I have seen some very interesting breast cancer “awareness” campaigns in my time on social networks.
I was elated when Sam Pepper’s “Fake hand ass pinch prank” video was rightfully removed by Youtube within two days of being uploaded. Instead of being a swift and feel-good victory for feminists, though, the incident has served as an ongoing and increasingly disturbing awakening to the sexual abuse entrenched in Youtube culture.
Emma Watson’s address to the UN has been shared on my facebook feed by people I would never have equated with feminism.
Earlier this week, the South African Police Service (SAPS) tweeted a series of #StopRape “hints”, essentially instructing people on how not to get raped.
