For those who are unaware, last Sunday (see the story here: 7 Year Old Gang Raped ), a 7 year old girl was sold to several boys for sex by her 15 year old step sister. We at Why O’ Why want to make sure their images are spread across the web. Today, I received an email that indicates 5 of these animals have now been arrested.
Three others (ages 13, 14 and 17) have also been charged but because of their ages their identities are being withheld. We hope they are all charged as adults in this case along with the step sister that sold the 7 year old. This is such an atrocity and heartbreaking for that little girl. We hope justice comes swiftly and severely for all involved. May God have mercy on their souls.
I want to include a bit of commentary… I feel this incident can possibly be directly related to the music and images in rap music we allow our children to hear. I personally feel this is what songs like “It ain’t no fun if the homies can’t have none”, “Tipdrill” along with others have done to our youth. (NOTE: THERE ARE VIDEO GAMES WHICH CAN BE DOWNLOADED ON THE INTERNET THAT DEPICT WOMEN BEING RAPED TOO. Why O Why may address that issue at a later date).
Our young men have come to view women and girls as objects to disrespect and abuse because this hyper masculine attitude has become so pervasive within rap music which spawn from the gansta rap mentality. I blame the parents of these creeps of course, but I also hold this awful music we adults allow our children to hear, responsible too. And I don’t want to only single out our young men because some young women and young girls identify with this music as well. Case in point; this 15 year old girl (the step sister) who had the mindset to sell herself and her 7 year old sister for sex in the first place. Shame on our society for having a hand in creating these monsters. Let us know your thoughts and discuss. Thanks.
