Gravity Doesn't 'Card': Cyber Bullys and the Laws of the Universe

The unedifying saga of Amanda Todd is one with a single victim, no heroes, and too many auxiliary vampires and vultures.

Every update about the adorable looking 15-year-old girl who was apparently driven to suicide by online "jailbait" bullies simply increases the world's toxicity.

Learning that vigilantes have (or haven't) tracked down and publicly shamed her alleged tormenter (and other accused online lowlifes) somehow doesn't reassure me.

So I hesitate to add to this mess, and am unsure whether I have anything original or useful to say.

Except one thing, the thing I haven't seen mentioned much in all the bandwagon-jumping articles condemning "cyberbullying" and "rape culture," and calling on Somebody (always Somebody Else) to Do Something.

Here it is.

Are you ready?

DEAR FEMALES:

DON'T POST NAKED PICTURES OF YOURSELF ON THE INTERNET.
