So you might or might not have come across the story of Rehtaeh Parsons, a girl from Nova Scotia who was gang-raped when she was 15, and bullied for a two years about it until she killed herself back in April.  Tragic, sick story.  So, why bring this up six months later?

Because Facebook's using her profile picture in dating service advertisements.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Yeah, that was all over the news up here at the end of last week. FB is playing the blame-the-third-party game here, but I think that may actually be sort of justified in this case.

I mean the advertiser was all "We didn't know!" and it's like "Hey maybe you shouldn't just randomly grab a pic of any girl you found on the internet to use in your ads without their permission, huh assholes?"

Thousands of young men being systematically worked to death to build Qatar's World Cup facilities

Not that that kind of activity is new in the Saudi peninsula, but Jesus the scale and depth of this stuff is really getting insane.

Facebook to create company town

There's a lot of observations about how our present economic situation resembles the gilded age of Capitalism but then company towns.

So long as they don't re-introduce company scrip, whatever I guess.

Although I am not fond of the companies paying via prepaid cards.

Basically, a guy was detained by police on suspicion of drug possession, taken to a hospital and repeatedly anally violated with fingers, enemas and cameras.

They're also trying to bill him for it.

Yeah, that story is just, beyond insane. He was pretty much raped by the police 9 times for failing to stop at a stop sign and walking funny.

Hey, how about that time that nazis marched to keep the Redskins white?

It's historical rather than current, but I had to share this because that photo is flat-out amazing.

I mean, I love how utterly hopeless those shitbags look. It's just perfect. I actually thought that was an Onion pic at first, before I read the article.

Yeah, I am the most anti-conspiracy-theory guy I know, and that's one of those ones that even I'm like "BULLSHIT!"

It's not totally 100% impossible that that's what happened, but, well, let's just say it's highly improbable.

Mother takes infant in to be circumcised.  Doctors cut off his dick, send him home.

The part that baffles me the most is how they just ... wrapped him up and sent him home, and the mother found out what was happening when she saw that his diaper was filling with blood.  They didn't even, like, tell her there.  Did they hope she wouldn't notice?

What thread do we use for generally unethical legal issues?

http://www.popehat.com/2013/11/15/new-from-kleargear-free-speech-only-3500-plus-shipping-and-handling/

The gist is that an online store didn't send what a customer had bought, the customer complained on a review site, then three years later, the company hit her with a $3,500 fine for disparagement and ruined her credit rating using a contractual clause they had introduced after she had made the complaint.
