The Minds of Teenage Girls
The mercurial behaviour of teenage girls is often dismissed as the result of hormones. But is it? In her new book, "Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions Into Adulthood," psychotherapist Lisa Damour uses neuroscience to explain what's happening in the brain during this time of growth and transition. // [...] 21:30 depression in kids/adolescence is not same, it is irritability and crankyness, following them everywhere they go - it's not typical. [...] high functioning kids come from warm places with structure.

Grant Shapps resigns over blackmail plot over Conservative MP's affair with an aide | Daily Mail Online
[ Tatler Tory scandal ] The Mail on Sunday wonders whether party chairman Lord Feldman - who previously shared the job with Mr Shapps - might be "doomed", after his former colleague stepped down amid claims he had failed to act on the allegations. The controversy erupted after the apparent suicide of activist Elliott Johnson, who had complained of being bullied. "Shapps' allies claimed he had been made a 'scapegoat' to protect Feldman, a close friend of the prime minister," says the Mail. The Sunday ( ) Telegraph suggests Mr Shapps must be "getting used to it", having endured controversy over claims he tried to "mould his public image on the web", his use of a pseudonym - which he initially denied - for a second job and receipt of donations from firms linked to his portfolio when a shadow minister. //via //&!

The Trans Movement Needs a New, Science Based Strategy | Brynn Tannehill
Tuesday's defeat of HERO highlights several conclusions that the LGBT movement needs to take to heart for the next decade or so. Foremost is that we will not win transgender issues directly at the ballot box, or in the gerrymandered republican legislatures which dominate the political landscape. [...] When opponents frame legal protections for transgender people as a choice between a group strangers (who are suspected of being perverts anyway) and the safety your wives and daughters, transgender people will lose every time. So far, anti-LGBT forces have been far more successful at pushing their narrative. I don't foresee this changing anytime soon. [...] Convincing large numbers of people driven by fear and religious beliefs simply will not happen. &! &! &!

Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame - YouTube
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.

BBC News - Primary pupils need sex-and-relationships education, say MPs
All state primary and secondary schools in England should have to teach sex-and-relationships education (SRE), MPs have said in a report. The Commons Education Committee's inquiry was launched after Ofsted found more than a third of schools were failing to provide age-appropriate SRE. Committee chairman Graham Stuart MP said "young people have a right to information that will keep them safe". The government said it would consider the findings carefully.

the internet brings out the worst in people and society - because it is frictionless. wait 10 year and we hope we died 10 years ago. // ""You don’t really recover from this kind of abuse. You just change." She’s right. Often, I’ll see people lashing out at women they perceive as too bitchy or too confrontational. They don’t understand that we are the sum of our experiences. The toxic environment causes us to change. If people attack you online, you’re going to get defensive quickly. If people sexually harass you, you’re going to grow more inward, and more protective. It’s a very human reaction, and there is no way to face this daily reality without it changing who you are."

Undox.Me - Doxing (from dox, abbreviation of documents) or doxxing, is the Internet-based practice of researching and broadcasting personally identifiable information about an individual. The methods employed in pursuit of this information include searching publicly available databases and social media websites (like Facebook), hacking, and social engineering. It is closely related to cyber-vigilantism, hacktivism and cyber-bullying. [...] Essentially, doxing is revealing and releasing records of an individual, which were previously private, to the public. The term dox derives from the slang "dropping dox," which according to writer Mat Honan was "an old-school revenge tactic that emerged from hacker culture in

Study shows that Internet Trolls Are Narcissists, Psychopaths, and Sadists : TrueReddit
Canadian researchers conducted two internet studies with over 1,200 people. They gave personality tests to each subject along with a survey about their internet commenting behavior. They were looking for evidence that linked trolling with the Dark Tetrad of personality: narcissism, Machiavellianism, psychopathy, and sadistic personality. They found that Dark Tetrad scores were highest among people who said trolling was their favorite internet activity -

