Tumblr takes me to my dashboard or log whenever i try posting, editing, or reblogging, and that started happening a week ago.  i can't get the exact date 'cause i can't edit posts.  i see plenty of other folks' fresh posts via dashboard, so i suspect it's because my ancient browsers and machine (because which i can't update browsers).

Above: what ignorance, bigotry, and stupidity looks like.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said women cannot be treated as equal to men, and has accused feminists of rejecting motherhood.

"You cannot put women and men on an equal footing," he told a meeting in Istanbul. "It is against nature."

He also said feminists did not grasp the importance of motherhood in Islam.

His comments often seek to appeal to his pious core supporters, says the BBC’s Mark Lowen in Istanbul, but they anger more liberal voters.

Turks who have more secular views argue that the government’s social policies are taking the country in a dangerous direction, our correspondent says.

Mr Erdogan has previously urged women to have three children, and has lashed out against abortion and birth by Caesarean section.

'Delicate nature'
His latest remarks were delivered at a women’s conference in Istanbul.

"In the workplace, you cannot treat a man and a pregnant woman in the same way," Mr Erdogan said, according to the Anatolia news agency.

Women cannot do all the work done by men, he added, because it was against their “delicate nature”.

"Our religion regards motherhood very highly," he said. "Feminists don’t understand that, they reject motherhood."

He said women needed equal respect rather than equality.

Mr Erdogan also told the Istanbul meeting that justice was the solution to most of the world’s issues - including racism, anti-Semitism, and “women’s problems”.

The Turkish leader often courts controversy with his statements.

Earlier this month, he claimed that Muslims had discovered the Americas more than 300 years before Christopher Colombus. …

I’m only sharing tweets for those who are not on twitter and can’t see how passionate and outraged journalists are as they tweet from #Ferguson.

If you are on Twitter, here’s a good roster of people to follow if you want to keep updated.

WTF, Yankistan?!

Facebook faces UK inquiry over news feed emotion study | Technology | theguardian.com

Information Commissioner’s Office reported to be looking into study in which postings for 700,000 users were secretly altered

Facebook is being investigated to assess whether an experiment in which it manipulated users’ news feeds to study the effect it had on moods might have broken data protection laws, it has been reported.

The Information Commissioner’s Office is said to be looking into the experiment carried out by the social network and two US universities in which almost 700,000 users had their news feeds secretly altered to study the impact of “emotional contagion”.

The ICO said it was too early to tell what part of the law Facebook might have infringed, the Financial Times reported. …

… Many users reacted angrily following online reports of the findings, which were published in the 17 June edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Some referred to it as “creepy”, “evil”, “terrifying” and “super disturbing”. …

Facebook researcher apologizes for emotional response test

‘Facebook has done so many things over the years that scared and freaked out people.’

A Facebook researcher apologized after conducting an experiment that temporarily influenced what almost 700,000 readers saw on their news feeds, reviving some customers’ concerns about privacy issues.

The number of positive and negative comments that users saw on their feeds of articles and photos was altered in January 2012, according to a study published June 17 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. People shown fewer positive words were found to write more negative posts, while the reverse happened with those exposed to fewer negative terms, according to the trial of random Facebook users.

Adam Kramer, a Facebook data scientist who was among study’s authors, wrote on his Facebook page yesterday that the team was “very sorry for the way the paper described the research and any anxiety it caused.”

The data showed that online messages influence readers’ “experience of emotions,” which may affect offline behavior, the researchers said. Some Facebook users turned to Twitter to express outrage over the research as a breach of their privacy.

“Facebook knows it can push its users’ limits, invade their privacy, use their information and get away with it,” said James Grimmelmann, a professor of technology and the law at the University of Maryland. “Facebook has done so many things over the years that scared and freaked out people.”

Even so, the anger won’t have a long-lasting effect, Grimmelmann said. While some users may threaten to leave Facebook, most people “want to be where there friends are” and there is no alternative to the social networking site that provides more privacy, he said. …

… The Facebook study is “really important research” that shows the value of receiving positive news and how it improves social connections, said James Pennebaker, a psychology professor at the University of Texas. Facebook might have avoided some of the resulting controversy by allowing users to opt out of taking part in any research, he said.

“It will make people a little bit nervous for a couple of days,” he said in an interview. “The fact is, Google knows everything about us, Amazon knows a huge amount about us. It’s stunning how much all of these big companies know. If one is paranoid, it creeps them out.” …

Lemme get this straight. One arrogant fuckwit figures no one will quit fb after this mindfuck because everyone’s friends are there? Fucking spare me. It’s ‘their’ friends, not ‘there’ friends too, also. Another arrogant asshole, a university of texASS psychology professor ‘thinks’ that only the paranoid are concerned about all these companies having shedloads of info about us? He sounds just like those “You have nothing to fear if you have nothing to hide!” party line-spewing robotic shills.
