You know every day I wake up and think to myself that today will be different. That today, I won’t wake up to as many cases of rape of women as yesterday, but every day I’m proved wrong. The number of cases is increasing and the age of the accuser is decreasing. Yep, minor boys are raping women and the humanity in them is dying with every passing minute. Don’t believe me?
