NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY
This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.
For what it’s worth, the opinion column is 3 years old, and CBS has already caught hell for running it, so there’s that.
Umm… I don’t think a human torso can bend that way. It’s not as egregious as when they do this to show off a female character’s boobs and butt - as here it’s clearly meant to show off the cyber-arm, and that the lead is a cyborg. Still, it doesn’t work.
It’s also kind of misleading, as IIRC, this character doesn’t become a cyborg - her partner does.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
I love innovative companies like Tumblr because they are always looking at the bigger picture and strive for an Internet that is open and free for the people. Net neutrality has been a subject that I often blog about and many people who have followed the fight for net neutrality know how devastating it would be if we lost an open and free Internet. But for those who don’t know much about this subject, these efforts from Tumblr and other companies show how important it is to tell our political leaders that we don’t want to pay extra money for slower speeds. We can’t let cable companies get away with putting more money into their greedy pockets.
And I’d like to mention that people have been getting upset because tumblr is speaking out about net neutrality, but not about ferguson.
guys, WAKE THE FUCK UP. have you seen tumblr delete ferguson posts like twitter? have you seen how vocal the communities on this website have been, and tumblr hasn’t censored us?
THEY’RE PROTECTING OUR RIGHTS BY INITIATING THIS CAMPAIGN.
Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.
Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.
