NYT's Sexless Victims Of Sexual Abuse

http://www.vdare.com/posts/nyts-sexl...f-sexual-abuse

"Did you notice which words are left off the first page, such as "boys," "youths," "males," etc. Obviously, there was no room for them because they had to squeeze in "student/s" a few more times.

Why the linguistic gymnastics?

Well, we can't have people thinking this is a gay thing (because it is)."

The use of the gender specific masculine pronoun gets the point across.
