Yes, I hope it works. I am so tired of misogyny and violence being tolerated.
 
"Last week, activists launched a campaign that urged companies to boycott Facebook advertising because the social media network allows users to post images of domestic violence against women, while banning advertisements about women’s health. More than a dozen companies have pulled their advertising as a result, including online bank Nationwide UK, Nissan UK, and J Street.

[…]

"Facebook’s rules, however, appear to be enforced unevenly. A Facebook spokesperson told ThinkProgress that content featuring battered women, rape, and violence falls under 'poor taste' or 'crude attempts at humor' and does not violate its policies. And while Facebook screens anti-Semitic, Islamaphobic, and homophobic hate speech, the same standards do not apply to images of violence against women. At the same time, Facebook rejected an ad about breast cancer because it showed a woman’s breast."

This is a huge problem with our culture: violence (against women especially, but also in general) is completely tolerated, while sexuality and anything affecting women’s health (sexual or otherwise) is taboo and offensive.

Good on these 13 companies for dropping their ads, and a big hearty fuck you to Zappos, Dove (who is in the middle of a major campaign aimed at women!), Proctor & Gamble, and Zipcar.

Over the years, I have entertained many friends with stories & videos of duck penises. This research is solely due to the brilliance of Patricia Brennan, who has been unfairly singled out by Fox News and conservatives as representative of why NSF should be de-funded (putting me and every other scientist out of business). Let's all celebrate the wonder of duck penises, and support funding basic science.

Working hard on making a really great fun interactive day for children and adults alike. Now just hope that customs doesn't hold too many vultures at the border for excess carrion luggage!
