In a message posted yesterday, Fark founder Drew Curtis said it's no longer acceptable to make rape jokes on the site, or call women "whores or sluts," or suggest that a female victim of a violent crime was "somehow asking for it"—you know, the kind of stuff that pervades Reddit threads and comment sections all around the internet.
This is the beginning of a beautiful new trend. I applaud the Fark staff, namely the magnanimous Drew Curtis, for implementing such policies. It's about time that those who engage in misogynistic behavior get their punishment. Reddit has also expressed an interest in a zero-tolerance policy towards misogynistic speech. Maybe now this will teach civility to those who have trouble understanding the concept.
