FixedIt – a 38 year old man cannot have a “sexual relationship” with a child under 12

In yet another example of media not understanding what words mean, The Miami Herald describes a 38 year old man accused of raping and abusing a girl under 12 as having a “sexual relationship” with her.

Rape is not sex

Abuse is not a “relationship”.
