John Oliver’s Internet Misyogyny Rant is Satisfying as Hell (via Jezebel)

“Yesterday on Last Week Tonight, John Oliver devoted 16 full minutes to the topics of vicious, misogynist online harassment and revenge porn, the difficulties of stamping them out, and the absolutely unacceptable responses from authorities. The whole thing culminates in a parody of an early 90s AOL ad. It was pretty satisfying.

Oliver: “I’m talking about the kind of direct threats that can make people fear for their safety. And if you’re thinking, well, come on, that doesn’t seem like that big a problem, well congratulations on your white penis. Because if you have one of those, you probably have a very different experience of the Internet.” Look, dudes, it’s coming from a dude! You can believe it now!”

    Mz Charini I saw John Oliver show it was heartbreaking to think you contemplated suicide.You are a beautiful woman and mother. The people who try to hurt us this way take great pleasure in our pain. Don’t let them win go about your life proudly you have nothing to be ashamed about.
