Penn State Disgust

So the question that has been lingering in my head for a few days now is making me crazy. I’ll share it here even if it is only a half-baked thought. What if the victims in the Penn State situation had been girls? Would the grad student who witnessed the act in the shower not spoken up? Would there be any doubt about the firing of those who did nothing as evidence of these acts had come to light? Would people have stood rather idly by if there was knowledge of a man being a serially rapist to 10 and 11 year old girls?

Does the fact that the victims are boys increase the perverse nature of the horrific situation…and therefore make people mute? I pray that I would not be unable to respond…I pray that others would not stand idly by and struck silent if such an atrocity was happening to my daughter or any child.

Protect the children.
