The skills kids need to avoid getting fooled by fake news 

 


One day your kids are learning to walk and the next they're on their own sharing Russian propaganda on Youtube and Facebook.

You might think your great-uncle using an old desk top to "surf the internets" is the person at risk of accidentally spreading "fake news" on social networks, but kids these days aren't always faring so much better.

A large-scale study by the Stanford Graduate School of Education found that young people at every stage from middle school to college were consistently unable to differentiate news from advertising, or false information from the truth, a state of affairs the researchers described as “bleak.”

Mom Culture on Instagram Is a Toxic Lie 

 

Her face was practically a Sephora ad and her hair, a cascade of smooth, shiny, strategically mussed waves. She was holding her newborn with glossy manicured nails in a slightly messy room—a burp cloth on the arm of the couch, a pacifier on the table, toys on the floor. The caption of the Instagram photo began, “Life isn’t always picture-perfect.” I wondered how she had the time to do her hair and makeup when I couldn’t remember the last time I showered. I was holding my own newborn, so I couldn’t throw my phone across the room out of sheer frustration. Instead, I cried. A lot.

Yelp will now allow pro-LGBTQ businesses to highlight they are ‘open to all’ 

 

Over 1200 businesses – including Yelp, Levi’s, Lyft, and Airbnb – have launched “Open to All,” a project to get businesses to show that they don’t discriminate.

The project will give businesses two ways to show that they do not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, or other characteristics. They can post a sticker on their windows that says that they are open to all, and they can check a box for an “open to all” attribute on Yelp.

This Instagram Shames Men for Being Absolute Monsters on Dating Apps 

 

It’s a tale as old as the internet: when Alexandra Tweten would log into her online dating accounts, she’d occasionally get messages from random guys that made her uneasy. Sometimes it’d be an unsolicited dick pic. Other times the messages themselves were lewd or creepy right off the bat. “I just wouldn’t respond, or I’d think, ‘No, thanks. I'm not interested,’” Tweten tells VICE over the phone. “And then they got hostile.”

Experts Explain Why LGBTQ People Have More Eating Disorders 

 

While the National Eating Disorder Association reports that the LGBTQ community is disproportionately plagued by eating disorders, experts are saying that being a minority contributes to this dilemma.

Dr. Norman H. Kim, national director for program development at Reasons Eating Disorder Center, believes that queer people are drawn to unhealthy eating habits because of minority stress. Behaviors such as binging, purging, and undereating are a symptom of chronic social stress LGBTQ people experience as minorities, he told Stylecaster.

The rates at which queer people are having this reaction to being otherized are alarming.

Activist Dior Vargas Wants to Center People of Color in the Mental Health Conversation 

 

Mental health issues are not the sole domain of white people. Although that should be obvious, the media visibility afforded to communities of color around these issues—or lack thereof—doesn’t always reflect that. But Latina activist Dior Vargas has made it her mission to make people of color dealing with mental health issues more visible. Her voice is an important one as the mental health conversation moves forward in communities of color.

Vargas, 31, grew up in East Harlem, New York. From the age of 14, she’s been diagnosed with various mental health problems including major depression, anxiety, and borderline personality disorder. In 2014, wanting to add further focus to her activism and knowledge to her internal biblioteca, Vargas dug through the internet in search of accurate visual depictions of the multifarious, layered experience of mental health she well knows—but to little avail. Instead, she said, she was met with images of people who “nine times out of ten were white” in historical images, photographs of white women, or both.

Stop Saying Happiness Is a Choice, Because It's Not 

 

As if mindlessly scrolling through Instagram didn't make me feel bad enough — perfectly airbrushed selfies, aesthetically pleasing apartments, endless vacation pics on some remote island, your designer handbag I'll never be able to afford — coming across so-called "inspirational" messages from health and wellness accounts is a gamble between being motivated and just feeling worse about myself.

A common trope among the wellness crowd is the idea that your mood is entirely within your control. More specifically, that happiness is a choice. "Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy," a popular text image declares. "Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy," another reads. While I understand the sentiment of choosing to be positive and grateful — it's better to look at the glass half-full, right? — it undermines those of us who live every day with a mental illness.

Grindr is being used by gay men to sell and buy drugs, says new report 

 

NBC OUT released a new report that details how gay men are using Grindr to sell and buy drugs. The article features the accounts of a dozen men who recount their experiences with drugs on the popular dating app.

