It's time for a new kind of stupidity series: Stupid things that have been printed/shown/said in the news media (ie newspapers, radio, blogs, tv, etc.) It's like the other stupidity series (mine and Eli's) in that I give the statement and you have to figure out the stupidity. Here we go:

Well, at least she's not a bigot.

Is it a political blog? Sports? Religious? News-related? Random ramblings? None of these. It's basically a sex and gossip blog, although I suppose this could have occurred on a news blog, or even a political blog.

Does she talk about sex in relation to a certain type of people? Not necessarily, but this specific incident concerned a certain group Something like "[X type of people] make great lovers"? But nothing like this

Clarification: AFIAK the blog isn't really about racy sex tales but rather about news and events related to sex and sexuality.

The ethnicity of the group: white? Black? this, though it could conceivably have worked with any group except white, and possibly Jewish, although IDK about the last one and doubt it Hispanic? Asian? Jewish?

Sexual preference? Heterosexual? Noish Homosexual? yesish. I suppose it could also be bisexual in which case it wouldn't have an ish.

Is any of the following relevant: her age? religion? ethnicity? nationality? political beliefs? education? profession? physical appearance? No to these character traits? This would probably be noish

Relevant when she wrote the blog post? Only in that it was shortly after the study came out. You are still missing a very important detail. It would really help you to establish it, and you're probably not going to get any further without it.

Hint 2: Going back up to the answers I gave on April 17th at 2:56 and 4:51 PM and trying to clarify the answers I gave would help too. But you still need the other detail.

Now that you found out about the typo it should be relatively easy to solve. Just figure out what it was, which should be easy based on the above information.

Is the typo the important detail we kept missing/near FA or is that another rabbit trail to follow?

Are you seriously asking us to guess out of the blue what word she typed wrong?
Was it "study"?
Was it "sex"?
Her name?
"Homosexuality"?

Are you seriously asking us to guess out of the blue what word she typed wrong? Not really. As a hint though, the word with the typo was part of a phrase. That should help.
Was it "study"?
Was it "sex"?
Her name?
"Homosexuality"? No to all of these, but the (correct) phrase was related to homosexuality

...and I'm out of guesses. :D Given what I've said, it should be easy.

I know you are trying to be encouraging, but you've already discussed in other puzzles that you have an ASD, which means you see the world in a different way than those without ASDs...so I'm not sure what you consider easy or a logical linear leap is going to help me a lot. Also, apologies if I've offended but I was engaged for a time to an Aspie and I've lived the endless rounds of "Why do you not see this makes perfect sense? I get it and if you don't, then you're stupid" (from him, clearly).

*SIGH*
A phrase related to homosexuality...
Is it offensive?
Is it slang?
Phrase like a hyphenated phrase?
Like same-sex?
Is the orientation involved?
The word gay?

I get it and if you don't, then you're stupid" (from him, clearly). no offense taken. I'll leave this open another 24 hours or so and if nobody gets it I'll $poyle it. But Aspies are supposed to have trouble with wordplay, so I doubt that's a factor here.

*SIGH*
A phrase related to homosexuality...
Is it offensive? No
Is it slang? No
Phrase like a hyphenated phrase? No
Like same-sex? So No
Is the orientation involved? What do you mean?
The word gay? No

Hint: the word is often used in documents and surveys to refer to homosexuals, because it is seen as more "politically correct". Also, refer to the original statement. Also, Balin's question multiple posts up about the homosexuals being black is quite relevant, although you haven't explored it.

*****SPOILER****

From JumboJoke.com (http://www.jumbojoke.com/best_correction_blogging_division.html) although the link on that page confirms this is a true story:

"Amanda Hess, who blogs at TBD about Sex and gender at work, in bed, and on the street, recently had to post a correction.

No, she really needed to post the correction!

"This blog post originally stated that one in three black men who have sex with me is HIV positive," says a correction now added to the top of her October 8, 2010 entry.

"In fact," the correction continues, "the statistic applies to black men who have sex with men.""

So, in other words, she has sex with enough men, both black and white, for her to be able to estimate that "one in three" of the black one have HIV. Which also likely means she is HIV-positive. But hey, at least she's not a bigot. Good job everyone. I'm about to post a new puzzle. And sorry IO havent' been on much the last few days.

How do you figure that logically follows?

If one in three black men who she has sex with is HIV-positive, and she has sex with enough of them to provide a valid "one in three" statistic, then chances are she has had sex with many men who are HIV-positive. Do you want a more graphic description?

I really don’t need a more graphic description (yikes!). I was more ribbing you about some shoddy statistics there. A valid sample size for the statement “one in three black men who have had sex with me” would be three, provided all of her partners were black and one had HIV. Also, HIV transmission rates for a single encounter with proper condom use are rather low (1 in 5000).
