Arte Sana’s position statement: Sexual victimization & political agendas
The Exploitation of Sexual Victimization for Political Agendas
Arte Sana, Alianza Latina en contra la Agresión Sexual (ALAS: national Latina victim advocate alliance against sexual violence) members and allies* decry the recent horrific news that a group of young men raped a California student while bystanders did nothing.
- Assume that this sexual assault may be part of a “gang initiation” because Latino perpetrators were identified.
- Offer as a possible ‘defense’ the possibility that the victim may have been ‘a willing participant’ in the possible ‘gang initiation’.
- That this may be a ‘Mexican-on-white’ crime.
- That this is yet another component of a ‘broken borders’ crime wave.
