Julian Assage Shares Male Secret On Twitter And Gets Ruthlessly Roasted

If Julian Assange's goal here was to kick the proverbial hornet's nest, thereby igniting a full-fledged explosion of rage from crowds of people on Twitter....then mission accomplished. Let's just say we're all well aware of another undeniable truth, after Assange's tweet; and that is that you don't tweet sh*t like this, unless you want to kickstart a Twitter war. 

Julian Assange shares a secret for males on Twitter and ignites the rage of feminists everywhere, for sexism.

People Lose It On Twitter Over Sexist and Racist Cartoon That Ends Up Being About Fetish Porn

In light of the unsettling realization about what the cartoon actually is, I can (try and) appreciate the "artist's" intentions here were coming from an allegedly good enough place. But I mean, damn, they should've seen the blowback coming on this one at some point. It's almost impressive. In a single cartoon they didn't fail to hit many of the widely-known trigger points. You know...sexism, feminism, etc.

Fox News Runs Questionable Headline, Ignites Blind Rage From Feminists Everywhere

Fox News just can't win lately. Is Walter White back in the market, and are they smoking that Blue Crystal with Jesse Pinkman somewhere along Skid Row before clocking on for the day, or what? They're consistently failing left and right. If their goal is to alienate huge majorities of their audience, then hell, the ratings just came in, and Fox News, lemme be the first to say -- you're killing it.

10 Male/Female Double Standards That People Absolutely Can't Stand

Ah, double standards. I could almost hear the groans and sighs of irritation from some of you out there, no doubt off put by the very fact we invite these kinds of discussions in online forums. If there's one thing that became glaringly evident, scrolling through the rants and tangents of this AskReddit to pull some decent pointers (at least I hope so), it's that a relationship is a game of give and take. The playing field between romantic partners is continually shifting, and sure, norms, gender stereotypes suck; but we're not going to break down standards that have stood the test of time up to this point in a day. So we can all just point 'em out, shine a spotlight on 'em, and maybe figure out why they're there and ultimately, why they shouldn't be. I'm trying to remain neutral here for the sake of spurring discussion between you guys, the audience; but I'll be sure to jump in on dat comments section if the discussion really gets going.

Bumble Gave This Dude the Boot for His Sexist Rant About Beyoncé and Neo-Liberals

This delusional Bumble user lost all chill and turned a simple question into a rant about Beyoncé, neo-liberals, feminism, and gold-diggers.

Not only did Bumble kick this guy off of their dating app, but they went ahead and publicly shamed him on their blog as well.

Bumble is an online dating app meant to empower women. On Bumble, females initiate the conversations in efforts to help eliminate situations like this.

Alex Purdy was looking for life long friendships, support and maybe some philanthropy when she joined her sorority. What she got was a house full of mean girls. When she left Greek life she made this video hoping to inspire change. She says this in the description:

This video is a reflection of my experience in a sorority. I decided to leave last semester and make this video to share my thoughts on how greek life can change for the better. I want to make it clear that all matters are purely my opinion. If you relate to some of the things I said, please share this video on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #sororityrevamp to help inspire others to bring sororities back to their roots.


She mentions girls being given weight loss pills to encourage them to lose weight and girls being told to dress more provocatively so that "boys will like them".  Her biggest problem was the lack of compassion her "sisters" had toward each other. So far she's received mostly words of encouragement for her video.
