This term is frequently used by pit bull advocates to condemn persons who speak up about the inherent dangers of pit bulls. The term is expressed in a variety of ways, such as: Get educated, Do some education, I am an educator and Educate yourself. The mauling thread following a May story (Pit Bull Attacks Dog, Owner in Elliot City) is a classic example. The terms are used 15 times, here are just a few examples:

  • “You really need to get educated on dogs before you say anything”
  • “All I ask is you do some education on the breed”
  • “Should we ban the human. Come on people, get educated!”
  • “Get educated people, Petey from the little rascals was a pit bull”
  • “I am an educator with a masters degree and I own a pit bull!”
  • “Stop name calling and get some education!”
  • “This comment blog has turned into “educated” pit bull owners and breed experts trying to convince the “uneducated” non breed experts”
