Attempting to score political points by debasing the meaning of words causes great harm in the long run. I wish more people understood this.

There are other similar effects.  Widening what is called 'assault' so as to point out how many people have been assaulted does create awareness of the breadth of a problem, however it makes it hard to understand what we're talking about as more serious crimes are lumped in with insults and such.  Maybe that's the goal, I don't know.