Here are a few of them:

“The issue with drugs has been a gay community plague since the ‘80s, but in the modern era, you don’t need a guy who knows a guy. All you need to do is open up your app and look for that capital ‘T.’”-Derrick Anderson, a Grindr user from Chicago

“Today with Grindr, men can have sex and drugs delivered to their door instantly. I think it’s gotten worse in the past couple of years. The apps are making it easier for people to find him.” – Phil McCabe, social worker and president of the National Association of LGBT Addiction Professionals

“Drugs were always sprinkled throughout the app, but now it’s nothing like before. Of course drug sales are happening on other dating apps, but at a fraction.” – George, a Grindr user in New York

“It gives me more clientele than I would normally get on the street.” – Mike, a teaching assistant in New York City who also sells drugs

The article also profiles how drugs users and sellers use various code words and emojis in headlines and profile descriptions to describe what drugs they are looking for or selling. For instance, a diamond is used to represent meth, while a snowman is used to represent cocaine.

Americans Are A Lonely Lot, And Young People Bear The Heaviest Burden 

 

Loneliness isn't just a fleeting feeling, leaving us sad for a few hours to a few days. Research in recent years suggests that for many people, loneliness is more like a chronic ache, affecting their daily lives and sense of well-being.

Now a nationwide survey by the health insurer Cigna underscores that. It finds that loneliness is widespread in America, with nearly 50 percent of respondents reporting that they feel alone or left out always or sometimes.

How Extreme Clean Eating and Exercise Almost Killed This Blogger: 'I Got It in My Head That Food Was Evil' 

 

What started out as an attempt to cut out unhealthy food and way to relieve stress turned into an obsession that almost killed Christina Rice.

The Addicted To Lovely blogger, 23, became obsessed with clean eating after experiencing digestive issues in college. She believed that cutting sugar, carbs and fat could help her get healthy, so she changed her diet to only eating food that is minimally processed.

“I had read ‘this food is going to do X, Y and Z to your body,’ and I got it in my head that that food was evil, and so I was afraid of it,” Rice told Delish.

Around the same time, the former UCLA student started exercising 75 minutes per day at least six days per week as a way to manage stress.

Before long, the combination turned into an obsession that made Rice drop 40 lbs. in under three months. Rice eventually realized was experiencing exercise addiction and orthorexia, a fixation with healthy eating that actually has an adverse effect. However, she and those in her life didn’t see how diet and exercise could be a problem.

Former Facebook Exec: 'You Don’t Realize It But You Are Being Programmed' 

 

Last month, Facebook’s first president Sean Parker opened up about his regrets over helping create social media as we know it today. “I don’t know if I really understood the consequences of what I was saying, because of the unintended consequences of a network when it grows to a billion or 2 billion people and it literally changes your relationship with society, with each other,” Parker said. “God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains.”

Chamath Palihapitiya, former vice president of user growth, also recently expressed his concerns. During a recent public discussion at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Palihapitiya—who worked at Facebook from 2005 to 2011—told the audience, “I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works.”

Women Are Now Posting Photos Of Their Uterine Fibroids All Over Reddit 

 

They can be as small as a dime or bigger than a softball. There can be just one or a baker's dozen. And tons of women have them. We're talking about uterine fibroids—which you can now see photos of all over Imgur and Reddit.

According to Dr. Suzanne Fenske, M.D., assistant professor of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive science at Mount Sinai, anywhere from 60 to 80 percent of women will experience uterine fibroids at some point in their lives. These benign tumors, which often occur in premenopausal women, can be found inside the uterine cavity, inside the uterine wall, and even on the outside of the uterus. In most cases, uterine fibroids don't cause any distressing symptoms and can be monitored at yearly well-women visits. But if the fibroids are large and start to cause symptoms, or if a woman is trying to have children, removal is often recommended, Fenske says.

TripAdvisor is now labeling hotels where sexual assaults have been reported 

 

A popular website that provides travel and hotel recommendations has started branding resorts and hotels with a red badge in cases where sexual assault have been reported on those properties.

The $1.5 billion TripAdvisor recently came under pressure after an investigation by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel showed that TripAdvisor was removing comments made by people who were reporting first-hand accounts of assaults they’d experienced at hotels and resorts.
