Here is a link to a blurb stating “A survey of 11-to-14 year-olds found:

· 51% of the boys and 41% of the girls said forced sex was acceptable if the boy, “spent a lot of money” on the girl;….” It made me sit very still for a couple of moments and let those words sink in before I went to the link itself. Marmalade Chronofile was the link I read it from, but it was important this information be true than just a blogosphere article without basis. (It’s sad to admit, but we all know of places that have started rumors and at some point we have been caught up in a rumor only to find it [usually] wasn’t true.

The reality of this particular article appears at the University of Illinois Chicago website. Here is the link for the full article. In my opinion boys and girls ages 11-14 shouldn’t know about sex much less think forcing a girl to have sex was OK if, esscentially, he bought her with gifts!


About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.
