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!”

CCRI – Watch us Grow!

Massive growth on the horizon for the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative!

This week, I’ll be in Miami conducting our first training for our new Helpline, which will go live next week.

Next week, I’ll be representing the CCRI as a member of the Consent Coalition in meetings with folks from Facebook and Twitter. The coalition is a group of activists concerned with various aspects of gender harassment and abuse seeking to get social media to implement real standards and practices to address these issues.

Also next week, I’ll be testifying in support of a bill to make non-consensual pornography a crime in Washington, DC.
