NYT epic fail...

This article in the New York Times about the brutal gang-raping of an 1l year old girl is everything that is wrong with how we view rape. Here's a paragraph describing an 11 year old victim of gang-rape:
Residents in the neighborhood where the abandoned trailer stands — known as the Quarters — said the victim had been visiting various friends there for months. They said 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, some said.

“Where was her mother? What was her mother thinking?” said Ms. Harrison, one of a handful of neighbors who would speak on the record. “How can you have an 11-year-old child missing down in the Quarters?”
