided belief because of the situation as a whole."
Judge Kusher who was educated at Manchester High School for Girls and Liverpool University qualified as a barrister in 1974 and became a Recorder in 1993 before being appointed a senior circuit judge in 2002. She lists her interests as cooking and cinema.
