Girl allegedly raped, murdered and dismembered by family members on her 10th birthday

The story below, if true, is just horrific.  It also demonstrates that gender is no barrier to horrific and just evil acts.  In this case 2 women and 1 man appear to be involved and the one is her mother:

A mother, a boyfriend and a third person have been arrested in Albuquerque, N.M., after police discovered the burned, dismembered corpse of a 10-year-old girl who was drugged, raped, stabbed, strangled and killed hours before her birthday party…..

According to KOAT, police said Martens and Gonzales confessed Wednesday to injecting the girl with meth “to make her calm down so they could do what they wanted with the little girl.”  (full article here)

Female sex offenders are no different than male sex offenders in that each case, each offender is unique unto themselves.  I am sure that this poor little girl suffered neglect and abuse prior to this incident.

New study finds that women rape men nearly equally to how often they’re victimized by them.

There is a new study from UCLA that has some interesting results.  The study is:

Stemple, L., & Meyer, I. H. (2014). The sexual victimization of men in america: New data challenge old assumptions. American Journal of Public Health, E1-E8. doi:10.2105/AJPH.2014.301946.

In an article discussing this study it is stated that this study should be used ” to facilitate better societal understanding” and “When that happens, victims of either gender will feel more empowered to seek help and shed the burden of shame they shouldn’t be feeling in the first place.”  I could not agree more.

Here are a few quotes:

Her journey to this remarkable discovery that could change how we talk about sexual assault in America began with combing over a recent National Crime Victimization Survey from the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS).

In it, she noticed that 38 percent of sexual assault cases in a survey of more than 40,000 households involved men as the victims. In previous years, the stats were between five and 14 percent, indicating that the crime is grossly underreported.

When that happens, victims of either gender will feel more empowered to seek help and shed the burden of shame they shouldn’t be feeling in the first place.

When the term “being made to penetrate” is included as part of the general definition of rape, it turns out that women rape men nearly equally to how often they’re victimized by them.

“This definition includes victims who were forced to penetrate someone else with their own body parts, either by physical force or coercion, or when the victim was drunk or high or otherwise unable to consent,” Rosin explains.

We have said for years that we need to get away from gender stereotypes and assumptions and look for the truth, whatever that truth might be.  With no one ever thinking to even look for this problem it has always been assumed there was no problem.  More and more research is showing how wrong this is.  Female sex offenders are much more common than anyone once thought.

If we ever want to make more progress than we already have with abuse. all types, we need to move towards an understanding that abuse is abuse and all types can be equally harmful.  We need to be open and willing to help anyone who has been abused regardless of their gender.

For those who are curious here is the abstract from the study:

We assessed 12-month prevalence and incidence data on sexual victimization in 5 federal surveys that the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted independently in 2010 through 2012. We used these data to examine the prevailing assumption that men rarely experience sexual victimization. We concluded that federal surveys detect a high prevalence of sexual victimization among men—in many circumstances similar to the prevalence found among women. We identified factors that perpetuate misperceptions about men’s sexual victimization: reliance on traditional gender stereotypes, outdated and inconsistent definitions, and methodological sampling biases that exclude inmates. We recommend changes that move beyond regressive gender assumptions, which can harm both women and men.

Sexual abuse and torture of a child

The National Post has a story in it that is just so terribly sad.  A story of abuse, torture, long term neglect, and almost every other thing you can think of that could be harmful for a child.  There is way too much to try to go into here so here are a few pieces of the article:

But the underlying cause of Jeffrey’s death was chronic and prolonged starvation; it is that which speaks most poignantly to the years of cruelty and deprivation the once-chubby little boy endured.

Well, for that psychological assessment, she wore a T-shirt that read “Sex Instructor” on the front, which was startling, the report said, “because some of her impugned behaviour related to sexuality in front of the children, as well as the sexualization of the children themselves.”

You can and should read the full article here.  It is an extremely troubling story for many different reasons.  Not just because it is about a female sex offender but because it goes into all types of abuse, torture, and finally a child’s death which all were preventable.  Read the related stories as well for a much better picture.
