Eighteen Men Gang-Rape an Eleven-year-old Girl.

And this article about it in the New York Times:
  • reminds us that the incident "destroyed" the small Texas town in which the crime took place.
  • reminds us that it is tragic that the men will "have to live with this for the rest of their lives."
  • asks the question, "where was her mother?"
  • tells us that the victim wore makeup, dressed "like a woman in her 20s," and hung out with teenage boys on the playground in a bad neighborhood.
Maybe another terrible thing to turn into small talk- how these poor rapists now have to live with with this, and how an eleven-year-old girl was too tempting and deserved it, and how her mother should have been with her 24/7.

Basically, blame men's crimes on women, then feel pity for the consequences men face.

This is mainstream, respected journalism, not some wack-o misogynists in a message board somewhere.
