This last month has been filled with dark events. Artist Giger’s death, popular comedian Rik Mayall’s death, and a crazed austistic shooter Elliot Rodger inspiring the #YesAllWomen hashtag frenzy.

Perhapse most disturbing was that police did not react at first because Elliot’s rantings on very popular chat forums dedicated to hatrid of women and youtube rants discussing hatrid of women and their “female privlege” was at first considered “normal” by police. Which in turn brings into question how sexist police investigations are on average. Are police making jokes like this constantly behind people’s backs, and therefore not noticing it? However, I don’t want to dwell on too much negativity. This week I am going to switch to comedy meme’s to keep from making all my posts online super negative. Memes, the one thing that keeps the internet from being one long social fight.
