Is this New York Times article biased against the victim?
On March 8, 2011, the New York Times reported a gang rape of an 11 year old that took place in Cleveland TX.
“It’s just destroyed our community…these boys have to live with this the rest of their lives.”
“Where was her mother? What was her mother thinking?”
”...the victim had been visiting various friends there for months…she dressed older than her age, wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her 20s. She would hang out with teenage boys at a playground…”
Why aren’t the men involved in this crime portrayed as responsible? Why does it seem that recognition of girls acting sexually inappropriate, like dressing older, etc. is often a sign of sexual abuse? How does anyone mistake an 11 year old for someone in their 20’s?
