    She is using the language to show the mindset of the men in the story, how they see developed young girls as nothing more than sexual objects--tits. The men focus on that to the exclusion of all else. Breasts implies a certain respect--an antiseptic view of human biology--that the men surely were not displaying with their actions.

    The fact that you make a distinction between those words highlights what separates most of us from men like the perpetrator and the judge. We don't reduce females down to nothing more tham their secondary sex characteristics.
