It’s Saturday, so I have some things for you to click on.
- Billy Corgan upset that “the wrong racial epithet” could destroy his career — I think the solution to this one is staring you in the face: don’t use racial epithets. It’s not even hard.
- This sexist dress code poster compares girls to meat — Student makes a poster that suggests letting girls dress however they want distracts boys and sends boys down a path to career destruction. Who knew women were so powerful and men so weak? The real issue here is a student picking up those kinds of messages in the first place.
- Beware of these 7 popular chocolate brands that exploit child slaves — There’s no reason to support this kind of behavior in this day and age, and boycotting particular chocolate suppliers isn’t that difficult, either.
- Anti-Donald Trump forces gear up for third-party challenge — This should be fun. The continued implosion of the GOP continues.
- Former Facebook workers: we routinely suppressed conservative news — As is the company’s right, of course. It’s their playground. But then they should have been honest about it, instead of suggesting that their “trending topics” were obtained solely from user traffic.
- The aspiring novelist who became Obama’s foreign policy guru — A profile of Ben Rhodes, who all but controls how the media perceives Obama’s foreign policy actions.
- Why the Ben Rhodes profile in the New York Times Magazine is just gross — In case you thought the author and subject of the previous piece were too chummy.
- Why the 2016 election cycle could be the start of a totalitarian strain in US politics — The rise of the Trump demographic does indeed make for troubling times.
