39. Slightly off-topic here, but....
Why is a 15-year-old beating victim called a "boy", while a 15-year-old rape victim is often called a "woman"?

I don't object to the use of "boy" in this article, but I always object to stories that call teen rape victims "women"--they're girls. :cry:

That said, it's not just Korean evangelicals who think this way...Asians say their parenting style is "strict"...but it's actually abusive and psychotic. (And I say this as someone who loves almost all other aspects of Asian culture.)
