Only The Beginning

America, 2018: a doctor rapes over 150 girls for nearly 20 years and finally gets justice far, far too late:
"Seven minutes into her testimony last Tuesday, delivered alongside her mother, Kyle looked up at Judge Rosemarie Aquilina and politely asked if she could address Nassar directly.
She reminded him of how her parents invited him round to their home after she had accused him. Sitting in her living room, he had denied abusing her and had said that if she was ever really abused, she should remember to report it.
'Well Larry, I'm here,' she told him in court. 'Not to tell someone, but to tell everyone.
'Perhaps you have figured it out by now, but little girls don't stay little forever. They grow into strong women who return to destroy your world."
The president of Michigan State has resigned.

While no amount of money can ever really cure the damage done, here's hoping MSU gets sued into oblivion.

As I snarked on twitter previously, we can start worrying about "witch hunts" against men once we've created a society where teenage girls can go to a doctor without the fear of being fingered and abused, then literally told to shut up about it.
