The reason we see so many pictures of naked women being leaked without consent and not nearly so many of men is that the presumed consumers of pictures of naked men—straight women and gay men—know what it’s like to be victimized and are less willing to participate in the violation of someone’s privacy. 

The douchebags looking at these photos today believe themselves to be entitled to them. Demand creates supply.

Thank you for writing this. I hope the hacker or hackers are prosecuted to the fullest for what they did.

The Game is On in September!

Rock the SPORTS AU!

New month, NEW Rock the AU! theme!  Whether its the “posh country sports” Sybil would have grown up learning, or the more rugged, working class games Tom and his siblings would have played, get ready to ROCK the SPORTS AU this September!

From period pieces with “infamous cricket matches” and village fair tug-of-war tournaments, to modern stories with city marathons or the Bransons cheering on Ireland in the Six Nations rugby championship (with Sybil maybe throwing in an occasional cheer for England, just to tease Tom).

Whatever the sport, whatever the event, whatever the period, grab your gym shoes and get ready to cheer our beloved Bransons as they ROCK THE SPORTS AU this month!

…AND DON’T FORGET!

Sunday, Sept. 14 is STEAMM Day 2014!  Need an idea for a STEAMM story?  Maybe something of a “sporting” nature will inspire you?

i am laughing because i just started imagining a gordon ramsay-like feminist writer who, rather than helping to keep restaurants in business, goes to writers of television shows and films and chastises them for the sexism, racism, and general lack of diversity in their scripts

"YOUR SCRIPT IS AS WHITE AS THE PAPER IT’S PRINTED ON, YOU DONKEY."

PLEAAAAASEEEEEEEEE

I DIDN’T KNOW I NEEDED THIS UNTIL I SAW THIS POST!

I got nominated for the Ice Bucket Challenge today. I’ll be doing it tomorrow morning. Now I’m spending the night picking out my nominees.
