Facebook wants you to send them your nudes for toootally normal, not-weird-at-all reasons
‘A staff member will view the uncensored image’
Facebook, the company that literally started out as Hot or Not for Harvard, wants you to know you can trust them to keep your revenge porn safe by letting them view it first.
In a press release, the company announced they're launching a program where users can submit their nudes to some guy sitting in Facebook HQ, surrounded by a bunch of empty wrappers of Bugles, in order to ensure they won't make it onto their site.
So let me get this straight.
Facebook wants girls to upload their sent nude photos for all of their staff to view to prevent revenge porn photos being a thing… hhhmmm

The program apparently uses image matching technology so no one can upload the same image onto the site or app, but the human addition is so unnecessarily creepy, and I swear I haven't gotten to the most fucked up part yet.
Facebook says the reason someone needs to look at it is so they can decide whether or not the nude someone else posted of you is, in fact, revenge porn. So not only will they be looking at your intimate images, but they'll be the deciding factor over whether or not you press charges.
With the rise of social media, we've seen a similar rise in revenge porn — not necessarily because there's more of it, but because platforms like Facebook and Instagram make it easier to spread.
Earlier this year, in the lamest attempt at a comeback to date, Rob Kardashian posted a bunch of Blac Chyna’s nudes on his personal Instagram account, catalyzing bigger conversations about flagging revenge porn before it's uploaded.
I'm just not sure some sweaty dude, flipping through thousands of nudes (which are definitely all revenge porn), is the knight in shining armor we need.
My friends think my obsession with horoscopes is ruining my life, which is exactly what my horoscope said they’d say

I’m the most astrologically involved of all my friends. They can’t tell you what their moon sign is or the difference between their rising and midhaven. They’re basically useless and rely on me to tell them everything.But I've successfully made my obsession my entire personality, and my friends are jealous. For guidance, I use Daily…
We asked real girls for their kinkiest sex stories, and my GOD did we underestimate them
‘Got double penetrated on a playground’
by Caroline Phinney
Last week, we asked girls to tell us their very first hoe stories and the shit they told us was wild. So I guess we should've known when we decided to ask for kinkiest sex stories, the bar would be raised. But even we weren't ready for what they had to say.No shaming here, just…
Look at this insane viral argument between a girl and her boyfriend and tell me: Who’s really in the wrong?
Is it her? Is it him? Is it our heteronormative society that values romance over all other relationships?
by Una Dabiero
We’ve all had those friends who should DEFINITELY break up. You know, the couple who throws shit at each other or sends nasty texts as “revenge” for some weird slight. Well, Twitter has found the ultimate toxic relationship. But people are conflicted about who’s at fault. Apparently, Veronica Lexus broke her boyfriend’s Xbox controller. In…
