Worse than Wrong: A Voice for Men resorts to phony screenshots and outright lying to avoid admitting embarrassing error

via man boobz: When reputable publications, online or off, make a mistake, the editors grit their teeth, swallow their embarrassment, and run a correction. Men’s Rights hate hub A Voice for Men has somewhat more lax standards than reputable publications, or even not-so-reputable publications, and generally prefers to deal with its errors by pretending they never […]

[TW] Why I had to unfollow @everydaysexism

via Speak Out, Reach Out, Camp Out:  If there was a way I new on Twitter of following someone without their posts appearing in my feed, that is what I would do for @EverydaySexism.

Words Mean Things: Cascade Effects, Faberge Organics, and Lindy West
