Kortney Renee Honstein's curator insight, December 1, 6:31 PM

A 14 year old girl was accused of poisoning the 35 year old man her parents forced her to marry because she was not in love with him. She also killed three others because of they ate the food she covered in rat poison. Police questioned her without a parent or lawyer present so everything she said they couldn't use. Therefore her lawyer tried saying that he confession to killing her husband was false. She also did not give her parents permission to find her a husband which is something you have to do in order to marry a child younger than 21 off. They ended up dismissing the charges for fear of reputation. They told everyone that she was a victim, because she could have been raped by the man she was forced to marry.

How science explains #Gamergate

How science explains #Gamergate | Gender, Religion, & Politics | Scoop.it
A growing body of research links violent video games to aggressive and antisocial behavior.
DrSophi's insight:

"By now you're probably heard of #Gamergate, the internet lynch mob masquerading as a movement for ethics in video game journalism. Though #Gamergaters, as they're known, have repeatedly targeted their critics with rape and death threats, drawing rebukes from the broader gaming community, surprisingly few observers have asked whether violent video games themselves may have triggered this sort of abhorrent behavior." - Mother Jones

Today’s U.S. Supreme Court decision to let stand gay marriage laws in several states does not mean Ohio automatically will follow suit, says a gay rights leader. That’s because Ohio’s ban remains under appeal with the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, says Ian James, executive director of FreedomOhio, a group circulating a petition to overturn the state’s 2004 constitutional ban on gay marriage.
