​The Internet in 2014 Was Basically Just Hackers, Misogynists, and Kim Kardashian’s Ass

​The Internet in 2014 Was Basically Just Hackers, Misogynists, and Kim Kardashian’s Ass | Back Chat | Scoop.it

Remember when the internet used to be fun?


In 2014, this platform was used for everything from charity to culture wars to gross acts of nudity. The human race is louder, angrier, shallower, and sometimes funnier than ever before and the stakes are getting higher every day.


Thanks Martin Robbins and VICE for writing the piece that all of us who write about life online wanted to write, if only we could just have blocked out the online chatter long enough to do so.

Chelsea Handler Slams Instagram for Removing Her Topless Photo, Claims Sexism Allows Vladimir Putin to Show His Nipples, But Forbids Women From Doing Same

Chelsea Handler Slams Instagram for Removing Her Topless Photo, Claims Sexism Allows Vladimir Putin to Show His Nipples, But Forbids Women From Doing Same | Back Chat | Scoop.it

What started out as a funny joke is now turning into a mudslinging war of words. After the topless photo of the comedienne was initially removed, Handler reposted it and wrote that if Instagram removed it again, "You're saying Vladimir Putin has more 1st amendment rights than me." Handler's pose mimics a much mocked (but never censored) shot of the Russian leader, topless, on horseback.
