1. Well, at this point in the USA, both have become routine

So the media focuses on the one that brings in the most viewers.

3. K&R

People are titillated by the sexual subject matter and are easily diverted from hard core reality to fantasies, speculation and neurosis.

That's a Trump tactic, diversion, appeal to a lower nature.

4. It isn't sex, it is assault.

And it is important to discuss. Too many have been silenced for far too long... I am glad to see that their stories are getting this exposure. It is about damned time!

8. America seems to have an insatiable obsession with sexual topics...

(As always, just one woman’s opinion)
whether based on religious bred “guilt, shame and control dogma” or a very unhealthy worship or enabling by way too many for the assumed power of the penis.

Sexual aggression or forced entitlement is an abhorrent act. Regardless of age or gender. With adults “No” should always be respected. Conciousness IS a requirement. And point blank respect for another’s wishes/choices should always be THE determining factor.
Regarding children, NEVER, for any reason, EVER. EVER.

Character and accountability are the unwritten rules of decency. American culture can too readily look the other way or place instant blame in alarming numbers when the topic of sexual behavior is mentioned, obliterating both in the process. A societal bipolar disorder most certainly.

In this country sexual behavior is the easiest of diversions and a most effective weapon. It’s also one of the biggest problems. We use sex to sell everything, but buy disrespect, abuse and appalling entitlement in the deal.

And why is it an ‘openly-hidden’ problem?Embarrassment? Guilt? Puritanical history? Shame? Fear? Ignorance? Weakness? Hypocrisy? Tool of control?
Most likely all.

And The Media embraces our obsessions.

9. Whatever it takes to cover up the billionaire's 1.5 TRILLION dollar US Treasury heist in progress.

But don't worry my friends, they will loan it back to us with interest!

10. Well it's sexier so it sells

Plus you have to factor in the Retrumplican voters that are following the story in the hopes of getting pictures of the 14 year old to masturbate to.

Hey, don't blame me. You know I'm right
