Teen Girls Joining Male Gangs Forced into Group Sex

 Teen Girls Joining Male Gangs Forced into Group Sex A report by UK police and charities has revealed that teenage girls, as young as 13, who join violent male gangs were being forced to having sex, ferrying guns, knives and drugs.

The girls joined gangs to raise their own profile or to seek protection, and when they first join the gang they are told to have sex with one member of the gang- and then find several of the gang waiting for them, The Times reported.

Teresa Pointing, chief executive of In-volve, a charity helping young people drawn into violent situations, said: "These girls have no rights within these gangs, which are primitive in the way they operate."

"The girls think they are going to be protected by the gang if they have sex with one person, but then they find there are more boys there," she added.

However, the most shocking part of the report was that the girls accepted the situation as normal.

The incidents have been growing over the past couple of years, and many with charities are getting girls coming to them with tales of gang rapes.

The girls are also used by the gangs to transport guns, knives and drugs and the police have evidence that girls are taking guns direct to killers and then disposing of the weapons once a crime was committed with it.
