i wouldn't pick up my dogs shit with this article
commented on How to Defeat a Pit Bull with Your Bare Hands
Wow. I only come to the Stranger to read Dan Savage's blog and today I realized why. This article is disgusting. To use "pit bull" in the title is a blatant attempt to get attention and perpetuates the stereotypes of this breed.
Everyone knows the stereotypes about pit bulls. Why not write an article with the FACTS that dispel some of these myths? That way you could still have pit bull in the title, you could still have controversy in the discussion board, and you could have an actual piece of reliable journalism on your hands instead of some bullshit drivel that references one wholly inaccurate and sensationalist website.
By the way, the author's "reaction" was pure masturbatory bullshit. You sir, should be ashamed to call yourself a writer or, god forbid, journalist. Do some fucking research.
