What we missed

Facebook will not remove a page called “12 year old slut meme.” Charming, really.

A cool new site documents how often we use homophobic language without thinking (hint: it’s a lot).

Steph Herold analyzes some interesting but complex findings re: abortion attitudes among low income women.

Check out these awesome father-daughter portraits on Buzzfeed, cause aw!

    I’ve tried reporting that goddamn “12 Year Old Slut Meme” page like a hundred times… to no avail.

    I made the mistake of looking at some of the comments on Buzzfeed. A lot of them were mocking those of us who are offended by the “12 year old slut” meme.

    I agree, there is a problem with young girls posting suggestive images of themselves onto the Internet, where people like their future employer or people reviewing their college application will see, but you don’t need to be cruel to get that point across by saying “Go die.”
    Like how about reporting the girls’ pictures for sexual content? Hm? Or is that just too logical?
    I have a problem with calling a 12-year-old girl a slut, and as someone who was told “Go die” at that exact same age and later went on to attempt suicide, I have a really huge problem with people telling a 12-year-old girl to go die.
