To the editor: As a lover of pit-bull-type dogs, I eagerly clicked on the headline, “Will Hollywood lawyer Martin Singer's pitbull tactics still work in a post-Weinstein era?”
What pit-bull tactics could the article be referring to? Full body hugs and cuddles? Excessive face licking?
Rather, it seems you equate “pit bull” with “hit man” and “hard-edged.” This headline is inaccurate and frankly not helpful to those of us who love pit-bull-type dogs. It perpetuates stereotypes that are not based on fact and further contributes to the estimated 500,000 pit-bull-type dogs euthanized each year in the U.S.
I expect more from The Times.
