6: I Can Say "Rape" More Times Than You Can

This is a weird one; a story linked from the more lightheartedly obtuse article used for episode 4, I had to follow it up based on the statements made around it's use as a reference. All I've seen after researching this sad story for ten minutes is the repeated use of the words "rape" and "sexual assault," not only with no clarification as to what actually transpired between these two individuals, but a fervent application of the former term when every single one of these journalists is talking specifically about statutory rape.

Instead of saying "statutory rape of one legally considered a minor," they are repeatedly branding the teacher as a "rapist," in all of it's full on, disgusting connotations.

I implore the reader/listener of this to do a google search for "Stacey Dean Rambold," "Cherice Moralez," and "2008," then come back to me with some actual grasp on what happened here that is not prefaced and punctuated by the word "rape."

This is a good jump off point to the idiotic willingness people have to not question one sentence of what they are intellectually imbibing if it happens to appeal to their senses. Read it and the comments below. Notice the complete lack of professionalism when writing about this horrible story: "thanks to his victim, who was totally down for his D when she was alive."

Jezebel and it's "sister sites" are called "Gawker Media" for a reason; their articles are freeway pileups of mangled human bodies that rubberneckers with low attention spans are attracted to because their own lives are depressingly boring by comparison. Theirs should be considered a grain-of-salt "style" of journalism.

It could have just said: "Predictably, there isn't a single mention of this child’s ethnicity, but I will mention it because I don't actually understand what racism is, so I am fine with pointing out this girl's race to emotionally charge my argument.")
