It's pretty clear that we need a primer in how to behave online. I'm here to help, folks. I'm just here to help.
Here we go.
1. If the media releases false information about a crime, please don't harass the accused woman's appearance just because.
Here's some of the Facebook reactions:
Yup. Just...just don't, folks.
Try this instead: "Man, it sucks that this information was spread before it was verified."
2. Don't deride them for how they choose to feed their children.
Epic Parenting shared the meme above. Here's a handful of the responses:
It's up to individual parents how they feed their children. As long as kids are eating, hold the judgment and try a side of compassion instead.
Try this instead: "Haha! That's kind of funny."
3. Don't assume that in order to perform at a high level, a female athlete must be a man.
This is from a news station out of Columbia, South Carolina.
And the response:
Try this instead: "Wow. What talent and skill!"
4. Maybe accept that sex isn't just about looks.
And the responses to this story looked like this:
Try this instead: "I wonder why none of the customers were arrested. Isn't prostitution illegal on both sides?"
5. Rape isn't funny, and victim-blaming isn't cool.
In case you've been under a rock, Bill Cosby was charged with sexual assault.
Let's just start by saying rape isn't funny, folks.
And victim-blaming (or straight up insulting them?)...no.
Try this instead: "I'm watching for the end of the trial. This is an interesting development, and I hope justice is served, whatever that might be."
6. Don't reduce female athletes to sex. Please.
Ronda Rousey followed through on her promise to go with a South Carolina marine to a ball.
Try this instead: "How nice of Rousey to follow through even though she was probably not feeling too well after, you know, having her jaw broken!"
