that poor young woman in Florida on Spring Break who was drugged, raped, and killed. My god. And what's worse, enough people saw it to be able to say she was "visibly impaired" when going into a hotel with two men. Why did no one intervene, call the police, do something? I cannot imagine the pain of her parents. How do you protect DDs from such a fate? It's unthinkable.
Updated to say that although this woman is weighing so, so heavily on my mind, I'm also conscious of the fact that this happens to men/boys, too -- just usually with theft as the outcome, not death (didn't Cardi B say she used to drug and steal from men)? We need to figure out how all our DCs -- boys and girls -- can stay out of compromising situations. I don't know the answers, but my heart literally hurts over the questions.
