Julian Assange has been busy MRAing all over the internet today, offering James Damore, the Google employee who wrote an internal memo perpetuating sexist stereotypes about women, a job at Wikileaks. Damore’s memo read:

“The distribution of preferences and abilities of men and women differ in part due to biological causes and… these differences may explain why we don’t see equal representation of women in tech and leadership.”

And about that memo, Helen Lewis says we’re asking the wrong questions.

Chris Brown continues to be a creep.

Indeed, I think we’re all tired of seeing women’s (often sexualized) battered corpses on screen.

Police are looking for a male jogger who shoved a woman into the road, in front of a bus, in London.