Bloggerin Kathrin Weßling über Online-Kommentare - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Kathrin Weßling: Ich weiß es nicht. Ich wohne ja im Internet und habe das Gefühl, alles schon gesehen zu haben. Eigentlich kann man sagen, es eskaliert immer dann, wenn es um Emotionen oder Politik geht. [...] Und das ist ja typisch für Trolle, dass sie Frauen wegen Äußerlichkeiten angreifen. Frage: Wie meinen Sie das? Weßling: Die Tendenz ist, dass Frauen für ihr Aussehen, ihre Sexualität beleidigt werden. Dann heißt es: Diese Frau müsste mal wieder „richtig durchgenommen“ werden. Oder: Diese Frau hat ein psychisches Problem. Männern hingegen wird oft Inkompetenz vorgeworfen, Unwissen, schlechte Recherche oder Arroganz. Ich habe bei einem Mann noch nie einen Kommentar gelesen wie: Du bist so hässlich, geh sterben. [...] Das Internet ist ein Spiegel der Menschheit. Es gibt genauso viele Frauen, die voller Neid und Frust kommentieren. Aber ich bin erstaunt, dass viele das nicht einmal anonym tun, sondern mit ihrem Klarnamen bei Facebook.

Sexualkunde-Reform in Niedersachsen: Schüler wettern gegen Abgeordnete - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Pläne der niedersächsischen Landesregierung zur Sexualkunde sind der CDU-Landtagsabgeordneten Karin Bertholdes-Sandrock nicht geheuer. Sollen Kinder wirklich darüber aufgeklärt werden, was zum Beispiel "transsexuell" bedeutet? Sollen Homosexuelle im Unterricht davon erzählen, wie sich Diskriminierung anfühlt? Lieber nicht, sagt Bertholdes-Sandrock, von Beruf Gymnasiallehrerin für Deutsch und Politik. Sie glaubt, das Thema überfordere die Jugendlichen. Schülervertreter in Niedersachsen finden das empörend. "Dass Frau Bertholdes-Sandrock davon spricht, dass es unverantwortlich sei, Schüler mit Homosexuellen unbeaufsichtigt zu lassen, ist wirklich traurig und höchst diskriminierend. Es schockiert mich", sagte Helge Feußahrens, Vorsitzender des Landesschülerrats Niedersachsen. [...] Vermittlung von Toleranz im Bildungsplan verankern. Homosexualität, Bisexualität, Transsexualität und Intersexualität solle an Schulen "verbindlich thematisiert werden". + !

After celebrity nude leaks, Apple is finally taking security a little more seriously | PandoDaily
Now it seems that Apple is at least attempting to make its efforts to fix obvious security problems with its service a little easier to understand. I’m sure that has more to do with the allegations that it was responsible for the reprehensible leak of stolen nude photographs than with a new sense of responsibility to consumers, but we’ll have to take what we can get. Maybe the lesson will stick and the company will decide to be a little more forthcoming in the future. There is no reasonable expectation of perfect security in modern society, but we can at least strive for transparency from companies like Apple when our privacy is threatened. Better to know that something can’t be kept secure than to think it’s safe and remain ignorant of any threats.

Fappening: Lawrence, Dunst, Upton - Nacktbilder von Promis - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Schon wieder sind die Frauen schuld. Dabei erklärt sich die Tatsache, dass weniger Männer-Nacktbilder durch das Netz geistern, vermutlich nicht allein dadurch, dass die Herren der Sicherheit von Apple weniger vertraut haben und bessere Schutzsysteme hatten. Sondern durch die Tatsache, dass die nackten Männer kaum jemanden interessieren. Ein nackter Mann ist ein nackter Mann. Ein Bild von einer nackten Frau, das sie angreifbar macht, ist für viele ein Grund, sich daran aufzugeilen und einen Kommentar abzugeben. Und dann ist da noch die große Frage, die über der ganzen Debatte schwebt: Warum nehmen sich Menschen überhaupt nackt auf? Für viele eine klare Sache: Eitelkeit. Entsprechende Kommentare sind von Häme durchdrungen. Sie missachten, dass Frauen nicht zwangsläufig Nacktbilder aufnehmen, um einem Mann einen Gefallen zu tun. Für viele sind sie Ausdruck, dass ihr Körper, ihre Sexualität, ihnen gehört. Sie machen Aufnahmen von sich und für sich.

