My brother and his best friends last names are Weinberg and Weiner so they’re next to each other in their yearbook and LOOK AT WHAT THEY DID I AM SUCH A PROUD BIG SISTER RIGHT NOW
Meet Deric Lostutter, a 26-year-old cybersecurity consultant who also goes by the moniker “KYAnonymous.” Lostutter obtained and published tweets and Instagram photos in which members of the Steubenville High School football team joked about an incident in which a 16-year-old girl was raped.
Lostutter’s actions inspired a group of people to take justice into their own hands. A hacker called “Bobcat” vandalized the Facebook page of the Steubenville football team. Other hackers took similar action.
It’s unclear if Lostutter participated in any hacking shenanigans, but if he’s indicted and found guilty of any, he faces 10 years in jail. By comparison, the Steubenville rapists received one- and two-year sentences each.
I think I am going to reblog this once a day. Everyone needs to know about this, everyone needs to be outraged, and should stay outraged until something is done about it.
Woman in red dress, sprayed with tear gas by masked policeman, becomes symbol for Turkish protesters
In her red cotton summer dress, necklace and white bag slung over her shoulder she might have been floating across the lawn at a garden party; but before her crouches a masked policeman firing tear gas spray that sends her long hair billowing upwards.
Taken in Taksim Square in central Istanbul on May 28, the image has been endlessly shared on social media.
The woman in red has even been replicated as a cartoon on posters and stickers and has become a symbol for female protesters during days of violent anti-government demonstrations in Istanbul.
Some posters show the woman towering over a police officer and say “the more they spray, the bigger we get.” (Osman Orsal / Reuters)
