Blaming women for child sexual abuse perpetrated by a man
DAYCARE WORKER SAYS HE ACCIDENTALLY RAPED 5-YEAR-OLD GIRL DURING ‘TICKLE FIGHT’
"When Moore was questioned, he reportedly told authorities that he did touch the child beneath her underwear, but he claims it was accidental. According to court documents released this week, Moore said that 'when he slipped on a toy as he was tickling … [the fall] caused his hand to slide into her panties and penetrate.'"
So many things about this upset me. First and foremost, of course, is that a child was violated. What is striking to me, however, is the responsibility that is being placed on (or being assumed by) wimmin. We have the female neighbours who talk about fearing for their children. We have the mothers who will not return their children to the daycare. We have the grandmother of the daycare worker, who feels she must apologize to the victim, to the victim's family, and to the community. So, this guy has straight up confessed that he "accidentally" raped this little girl, but the media focus here seems to be on wimmin's ability to protect their children and wimmin's responsibility to not create rapists (and to make amends if they "fail"). Why not a focus on how child predators only get a criminal record if they are CAUGHT? Why not a focus on why a guy would have his hand in a 5 year old's panties? Why not a focus on how men can learn to not sexually assault their fellow humans?Download this post as PDF? Click here
