Charges laid against 274 Canadian men in child exploitation bust. Police discovered 20 victims, nine of which were being sex-trafficked.

New Canadian study suggests that perpetrators of domestic violence should be treated with psychedelics, ignoring the fact that most male abusers aren’t mentally ill:

“There’s a serious problem at the heart of this research — summed up with the word ‘treatments’… But this is to ignore the fact that male violence isn’t an illness.

Sarai Walker, author of Dietland, links hatred and discrimination of people who aren’t thin with porn culture:

“London was the most fat-shaming place I’ve been in my entire life. […] women’s bodies were on display in London like I’ve never seen. In the phonebooths with those pictures of naked women, and on Page 3, and in those tabloid newspapers with half-naked women on the cover. It was like the whole city was a red-light district.”
