Lara Logan: Sexual Assault Wasn’t Enough - Page 2
When a person has been sexually assaulted, they tend to react in certain ways. Most will become depressed, anxious and withdrawn. A few that have been assaulted will also suffer anxiety attacks. Any type of stress, such as a person who looks like the person who assaulted walking towards the victim, will trigger an anxiety attack.
Rape or sexual assault is a crime. It is something that is done to innocent human beings. Because a person looks a certain way or has a certain job does not mean that they asked to be assaulted or raped. It is not a crime that should give others the right to say the victim asked to be abused.
Lara Logan was just as innocent as any other person who is attacked, brutally beaten and viciously raped. She was performing a job that she is highly trained to do and does very well.
In this day and age, with history being made, maybe it is time we accept rape for what it is. Rape is a crime just as a stabbing, a homicide or a theft. Let's begin thinking of it as such.
