    The article about the Texas Gang Rape says, “While the girl may be seen smiling and even laughing on some videos, Warren told jurors that she had been “duped, tricked and talked into doing things against her best interest.”

    She was ELEVEN. It doesn’t matter how she appears to be acting. It shouldn’t have even been mentioned.

    Regarding the article on the Cleveland, TX, gang rape: why does the media persist in calling rape “sex”? They say the girl was raped, but they keep saying things about engaging in oral sex or anal sex. Rape is not sex. Rape is rape.
