I appreciate your acknowledgments that not everything was well thought of in your previous comment. But you still reason as a Millennial. In particular, your strong language cannot offend me, but as I wrote to you, it proves that you have strong emotions but weak arguments.
You are correct, sexual assault is not sex; it is a sexual crime. And it always has big audience in media.
Dealing with trauma in private is the right thing to do. I do not have a daughter, but if I had one, I do not want her to walk with the stamp on her forehead: I was raped, I had been molested, or sexually assaulted. This should be handled within, as narrow as possible, a close circle of family, friends and a therapist if needed. It does not mean that the perpetrators should not be punished. It does not mean that the victims should not get all the help they need.
