When Is a 14-Year-Old Girl a 'Woman'?

It's sad when political correctness confuses the language. So why not just refer to her as a "Homo sapiens bearing only X chromosomes". That ought to do the trick...

I think you may have missed the point of the article? That the US (and the culpable media) were trying to make the heinous slightly less bad by disguising the true age of the rape victim? Not that raping/murdering a 20 year old is OKAY, but that raping and murdering a child is really REALLY vile.

Or are you being ironic?

I was trying to contort the language. Raping/murdering a person - regardless of age or gender - is heinous.

Sorry for the confusion...
