Quoting Red Bottom:" Ones a sex crime. One is morally more ridiculous but little damage was done to the victim. Also assume that the news did a horrendous job reporting what REALLY happened."
I dont know which is more damaging honestly. IMO, having a child slapped on a plane and called a horrible name would stick with me a lot longer than knowing my child saw boobs, which can be pretty much anywhere. TV, public, etc.
You're right about the news though. They do have passengers backing up the story, but the news always has a way of twisting things or leaving out important details.
