I’ve just been reading this article about Max Clifford’s systematic grooming and sexual assault of young girls. It talks about how we discuss the sexual assault of women and girls in vague terms such as, well, grooming and sexual assault rather than describing in their true, shocking ugliness. It made me think about Very Bad Things. I’ve never gone into it in detail on here because I’m aware this is a public space and that anything you put on the internet can be seen by others. But it made me despise myself for the insipid term I chose to use. I’m not willing to talk about it on here but I’m thinking about it and it hurts.
