People are comparing Jesus’s love to sexual assault, and they’re even using the #MeToo hashtag
Alright, you’ve gone too far
by Katie Way
By now, we all know about the #MeToo movement and how important and cathartic it's been for countless women to finally confront and acknowledge sexual violence they've experienced. And it absolutely would not have been possible without the existence of social media and the platform it provides us.
But honestly, I'm not totally sold on the idea that everybody should be allowed to post whatever they want, whenever they want — and the following Facebook status is a very offensive Exhibit A.

The presence of the #metoo hashtag made me initially sympathetic, and the framing of the status — "I did not consent. I did not agree… I did not even really know what happened until years later" — closely mirrors a bunch of stories I've seen people of all genders share on my own Facebook feed.
But then, it literally takes the worst fucking turn possible and becomes a heavy-handed and tasteless metaphor for finding Jesus that doesn't even work!
so many ppl are trying to get ppl to unfollow me lol I thought Jesus said "turn the other cheek" not "be a little bitch"

"** Please know that I’m NOT making light of the #metoo movement. Regardless of your thoughts of that movement, sexual assault and harassment should never be allowed. If you’re a victim of that kind of behavior, then I encourage you to seek out help. **" said the original status, which completely makes light of the #MeToo movement.
It's since been reposted and shared by other public accounts.
Comparing "finding" God to getting sexually assaulted doesn't make religion any more appealing, and given the fact that church isn't exactly lit you think Christian advocates could try a little harder.
FUCK U SATAN!!! Fuck right off!!!!!

Plus, I'll say it: NOBODY fucking asked for a Jesus angle on the #MeToo movement! We didn't need it, and now that it's here I wish it was gone.
I guess it was only a matter of time before some zealot co-opted the first chance thousands of women and femmes have had to out abusers and come to terms with their trauma, but it's still shitty to actually see it in action. I'm pretty sure the answer to WWJD? is not "troll victims of sexual assault online for attention," and if that's what it takes to go to Heaven then I guess I'm psyched for Hell.
My friends think my obsession with horoscopes is ruining my life, which is exactly what my horoscope said they’d say
I saw this coming

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…
