On Other Blogs Today by The C Is For Crank

By Erica C. Barnett August 11, 2010

Today, the Seattle Times reports that a 28-year-old man has been charged with "soliciting sex from" a 12-year-old girl. The C is for Crank would like to point out that "sex" between a 28-year-old and a 12-year-old isn't "sex." There's another word for that---one that "objective" newspapers like the Times are too often reluctant to use.
