Not that I think traffic should trump employee safety anyway


We're just doing it because of our passion and desire to change society, not because of some capitalistic ideas about making money to feed some corporation - that's just capitalistic and patriarchal bullshit, that's not what we're about.

Oh, and I need a raise, the cost of living around here is getting crazy.



Is Fleshbot still a part of Gawker? I remember that one being linked from Jezebel until they complained about it.

Denton sold it a few years back because the HR and advertising firm he wanted to work with wouldn't take clients with porn in it. The girl he sold it to (the editor of the site) never paid him though and I think he's still suing her for it.

I started searching around for details, found the editor Lux something's website where google summarized it as "Lux is a writer, sex educator, comedian, and consultant. Past gigs have included serving as the editor, publisher, and CEO of Fleshbot,"

They're always comedians aren't they?

As a reminder, Lindy West is so fat that she has to use a seatbelt extender on airplanes.  Then she wants to talk about employee health and safety?  LOL

How can you expect to smash the patriarchy when you can't even handle the occasional gross gif?

dear gawker,

like it or not the internet has changed things. If people don't like you or what you have to say they are going to try and get a rise out of you. Usually by posting gross images. Seriously, you guys know this, we were all 14 and on the internet at some point. You don't get to pretend this is somehow new, or upsetting. You know this is the work of a bunch of middle school bullies and it is your choice to let that kind of shit effect how you, an adult, see the world. Are they being dipshits? yeah. Can you do anything about it? no. Is this "threatening your mental health"? Give me a fucking break. Grow up and move on

sincerely,

[gif of a pair of blown-out, dp assholes]

Well that's the heart of the matter. They were bullied in middle school, and at the age of 28 are getting triggered and flashing back by bullies currently in middle school. They are reverting to a childlike state and getting owned by 5th graders instead of handling it like adults.

Also,

Jezebel is doing quite well at being the Kotaku of feminism.

The internet is going nuts at this "upheaval".  I'm hoping that Jezebel goes on their own and then dies off.  The big reason why Gawker is the size it is today is not just clickbait but it has a staff dedicated to knowing the ins and outs of being disproportionately represented on social media, especially Facebook.  A bunch of fat feminists aren't going to know how to game the system so its hits/clicks will drop down to a fraction of what they were and Lindy West will have to find a real job.

they can't really just go on their own since afaik they're owned and ran by gawker media. at best a bunch of them could go and start their own blog but these women know nothing except writing about how awful things are for women so i doubt it would be much of a hit. besides it's not like alarmist blog writer is a tough to fill position.

It seems every Gen Y prog/feminist were bullied nerds in school who never hardened the fuck up and got over it.

These are the same people who claim PTSD over online slapfights and become "literally ill" over badthink. Rape gifs are actual attempted murder in their feeble little minds.

I spend too much time reading Gawker comments and I have never seen unexpected porn let alone whatever a "rape GIF" is. This whole thing is made up.

These are the same sorts that believe all PiV sex is rape, so it could have been tame fucking... still rape.gif.
she has an weird expression (or face) and i'm just not into it at all :shrug:

i mean im not saying she's ugly or wouldn't bang, she's utterly forgettable to me and deffo not my type

edit: might as well clarify further before the chimpouts over mlady: yes yes shes like an 8 or a 9 or whatever no need to get the fedoras out but im sure she appreciates the white knighting

edit 2: wait wait seriously i just reread the page and is she really 15? i thought that he was joking at first but is he actually serious? because take that fucking picture down if it's the case you fucking weirdo what the fuck

These people are all gender studies students or believe in its philosophy.  One of the core tenets of gender studies is that the truth and the facts are separate.  Not even kidding here.  So if a Gawker editor felt triggered when reading the comments, if it felt like she was looking at rape.gif, then it's just as valid as if she actually looked at a rape gif.

The feminists on Jezebel have called in a man to fix their problem. They will now have to preapprove all comments.

http://jezebel.com/what-gawker-media-is-doing-about-our-rape-gif-problem-1620742504

I guess they'll just use their unpaid interns to handle the approval process. Kind of funny how all these uber-liberal sites are getting sued by employees who weren't paid (Huffpo is getting sued too). Do as I say, not as I do.

So...they won a major victory that they are crowing over which is that instead of the precious feminist writers getting exposed to this "filth" and getting badthink feels, somebody else just has to look at this shit to protect them?
 :geithner:

So what happens when the people who have to look at the rape gifs now get triggered?
