This right here is the selfie that got the internet into a tizzy this weekend. The young girl in question had to defend herself against all kinds of harassment (unsurprisingly) after the picture went viral. According to her, she had studied the Nazi concentration camp with her father before his passing, and this was (by her logic) her way of honoring that time together. The whole incident calls to the front the politics of selfies and whether or not self-photography has the power to be an act of identity creation - and not just vanity. These are the things we should be talking about, but then you see her reaction to the controversy...



Aaaaaaand now I want to crawl into bed and just cry for the youth for a couple days.

It started out as a prank on 4chan, but as the old saying goes, "any community that gets its laughs by pretending to be idiots will eventually be flooded by actual idiots who mistakenly believe they are in good company." The subgroup of feminists who despise men quickly co-opted the prank, and turned it into a genuine call to abolish Father's Day, believing it to be an oppressive and misogynistic celebration of patriarchy.

Most people were quick to recognize the source of the ruse, but not Fox & Friends, who at this point will likely believe literally anything made up on the internet.

Meanwhile, rumor has it that the above feminists are set to launch a campaign to ban fireworks on Independence Day, because the fireworks' rise and sudden eruption is reminiscent of... you know what, never mind.
