The title of this article should not read as if two people had consensual sex. He MOLESTED, ASSAULTED, or RAPED her. This title feeds directly into rape culture, like maybe it wasn't a really big deal that a 31 year old man had repeated sexual contact with a 9 YEAR OLD.

Uuggghhhh I can't believe a woman wrote the title to this article! A child younger than 13 can't possibly consent to "sex" with a 31-YEAR OLD MAN!

The title doesn't read"Grown man and preteen had an amazingly romantic night until they got busted" It say man allegedly had sex with preteen. The Author can't "slander" the defendant. It would b unprofessional because of the way our laws r set. Ppl r innocent til proven guilty.

Remember the word "allegedly". Doesn't mean that he did it. Let the courts do their job!