If I and other industry reporters like Mat Honan don’t know how exactly to absolutely protect ourselves, because the targets and tools are always changing, how will people who don’t have our exposure to tech? The onus is on Apple and other tech platforms like Google, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft to keep their customers — us — safe. Though stolen photos are being shared that have been extracted from Android and Windows Phone backups, too, I’m singling out Apple here because Apple, beyond any other tech company, prides itself on a seamless consumer experience.

There will always be another leak, because there is always curiosity in the bodies of nude celebrity women. There is always danger in being an Other.

Men are largely free to bare their bodies as they choose without repercussion, unless, as is the case of Dave Franco with Allison Brie and Justin Verlander with Upton, the man happens to be in a picture with a young woman, collateral damage. [...] BREAKING: beneath their clothes, celebrities are naked. What these people are doing is reminding women that, no matter who they are, they are still women. They are forever vulnerable.

“I Lied To You A Few Days Ago": The Leak Messaging App And Anonymous Honesty | Fast Company | Business Innovation
[#FNAC] [ A reflection of personal values. And Marc Andreessen had his rant on twitter about it. ] "Leak’s creator, the facilitator of this budding paranoia, is a 25-year-old living in Paris named Laurent Desserrey. He says he wanted to create a “really positive and exciting tool.” A couple of friends helped Desserrey build Leak over a single weekend. It's simple. Users fill out a form with their recipient’s email address, their message, and whether they are a coworker, friend, friend-of-a-friend, family member, or “someone.” The concept was partly inspired by Secret, an app that allows users to post anonymous messages to their friends and friends of friends and fits into a neat trend of apps that allow expression without attribution. Whisper, Yik Yak, and Wut are just a few others." // & &

There's A Full-On Cyber War On Facebook - Business Insider
"Success Invites - #" - "Running a business on FB is like opening a McDonald's on an active volcano" - Fyk, 40, is a self-made millionaire who’s built his fortune almost entirely on Facebook. It’s a rewarding business but not without its challenges. Not only must he play a constant game of cat and mouse with hackers and digital thieves but he must do so on a field of battle that is constantly shifting because of Facebook’s habit of routinely — and mysteriously — tweaking its algorithm. “It’s legitimately a cyber war,” said Fyk, who describes his archenemies as tech-savvy teens who are motivated by boredom. “I make almost a quarter-million dollars a month, so I have to protect what I’m doing. That means if I have to play their kiddie game, I play. I don’t have a choice.”

GitHub Apologizes for Secrecy Around Harassment Allegations | Re/code
The tone of GitHub’s response has gone from defensive to super apologetic. >> "“Last Monday I published the least open and least transparent blog post GitHub has ever written. We failed to admit and own up to our mistakes, and for that I’m sorry. GitHub has a reputation for being transparent and taking responsibility for our actions, but last week we did neither. There’s no excuse. We can do a lot better.” + Add the wifes response =

Can Social App Secret Survive the Trolls? | Re/code
Problem is, deep down inside, some of us are jerks. It’s a common problem on the Internet — once you take away identity and accountability, it’s far easier to troll other people. Take a look at many comments sections for Web publishers (including, often, this very site). As a result, much of my Secret stream has been filled with Silicon Valley gossip and trash talk. [...] At launch, Secret co-founders David Byttow and Chrys Bader said they’re relying on a community policing system, where users can flag problem posts or block bad connections. And ideally, they said, your network will contain fewer trolls since it’s composed mostly of your friends and your friends’ friends. As at least my network has proved thus far, friend or no, not everyone is nice in the dark. [... the same ol fallacy that a community of anon people will police themselves ... ROFL. The same fallacy still exists for the same reason Admins, Support people, Mods, and Reporting Forms still exist ...]
