Twisted Headline

Here’s the headline from CNN:

Why men use masturbation to harass women

Um… no. “Men” do not use masturbation to harass women. A very few, twisted, horrible men do, but the tremendous majority of men do not. The effort to lump all men together because of the abusive behavior of a few celebrities is the kind of sexism that the folks at CNN would decry if it were turned around. Can you imagine a headline like, “Why women rape children”? Of course not. Because while a very few, twisted, horrible women do, the tremendous majority of women do not. And to suggest otherwise is a gross generalization.
