Image from Reddit posted by user Lunam with the text "What my super religious mother got me for Christmass..." When a young girl put a picture of herself, holding a book she had just gotten as a present, on the social networking site reddit, she was immediately subjected to intense verbal sexual assault by reddit readers who aptly demonstrated how awful it can be when boys and young men are left to say and do what they want without the social control of anyone knowing who they are. When Skepchick founder Rebecca Watson casually tossed out some relationship advice for clueless young men attending conferences they mistook for meat markets, she and anyone perceived as a friend, colleague, or ally of hers were subjected to relentless pounding with misogynistic language and faux threats of sexual violence.

As Georgia state senators debate how tough they should be on electric membership corporations that want to sell high-speed Internet, a key player in the legislation defended the high bar he has set. Regulated Industries and Utilities Chair Bill Cowsert, R-Athens, added an amendment to the bill Tuesday, demanding that EMCs provide Internet to every member of their service areas if they choose to sell broadband. He argued that the state gave EMCs great advantages when it granted the co-ops territorial, electric monopolies in the 1970s. He believes they can afford to provide service in the most secluded, most expensive parts of the state. But the bill's sponsor, State Sen. Steve Gooch, R-Dahlonega, said Cowsert's amendment is a "poison pill." He said EMCs won't be able to afford Cowsert's demand. At the end of a hearing Thursday, State Sen.
