Turner, I love your blog and most of what you write, but goddamn, I wish you would start calling these crimes what they are--Rape! It is not sex. There is no such thing as non-consensual sex. It is rape. You normalize rape culture when you fail to use the correct words, and as a journalist, you should know that and do better. This is how your post about doctor rapist blew up because we, as a society, have for too long not called rape "rape." "Federal grand jury indicts man on rape of girl."Fixed it.
