what do you guys think?
I got this post off of another confession site and I want to know what people on this site think of this woman's position. On that other site, this poster was bashed heavily. But I can see alot of sense in what she is saying. It's not the most politially correct position, but it is the position of a good mother, in my opinion:
in my community, there is a 13-year-old girl who, last month, was kidnapped and gang-raped by 4 men. she survived the attack but the police have not been able to track the men down. but this girl has been somewhat shunned by the community. we don't want her playing with our children because we don't want her telling our children about her rape and we don't want her acting out toward our children because of her post-traumatic stress disorder or whatever other behavioral problems she may have as a result of her rape. we don't mean to abandon this girl but we have to do whats best for our children and whats best for our children is not being around a rape victim. her parents and police have asked us to help them with the investigation by telling them if we saw any strange men in the neighborhood around the time the girl was abducted, but none of us wants to get involved for fear that, whoever these men are, they might retaliate against whoever cooperates with the police. we do feel bad for her but there is really nothing any of us can do for her. all we can do is protect our own children and that we will do without any guilty feelings, whatsoever. all i can say about this girl is that she should have been more aware of her surroundings and who was walking near her (she was abducted while walking home from school). i don't mean to sound cold or anything but i believe that the only place for rape victims is around other rape victims because they can all understand each others strange post-rape behavior. this little girl needs to find some new friends.
