Maybe you shouldn't have to. But it seems more productive than calling names and making them defensive. Someone seeing a thoughtful response might think, "oh, I didn't realize that" and not give out bad info in the future, or even repeat the better info. Someone being dismissed as an asshole likely won't. Seems like this and many other serious issues need more allies for a change in the way society thinks. But whatever. Carry on. I'll stop before I'm an asshole, too.

@11, @12: That first link also includes attempted rape. And I would presume that the same goes for the second, though they don't define it. Not that either number is okay, of course. I only wade in because you called the other poster an asshole, but the number he/she quotes might well be a legitimate number for reported rapes (though I'm not sure) whereas the 1/5 includes attempted rape and also attempts to extrapolate unreported rape, since that is a huge issue. I guess I'm just saying that being a jerk to someone who might be misinformed but seems to not have ill will was a lost opportunity to educate.

It'd be cool if this told us when it starts.

@33: I completely understand "boy" and "thug" and words like that being racially charged at the very least. I've never before heard that about "class." Is is a new thing? I'm not opposed to learning, but to assume this is a thing most people should know I don't think is fair.

Ansel, in your TImes-hating haste to create controversy where none exists, you apparently didn't even read the column. He didn't say the announcement wasn't classy, as your headline and tweet say. In fact, he called it perfect for him. He said the timing of it wasn't classy, because it was self-serving. That's his opinion. I don't agree with it, either. But big deal. How that translates to racism, I'm not sure. But at least give the Times shit for things they do. Don't misrepresent what they write and then be outraged about it.

They're different dogs, Charles. You're really not this dense, right?

If that woman is 31, then the term "tramp stamp" absolutely was widely known when she was 16.

This was cool when the Times did it (better) a few months back.
