Doesn't that sound very academic and studied? I'm chiming in to Suzie's earlier post.
Imagine that there was a gruesome murder story about cannibalism, about someone who kept the victims in a cave until ready to be eaten. Would the headline about it be something like:
Austria searches soul after gourmet meal dungeon
Yet this is an actual headline about the Austrian rape-incest case:
Austria searches soul in sex dungeon aftermath
And do check out this post by Shakespeare's sister, on the trivialization of issues having to do with violence against women.
