  • Meryem Ali, 28, of Houston, Texas, is suing Facebook for $123 million for failing to remove her likeness in “revenge porn” photos posted to their site. As she tells Cosmopolitan.com, a man she had hung out with three times created a fake profile with photos of Ali’s head photoshopped onto pornographic images.  Ali’s original contact with Facebook with pretty much ignored (as well as contact made by family and friends). Four-and-a-half months later, Facebook finally took down the offending content only after they were contacted by police. Ali is now suing the site for 10 cents for every one of Facebook’s 1.23 billion users. [Cosmopolitan.com] Keep reading »

5 People We Should Actually Impeach

5 People We Should Actually Impeach

Republicans are talking about impeaching President Obama. YAWN. Can I just point out that we talked about impeaching Bush, too? Is this going to be a thing we do with every President? It’s 2014. In terms of eight-year terms, his is almost over. Politicians will start officially announcing their candidacies in February and we’ll be so distracted by that circus that we’ll all but forget about what the executive branch of our government is doing. The impeachment process takes so long that all the pro-impeachers really have to do is pipe up about it every few weeks and wait and he’ll be out of office in the same amount of time anyway – and they know that. It’s not a serious threat, it’s just a diversion.

If eighteen percent of Americans believe that we should be able to use the impeachment process to “register dissatisfaction with White House policies” (OH COME ON PEOPLE, BUCK UP), I can think of worthier candidates for impeachment than President Obama.

Mother Charged After Helping Her Son Take The “Fire Challenge”

Mother Charged After Helping Her Son Take The "Fire Challenge"

A North Carolina mother has been charged with “contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile” after she assisted her 16-year-old son in taking what’s called the “fire challenge,” one of those absurdly dangerous stunts kids these days are doing for attention. The fire challenge is quite simple: you light yourself on fire and film it for posterity on social media. I know, sounds like a blast, right? No wonder Janie Lachelle Talley, 41, wanted to get in on the action, allegedly filming her son as he doused himself in finger nail polish and lit himself on fire. He suffered minor burns on his chest and neck.

Seriously, though, the “fire challenge” is actually a THING that teenagers are doing. I don’t want to be hysterical about so-called trends, but this shit is INSANE. And WTF is happening with parents? Someone help me understand. [Yahoo!]
