The "Asking For It" Article in The New York Times

An eleven year old girl was Gang Raped by a total of Eighteen Assailants ranging in age from Middle School age to a Twenty Seven Year Old Man in an abandoned trailer park in a small Texas town.
Do you want to know how I found out about this?
A journalist for a well know newspaper, Sod it all I will Just say it, The New York Times, wrote an article about it.
He interviewed people close to the girl and asked them questions as to her character. and reported statements about the victim such as "Resident's in the neighborhood said she dressed older than her age, wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her twenties."
The reporter also sees fit to remind us, "She would hang out with teenage boys at a playground, some said."

I am all for Freedom of Speech and Freedom of The Press.

BUT..


No Woman , Let alone a an Eleven year old CHILD deserves to be raped simply because of her style of dress or clothing. This article portrays the child in a bad light and Blames the Victim, as if  she were somehow "Asking For It".

No One "Asks For It".
