I'm very offended by this title. I knew someone who was raped and it's very inappropriate here.
It's interesting how 'rape' is considered a controversial word in this context, I wondered about this after Alan Pardew used it on MOTD2 to describe Michael Essien taking the ball off someone.

a) it's fair usage by definition (from an act of plunder, violent seizure, or abuse; despoliation; violation: the rape of the countryside.

and b) you never see any complaints about similar use of the word 'murder'.
