Man Sentenced To 25 Years After Impregnating 9-Year-Old Girl - Charlotte News Story - WSOC Charlotte
i believe the word that's really appropriate here is RAPE.
but check this out:
"The judge gave him five years less than the maximum because he admitted to the crime and apologized to the girl's family."
what crime? he apologized for raping a 9 year old? or impregnating her? cuz, you know. that makes it better.
he RAPED a 9 yr. old girl repeatedly for 2 years.
why can't we call it what it is?
why are we so unwilling to see rape as the violent assault that it is?
it's not 'having sex with.'
it's not 'impregnating'.
there's a chicago campaign, sponsored by the Chicago Foundation for Women, that asks what it will take to stop violence against women and girls. it'll take men like this not raping 9 year old girls.
it's the last week of Sexual Assault Awareness Month and what a completely appropriate article to end the month with.
