    I don’t know if this is a typo or a misunderstanding, but “Toronto police officers” didn’t say anything about how women shouldn’t dress like sluts. One officer, singular, said this. The department spokesperson said that the department is currently investigating.

    “Officers” really makes it sound like this was presented with the approval and sanction of the Toronto PD, while the article makes it clear that is far from the case.

    Again, as with the inaccurate “Arizona bill disallows doctors to treat those deemed undocumented” headline from earlier, this matter is bad enough on its own, and doesn’t need to be made worse with a false or misleading headline.

    Obviously crusader rabbit from the Toronto Police Force was actually issuing a damning indictment on men for their inability to exert any form of self control (ie.. not rape them) unless women take to the Burqa.

    About the Planned Parenthood article: The gov’t and the House of Reps says that they’re doing it to help save the economy. Why is it that whenever there’s some sort of problem and the gov’t has an idea to try to solve it, women’s rights are almost always the first to go? Can’t they find a way to help the country and the economy that won’t affect us for the worse? It’s as if we’re supposed to give up some of our rights and well-being “for the greater good.”
