Word Watch

I've got no opinion on "birth rape," apparently a term of art for invasive medical procedures conducted during childbirth. But this sentence, flagged by Ann Althouse, is a doozy:

Yeah, it’s wrong to make a woman feel emasculated on what should be one of the most empowering days of her life, but it’s not rape.
That's in Time Magazine, folks.
