Woman Gets Groper Arrested By Posting His Picture On Twitter

Sexual Harassment

When Julia Marquand walked into a Seattle store, a man started following her a little too closely, making her suspicious. He then proceeded to reach out and touch her butt. She told him to leave her alone, and he apologized, but that didn’t make up for what he’d just done. Twenty minutes later, she spotted him nearby outside store, confronted him, and took his picture. She told Komo 4 News:

“I was yelling a little bit and there was some people walking by and a couple asked me if I was OK. It seemed like he was trying to do some damage control once he realized I took his photo and (he) was apologizing more and telling me not to take his picture.”

Marquand reported the harassment to police, but they weren’t interested in her photo. Despite having evidence, it seemed pretty clear that nobody was interested in taking action, so Marquand took it upon herself. She posted about the incident on Facebook and posted the guy’s picture on Twitter. Keep reading »

Watch “Private Violence” This Monday For An Eye-Opening Look At Domestic Abuse

Private Violence
Leaving Isn't Always Easy

New HBO documentary “Private Violence” follows the experiences of Deanna Walters, a mom who was beaten by her estranged husband until she was close to death, and Kit Gruelle, the survivors’ advocate who helps Walters fight for justice. Walters and Gruelle weave their way through a complicated legal system and Walters finds that the law is often stacked against abuse victims. Film director Cynthia Hill told the Huffington Post that she made the film to help people understand that leaving an abusive partner is not always a simple option.

“We don’t understand this issue as a society. We all think domestic violence is bad, but we tend to still push it behind closed doors — it makes us uncomfortable. When the lights come up and someone finishes watching this film, if they don’t ask why doesn’t she just leave,’ then I feel like I’ve done my job. That’s the first step of finding other, better questions to ask…When one person believes in you, it makes a powerful difference.”

The movie premieres on HBO Monday night at 9 p.m. Considering the disheartening public response to domestic violence struggles like the one between Ray Rice and Janay Palmer, this is the exact kind of film this country needs to see more of. [HuffPost]

Broga Mats Put A Dude-Friendly Twist On Yoga Gear

When Yogi Dan Abramson started doing yoga to help recover from a back injury and realized it was total game changer, he embarked on a mission to inspire more dudes to get their downward dog on. While yoga has always been for everyone, the last few decades have seen it increasingly associated with Lululemon-wearing rich ladies. To change that, Abramson created Broga Mats, a series of yoga mats and accompanying bags designed for men’s bodies and adorned with quirky designs reminiscent of things like burritos, lumberjacks, and trees.

“Drunk J.Crew” Is Your New Favorite Tumblr

Drunk J. Crew

Some genius with a Tumblr account has astutely observed that all the models in the J.Crew catalogue look mildly drunk off their asses. Drunk J. Crew puts words in the mouths of those tipsy ladies, and the end result is perfect. It’s hard not to wonder why it took us all so many years of shopping at J.Crew or casually perusing their catalogues before these boozy vibes came to the surface.
