Rape - Not Sexual Assault
by Susan Jane Smith
When the word rape is said a chill probably goes through every woman due to the horror that it is. By identifying some sexual abuse as assault it may be technically more accurate, but it loses the impact of the word rape. When that impact is lost, in my opinion, the terror is watered down and it let's society think it is not as dastardly a deed. Whatever you call it there is a life ruined.
