An astute scholar at some school in Nashville has alerted us to the fact that properly speaking Nanking, in China, was not actually raped by the Japanese. Though technically speaking there was "penetration" of the country...there is no evidence that any of the soldiers actually came "into" the country...but rather marched "on" the surface of it.
Therefore we are downgrading the famous but misnamed, Rape Of Nanking, to a Molestation.
The "Charge" of Light Brigade will similarily be reclassified as a "Romp". Though the British soldiers involved were killed to a man...they started out intending to enjoy wiping out the other side...Imagine their surprise...so let's call it what is was supposed to be.
