#Shirtgate / #Shirtstorm - a bunch of people being disappointed and saying "That's inappropriate", not a feminist lynch mob
Assuming this is an accurate representation (I've not searched myself), the guy in the stupid shirt hasn't been 'hounded', he's just very visibly worn an inappropriate shirt, thus had quite a few people react (fairly mildly) to it.

“‘We Have Always Fought’: Challenging the ‘Women, Cattle and Slaves’ Narrative” by Kameron Hurley — A Dribble of Ink
'I’m going to tell you a story about llamas. It will be like every other story you’ve ever heard about llamas: how they are covered in fine scales; how they eat their young if not raised properly; and how, at the end of their lives, they hurl themselves – lemming-like - over cliffs to drown in the surging sea. They are, at heart, sea creatures, birthed from the sea, married to it like the fishing people who make their livelihood there.'

Why are my feminist friends still taking their husbands' surnames? | Zoe Holman | Comment is free | theguardian.com
An interesting question; I can certainly see the very strong arguments for keeping your name, but I can also see those for wanting to share a name as part of the togetherness of marriage. The problem is that patriarchal culture means everyone expects it to be the man's name. Of course, in that case you can double-barrel, or you could even come up with an entirely new name (though few would, I think)

Why "Stop taking photos and enjoy the view" is wrong
To be fair, I do try and avoid doing too much 'must capture it all' on events I'm going to, gigs, or whatever. But there's a joy in sharing the random weird stuff I find in London, or the fucked up stuff we come up with in our games of Cards Against Humanity, or just grabbing a few cool moments from a fun night out to remind yourself of it months or years later.

Doge (meme) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The meme typically consists of a picture of a Shiba Inu dog, often with text written in Comic Sans MS in the foreground. The text is deliberately written in broken English, following the format of "such x", "many x", "very x" and "so x".[1] The word "wow" is often used in the meme.

BBC disciplines Graham Norton for wearing AIDS awareness ribbon on chat show · PinkNews.co.uk
