It's absolutely a women's issue, and I'm glad it was posted.
A "Woman" was severely, disgustingly assualted, and it's definitely an "Issue." And it was in the news.
If this posting causes a woman to be more vigilant, and she decides in whatever way to protect herself better in the future from something similar happening to her (and her son), this post had a greater good than you could imagine.
What a sick crime. We may not like hearing about it, but we as women need to know it's possible. Personally, I couldn't have imagined something more vile. We need to know this exists, not just for ourselves, but also in keeping in mind those wastes our children associate with. The news story said supposedly the kid and mom knew the perpetrators just from living in that neighborhood.
