Pain In the Derriere?

Sept. 4, 2006 Note: Readers on both ends of the spectrum seem to have missed our point here. Never was there any intention of making light of the alleged rape victim's situation. The title of this posting refers to the pain of sodomy, and how the mainstream media coverage danced around that issue. It was the SODOMY rape that seems to have put the victim over the edge, to the point where she blew the whistle on her violator. We intended to point out how terribly unnatural sodomy is and the pain that it entails for someone not into sexual perversions. (Why else would your internist apologize before performing a rectal exam?) We were also drawing attention to the fact that the alleged rapist, who would seem to like anal sex, was working with YOUNG BOYS. We have not altered the posting below from its original:

The Boston Globe reports today on the alleged anal rape of a 17-year-old girl and client, by a male staffer at the Baker House, a center for at-risk teens in Dorchester. The staffer was in charge of a program of pre-adolescent boys. The question obviously comes to mind how the staffer related to those boys.

According to the report compiled by the DSS, the girl had earlier agreed to paid sexual encounters with the man, then balked at anal sex. (The implication is that this was a novel request.) She reportedly said no when he wanted to go there, but said he persisted.

On the afternoon of Jan. 5, the girl told prosecutors, she was in the basement playing cards when Patrick gave her "the cue," and she met him upstairs, where he asked her to go to a bathroom. She said he then offered her $40 to have anal sex. The teenager "stated that she told him 'no' several times, but he wasn't listening to her; he covered her mouth and did what he wanted anyway," the report says.

She reported the alleged episode to Baker House managers, including Rivers, who went to her house that night to pray with the girl and her mother and discuss what had happened, according to the DSS report and another document written by Baker House executive director Jeanette Boone. Before Rivers arrived, the girl left for the hospital because she said she felt sick to her stomach and was in "a lot of pain." [emphasis added]

The Globe also reports that the accused " ... had worked at the center for five years, had served time in the early 1990s for armed robbery and assault and battery. He had been in charge of a Baker House program for preadolescent boys." [emphasis added]
