This week’s column is super short… like rape would be, if you got to choose which kind you got. Getting kids to talk about forced sex was like pulling teeth! Most of the kids I interviewed responded to the question “What is rape?” with silence and angry eyes, even though these were the same kids who were happy to talk in detail about murder or war previously. Almost like they’d be doing something shameful just by admitting its existence. I accepted their un-voiced “no”s, and didn’t push. Too bad unvoiced “no”s don’t work as pedophile repellant, though.
