"Don’t take a nude pic if you’re a famous woman and don’t want it leaked."

mysharona1987:

"Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."

"Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."

"Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."

"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."

Victim blaming 101: Everyone should live in fear from ever doing anything.

(And while I’m at it: this is a friendly reminder that there’s a world of difference between being critical of victim blaming and saying precautions are totally unnecessary and/or unhelpful. They can be useful on a case-by-case basis, but to end the patterns of violence and harassment it’s crucial to examine the underlying structures that allow for these violations of privacy & bodily autonomy to happen.)

But before we move along, what are pangolins?”

Learn more about these unusual animals from theatlantic.

The Internet, it seems, is contributing to the polarization of America, as people surround themselves with people who think like them and hesitate to say anything different. Internet companies magnify the effect, by tweaking their algorithms to show us more content from people who are similar to us.
