    I have trouble believing those figures. 1 in 3 girls? 1 in 4 boys?? "Molested"?

    MMmmmmmm Nah... I just can't buy that, unless we're talking about some unreasonably broad definition of "molested". Seems highly improbable.

    It may be inflammatory, but it's the ****ing truth. The victim was victimized again by the residents.

    Re: 14 men charged in sex assaults of Texas girl


    Dan's outrage is misplaced.

    The case shined a sometimes unflattering spotlight on Cleveland after some in the town of about 9,000 residents suggested the girl was culpable in part for what happened, claiming she wore makeup and looked older. Some also accused her parents, immigrants from Mexico, of not watching her more closely. Those suggestions were sharply criticized by many Cleveland residents and by community and religious groups outside the city.
    Also complicating the case was a belief by many in the predominantly black neighborhood where several of the suspects live that the arrests were racially motivated. All of the suspects are black, while the girl is Hispanic.
    The girl, now 12, remains in foster care as her parents, who have health problems and moved out of Cleveland after receiving threatening phone calls, work with state child welfare authorities to get her back.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    She can't "consent" at age 11 even if she wanted to..,

    This quote is beyond the pale...

    Same for my daughter. I was right behind her. No conversation, just a drunk young male stunned by her beauty. They locked eyes for what felt like a very long time, and finally I came to my senses and said "DUDE. She's NINE." She giggled, and we went around him.

    Molested. Bad touch. And yes - it was 1 in 4 for females for the past many, many years, so I can see how it might be 1 in 3 now.

    Molestation is being touched with out penetration. Its still physiologically damaging.

Word got around... girl that has sex... I bet she is one messed up kid. I can see the "I didn't know" defense POSSIBLY for a 15, 16, YO, but 11?? NO WAY!! Disgusting. Those people knew she was a kid.
    There are girl of 11 who look 18. They are typically chunky, and thus have developed way faster than they other wise would, especially with the food additives we have now. One of my friends when I was a kid was suckered by a 12 year old who claimed she was 17 (he was 15) into dating for 2 weeks. Yes, they did things.

    My daughter was a DD at age 11. We used to joke that it was because we lived downriver from the power plant.

    Nah, that's probably not true in the U.S., but I can believe those to be global statistics pretty easily. When you got places like Bosnia and Thailand...
