The lead in a NYT Style article reads:
“Four teenage girls and two men suspected of stealing jewelry and clothing…”
A few paragraphs later, it describes the suspects more thoroughly:
“The six who have been charged are Nicholas Prugo, 19; Diana Tamayo, 19; Courtney Ames, 19; Ms. Neiers, 18; Roy Lopez Jr., 27, a bouncer; and Jonathan Ajar, 28.”
First of all, NYT, learn to count: you just listed three men and three women. SECOND, and even more importantly, all three females were 18 or older, so why are you calling them “teenage girls” and the males “men?” That is really careless, obvious, and dumb sexism.
Come on, New York Times. I expect better of you.
