    You “use a sex toy” on a partner.

    It’s not a sex toy when you don’t consent; at that point, it’s just being raped with a foreign object.

      I agree. I never said anything different either. I am just saying that this provides more context than sexual assault. If I was in charge of the headline it would probably be “rapist and racist cops torture and rape suspects mouth with sex toy.” But I’m not. As an observer, I felt more informed by the headline than if it just said sexual assault or rape, and you were more informed, too.

        I reread your comment after I replied and realized I sounded like I was accusing you of otherwise. Not my intention and thanks for the note.
